NEW YORK (AP) — Jamal Murray is back in the Denver Nuggets' starting lineup at Brooklyn after missing six games with a sprained left ankle.
The guard last played in a victory over Phoenix on Jan. 25, when he rolled his ankle. Before that, he had missed only one game in his three-year career.
Murray is second on the Nuggets with 18.5 points per game.
NEW YORK (AP) — Caris LeVert will practice with the Brooklyn Nets' NBA G League affiliate on Tuesday as he works to return from a dislocated right foot.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Spencer Dinwiddie put on his best Stephen Curry impersonation.
Dinwiddie scored a career-high 39 points off the bench and Allen Crabbe had 20 to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 127-124 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night.
"If I had two 3s in a row, I feel like Steph," Dinwiddie said. "I wasn't about to stop shooting after that. I don't know if I was in a zone, but if I hit two in a row, I'm hot and they know it."
NEW YORK (AP) — Kenny Atkinson and the Brooklyn Nets are feeling a sense of satisfaction. Two wins in 24 hours will do that.
Spencer Dinwiddie scored 25 points and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson added 20 to lead the Nets to a 112-104 win over the New York Knicks on Saturday night.
"My Sunday will be a heck of a lot better," Atkinson said. "We call it a 'Q of L' win. Quality of life win. We feel a little bit better and everything tastes a little better."
DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Pistons are without two potential starters for their season opener Wednesday night against the Brooklyn Nets.
Forward Stanley Johnson is out with a toe issue and guard Reggie Bullock is missing the game because of illness. Rookie guard Bruce Brown is in the starting lineup for the short-handed Pistons.
NEW YORK (AP) — The rebuilding Brooklyn Nets have finally started to click over the season's final month.
Allen Crabbe is hoping it'll carry over to next season.
Crabbe scored 20 of his career-high 41 points in the first quarter and the Nets beat the Chicago Bulls 114-105 on Monday night for their first three-game winning streak this season.
The Nets have won seven of 12 games since March 17 after dropping 18 of 21.
CHICAGO (AP) — Quincy Acy is often an emotional leader for the Brooklyn Nets.
On a record night against the Bulls, he led them on the scoresheet, too.
Acy helped the Nets set a franchise mark with 24 3-pointers in a 124-96 victory over the Chicago Bulls.
The Nets finished one 3-pointer shy of the NBA record set last season by Cleveland. Acy had career highs with six 3-pointers and 21 points, and Allen Crabbe added five from behind the arc and 20 points.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Brooklyn's long-range shooters dealt a blow to the Milwaukee Bucks' hopes of moving up in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
They hit 3s whether they were wide open or had a defender in their face. They hit them from the corners and the wings.
NEW YORK (AP) — The Brooklyn Nets proved supreme in another showdown with one of the NBA's worst teams.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Brooklyn Nets may not have much left to play for this season.
The same can't be said about Allen Crabbe.

CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James scored 31 points and finished a month averaging a triple-double for the first time in his career, and the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Brooklyn Nets 129-123 on Tuesday night.

NEW YORK (AP) — Anthony Davis knows how much the Brooklyn Nets depend on 3-pointers.
The All-Star forward and the New Orleans Pelicans took advantage of Brooklyn's inability to hit them, building a 22-point halftime lead, but they couldn't stop the Nets from hitting 3s over the next two quarters.
But they benefited again from the Nets' long-distance woes in the second overtime to close them out.
DETROIT (AP) — Blake Griffin and the Detroit Pistons are on a roll heading into their matchup with his former team.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — D'Angelo Russell knew that the difference for Brooklyn against Portland's duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum was going to be the defense.
"Honestly, I think we played defense for all 48 minutes," he said. "We had maybe a minute-and-a-half lapse. For 48 minutes, everybody played their part."
Russell had 21 points, including 11 in the fourth quarter, and the Nets snapped a four-game losing streak to the Blazers with a 101-97 victory Friday night. He also had nine assists.
NEW YORK (AP) — The Brooklyn Nets thought their rebuilding phase was right on track when they signed Allen Crabbe to an offer sheet in the summer of 2016, only to see Portland step in and match it.
After finally being able to acquire him in a trade with the Trail Blazers in July, Nets coach Kenny Atkinson is starting to see some of the intangibles that Crabbe's brings.
The gamble, although delayed by a year, might have been worth it.
NEW YORK (AP) — When the Los Angeles Lakers wanted to unload D'Angelo Russell to make way for Lonzo Ball, the Brooklyn Nets pounced.
When Portland and Toronto faced summer salary-cap decisions, the Nets were happy to help.
And by taking on players teams were eager to move, the Nets think they can improve after posting the NBA's worst record last season.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Portland Trail Blazers have traded Allen Crabbe to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for forward Andrew Nicholson.
The deal, first reported by ESPN, comes a year after the Nets offered Crabbe a four-year, $75 million deal as a restricted free agent. The Trail Blazers matched that offer.
A 6-foot-6 wing, Crabbe averaged 10.7 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists last season in Portland. He hit 44.4 percent of his 3-pointers.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — It's clear to Allen Crabbe — and just about everyone else who's watching — that Portland's bench needs to do more against the Warriors.
And Crabbe is pointing to himself as someone who needs to step up.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Trail Blazers reserve guard Allen Crabbe was ruled out of Saturday night's game against the Utah Jazz with left foot soreness

He had 25 points, including a career-high eight three pointers, in a 105-98 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday night.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Allen Crabbe said he just had the feeling that the shots he put up were going to fall.
They did, and nearly all of them were from beyond the arc.
Crabbe had 25 points, including a career-high eight 3-pointers, and the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 105-98 Thursday night to snap a two-game losing streak.
There was a span in the fourth quarter where Crabbe scored 10 points in 48 seconds in route to the comeback win.
ATLANTA (AP) — Portland's dominant first quarter gave the Trail Blazers a big lead over Atlanta they never lost.
Damian Lillard said it was especially encouraging to see the focused Blazers turn back the Hawks' comeback attempt.
Lillard scored 27 points and Portland kept up its playoff push by beating the Hawks 113-97 on Saturday night.
C.J. McCollum had 22 points and Allen Crabbe added 16 for Portland, which raced out to a 17-3 lead that grew to 22 points by the end of the opening period.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Portland countered NBA scoring leader Russell Westbrook's onslaught with strength in numbers.
Seven Trail Blazers scored in double figures, and Portland overcame Westbrook's career-high 58 points to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 126-121 on Tuesday night.
"When you see the stats, Russ got like 60 or whatever," said Portland center Jusuf Nurkic, who scored 17 points. "I give him 80, we still have to win. I respect what he does, but I'm happy for our team."
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Damian Lillard wasn't saying whether he had extra individual motivation down the stretch against the Memphis Grizzlies.
But there was no doubt the Portland guard, passed over for the All-Star Game, was determined.
Lillard scored 33 points, including 13 straight late in the fourth quarter, and the Trail Blazers held off the Grizzlies 112-109 on Friday night.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — That 24-hour travel odyssey hardly took a toll on the Portland Trail Blazers.
C.J. McCollum scored 27 points and the Trail Blazers shook off any fatigue caused by weather-related delays to beat the defending NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers 102-86 on Wednesday night.
Allen Crabbe added 24 points off the bench for the Blazers, who have won four straight home games against the Cavs.
