Elfrid Payton will come off the bench in Thursday's game against the Nuggets after missing a significant amount of time with a hamstring strain.
Payton will come back after missing the last 17 games. He will be in competition with Frank Ntilikina and Dennis Smith Jr. for the starting point guard role, a role that he had prior to his injury. This is a situation to monitor to see how the rotation shakes out now that all three guards are healthy.
