Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers are in Denver to face Nikola Jokic and Nuggets
After a double overtime loss against the Sacramento Kings on Friday, the LA Clippers are looking to get back in the win column against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday evening. The Clippers have struggled mightily vs. Denver over the last several seasons, especially on the road. This game will be an opportunity to make a statement after dropping a heartbreaker to Sacramento just two days ago.
For the Clippers, their injury report looks the same way it did against the Kings. Ivica Zubac remains sidelined with a calf strain, but everyone else is good to go. For the Nuggets, their injury report is a bit longer. Starting forward Aaron Gordon will miss this game with a left rib contusion, and he will be joined on the sidelines by Zeke Nnaji and Collin Gillespie.
On the second night of a back to back, the Nuggets are listing Jamal Murray, Christian Braun, and Michael Porter Jr. as probable. All three players will likely end up available, but the team has them listed on the injury report on the last half of a back to back.
Having been blown out by the Memphis Grizzlies just last night, the Nuggets did not play any of their starters big minutes. The team will likely be extra motivated to get back in the win column, especially with the Grizzlies gaining a bit of ground on the one-seed with their win last night.
