Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Sounds like Kyle Anderson is preparing to play as well. Will find out officially in about 15 minutes. – 6:12 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Without Joker, Jamal, KCP or AG, MPJ might shoot 30 times tonight. Kinda, semi, sorta hoping it happens. – 6:00 PM
Katy Winge @katywinge
Coach Malone said he doesn’t know how the Nuggets are playing a game 22 hours after the game last night in Denver.
“I think it’s ridiculous. I think it’s a joke.”
Said it’s a recipe for disaster.
Nuggets played at 7pmMT in Denver last night and tip-off tonight is 5pmMT in MN. – 5:37 PM
Katy Winge @katywinge
Nikola Jokić, Jamal Murray, Aaron Gordon, and KCP did not make the trip to Minnesota and will not play tonight vs the Timberwolves. – 5:31 PM

The Frozen backpack CB has to have as part of his “rookie duties” hits different in Minnesota 😂 PM
Denver Nuggets @nuggets
The cold never bothered CB anyway ❄

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Chris Finch said Jordan McLaughlin will make his return tonight. – 5:23 PM
David Thorpe @coachthorpe
I did a search for best 5 man lineups who have played at least 10 games. Found interesting things; 76ers had 2 bench/starters lineups in top 6. Denver, Warriors, Hawks top 3 starting groups. Lakers best lineup ranks 6th overall, and doesn’t include AD. Can someone ✅ if accurate? – 5:20 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Chris Finch said Jordan McLaughlin is available to play tonight – 5:18 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Jordan McLaughlin out here for pregame warmups. All signs pointing to his return tonight. (Listed as questionable) PM

Gordon Gross @GMoneyNuggs
I would like to extend a polite invitation for Luka to consider the Nuggets in future trade demands if Dallas continues to make him walk over broken glass at work. Just putting it out there. – 4:35 PM
NBA Math @NBA_Math
Including this season, 1,357 qualified seasons have seen a player average at least 20 points per game.
Nikola Jokic, Kevin Durant, and Joel Embiid are all putting up historic figures in 2022-23 and deserve plenty of appreciation! PM

NBA Math @NBA_Math
In NBA history, 1,357 qualified seasons have seen a player average at least 20 points per game. You can see all of them here, and you may notice that 2022-23 Nikola Jokic has the best TS% of the entire bunch (with room to spare). PM

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
The Nuggets are 4.5 games clear of the Grizzlies for the No. 1 seed in the West. They’re tied with the Celtics for the best record in the NBA.

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
I’ve seen a lot of people ask how the Mavericks are gonna defend opposing wings without Dorian Finney-Smith, but…
How on Earth do they plan to handle Nikola Jokic with their current roster?
That was a preexisting concern but a less relevant one as they weren’t all-in yet – 3:51 PM
Khobi Price @khobi_price
Final: Magic 119, Hornets 113.
At 22-32, Orlando has already matched its win total from last season.
The Magic go 3-1 on the road trip with victories over the 76ers, Timberwolves and Hornets. – 3:21 PM
Minnesota Timberwolves @Timberwolves
great player on the court, but even better person off the court.
@Wendell Moore‘s grandfather is his biggest inspiration.
Inspired By presented by @Deluxe: PM

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray, Aaron Gordon, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are all doubtful tonight at Timberwolves. Nuggets likely without four starters on the second night of their back-to-back. – 1:53 PM
Vinny Benedetto @VBenedetto
Whole lotta doubtful on the Nuggets injury report for tonight’s game in Minnesota. PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
I’m guessing Ja Morant will be elevated to start the All-Star Game. He was third in fan voting and overall in the guard voting.
Who replaces Stephen Curry will be interesting. De’Aaron Fox? Anthony Edwards? Someone else? – 1:36 PM
