- Nuggets forward Darrell Arthur will miss his third straight game with a left groin strain. Denver gets back the services of forward Anthony Randolph, who was unavailable for two games because of a left ankle sprain. He did not play in Wednesday’s win at Golden State.
- Cavaliers forward Luol Deng gets a second crack at the Nuggets and his first with Cleveland. Deng had one of his worst games of the season when he came to Denver as a member of the Chicago Bulls on Nov. 21. He was 3-for-18 from the field and had just six points. He did grab 13 rebounds. Since coming to the Cavaliers on Jan. 7 he is averaging 18 points and 26 in the past two games.
- Denver coach Brian Shaw missed Friday’s shootaround with a sinus infection. Shaw did address the media pregame and said he will be fine on the sidelines tonight.
