Three players of the Denver Nuggets have been ruled out for the game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday night.

More specifically, the Nuggets will face the Lakers without Will Barton (right hamstring strain), Monte Morris (right hamstring strain) and Jamal Murray (season-ending left ACL surgery).

In addition, Zeke Nnaji is listed as questionable for the contest with a left ankle sprain.

Denver is currently on a five-game winning streak, climbing to third in the standings (43-21). Meanwhile, the Lakers have dropped to sixth, at 36-27.

If things don’t change in the remaining regular season games, the Nuggets and the Lakers will clash in the first round of the playoffs.
