The Nuggets will be without Will Barton (left knee soreness) and Gary Harris (right hip strain) for Monday's Game 1 against the Jazz.
Neither player has been able to play in the bubble, and the Nuggets will be missing two of their usual starters in a tough playoff matchup. It's a tough blow to Denver's depth and they'll need to cobble together a wing rotation and lean on lineups featuring players that just haven't played a ton together. Michael Porter Jr. and Torrey Craig will likely start, as they did in Denver's seeding games, while Monte Morris, Troy Daniels and PJ Dozier should see extra run off the bench. At this point there's no timetable for a return from either Barton or Harris.
