Where to watch Hawks vs Nuggets game?

If you have an NBA League Pass membership, you can watch the game on the NBA App, and it will also be broadcast nationally on TNT. Let’s take a look at the most recent team news and our Dream11 predictions for the matchup between the Denver Nuggets and the Atlanta Hawks.
Team news and injuries
Markus Howard has been ruled out of the Hawks’ away game after suffering a knee sprain in the previous game. JaMychal Green is out with an ankle injury, so previous absences will continue. Because the severity of his injury is listed as serious, he could be out for an extended period of time. Austin Rivers will also miss time with the team. Since the beginning of December, he has been subjected to the NBA’s health and safety protocols.
Due to an ankle sprain, Bogdan Bogdanovic is expected to miss the game. He has been out since late November. De’Andre Hunter will also remain out. Hunter suffered a wrist injury in November and has been sidelined ever since. He is expected to return to the team late in the month of January. Solomon Hill injured his hamstring earlier this month.
Hawks vs Nuggets preview
The Denver Nuggets have been bitten by the injury bug, threatening their season. Jamal Murray is still recovering from an ACL tear, and Michael Porter Jr. has been ruled out for the remainder of the season. Porter Jr. signed a 5-year extension with the team in the offseason, so the front office planned for the future while willingly sacrificing the current season.
The Atlanta Hawks are not where they expected to be this far into the season. Last year, they advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals, where they defeated the top-seeded Philadelphia 76ers. Nobody could have predicted that they’d be fighting to stay above.500 after a quarter of the season. They’ve been dreadful in fourth quarters and clutch situations. Despite Trae Young’s 41 points, they were defeated by a bottom-tier Houston Rockets team.
Hawks vs Nuggets Head to Head record
The Hawks and the Denver Nuggets have played 94 regular-season games, with the Hawks winning 51 and the Nuggets winning 43. The Nuggets have won three of their last five games against the Hawks.
