The game between the Miami Heat and the Denver Nuggets was one of the most anticipated ones after the end of the first contest between the two teams in Denver.
However, both Erik Spoelstra and Michael Malone have to face a huge abundance of injuries in key players. More specifically, Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro and Markieff Morris are out for Monday’s contest.
Butler suffered a tailbone injury in the previous game against the Chicago Bulls. Erik Spoelstra said “a lot of guys wouldn’t have been able to” finish any contest with that type of injury.
As for the Nuggets, they will certainly be without Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr. and PJ Dozier, who are out due to long-term injuries. At the same time, Nikola Jokic’s and Nah’shon Hyland’s participation will be decided just before the start of tonight’s contest.
