Aaron Gordon to rest for Nuggets Friday versus Pistons
Denver Nuggets forward Aaron Gordon (rest) will not play Friday against the Detroit Pistons.
Gordon and Facundo Campazzo will be rested on the second leg of the Nuggets' back-to-back, but Nikola Jokic is expected to play. Michael Porter Jr. and Monte Morris are expected to return after sitting out Thursday, and their returns should help offset the absences of Gordon and Campazzo.
Per numberFire's NBA Heat Map, the Nuggets' implied total is 112.8 points on Friday. They run their offense at the third-highest pace out of the 16 teams playing Friday.
