NEW ORLEANS (AP) Denver Nuggets coach Melvin Hunt says he's resting forwards Wilson Chandler and Darrell Arthur and guard Randy Foye against New Orleans on Sunday night.
Meanwhile, the Pelicans say guard Tyreke Evans is starting after missing one game with a sprained left ankle.

Like a lot of teams at this time of the year, the Denver Nuggets are showing some wear and tear. Here’s the latest news on the injury front as the Nuggets get set to take on the Utah Jazz Friday night:
Center Jusuf Nurkic, who suffered a sprained ankle in the fourth quarter of Denver’s 110-96 loss to the Phoenix Suns Wednesday, definitely won’t play Friday. Though X-Rays were...
Danilo Gallinari had 22 points in his best performance of the year, but it wasn’t enough for the Denver Nuggets as they fell 110-82 to the Brooklyn Nets Monday night.
Denver’s defense couldn’t stop a Nets squad that ranks just 25th in the league in points per-game. Seven Nets posted double-figures in points, with center Brook Lopez leading the way off the bench with 19.
It's not looking good for the slumping Denver Nuggets, who are quickly starting to fade in the Western Conference.
The Philadelphia 76ers occupy last place in the East, and things could become all the more ugly if Michael Carter-Williams can't go.
Offensively challenged Denver tries to get it together as it opens a three-game road trip against the 76ers on Tuesday night.

Denver, CO – Cody Zeller had a career-high 21 points and the visiting Charlotte Hornets had no problem handling the Denver Nuggets Saturday, cruising to an easy 104-86 win.
That final score is deceiving – the game was never that close, as Denver scored 34 points in the fourth quarter to prevent the loss from reaching epic status. This is the Nuggets second straight blowout loss...
John Wall made a pair of free throws with 10 seconds remaining to give the Washington Wizards a 117-112 lead over the Denver Nuggets. All the Wizards needed to do were play tough defense, not foul, and leave Denver victors. But somehow they missed that memo and nearly gave away another game.
Washington started off the sequence well, forcing a missed jumper from Darrell Arthur. Unfortunately...
A dismal opening to the season is finally in the rear-view mirror for the Denver Nuggets. The Utah Jazz's poor stretch may seemingly never end.
The opposite-trending teams square off Monday in Utah for their first of four matchups this season.
Denver (8-8) rebounded from a 1-6 start with seven wins in their last nine contests following its 122-97 rout of Phoenix on Friday. All five...

When he is either named to his first All-Star team or suddenly playing in China, we will be able to point to this weekend as the one during which we were treated to everything that Dion Waiters has to offer. The good and the bad, the mundane and the bizarre, on-court and off-, were all on display before, during, and after the Cleveland Cavaliers’ game against the Denver Nuggets...

After ending a brief win streak, the Portland Trail Blazers will try to bounce back by continuing their stingy and often successful play at home.
They'll also seek to add to their recent dominance over the scuffling Denver Nuggets on Sunday night.
Portland (3-3) couldn't keep rolling after a season high 62-point first half Saturday against the Los Angeles Clippers and scored 40 points...

Two preseason games in – a 98-95 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers Monday and a 114-101 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday – and the Denver Nuggets are starting to resemble the team everyone will see heading into the 2014-15 regular season.

What I’m about to say probably qualifies me as some sort of Elite Level Hater, but you’ll have to pardon me for not getting as excited as the rest of the basketball world over this Kevin Durant crossover. Yeah, he puts the Nuggets’ Darrell Arthur on skates — twice — but not enough to shake him entirely. And Durant ultimately fires up a contested off-balance shot that goes...
