INJURY TO WATCH
Kings center Willie Cauley-Stein (back) and point guard De'Aaron Fox (back) are both questionable for today's game. Iman Shumpert (foot) is out indefinitely. For the Nuggets, Wilson Chandler (hip) is probable to play after missing the last game.
If the Kings are without both Cauley-Stein and Fox, it's hard to see them hanging around here. It would sap them of a couple of their most athletic players against a team that is very efficient on offense and plays at a fast pace. The Nuggets lead the season series 2-1 as it won the first two meetings by 16 and 17 points, while Sacramento rebounded for a 106-98 home win on Jan. 6. Denver has been up-and-down recently, but looked as comfortable as it has since the return of Paul Millsap from injury as it downed the Lakers 125-116 at home last game. The Kings have lost seven of their last 10 games and three of the last four losses have been by 13 or more points. In the high altitude of Denver, I like the hosts to get a win over short-handed Sacramento.
