At media day prior to the start of the 2017-18 season, Nuggets coach Michael Malone announced a three-way point guard competition between Jamal Murray, Emmanuel Mudiay and Jameer Nelson, and despite Paul Millsap’s arrival earlier that summer, incumbent power forward Kenneth Faried declared that he still viewed himself as Denver’s starting four. A lot has changed in a year’s time…...

There was an all too familiar rhythm to Denver Nuggets games over the last two seasons. The Nuggets were difficult to stop with Nikola Jokic on the floor. If they didn’t build a lead with their Serbian center at the controls, they at least stayed competitive. But when Jokic went to get a breather, any progress they made stalled. Too…...

The logjam that was the Denver Nuggets’ power forward rotation during the 2017-18 season was dense enough to dam up the Platte River. There were six players on last year’s squad whose best position was the four: Paul Millsap, Trey Lyles, Kenneth Faried, Darrell Arthur, Juancho Hernangomez and Tyler Lydon. That number swelled to seven if you counted Wilson Chandler,…...

That’s what happened to Trey Lyles on Nov. 19 against the Los Angeles Lakers. Starting power forward Paul Millsap went down with a left wrist injury, which would eventually require surgery. Suddenly,…...

DALLAS — When Paul Millsap returned last week from a wrist injury that sidelined him for 44 games, Trey Lyles knew his minutes were going to get slashed. Lyles was playing the best basketball of his career in Millsap’s absence, averaging 13.0 points in 24.6 minutes per game. But the 22-year-old was wise enough to understand that as good as…...

DENVER — Following Tuesday’s shootaround, Nuggets coach Michael Malone pulled Trey Lyles aside to have a difficult conversation. Later that night against the Clippers, Paul Millsap would return for the first time since he underwent reconstructive surgery to repair his left wrist in November.
