The Denver Nuggets are running out of players for their game tonight against the Chicago Bulls. Yesterday, the Nuggets added R.J. Hampton to the injury report due to health and safety protocols and today Markus Howard and Facundo Campazzo were added due to contract tracing.
UPDATE:— Denver Nuggets (@nuggets) March 1, 2021
Markus Howard (Health and Safety Protocols) is OUT.
Facundo Campazzo (Health and Safety Protocols) is DOUBTFUL. https://t.co/XIdp6PT7ux
It’s looking like the Nuggets will have just 11 available players for their game tonight, which is three more than the required eight to have a game:
Alright, assuming Facu Campazzo is out, the Nuggets will have 11 players available:— Ryan Blackburn (@NBABlackburn) March 1, 2021
Morris, Murray, Barton, Dozier, Porter, Nnaji, Vlatko, Bol, Greg, Jokic, and Hart
In a game the Nuggets desperately need to win, they are going to have to do it even through they’re incredible shorthanded. We’ve seen this same song and dance before last season when the Nuggets won with just seven players in Utah on the second night of a back-to-back.
Hopefully they can drum up some more short handed magic tonight in Chicago.
