Paul Millsap scored a season-high 36 points during a thrilling 126-125 win over the Thunder on Friday, adding nine rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.
All those concerns about Millsap not being able to play with Nikola Jokic probably went away. Millsap lived in the paint with almost all of his shots in that range or from deep, and he drew his fouls within 10 feet to help him get to 11 attempts, as well. Coach Mike Malone has talked about using Millsap more as a facilitator, but maybe he just asks him to score more. Either way, Millsap is going to be huge for his fantasy owners. Mar 31 - 1:06 AM

Mike Malone said in a "best case scenario," Gary Harris (right knee) could return for either Monday's game against the 76ers or Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors.

The best case scenario part of this quote implies that Harris may not make it back for next week's back-to-back set, although the Nuggets do have four games next week, so he is worth stashing if you're in a bye week or have an open IR-spot. In the meantime, it'll be Will Barton starting with Jamal Murray, Nikola Jokic and Paul Millsap being asked to do more on offense. For what it's worth, Malone did acknowledge that Harris still hasn't done a lot of running.

Updating a previous report, Gary Harris (right knee) will miss at least the next week of action.

This injury couldn't have come at a worse time in fantasy hoops, so if you're currently battling through the playoffs and your league doesn't offer an IR-spot, you're going to seriously need to consider cutting Harris. Will Barton will be starting in his absence and there will be more shots for guys like Jamal Murray, Nikola Jokic and Paul Millsap. Harris' next opportunity to play will come on March 26 against the 76ers.

Wilson Chandler scored 10 points on 5-of-10 shooting vs. Houston on Sunday, with three rebounds, three assists, three blocks and just one turnover in 32 minutes.

Chandler was coming off a nice performance with 18 points, 16 rebounds and four triples, and he's playing a huge role for the Nuggets as they fight to maintain a playoff berth. The veteran was averaging 37.5 minutes over the past four games and is worth scooping up if he's still available. His playing time will likely take a hit when Paul Millsap (wrist) returns, and he could cede the starting job, but most owners should take a wait-and-see approach.
Feb 26 - 12:09 AM

Trey Lyles played well off Denver's bench on Sunday with 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting, four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

Lyles tied his season-high with the four dimes, which he's done twice before this season, and he continues to give the second unit some scoring punch. The bad news is that Lyles' minutes have dipped to 19.6 over the past five games, and that's unlikely to improve when Paul Millsap (wrist) returns in 1-2 weeks.
Feb 26 - 12:08 AM

Mason Plumlee (calf) said he's available to play vs. the Spurs on Friday.

Plumlee won't have any limitations after resting through the All-Star break. He was ruled 2-4 weeks after getting hurt on Jan. 29, so this is in line with initial expectations. With Nikola Jokic healthy and Paul Millsap (wrist) approaching a return, however, Plumlee is best left on the wire outside of deep leagues.
Feb 21 - 7:33 PM

Trey Lyles had another efficient night on Monday with 21 points on 9-of-15 shooting, five rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

Lyles said his confidence is at an "all-time high," which isn't surprising considering he's averaging 17.4 points on 57.6% shooting over the past month. When coach Mike Malone was asked about Lyles' meticulous pre-game shooting routines, he replied, "The level he’s playing at right now — whatever you’re doing, Trey, keep on doing it." Lyles' fantasy owners must feel the same, as he's cruising with mid-round value in Paul Millsap's absence.

Trey Lyles double-doubled in 27 minutes on Wednesday, scoring 16 points with 11 rebounds.

Lyles went 5-of-11 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line, with two 3-pointers one assist and two turnovers. He's been a terrific addition for those owners who snagged him off the waiver wire, and is coming off December averages of 14.7 points on 54.0% shooting, 2.1 triples, 6.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.4 blocks. He shows no signs of cooling off, and his role is safe until Paul Millsap (wrist) returns, so keep rolling him out there.
Jan 4 - 2:15 AM

Will Barton started for the Nuggets on Monday and hit 9-of-15 shots and five 3-pointers for 25 points, six rebounds and five assists in Monday's 114-98 win over the Kings.

Barton had a four-point dud on Friday, but has been very good for most of the season. He's averaging 15.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.4 3-pointers on 53 percent shooting over his last five games. With Paul Millsap and Wilson Chandler hurting right now, Barton looks like a must-own player.

Kenneth Faried started in place of Paul Millsap (wrist) on Monday, but hit just 1-of-7 shots for six points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block and was pulled after just 19 minutes.

So much for that. It's possible Faried continues to start if Millsap's wrist keeps him out, but after this one, he's going to be very hard to trust. He's only worth a DFS punt at this point, and even that move backfired tonight.
Tue, Nov 21, 2017 12:46:00 AM

Will Barton started the second half of Sunday's game in place of Paul Millsap (wrist), finishing with 12 points, five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

Millsap had X-rays on his wrist and the results haven't been announced, but either way Barton should already be owned. He's quietly racking up mid-round value (8-cat and 9-cat) in under 30 minutes per game, which should be sustainable all season.
Mon, Nov 20, 2017 12:39:00 AM

Trey Lyles took advantage of expanded minutes with Paul Millsap (wrist) leaving early on Sunday, posting 10 points, eight rebounds and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes.

Lyles has scored more than five points just twice this season, but he'd be worth a speculative pickup if Millsap is ruled out for an extended period. To be clear, Millsap is just day-to-day as we await test results, so there's no immediate value to be found here.

Juan Hernangomez chipped in 18 points, four rebounds and two assists during Wednesday's win vs. the Lakers, making 7-of-11 shots with four 3-pointers.

Denver rested four starters tonight with various minor injuries, including Wilson Chandler and Paul Millsap. That allowed guys like Hernangomez and Trey Lyles (12 points in 24 minutes) to step into the starting lineup, but this doesn't have long-term repercussions.
Thu, Oct 5, 2017 12:43:00 AM

Wilson Chandler (sore right hip), Paul Millsap (rest), Nikola Jokic (right elbow sprain) and Gary Harris (right shoulder strain) will not play in Wednesday's preseason game against the Lakers.

Chandler was forced to miss the entire 2015-16 season after undergoing right hip surgery, so the Nuggets are wise to play it safe with him with even the smallest flare-ups during the preseason. This is the first we're hearing about any injuries for Harris and Jokic, but for now, we'll assume their absence from Wednesday's meaningless game is more precautionary than anything else. Chandler should be ready once the regular season begins, and he's worth a late-round pick.

Kenneth Faried said that although he'd like to be a starter for the Nuggets, he's also comfortable coming off the bench.

"I’m a competitor so I’m going to want to fight to be in the [starting] five," Faried said. "We’re going to have good battles at practice if I come off the bench. When I come off the bench I’m going to still play hard and care because at the end of the day it’s about the team." With Paul Millsap in Denver it will be hard for Faried, who is often mentioned in trade rumors, to exceed the 21.2 minutes he averaged last season.
