  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Gets garbage-time run in return

    Tyson (finger) played four minutes in Wednesday's 117-96 win over the Kings, finishing with three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and two rebounds.

    Back in action after missing the last five games with a finger fracture and sprain, Tyson was out of head coach Michael Malone's rotation while the game was competitive, as he didn't leave the bench until the Nuggets held a 22-point lead with 3:34 remaining in the fourth quarter. Tyson could link up with the G League's Grand Rapids Gold in the coming days if his playing time with the Nuggets remains scarce.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Good to go Wednesday

    Tyson (finger) is available for Wednesday's game versus the Kings.

    Tyson has been upgraded from questionable to available Wednesday after missing Denver's last three contests with a left finger sprain. However, the rookie forward is unlikely to receive significant playing time against Sacramento.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Questionable for Wednesday

    Tyson (finger) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Sacramento.

    Tyson is currently dealing with a left finger sprain/fracture. If he is unable to suit up Wednesday, his absence is unlikely to affect the Nuggets' rotation, as the rookie has appeared in just one contest since Dec. 14.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Sidelined once again

    Tyson (finger) won't play against the Warriors on Sunday.

    Tyson is set to miss a fifth straight game, and the rookie doesn't have a timetable for his return. His next chance to play will come against the Kings on Wednesday, but even if he ends up being available, he's not expected to have a big role off the bench.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Another absence coming

    Tyson (finger) is out for Friday's game versus the Trail Blazers.

    Tyson's absence streak will extend to four games Friday due to a left finger sprain. His next chance to suit up is Sunday's matchup with Golden State.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Still sidelined

    Tyson (finger) is out for Thursday's game versus the Wizards.

    Hunter will miss his third straight game Thursday due to a left finger sprain. However, the rookie forward's absence won't affect Denver's rotation.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Remains out Wednesday

    Tyson (finger) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

    Tyson will be sidelined for a second straight game to close out the Nuggets' first-half schedule due to what the team is listing as a left finger sprain/fracture. The rookie second-round pick has made just nine appearances for the Nuggets this season, but with Jamal Murray (tibias) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (hamstring) listed as questionable but considered unlikely to play against Sacramento, Tyson may have had a chance to pick up some minutes Wednesday if he was healthy.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Sits out with finger fracture

    Tyson was ruled out ahead of Monday's 112-95 loss to the Bucks due to a left finger sprain/fracture.

    Tyson had been playing for the G League's Grand Rapids Gold prior to being recalled Monday, so he presumably sustained the injury in a recent game or practice with the Nuggets' affiliate. Even if he's cleared to play in Wednesday's game against the Kings, the rookie second-round pick is unlikely to be included in head coach Michael Malone's rotation.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Recalled from G League

    The Nuggets recalled Tyson from the G League's Grand Rapids Gold on Monday.

    The Nuggets could be without Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (hamstring) for Monday's game against the Bucks, so Tyson will provide the team with some extra depth on the wing.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Recalled from G League

    The Nuggets recalled Tyson from the G League's Grand Rapids Gold on Tuesday.

    Denver could be shorthanded for Tuesday's game against the 76ers, as their entire starting lineup is listed as questionable with a variety of injuries. Tyson hasn't gotten many opportunities with the Nuggets this season, appearing in eight games with an average of 2.5 minutes.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Cleared for action Wednesday

    Tyson (illness) will play in Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    Tyson will return from a one-game absence due to a non-COVID illness. Considering the Nuggets will be missing only Aaron Gordon on Wednesday, Tyson will likely be a fantasy non-factor.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Iffy for Wednesday

    Tyson (illness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Rockets.

    Tyson is in danger of missing his second straight contest due to a non-COVID illness. However, the rookie forward's potential absence shouldn't impact Denver's rotation.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Inactive Monday

    Tyson (illness) will not play in Monday's game against the Clippers.

    Tyson joins Nikola Jokic (back), Aaron Gordon (heel) and Jamal Murray (hamstring) as key inactives for Denver on Monday. Peyton Watson is available despite also dealing with an illness, while Michael Porter should be busy in the Nuggets' depleted frontcourt.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Dealing with illness

    Tyson is questionable for Monday's game against the Clippers due to an illness.

    Tyson and Peyton Watson both landed on the injury report due to an illness, but the latter is probable while the former is questionable. Tyson's potential absence wouldn't have an impact on Denver's rotation, as he has appeared in just six games this season and has yet to play more than four minutes.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Scores two in loss

    Tyson contributed two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound in four minutes during Wednesday's 110-89 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Tyson hasn't been a consistent part of the Nuggets' rotation this year, as he's appeared in just two of the team's first five games. The rookie second-rounder has averaged just 4.0 minutes per game over his two appearances.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Moves to bench

    Tyson isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's season opener against the Nuggets, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Tyson started in Denver's preseason finale but unsurprisingly will be replaced by Michael Porter in the starting five Wednesday. Tyson is expected to compete for a depth role in the Nuggets' rotation this season.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Gets starting nod

    Tyson will get the starting nod in Thursday's preseason game against the Clippers.

    Tyson has been a standout in the preseason, averaging 10.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 three-pointers. Michael Porter (ankle) is sitting out again Thursday, but it's pretty cool to see the rookie Tyson get an opportunity with the rest of Denver's usual starters.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Joins usual starters in win

    Tyson compiled five points (2-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds and an assist across 21 minutes during Thursday's 103-90 win over the Clippers.

    Although Michael Porter (ankle) will be the starter to begin the season if he's healthy, coach Michael Malone's decision to start Tyson is a strong indication that he will make waves in the second unit. His excellent work during the preseason bolstered him from a potential G League candidate to a lock for the 15-man roster. The Clemson product has a versatile skill set, highlighted by a steady three-point shot. He'll be able to fill many roles with the second unit this season.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Excels again from bench

    Tyson totaled 19 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 27 minutes during Tuesday's 116-103 loss to the Clippers.

    Tyson is one of the team's biggest surprises in the preseason, as the second-round pick out of Clemson was a long shot to make the roster. Instead, he's logged more minutes than most of Denver's starters and keeps pouring in the points. At 6-foot-8, Tyson can be plugged in at either wing position and is an adept deep threat, which was his bread and butter in college. The depth chart for Denver is crowded, but Tyson is making a case for a spot on the 15-man roster.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Impresses off bench in win

    Tyson racked up 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt), five rebounds and a block across 17 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 116-102 preseason win over the Bulls.

    Tyson is vying for a bench spot in the Nuggets' rotation by the time the 2023-24 regular season rolls around, and he was impressive in this one, contributing on both ends of the court and looking efficient on offense. Tyson has scored in double digits in each of his last two preseason outings, though an uptick in his three-point shooting (5-for-19) would boost his case even further.
