Injury news around “The Mile High” is almost non-existent right now. After two playoff series in 2023, Denver’s roster seems to be as healthy as they have been in a few seasons.
Notably, Jamal Murray (leg) and Michael Porter Jr. (back) have missed considerable time in recent years. Right now, both men seem built strong for the postseason run.
Before the series begins, the Nuggets are -155 favorites to advance past the Lakers (LAL +130 to advance) at DraftKings Sportsbook. For Game 1 on Tuesday, Denver is a 5.5-point favorite at home.
