Nuggets at Warriors Preseason Preview
Looking to bounce back from consecutive losses to the Chicago Bulls and Phoenix Suns, the Nuggets continue their preseason schedule tonight as they take on the Golden State Warriors from Des Moines, Iowa.
Denver will be without forwards Danilo Gallinari and JJ Hickson, center JaVale McGee and guards Nate Robinson and Randy Foye (sore wrist). However, this will provide the Nuggets coaching staff to continue to get a great look at the different lineup combinations and rotations.
Expect to see an expanded role for rookie guard Gary Harris in the absence of Randy Foye. The tenacious defender will get his chance to help slow down the Warriors prolific backcourt. Fellow rookie Jusuf Nurkic will once again be one of the key players on the floor. In four games this preseason the rookie center has averaged 7.3 points and 9.8 rebounds (fifth in the NBA) in 19.3 minutes per game.
The Nuggets will travel to Las Vegas following the game in preperation for another preseason contest against the Los Angeles Clippers Satuday night at Mandalay Bay.
