Injuries Caused Nuggets To Stumble

The Denver Nuggets looked like an NBA championship contender after acquiring Aaron Gordon at the trade deadline as a rash of injuries waylaid other teams.

But the injury bug caught up to the Nuggets, who lost superstar Jamal Murray to a torn ACL in April.

Behind MVP Nikola Jokic the Nuggets went 13-5 down the stretch to earn the third playoff seed in the West. Jokic played great in the playoffs but he was ejected in Denver’s decisive Game 4 loss to the Phoenix Suns for committing a flagrant foul. The ejection shocked players across the NBA.
