2021 Fantasy Outlook
Hyland was selected by the Nuggets with the 26th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. The reigning Atlantic 10 Player of the Year had an explosive sophomore season, averaging 19.5 points per game on 45/37/86 shooting splits. His dominant trait is three-point shooting, and he was comfortable shooting pull-ups and step-backs from range as well as being a catch-and-shoot threat. He also has the necessary handles to shake defenders who press up on him to prevent the three-ball, and the guard has the ability to finish near the basket. While he needs to work on tightening his handle and finding open teammates, the upside is clearly there for Hyland to develop into a microwave scorer. He might have a chance to break into the Nuggets' rotation early in the season, especially while Jamal Murray remains out. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Nah'Shon Lee Hyland was born in September 2000 in Wilmington, Delaware. As a child, he was nicknamed "Bones" because of his skinny physique. Hyland attended Delaware's St. Georges Technical High School, where he particularly excelled during his senior year. He averaged 26.6 points, 4.6 assists and 3.4 steals en route to the state tournament's semifinals. Hyland earned first team All-State honors and won Delaware's Player of the Year Award. The four-star high school recruit eventually committed to playing for VCU. Hyland averaged 9.0 points and was a part of the 2020 Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team. The guard became a regular starter during his sophomore year, when he first showed signs of becoming an NBA player. Hyland averaged 19.5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.9 steals en route to becoming Atlantic Player of the Year in 2021. He declared for the 2021 draft after two college seasons. Hyland was selected 26th overall by the Denver Nuggets, becoming VCU's first NBA draftee since Larry Sanders in 2010.

Placed in COVID-19 protocols

December 1, 2021
Hyland won't play Wednesday at Orlando after being placed in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
Hyland and Austin Rivers both entered the health and safety protocols Wednesday, though it's unclear if either or both tested positive for the virus. In any case, both will likely be out for multiple games, leaving an already shorthanded Denver squad even more depleted. Monte Morris and Facundo Campazzo are both likely to see increased roles in the short term, and Markus Howard could move into the backcourt rotation to provide another healthy guard on the second unit.
