Nuggets season in review: Markus Howard

After playing 37 games in his rookie season, Markus Howard played just 31 games this year due to a number of factors. First, the addition of Austin Rivers and draft selection of Bones Hyland made things difficult for him to get on the court initially. Second, he was just starting to get into a rhythm and make some plays until he got hurt on December 15th against the Minnesota Timberwolves, suffering an MCL sprain and a nearly ugly knee injury. When he returned on January 13th in a brief appearance, it was only six days before the Nuggets acquired Bryn Forbes in a trade with the attention of playing the veteran significant bench minutes.

Nuggets' Markus Howard: Drops 25 in finale

Howard provided 25 points (8-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 24 minutes during Sunday's 146-141 overtime loss to the Lakers. Howard had plenty of explosive scoring games during his days at Marquette, but he's struggled to find a consistent rotation spot with the Nuggets. He carved out a larger role last season after Jamal Murray went down, but Howard has played double-digit minutes only six times in 2021-22.

Nuggets' Markus Howard: Hot from deep

Howard racked up nine points (3-4 FG, 3-3 3Pt) and one steal in three minutes during Sunday's 136-100 win over Milwaukee. Howard continued the scoring barrage with the Nuggets dominating throughout the fourth quarter. The Marquette product is a microwave three-point shooter and has boomed on occasion at the NBA level. That being said, he should still be regarded as merely a fourth-string point guard.

Howard (illness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Pistons, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. Howard missed the first matchup with Detroit on Sunday due to a non-COVID illness, but he has a chance to return for the rematch Tuesday.

Nuggets' Markus Howard: Recalled from G League

Howard rejoined the Nuggets for practice Tuesday after he was recalled from the G League's Grand Rapids Gold, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. Howard has made 17 appearances for the Nuggets this season and is averaging 4.2 points across 6.9 minutes during those games. Other than Jamal Murray (knee), the Nuggets' backcourt is starting to look full again as Austin Rivers (illness) is practicing and expected to return to action soon, so barring a blowout, Howard is unlikely to crack the rotation.

Nuggets' Markus Howard: Struggles from deep

Howard (knee) recorded 14 points (4-14 FG, 3-11 3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes during Sunday's 115-111 defeat to the Blue Coats. The two-way player was recently assigned to the Gold, but Howard had a rough outing during Sunday's loss. The Marquette product shot an abysmal 27 percent from three on his 11 attempts and failed to record any steals or blocks. Howard has proved that he is a more than capable scorer throughout his short time in the league, so this appearance does seem like an outlier for the 22-year-old shot-creator.
