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.

Anthony Puccio: D’Angelo Russell was asked if there’s any link to Phoenix due to @DevinBook : “I’m linked to them because of him? S— I didn’t know that. That’s my brother right there. So even if there’s no link to it or w/e we’re still going to be best friends… It’s bigger than basketball.”
“Nobody’s offered me a starting job, so I perfected the one I have.” Lou Will talks about taking on the 6th man role.
But the LA Clippers, who beat the Warriors 129-121 in Game 5 on Wednesday to extend their first-round series, took exception to being overlooked. “For us, our focus was to come in, extend the series and get another win on the home floor,” Clippers star reserve Lou Williams said after the win at Oracle Arena, which pushed the series to Game 6 on Friday in Los Angeles. “It’s their mistake for looking ahead. So that’s on them.”
