Jazz, Nuggets in high-profile clash despite injuries

Utah and Denver have two of the best young guards in the NBA, a pair that put on a dazzling show in a first-round playoff series in the Orlando bubble last summer.

There will be no repeat of that when the Jazz host the Nuggets on Friday night in the last of three-game season series between the two.

Utah's Donovan Mitchell has missed the last 10 games with a right ankle sprain and could miss his 11th while Jamal Murray is out for the season and beyond with a torn ACL in his left knee. What's more, the teams' second-best guards are ailing, too.
