Can the Nuggets afford to rest Jamal Murray?

The Denver Nuggets spent the weekend in Phoenix and came away with two gutsy wins over the Suns. Their reward is a record that is finally two games above .500 at 9-7, possession of fifth-place in the Western Conference standings and a three-game win streak. Nikola Jokic is in MVP-level form, Monte Morris has been absolutely clutch off the bench and Michael Porter Jr. is back with a shot that looks as pure as ever.

Things are looking up in Denver after a shaky start to the year. The back-to-back wins against Phoenix might have been the best of the season - but they might also cost the Nuggets a bit in the short-term.
