Both franchises came into this campaign with massive expectations from the NBA community, but have struggled at times. However, there's All-Star talent on display, as well as a couple of MVP candidates, which makes this game a must-watch.
Team News - Denver Nuggets
The Denver Nuggets don't have any fresh injury concerns at the moment. They do, however, still have a key player sidelined.
Michael Porter Jr. has been integral to the Nuggets this season, and was beginning to look like a vital part of the starting lineup. Porter was on his way to becoming the team's third option on offense when he was ordered by the NBA to quarantine due to health and safety protocols.
Since then, the Denver Nuggets have struggled at times on the offensive end, and the team will undoubtedly miss him against the Brooklyn Nets.
Team News - Brooklyn Nets
The Denver Nuggets aren't the only ones who will have key offensive absentees in tonight's game.
Tyler Johnson will be sidelined as he has reportedly contracting COVID-19. More importantly, Kyrie Irving is also a serious doubt. The mercurial guard has missed the last two games due to personal reasons. The controversy around his continued absence is expected to grow as reports suggest he is unlikely to feature against the Denver Nuggets.
Injured: Nicolas Claxton, Spencer Dinwiddie
Doubtful: Kyrie Irving
