The Nuggets may only be one game into their 82-game schedule, but this weekend's games are still fairly important.

While it wouldn't be the end of their season if they dropped their first three matchups, that is certainly not something the team is looking to do.

Not to mention, after their back-to-back games in Orlando and Miami, they'll still have to play 15 of their following 21 games away from the Pepsi Center.

Starting out 0-3 on the road won't help their confidence heading into that stretch of away games.

That means that winning one or both of the next two contests is more important than you may think.

Tonight, the Nuggets will play their former teammate Arron Afflalo in Orlando, while tomorrow they'll travel to Miami to take on the star-studded NBA champion Heat.

Here are the five players who must step up for Denver to pull out a pair of wins.
