The top five scorers from last season returned to Denver, but it’s their bench unit that has a distinctly different feel to it heading into Wednesday’s season opener.
With guard Isaiah Thomas still out as he recovers from hip surgery, Malone said that Monte Morris is going to play, while the other two significant contributors off the bench are expected to be Trey Lyles and Mason Plumlee. Lyles will be a focal point of the team’s offensive system as he has the ability to be a three-level scorer (paint, midrange and 3-point line) and he should be rostered in 14-team leagues.
