This year’s Nuggets will be much better than last year’s version just by being healthy, but are they a playoff team?

Five games is the standard marijuana suspension, and you have to test positive three separate times to earn it.

If the Nuggets stay healthy, they are again a playoff threat in the West.

San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to explain how a python ate your family pet… J.J. Hickson/Kenneth Faried, Denver Nuggets. Let’s be clear — Denver snapped the Los Angeles Clippers 11-game win streak because the Clippers were tired and off. The back-to-back with the second game in Denver trap…

JaVale McGee hasn’t played since the sixth game of the NBA season due to a stress fracture in his left leg and it has showed on the defensive end for Denver — opposing centers are shooting 50.6 percent against the Nuggets and teams are averaging 45.2 points a game in the paint against them, 26th…

More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now. 1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

The Nuggets are a bit injured at the moment, and have gotten rolled by large margins in their last two games. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t any highlights along the way. J.J. Hickson got free on a pick-and-roll against the Pistons on Saturday, and despite Andre Drummond being in the vicinity to protect the…

The Denver Nuggets have struggled up front this season — opposing centers are shooting 50.6 percent against the Nuggets and teams are averaging 44.9 points a game in the paint against them, 25th in the NBA. A big part of the reason for that is JaVale McGee has only played five games for them this…

The NBA announced the field for the Rising Stars Challenge, but the teams won’t be selected until next week. A sucker for any opportunity to hold a mock draft, I enlisted Kurt into holding our own. We followed the same positional rules whoever picks the teams on TNT next Thursday – the general managers have yet to…

LaMarcus Aldridge was good in the first half Thursday night, scoring 14 points but needing 14 shots to get there. So at the half Denver coach Brian Shaw decided not to make any changes, leaving J.J. Hickson (primarily) on an island with Aldridge. That strategy backfired. In the second half Aldridge dropped 30 points on…

This is how a coaching adjustment can change a game. In the first half, Ty Lawson was getting into the lane and carving up the Trail Blazers — he had 13 points, nine assists and led Denver to 67 first half points. Portland was getting its offense from LaMarcus Aldridge, who had 14 points in…

The Suns’ Gerald Green got a lot of play last night for his impressive reverse throwdown on a breakaway, but there were no defenders in his way on that one. That’s why I think J.J. Hickson had the best dunk of the night — the Nuggets’ big man went up as the Jazz’s Derrick Favors…

The Memphis Grizzlies traded Rudy Gay and reached the Western Conference Finals. The Toronto Raptors traded Gay and are streaking toward home-court advantage in the first-round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Regardless of anything Gay did, his perceived value dropped considerably in the last two years. But might Gay be taking control of his own…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to find Stephen Colbert’s cameo in “Hobbit 2”…. Blake Griffin, Los Angeles Clippers.

There were no games on Thanksgiving to bring you highlights from, so we have one more from Wednesday night. Denver’s offense has opened up since JaVale McGree went down — driving lanes have have parted like the Red Sea, and the Nuggets feel like they are running more, and guys are working hard on the…
