Denver Nuggets guard/forward Christian Braun hopes to get healthy over the All-Star break, which would then allow him to produce better performances. The 22-year-old was expected to make a big step up in 2023-24, but he hasn't gained any momentum due to health issues holding him back. While averaging 19.0 minutes off the bench, Braun has put up 7.0 points with 3.5 rebounds. "I don't want to sit here and make any excuses, but it hasn't been great," Braun told Sean Keeler of The Denver Post. "(It's been) one thing after another. But I feel all right I think this break for me, personally, will be great for my body. I think that's the biggest thing for me right now, is getting my body back. (It) hasn't felt great all year."
Denver Nuggets guard/forward Christian Braun could see himself with a bigger role on the team next season. It sounds like the organization believes Braun could be a critical piece to this rotation. The team praised his defensive toughness and fundamentals during the postseason. The 22-year-old is expected to have more minutes coming his way with the departure of Bruce Brown. Last season, Braun averaged 4.7 points, 2.4 rebounds, 0.8 assists in 15.5 minutes per game across 76 games with the Nuggets. He won't be someone that will fly off draft boards in fantasy leagues. However, Braun is someone worth keeping an eye on as the season begins.
Denver Nuggets guard/forward Christian Braun made an outstanding contribution off the bench in Wednesday's Game 3 victory over Miami, posting 15 points on 7-for-8 shooting and picking up four rebounds, one assist and one steal in just 19 minutes of action. Braun also provided the Nuggets with a great spark off the bench in Game 2, coming up with three steals and showing off good finishing ability around the rim. His minutes have been steadily climbing in the series, and Braun could play an even bigger role in Friday's Game 4 as the Nuggets look to grab a 3-1 series lead.
Denver Nuggets rookie forward Christian Braun put up some solid stats in the team's Summer League game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday. He grabbed a game-high 12 boards, including five offensive rebounds, while also adding eight points, five assists, three blocks and one steal. Braun has had some trouble shooting the ball so far this summer and those struggles continued in Wednesday's game as he went 1-for-10 from the field and 0-for-5 from three-point range. The 21-year-old was selected 21st overall in this year's draft. He likely won't be a regular part of the team's rotation as a rookie this year.
