Returns to contact work

Dozier missed the final 17 games (including playoffs) of the season due to a strained adductor, and his recovery extended well into the summer. The guard told the media Wednesday that before he returned to Denver, he hadn't played 5-on-5 since his final appearance of the regular season back on May 3 against the Lakers. Regardless, Dozier appears to be fully healthy with training camp set to begin next week. The former South Carolina standout will be part of the crew of guards who will help compensate for the absence of Jamal Murray (knee) to begin the season.

Hopes to start Opening Night

With Jamal Murray (knee) set to miss at least the first few months of the season, the Nuggets have an obvious hole at point guard and -- on paper, at least -- Morris would make sense as the fill-in starter. It's not a guarantee, however, as the Nuggets tried both Facundo Campazzo and Austin Rivers in the starting five late last season, and both players remain on the roster for 2021-22. Regardless of how the lineup shakes out, Morris projects as the best fantasy option of the three until Murray returns. Last season, the Iowa State product averaged 10.2 points, 2.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.1 threes per game to go with a 48/38/80 shooting line.

Agrees to multi-year extension

The Nuggets traded Gary Harris, R.J. Hampton and a 2025 first-round pick for Gordon in March of 2020. The 6-foot-8 forward went on to average 10.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists across 27.1 minutes in 35 games for Denver. He struggled mightily in Round 1 against the Suns, posting single-digit scoring totals in the final three games of the series. The Nuggets will need another playmaker opposite Nikola Jokic to start the 2021-22 campaign, as Jamal Murray is expected to miss at least a few months to start the season. The extension also includes a player option that could keep Gordon tied to the Nuggets through the 2025-26 season. While retaining the 2016 No. 7 overall pick was clearly important to Denver, it raises questions about whether or not the Nuggets will be able to afford an extension of that size -- or bigger -- for Michael Porter Jr. next offseason.
