Nuggets and Knicks' Standings

Currently, the Denver Nuggets hold the third position in the Western Conference, closely trailing the Minnesota Timberwolves and the OKC Thunder, who are tied for the lead, by just half a game.

On the other side, the New York Knicks, riding a four-game winning streak, are the fifth-ranked team in the Eastern Conference with a 27-17 record. Their aim is to surpass the Cleveland Cavaliers in the standings with a continued winning run.

Injury concerns loom over both teams as they prepare for their matchup. The Nuggets have several players sidelined, including Reggie Jackson, who is deemed 'probable' due to a toe injury. Decisions about his participation will be made closer to game time.

Julian Strawther and Vlatko Cancar, both dealing with knee injuries, are not expected to play, and their return this season remains uncertain. The Knicks have their share of injury woes. Ian Hartenstein is 'questionable' due to an ankle issue, with a final decision pending evaluation.

Mitchell Robinson is out for the season after undergoing ankle surgery. Precious Achiuwa may step up as a starter if Hartenstein is ruled out. This high-stakes game, featuring top teams from opposing conferences, will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York City, with a 7:30 p.m.

Eastern Time tip-off. Television coverage is shared by MSG and Altitude Network, and the game can also be streamed online via NBA League Pass. Radio broadcasts will be available on SiriusXM, EXPN NY 98.7, and Altitude Sports Radio 92.5 FM.
