Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle sprain) will make his return to the lineup Tuesday against the Jazz.
Mudiay missed the last four games and will return to his role as the backup point guard behind Jamal Murray. The 21-year-old will look to reclaim his 18-20 minutes per game, but may find it a struggle with some emerging young guards in the Nuggets backcourt. He can be safely ignored.
While Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) is healthy enough to play tonight, there’s a chance he won’t be in Michael Malone’s rotation vs Jazz. Mudiay had been Denver’s backup point guard all year but has missed the team’s past 4 games with the injury @BSNDenver
