    More big news on the injury front, Plumlee is expected to miss 2-4 weeks. I know they didnít plan on playing Bol Bol at all but heís been playing in the G League so maybe he gets to play soon? If not I anticipate a small ball lineup with Grant and Vanderbilt, possibly Cancar getting some PT somewhere on the court as well.

    Sure enough, after a good game where he played 30 minutes, he sits out tonight due to back tightness. I hope this doesnít become a Ďthingí.

    I'm thinking 15-20 minutes a night max is good for him for now.

    I had lower back surgery on 2 discs my senior year of high school, redshirted freshman year of college and competed sophomore year of college. There were still flare ups and little episodes like this. The best he can do is not rush it.

    I donít mind the load management, but in the back of my head, I keep seeing Sam Bowie. I hope thatís not the direction it goes

    I loved watching Jokic carry the team in the closing minutes. It was a thing of beauty.

    Bucks with a 24 to 2 free throw advantage through three quarters. No respect.

    Excellent road victory tonight! Statement game for the Nuggets. And thatís with the refs letting The Freak travel and get phantom fouls all night.

    This team might be better without Murray.

    Lots of bad calls but we got a good road win tonight. Hard to know what to make of this team.

    What a game! Did this Nuggets team just turn a corner after two impressive back-to-back wins? Too early to tell but this team has serious potential as long as MPJ stays healthy. He reminds me of other greats before coming of age. He's so hungry for greatness.

    MPJ can legitimately be a 20-10 guy with high upside passing. MPJ and Jokic are the future. I didn't like the Murray max when it happened, and I know it's easy to kick him while he is down, however it's going to quickly become a contract we will want to move on from.
