More on Emmanuel Mudiay Injury

Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) practiced Sunday, and is listed as probable for Monday’s game against the Nets. But even though the guard is now healthy enough to make his season debut, it doesn’t mean Fizdale will be ready to put him on the court. “I don’t know how soon I’m gonna do it, but at some point I’m gonna want to take a look at him, and see how he looks,” Fizdale said. “He really helps our pace. I think he’s our best at getting guys the ball where they need it. It’s just a matter of finding the right time to do it.”
Ian Begley: Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) practiced today. His status for Friday is unclear. Courtney Lee (neck) didn’t practice. David Fizdale said he hasn’t made any final decisions about a starting lineup against Golden State.
Mike Vorkunov: Emmanuel Mudiay and Michael Beasley out for the remainder of the game. Mudiay has a headache. Beasley has a left knee contusion.
Nuggets guard Emmanuel Mudiay (right ankle sprain) is expected to return to action on Tuesday against Utah, a source told ESPN's The Undefeated.
Harrison Wind: Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) is out tonight. Part of the reason Monte Morris was recalled from the G League.
Gina Mizell: #Nuggets coach Michael Malone confirms Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) is out tonight against the Thunder. Expect Will Barton to be the primary backup point guard. Having Nikola Jokic helps with facilitating too.
TJ McBride: Mudiay (back), Arthur (knee), Faried (ankle), & Gallinari (groin) are all officially OUT. Chandler (sick) had been upgraded to QUESTIONABLE.
Chris Dempsey: Emmanuel Mudiay (back) is not expected to play either, but is said by #Nuggets coach Michael Malone to be doubtful
Emmanuel Mudiay was ruled out of Monday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks with a sore back, which he aggravated in Saturday’s road loss against the San Antonio Spurs.
TJ McBride: Mudiay, Faried, and Gallinari are all OUT tonight against the Mavericks. Mudiay re-injured his back at SAS. No timetable yet.
Chris Dempsey: #Nuggets G Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) is expected to play tonight vs. Orlando. He missed one game with the sprain.
Nuggets coach Michael Malone says Mudiay won't have his playing time closely monitored, even more so with Nelson sidelined. Mudiay's backup will be Randy Foye, with Will Barton and Danilo Gallinari possibly handling the ball as well.
Nuggets coach Michael Malone said Emmanuel Mudiay’s recovery from a sprained right ankle is taking longer than expected, and that the rookie is another “week-to-10-days” from returning to action. That timetable is news to Mudiay. “For me?” he said. “Listen man…” Mudiay says his ankle is closer to allowing him to play than that, but “I understand they are trying to keep me safe and all of that.” Asked if he’s 10 days away, Mudiay said “I don’t think so. I think it’s going to get better day by day. I should be alright.”

Paolo Banchero will face immense pressure and other related challenges as the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, but the former Duke standout is ready for all of it. Banchero hit the court with his new team for the first time on Sunday as the Orlando Magic prepare for their upcoming stint in the Las Vegas Summer League. He worked extensively with Jamahl Mosley on several drills, and left an impression on the second-year head coach. “The one thing I’ve been observing more is his willingness and understanding of the game,” Mosley said. “Obviously, a fantastic teammate (by) pushing guys and trying to learn the ins and outs of the NBA system. A lot is coming at him and he has done a great job of embracing it. He is not afraid to ask questions and be willing to learn.”
