As part of their preparation for the 2012 NBA Draft, the Denver Nuggets held five predraft workouts featuring 29 players.

One of those players, John Jenkins of Vanderbilt, worked out twice at Pepsi Center – once on May 22 and again on June 21. The Nuggets also evaluated and interviewed dozens of prospects at the predraft combine in Chicago earlier this month.

The research will be put to use Thursday night as the Nuggets hold the 20th, 38th and 50th overall selections.
