After expeditiously sweeping the Los Angeles Lakers to win the Western Conference, the top-seeded Denver Nuggets have officially reached their first-ever NBA Finals. Looking to bring the Larry O’Brien Trophy to the Mile High, Denver will now prepare for a clash against the Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat.

The Nuggets have been the best team in the West all season long. On the other side, Miami is only the second No. 8 seed in NBA history to make the Finals.

Let’s take a look at the Nuggets injury report and how it may impact the 2023 NBA Finals.
