KEY GAME INFORMATION
DENVER: LAST SEASON: 54-28, lost 4-3 to Portland in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Michael Malone (fifth season with Nuggets, 173-155; seventh season overall, 212-222).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jamal Murray (18.2 ppg), G Gary Harris (12.9), F Paul Millsap (12.6), C Nikola Jokic (20.1), G Will Barton (11.5).
KEY LOSSES: G Isaiah Thomas, F Trey Lyles, C Thomas Welsh.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Jerami Grant, C Bol Bol, F Michael Porter Jr.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Porter was the 14th overall pick in 2018 and missed all of last season as he recovered from back surgery. He skipped the Summer League in Las Vegas due to a balky knee. Now, he's healthy and ready to contribute. A healthy Porter gives the Nuggets another dimension on the perimeter, and another piece to add to the core of Murray, Harris, Jokic and Millsap.
OUTLOOK: The Nuggets have improved every season since Malone took over, going from 33 wins his first season to 40, 46 and 54 last season when they earned the No. 2 seed in the West. They didn't make any splashy moves in the offseason although they did bring back Millsap, picking up his $30 million option and agreed on a $170 million extension for Murray. Behind MVP-candidate Jokic, the Nuggets are a legit title contender.
MEMPHIS: LAST SEASON: 33-49, finished tied for 12th in Western Conference.
COACH: Taylor Jenkins (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: F/C Jaren Jackson Jr. (13.8 ppg), G Ja Morant (rookie), C Jonas Valanciunas (15.6), G/F Dillon Brooks (7.5), F Jae Crowder (11.9).
KEY LOSSES: G Mike Conley, G Jevon Carter, G Delon Wright.
KEY ADDITIONS: Morant, G Grayson Allen, F Brandon Clarke, Crowder, G Marko Guduric, F Solomon Hill, G Tyus Jones, G/F Jon Konchar, G De'Anthony Melton, C Miles Plumlee.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Jackson is fully recovered from the bruised right quadriceps muscle that limited his rookie season to 58 games, and the No. 4 pick overall in 2018 has even grown a little bit. Morant played his way into the No. 2 draft pick overall in June, and now the 6-3 guard will get to showcase his speed, passing skills and court vision surrounded by players closer to his talent level than he did in college at Murray State. Valanciunas earned an extension from Memphis and now must prove he can keep producing double-doubles regularly.
OUTLOOK: Marc Gasol and Conley both are gone, and it's up to Jackson and Morant to lead this rebuilding process for Memphis after the Grizzlies revamped the roster as much as possible in one offseason. This season may not be pretty at times, but at least the Grizzlies have hope for the future based on a duo they hope will become big stars. The franchise just may have to wait a couple seasons or more for a return to the postseason.
PREVIEW
Banged-up Nuggets look to extend win streak over Grizzlies
 

The Denver Nuggets, like every NBA team that was in action on Sunday, played through the fog and sadness of the sudden and tragic death of former NBA great Kobe Bryant earlier that day.

Players admitted after their 117-110 win over the Houston Rockets that it was tough to focus on the game after hearing the news not long before tip-off. One thing that got them through was the thought that Bryant's love for the game meant they should play through the pain.

"To be honest, when you think about Kobe it's, 'No excuse. Nothing can put your mind off what you love to do.' It's the Mamba mentality for sure," Denver center Nikola Jokic said.

The Grizzlies had the same mentality in their game against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday. Memphis took a 24-second shot clock violation in honor of one of Bryant's jersey and the Suns took an 8-second violation to honor his other jersey number.

Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. said it was tough to play in the win over the Suns.

"I didn't feel like doing it, to keep it 100 (percent)," Jackson said after the game. "You've got to be a pro. That's what (number) 2-4 stood for and there's no better way to go out there and honor him than to play pro basketball, what you love to do, so that's what we did today. Both teams."

The mourning continues for the basketball world, but the NBA season marches on, and the Nuggets and Grizzlies will face each other in Memphis on Tuesday night. Denver has won the first two meetings between the teams, including a 131-114 rout at the FedEx Forum on Nov. 17.

Their last meeting was Dec. 28 in Denver, which the Nuggets won by nine, but it is a different Grizzlies team a month later. Memphis has won 10 of the 15 games played since then to climb into the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Jackson, the second-year player out of Michigan State, has led the way with 18 points a game but the Grizzlies have gotten production up and down the roster. Five players are averaging in double figures.

Memphis will be without guard Grayson Allen for the foreseeable future. The guard suffered a hip injury in a win over Detroit on Friday and the team recalled Joshua Jackson from the G-League.

Denver has been dealing with injuries all season and is down three of its top rotation players. Power forward Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) will miss his 10th straight game, point guard Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain) will sit for the seventh straight and big man Mason Plumlee (right foot injury) has missed three games.

The Nuggets have gotten some key production from others. Guard Malik Beasley has seen his minutes increase and rookie forward Michael Porter Jr. has stepped up big over the last month despite missing a game last week because of back tightness.

Porter has averaged 15.5 points and 10.3 rebounds in his last four games and has two double-doubles in that stretch.

The Grizzlies will need to stop Jokic, who has stepped up his production with all of the injuries. Jokic notched his ninth triple-double of the season against Houston on Sunday and has 21 double-doubles over the last 27 games.
