The NBA playoffs were scheduled to begin last Saturday, April 18th. It’s been over a month since the league went on hiatus, so it will probably come as no surprise to learn that the Nuggets are getting anxious to return to the court. This week, several players took to social media to either express sadness that the playoffs are not happening right now, or to look back on exciting moments on the court.
Monte Morris tweeted this message on Saturday, the day the playoffs were set to begin:

Paul Millsap posted this photo montage to Instagram, displaying various moments throughout his time as a Nugget:
Jamal Murray threw it back on Instagram on Monday with this highlight from Game 4 of the Nuggets matchup with the San Antonio Spurs in the first round of the playoffs last season:
Lastly, Gary Harris took to Instagram to post a cool photo of the 2020 version of himself matching up with the 2014 (rookie) version of himself, while also expressing desire to get back on the court:
Since there’s no telling how soon it will be until we see the Nuggets all back on the court playing basketball, it’s nice to be able to get a glimpse into the lives of the players as they go through what we are all going through at this time - a desire to return to normalcy.
