Dozier went undrafted in 2017 and spent some time with other teams before arriving at Denver and earning a spot in the rotation. This past two seasons he’s had an important role in the team and averaged 7.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 21 minutes of playing time.
Nuggets are currently in the 8th seed of the Western Conference with a 9-9 record.
