What you need to know about the Nuggets

Denver has been hit hard by injuries and COVID-19 issues this season. The Nuggets are currently without star guard Jamal Murray (knee) and forward Michael Porter Jr. (back). Jeff Green and Zeke Nnaji, along with head coach Michael Malone, are on the COVID-19 list. 

Star big man Nikola Jokic has had to step up even more than usual, scoring 26 points, grabbing 21 rebounds and dishing out 11 assists in a loss to Utah on Wednesday. Jokic now has 64 career triple-doubles and will be aiming for No. 65 on Friday night which would tie for the seventh most in NBA history. The Nuggets have only covered the spread once in their last seven home games. 

What you need to know about the Kings

Sacramento is still trying to put things together this season as well, entering this contest on a two-game losing streak. The Kings came up short against Atlanta on Wednesday, despite the Hawks playing without Trae Young, John Collins and Bogdan Bogdanovic. Sacramento also lost to the Lakers without Anthony Davis, so it will be hoping to take care of business against a hampered Denver team on Friday night. 

The Kings will be without Richaun Holmes after he went into the protocol on Saturday. Terence Davis missed Wednesday’s game with an ankle injury, while Chimezie Metu remains in the protocol as well. Sacramento has not covered the spread in its last five road games.
