Nuggets coach Michael Malone said injured guard Monte Morris is making “great progress” in his return from a right hamstring strain but is still expected to be out the “next couple of games.” Morris, who’s missed the last eight games after injuring his hamstring at Houston on April 16, has posted encouraging updates on his social media channels indicating a return could be close.
