  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Provides spark off bench

    Braun logged 11 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 23 minutes during Friday's 121-120 loss to the Spurs.

    Braun was Denver's leading bench scorer during Friday's narrow loss to San Antonio. The second-year forward also tied his season high in blocks with two. While Braun has improved his three-point percentage from 35.4 as a rookie to 38.6 this season, his field-goal percentage has dipped from 49.5 to 46.1.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Rejoins reserves

    Braun will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Braun made a pair of starts in place of Aaron Gordon but will return to the second unit with Gordon available. The Nuggets will have their preferred starting five together for the first time since March 21, meaning Braun will likely be back to his 18-to-22-minute role.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Starting against Atlanta

    Braun is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Hawks.

    Braun will jump into the first unit due to the absence of Aaron Gordon (foot). He's averaging 9.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game in his previous two starts this season.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Heads back to bench

    Braun isn't in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Suns.

    Aaron Gordon will replace Braun in the starting five Wednesday after missing Denver's previous contest with a foot injury. Braun is averaging 8.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 20.2 minutes across his last 10 appearances coming off the bench.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Enters starting lineup

    Braun is starting Monday's game against the Grizzlies, Brendan Vogt of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Braun was announced as the starting small forward after Aaron Gordon (foot) was ruled out for Monday's clash. This marks Braun's second start of the season, with his first dating back to March 2 against the Lakers. He finished with two points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks over 24 minutes in the win.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Valuable bench presence in win

    Braun racked up 17 points (7-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, one block and three steals over 36 minutes during Saturday's 114-111 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Saturday marked Braun's second-best scoring performance of the season as he provided backcourt support with Jamal Murray (ankle) sidelined. While Braun's performance highlights the team's depth, it's unreasonable to expect consistent production from him unless there are backcourt absences.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Perfect from field to lead bench

    Braun ended with 13 points (5-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one block over 17 minutes in Saturday's 142-121 win over Utah.

    Braun led all Nuggets bench players in scoring and threes made while shooting a perfect mark from deep and from the field over 17 minutes until he fouled out of Saturday's contest. Saturday marked the first time this year Braun has finished with a perfect shooting mark when attempting five or more shots, and this was his ninth time with 13 or more points on the campaign.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Steps into starting role

    Braun is in the starting lineup to face the Lakers on Saturday.

    Braun will start at shooting guard due to the absence of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (personal). This will be Braun's first start of the season and seventh of his NBA career. He's averaging 6.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game in 60 appearances off the bench in 2023-24.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Fails to step up

    Braun produced seven points (2-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds and two steals in 22 minutes during Monday's 112-95 loss to the Bucks.

    Braun did not deliver any offensive punch despite Jamal Murray (leg) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (hamstring) being ruled out in the second half. He is averaging 7.0 points and 3.5 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game this season.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Pops for 10 points in loss

    Braun contributed 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds and one steal over 16 minutes during Wednesday's 105-100 loss to Oklahoma City.

    Braun scored double-digits for the first time in more than two weeks, continuing his lean spell of late. He has played fewer than 20 minutes in 10 of the past 11 games, failing to take his performances to the next level. He is now outside the top 300 for the season and can be safely left on waiver wires in all competitive leagues.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Good to go

    Braun (ankle) is available for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    As expected, Braun has been upgraded from probable to available. He's yet to miss a game this season, averaging 5.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals-plus-blocks in 18.8 minutes over his last six appearances.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Probable against Pacers

    Braun is probable for Sunday's game against the Pacers due to a left ankle sprain.

    Braun has yet to miss a game this season, and his ankle issue doesn't look to be serious enough to force an absence. The second-year player is averaging 5.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.2 turnovers in 18.8 minutes across six January appearances.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Scores in double figures

    Braun provided 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, four assists and one steal over 23 minutes during Thursday's 142-105 win over Memphis.

    Braun saw an uptick in playing time during Thursday's blowout victory and contributed in multiple areas. He matched his second-highest assist total of the season while also scoring in double figures for the second time in his last three appearances. The 22-year-old has been an inconsistent contributor this month, averaging 7.9 points and 2.9 rebounds in 18.4 minutes per game in December.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Limited to 11 minutes

    Braun produced six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and one assist over 11 minutes during Monday's 120-114 victory over Golden State.

    Braun had six points in 11 minutes, the fourth time in the past five games that he has scored fewer than seven points. While he has had some encouraging moments thus far, his season as a whole has been disappointing. He is the 261st-ranked player in nine-category leagues, leaving him well off the radar outside of very deep formats.

  • Nuggets' Christian Braun: Scores in double figures again

    Braun provided 10 points (4-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 24 minutes during Thursday's 124-101 victory over Brooklyn.

    Braun has had a limited impact on the scoreboard in recent weeks, but he scored in double figures for a second consecutive matchup Thursday. He also made an impact on the defensive end with a season-high two blocks. Over seven appearances in December, the 22-year-old has averaged 8.3 points and 3.0 rebounds in 18.1 minutes per game.
