Nuggets return home to face Grizzlies

The Denver Nuggets are coming home with a little adversity to deal with, but it could have been worse. Denver is going to be without forward Paul Millsap for a few weeks, guard Gary Harris' recovery from a hip injury is going slower than hoped but Jamal Murray avoided serious injury in Saturday's loss at lowly Atlanta.

Murray left the 106-98 loss after he was inadvertently kicked in the shin but was able to return. Had the injury been more severe, it would have meant the Nuggets would be down four of their starters from opening night.

"I got kicked I think in an awkward spot," Murray told reporters after the game.
