For Isaiah Thomas, nothing about his grueling 10-month rehab from season-ending hip surgery last March has been easy. But surely the most difficult chapter of his journey back to the court took place over the last few months as Thomas was restricted to watching his team surge to the top of the Western Conference standings from the sidelines in street clothes.…...

If you flashback to the days leading up to the 2018 trade deadline, you watched a Nuggets team that was straddling the line of playoff contention, bouncing back and forth between the eighth and ninth seeds with a backup point guard dilemma which needed to be addressed. Denver had been hemorrhaging points while Nikola Jokic sat and Emmanuel Mudiay captained…

Wind takes questions from the Fan Hotline on Juancho Hernangomez and the Nuggets’ organic chemistry, Jamal Murray and where he’s struggled so far this season, if Mason Plumlee’s three can jumpstart Denver’s three-point shooting and how Isaiah Thomas, Will Barton, Jarred Vanderbilt and Michael Porter Jr will impact the rotation if/when they return from injury.

While the Minnesota Timberwolves were firing social media shots at each other last month, the Denver Nuggets were firing Spikeballs. Only five months had passed since the teams faced each other in a play-in game to determine which team went to the playoffs.

Monte Morris knows he’s a better scorer than he gets credit for. Despite posting impressive offensive numbers over his four-year run at Iowa State, Morris was known almost exclusively in the lead-up to the 2017 draft for the record assist-to-turnover ratio he registered in college. Morris attempted and converted his fair share of high-leverage shots in Ames, Iowa, but the…...

Nikola Jokic is not your typical NBA superstar, but you probably know that by now. In the offseason, he prefers the stables to the clubs. Jokic acquired a second horse this summer to go with his pride and joy, Dreamcatcher, who the 7-footer says can eat a carrot out of his pocket. Her name is Bella Marguerite. “She doesn’t like…...

Michael Malone had gotten used to the humdrum. The offices the Nuggets’ coaching staff inhabit are just down the hall from the team’s locker room. Last season, Malone’s crew didn’t have much noise to contend with as they planned a practice or strategized for a game. “Maybe some music,” Malone said. “But you didn’t ever hear chatter.” But last week,…...

At media day prior to the start of the 2017-18 season, Nuggets coach Michael Malone announced a three-way point guard competition between Jamal Murray, Emmanuel Mudiay and Jameer Nelson, and despite Paul Millsap’s arrival earlier that summer, incumbent power forward Kenneth Faried declared that he still viewed himself as Denver’s starting four.
