Will Barton and Jameer Nelson will miss Tuesday night’s game against the Pelicans due to injuries.
Barton has a sore foot and said he is making good progress toward a return. Nelson has a sore calf. Both Barton and Nelson missed Sunday’s victory over the Heat. Jamal Murray played 28 minutes in that one and scored nine points, but Emmanuel Mudiay resurfaced to play 32 minutes and score 17 points, grab four rebounds, and dish out nine assists. Mudiay will likely see significant minutes against the Pelicans on Tuesday.
#Nuggets G Jameer Nelson (calf) is out of tonite's game against New Orleans. So Emmanuel Mudiay will again get significant time as a reserve
