Nuggets: Ken­neth Faried (neck) did not prac­tice Tues­day be­cause of con­tin­ued sore­ness stem­ming from the in­jury he suf­fered Satur­day night at Golden State. How­ever, he is ex­pected to play, said Nuggets coach Michael Malone, who added: “I’d be sur­prised if he doesn’t play. Then again, in that kind of a sit­u­a­tion with your neck, your ver­te­brae, you don’t want to take any chances.” … Cen­ter Jusuf Nur­kic, who had been on a 15-minute limit, will see an in­crease in court time against Min­nesota, Malone said. Ex­pect that num­ber to be in the 20-minute range.

Timberwolves: Other than the on­go­ing ab­sence of cen­ter Nikola Pekovic, who has missed the en­tire sea­son be­cause of Achilles ten­don re­hab, Min­nesota is re­port­ing no other sig­nif­i­cant in­juries, and all other play­ers are avail­able to play. … The Timberwolves are 4-15 since start­ing the sea­son 8-8 and have lost 11 of their last 14 games, in­clud­ing a cur­rent three-game skid.
