Hyland played in the game last year as an injury replacement, but gets the nod from the jump this year. In last years game, Hyland scored 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting from the field, 2-of-7 from three.

The news of Hyland’s appearance in the rising stars game comes just a day after numerous reports that Denver could move the second-year guard before the NBA Trade Deadline next Thursday February 9th.
The #Nuggets are gauging the value of Bones Hyland ahead of next week's trade deadline, two league sources told @denverpost. The team believes it has traction on potentially acquiring a first-round pick, a source said.https://t.co/uBCXLEEgoo— Mike Singer (@msinger) January 30, 2023
Whether Hyland will still be on the Nuggets when that game takes place remains to be seen as the game isn't till over a week after the trade deadline on February 17th. Last week, we asked Nuggets fans whether Denver needs to make a deal before the deadline and the results are posted below. Also, we asked whether or not the Nuggets should move a player like Hyland or someone else like Zeke Nnaji. Thanks to everyone that voted!
