DENVER: LAST SEASON: 54-28, lost 4-3 to Portland in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Michael Malone (fifth season with Nuggets, 173-155; seventh season overall, 212-222).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jamal Murray (18.2 ppg), G Gary Harris (12.9), F Paul Millsap (12.6), C Nikola Jokic (20.1), G Will Barton (11.5).
KEY LOSSES: G Isaiah Thomas, F Trey Lyles, C Thomas Welsh.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Jerami Grant, C Bol Bol, F Michael Porter Jr.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Porter was the 14th overall pick in 2018 and missed all of last season as he recovered from back surgery. He skipped the Summer League in Las Vegas due to a balky knee. Now, he's healthy and ready to contribute. A healthy Porter gives the Nuggets another dimension on the perimeter, and another piece to add to the core of Murray, Harris, Jokic and Millsap.
OUTLOOK: The Nuggets have improved every season since Malone took over, going from 33 wins his first season to 40, 46 and 54 last season when they earned the No. 2 seed in the West. They didn't make any splashy moves in the offseason although they did bring back Millsap, picking up his $30 million option and agreed on a $170 million extension for Murray. Behind MVP-candidate Jokic, the Nuggets are a legit title contender.
NEW ORLEANS: LAST SEASON: 33-49, finished tied for 12th in Western Conference.
COACH: Alvin Gentry (fifth season with Pelicans, 145-183; 17th season overall, 480-553).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Lonzo Ball (9.9 ppg), G Jrue Holiday (21.2), F Brandon Ingram (18.3), F Zion Williamson (rookie), C Derrick Favors (11.8).
KEY LOSSES: F Anthony Davis, F Julius Randle, G Elfrid Payton.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Williamson, F Ingram, G Ball, C Favors, G J.J. Redick, G Nickeil Alexander-Walker, C Jaxson Hayes.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Williamson was the No. 1 overall pick in last summer's NBA draft, was a highlight machine at Duke and has looked fearless in his first NBA preseason ' taking the ball to the hoop against the best interior defenders in the league and scoring more than 20 points in multiple games. The 6-foot-6, 285-pound rookie is a social media phenomenon and filling arenas everywhere he goes. But the additions of Ball and Redick will be important to New Orleans as well.
OUTLOOK: Of the Pelicans' four new starters brought in by Griffin, one was picked No. 1 overall this summer and two Ingram and Ball were picked second overall within the previous three years by the Lakers before being packaged with Josh Hart and draft picks in a trade sending Davis to Los Angeles. Combined with savvy veterans like Holiday and Favors, not to mention Redick off the bench, there are high hopes in New Orleans that the Pelicans are trending upward and might even contend for a playoff spot this season. The Pelicans also expect 2019 first-round picks Alexander-Walker and Hayes to contribute this season.
Zion, Pelicans ready for Nuggets

The New Orleans Pelicans did just fine without Zion Williamson against the Denver Nuggets.

Now the Pelicans will try to complete a sweep of the season series with the No. 1 overall draft choice in the lineup when they face the visiting Nuggets on Friday night.

The Pelicans got their first victory of the season when they beat the Nuggets 122-107 on Halloween, then beat them 112-100 on Christmas in Denver.

The third and final meeting won't take place on a holiday, but it will take place just two days after New Orleans celebrated Williamson's long-awaited NBA debut despite a 121-117 home defeat against San Antonio.

After missing the season's first 44 games because of arthroscopic knee surgery, Williamson started and scored 22 points, including 17 straight New Orleans points midway through the fourth quarter.

"It was good to get back out there, obviously, but I didn't have the outcome that I wanted," Williamson said, who played 21 minutes.

He helped the Pelicans briefly gain a one-point lead before the Spurs went back on top, and he went to the bench with 5:33 remaining. He didn't return on the advice of the team's medical staff, which didn't want to push him beyond the 18-plus minutes he already had played.

"I'm 19 and in that moment I'm not thinking about longevity," Williamson said. "I'm thinking about winning that game so it was very tough."

Williamson made eight of 11 field goals, including all four of his 3-pointers. He added seven rebounds, three assists and five turnovers.

"For him to be able to come out here and do that in his first game is pretty elite," Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday said.

Williamson struggled for the first three quarters before taking over the game by scoring 17 points in a stretch of three minutes and eight seconds.

"I think the big thing is that he was much more aggressive during that situation," Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. "I thought he was just deferring way too much. I wanted him to be aggressive, and I knew that he would make some mistakes, but I think what you saw there is a taste of once we really get settled in and he gets settled in, you can see that there's a lot of things we can do with him."

Gentry said after practice Thursday that Williamson experienced no ill effects from putting his knee through an NBA game for the first time.

New Orleans has endured a series of injuries in addition to Williamson's and the Nuggets are dealing with a few injuries as well.

Denver was missing five players, including three starters, in a 121-105 loss at Houston on Wednesday.

Guard Jamal Murray (ankle) missed his fourth straight game. Forward Paul Millsap (knee) missed his ninth consecutive game. Guard Gary Harris (adductor) missed his sixth consecutive game. Forward Michael Porter Jr. (back tightness) and center Mason Plumlee (foot) were also sidelined.

"We missed bodies, but that's not an excuse," said center Nikola Jokic, who had his eighth triple-double of the season with 19 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. "We need to do a better job of rebounding. I need to do a better job of throwing the ball around, not having turnovers, just to lead the team a little bit better."

The Nuggets were outrebounded 53-40 and gave up 18 offensive rebounds.

"To me, that's the one area, I don't care who's available, that has nothing to do with talent," Denver coach Michael Malone said. "The guys that are shooting up and being called upon to play can go out there and rebound the basketball."
