Monday, Jan. 20 marks the final day for fans to vote for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game. Voting will close on at 9:59 p.m. MT on Monday, which is shortly after the Denver Nuggets take on the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Monday also marks the final “two-for-one” day, as each fan vote will count twice on Monday, making it a prime opportunity to vote for your favorite Nuggets! Fans can submit one full ballot each day via the NBA App and NBA.com, as well as on Google and through Google Assistant.

Nikola Jokić currently sits in fifth place among Western Conference frontcourt players, as the Serbian big man has fueled Denver’s recent success. In the month of January, Jokić is averaging 23.8 points, 9.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game on 54.5 percent shooting from the field. The 2019 first-team All-NBA center secured his 23rd double-double of the season against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday with 30 points and 10 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Will Barton III has also stepped up in recent games as Denver navigates injuries to several key starters. Barton III has averaged 17.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game throughout the month of January. His impressive performance against the Golden State Warriors (31 points, seven assists and five rebounds) helped fuel a 19-point comeback and overtime victory.

“If you were to say Denver should have a second All-Star, Will Barton should get that nod,” Nuggets head coach Michael Malone said following Saturday’s practice.

Gary Harris continues to provide high-quality defense on a nightly basis while Jamal Murray has continued to serve as the team’s second-leading scorer. Although he has missed time due to injury recently, Paul Millsap has been a steadying presence on defense this season for Denver.
