Two teams who will be watching the NBA Playoffs from home this year get set for battle on Thursday as the Denver Nuggets and New Orleans Pelicans play in New Orleans.
Both teams were in the race for a some time this year, but injuries have been the story for both teams.
The Nuggets have were always flirting with a playoff spot, as they consistently sat in 9 or 10th on the season.
However, with the injury bug hitting Danilo Gallinari all season long, the Nuggets could never pick up any steam to make a run at the playoffs. Gallinari missed time in the middle of the year with an ankle injury and that injury continued to linger for some time before he eventually was shut down for the season.
Denver has also seen Kenneth Faried, their 2nd best scorer, battle injuries. He’s continued to battle back injuries, but did finally return in the team’s loss to the Mavericks. Faried looked extremely rusty, finishing with just 7 field goal attempts in 22 minutes of action.
Denver has been a poor road team this season, going just 14-24 SU.
New Orleans Pelicans
Like their counterparts here, injuries have been a major problem for the Pelicans.
They have been dealing with many injuries all season long though. It started prior to the season and it reached all the way to about two weeks ago when Anthony Davis was shut down. Davis, who was leading the Pelicans back into the race, just could never get to 100% on the season.
The load the rest of the way will be carried by Jrue Holiday. Like his teammates, he’s continued to battle injuries all season long.
Holiday finished with 22, 6, and 6 in the teams win over the Knicks last time out as he certainly would have made an impact on this team had he been 100% healthy the entire year.
