Predictions

The Denver Nuggets might have lost their last game against the Celtics but are clearly a stacked team in terms of pure talent. Given how balanced their roster is and their improved defense, they surely have an edge over the Warriors in this matchup.

Golden State Warriors- Injury updates and lineup prediction

The Golden State Warriors had a pretty comfortable victory against the Houston Rockets as they beat them 125-109. But this victory did come at a huge cost, as rookie James Wiseman suffered from a terrible injury.

For the next game against the Nuggets, the Warriors will be missing some key players due to injuries. Apart from the Achilles injury to Klay Thompson, the Warriors will also miss their rookie James Wiseman, who suffered from a torn meniscus. Guard Kelly Oubre Jr, is also sidelined with a wrist injury. Even backup center Eric Paschall is out with a hip injury.

The Warriors face a Nuggets team who are in some great form. It will take a Steph Curry masterclass for the Dubs to win this game against the Nuggets.

Denver Nuggets- Injury updates and predicted lineup

After winning eight games in a row, the Nuggets lost their most recent game against the Celtics. The Nuggets had a big lead against Boston but uncharacteristically had a pretty sloppy defensive display in the second half, allowing Celtics to have a 39-2 run at one point who ultimately blew out Denver 105-87.

The Nuggets have some injury concerns. Guard Shaquille Harrison is out to the medical protocols. Starting point guard, Jamal Murray is questionable as he recovers from a knee injury.

The Nuggets have the perfect opportunity to get back to winning ways as they face an injury-riddled Warriors side.
