Denver Nuggets Starting Lineup Analysis

The Nuggets starting lineup this season was decimated by injuries before it started as Jamal Murray went down in the playoffs last season. Michael Porter Jr. struggled to get healthy and ended up missing the entire series. This led to Nikola Jokic carrying the team on its back. Jokic led the team in just about everything. Aaron Gordon and Will Barton were the next best options around him and started 43 games alongside Jokic.

Denver's backcourt rotated quite a bit this season, between Monte Morris, Will Barton, Austin Rivers, and Facundo Campazzo. This says it all about Jokic's MVP Campaign.
