From Bones Hyland’s Instagram story after he was originally placed in the league’s health and safety protocols. He’s not listed on the latest injury report, but it’s unclear whether he will be available tonight. PM

Nuggets’ Rivers, Hyland both out Wednesday after entering health, safety protocols…11:23 AM
Michael Singer @msinger
Bones Hyland is also in the health and safety protocol and is expected to miss several games as well, I’m told. He’s not at #Nuggets shootaround.
Hyland and Rivers are the only players expected to be in the protocol. – 10:42 AM
Katy Winge @katywinge
The Nuggets will be without both Austin Rivers and Bones Hyland for tonight’s game vs Orlando. Both have entered health and safety protocols. – 10:31 AM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
With no Dozier, Murray, Porter or Rivers (and possibly JaMychal Green) going forward on this road trip, look for Bones Hyland, Facu Campazzo, Vlatko Cancar, and Zeke Nnaji to continue to soak up most bench minutes. – 9:59 AM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Dozier, Murray and Porter are all out.
JaMychal Green (left elbow sprain) is questionable.
Bones and Jokic are both off the injury report. PM

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Bones Hyland on what he said to Markieff Morris after this made 3 in front of Miami’s bench: “You know that, Kieff,” his relationship with the Morris brothers that goes back years, and Jokic’s reaction to his technical.
“I’m an emotional player. I’m not going to stop who I am.” PM

One of the biggest fantasy add nights for deep leagues in a while, so posted today’s NBA 3 Ball a little early. Bones Hyland and RJ Hampton headline the widely-available adds with lots of Rockets and Thunder. Plus, a lot more!
Check it out!…11:58 PM
Katy Winge @katywinge
Me: “I saw Coach Malone hug you when you came out of the game. What did he say?”
Bones (with a smile): “He said we missed you kid.” ⬇️
A new career high for @BizzyBones11 tonight, his first time in Miami. PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Bones Hyland says he picked up his technical after yelling, “You know that, Kieff!” to Markieff Morris on the Heat sideline after his made 3 in front of Miami’s bench. But it was friendly. Bones and Morris go back years and the two are close friends. – 10:14 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Bones: “The Fro Bros.”
Me: “Did you just come up with that?
Bones: “Nah, saw it on Twitter.” – 10:10 PM

Nuggets beat the Heat with Jimmy Butler by 17 three weeks ago. Denver beats Miami without Butler by nine tonight. And it wasn’t that close. Bones Hyland gets a career-high 19 pts and shoots 5-8 from 3. Nikola Jokic goes for 24, 15 and 7. Denver ends its six-game losing streak. – 9:51 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
What a pass from Nikola Jokic. Lofted it right over the defense. Hit Bones Hyland in the numbers. PM

Bones just got T’d up. He definitely turned toward Miami’s bench and had a little fun at their expense.

Nikola Jokic is going NUCLEAR
He has 17 points, 9 rebounds and two assists on 7-8 shooting.

If you’re Coach Malone, what do you say to the team? – 8:38 PM
Katy Winge @katywinge
Coach Malone just high-fived Bones Hyland as he came out of the game and said “I’m proud of you.”
First game back for Bones and he’s got 13 points on 4-5 shooting in the first half. – 8:29 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Bones is firing away, but he’s also been quick to get off the ball when there isn’t an advantage. He is so good at the things that don’t show up on the box score. Even that last closeout to the corner was fantastic. – 8:23 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
I missed Bones a lot too. – 8:20 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Bones Hyland my god. What a boost having his shooting back off the bench. – 8:20 PM

Murray, Porter, and Dozier are out for Monday’s game against the Miami Heat, tho Denver’s calling it an ACL sprain and not a tear which confuses me.
Jokić and Bones are questionable. PM

TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Dozier, Murray and Porter are all OUT, as expected.
Hyland and Jokic are both QUESTIONABLE.
Bones was doubtful prior to taking on the Bucks so that is improvement. PM
