Injuries loom large as Nuggets face Jazz

The Denver Nuggets have split their first four games of the NBA restart, and they sit exactly where they were at the beginning of play in the bubble: in third place in the Western Conference.

One observation is that Denver squandered a chance to overtake the Los Angeles Clippers for the No. 2 seed, but the upside is the Nuggets have not lost ground despite not having three starters for three games. They also sat four of them in a 125-115 loss to Portland on Thursday.

Denver (45-24) might stay shorthanded when it faces the Utah Jazz near Orlando on Saturday afternoon. The Nuggets have a two-game lead over Utah after the Jazz's loss to San Antonio on Friday, and a 1.5-game lead over Houston, which sits at No. 4.
