More Rumors in this Storyline
Harrison Wind: From Nuggets shootaround: Tyler Lydon (concussion protocol) will be out for tonight’s game against the Heat. Paul Millsap (ankle) is questionable.
Lydon had ditched the yellow sleeve on his left leg by the Nuggets’ second summer league practice, the latest sign that he is ready to get back on the court starting Friday in Las Vegas. “Each day, it gets better and better, and I feel even more and more comfortable with it,” Lydon said. “Mentally, I know my knee’s good. I know it’s 100 percent, so I’m ready to go.”
Lydon has been cleared to play 5-on-5 basketball for about a month. Nuggets assistant Jordi Fernandez, who is coaching this year’s summer league team, has noticed some early tentativeness from Lydon in the form of passed-up shots. Lydon is expected to be in Denver’s starting lineup for Friday’s summer league opener against Minnesota, a setting in which he struggled last year because the style can veer toward a pickup game rather than running a structured system.
