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

Paul Millsap felt better on Monday and had 16 points, nine rebounds, three assists and a steal on 5-of-11 shooting in 32 minutes in a 123-104 loss to the Sixers.

The Nuggets are now 2.0 games out of the playoffs and are going to have a real tough time getting in, especially since the Spurs and Thunder have played well despite their tough schedules. The good news is this means the Nuggets should keep fighting to make it, so hopefully they keep playing the studs until the end finally comes.
Mar 26 - 10:11 PM

Paul Millsap (illness) said he was feeling "two million times better" at Sunday's practice.

Millsap fought through the illness on Friday, but it was clear that he was nowhere near 100%. "Offensively, I couldn’t really see the basket," Millsap said, who finished with just two points on 1-of-4 shooting. "It was a little blurry to me. I was a little dizzy." We're expecting a massive bounce-back performance for Monday's game against the 76ers, make sure you have him active.
Mar 26 - 3:54 PM

Paul Millsap (illness) scored two points with one rebound, five assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

It was fairly obvious he wasn't 100 percent healthy with his hands on his hips at times during this game. Millsap is going to get two full days off before the game on Monday, so he should be over this bug he has now.
Mar 23 - 10:01 PM

Paul Millsap (illness) is in the starting lineup against the Wizards on Friday.

He was a game-time call and he'll be out there against Markieff Morris. The Nuggets need every win they can get and there will be some added pressure on Millsap on both ends, especially with Gary Harris (knee) out. He's obviously a player you need in your season-long league, but there's some risk to play a guy at less than 100 percent.
Mar 23 - 6:25 PM

Paul Millsap (illness) will play on Friday vs. the Wizards.

Coach Mike Malone said he was hopeful that Millsap would play about 15 minutes before this announcement, so even though he wasn't a true game-time call, it sounds like the Nuggets will be watching him closely. He's risky in DFS, but season-long owners should obviously roll the dice on him and he's coming off a monster game.
Mar 23 - 5:53 PM

Coach Mike Malone said he hopes Paul Millsap (illness) can play on Friday against the Wizards.

He's basically a game-time decision, and this is basically a non-update. This is the first game of the day, so we should find out Millsap's status before lock. If he can't go, the Nuggets may opt to go small with Wilson Chandler at the four, but Trey Lyles and Mason Plumlee would likely benefit most.
Mar 23 - 5:38 PM

Paul Millsap (illness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Wizards

If Millsap is unable to play Friday night, Trey Lyles and Mason Plumlee would be the biggest beneficiaries. Darrell Arthur would likely soak up a few additional minutes as well, and it's possible that Kenneth Faried would re-enter the rotation. We can expect an update on Millsap's status later this afternoon.
Mar 23 - 10:59 AM

Paul Millsap made 8-of-9 from the field for 22 points with eight rebounds, three assists, one block, five steals and one 3-pointer in just 27 minutes against the Bulls on Wednesday.

He did most of his damage in the first half with four steals and 12 points. Millsap continues to shoot the ball much better in wins this year, but he's made just 38.8 percent from the field in losses compared to 51.4 percent in wins. He should be good for a little bit of everything as the Nuggets battle for the postseason.
Mar 21 - 11:05 PM

Paul Millsap was held to five points on 2-of-5 shooting vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

He was dominated by Julius Randle tonight and coach Mike Malone subbed him out late in favor of a smaller lineup. Millsap was able to salvage his night with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks, but look for him to bounce back against the Pistons on Thursday.
Mar 14 - 1:22 AM

Paul Millsap scored 21 points with six rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two 3-pointers 30 minutes against the Lakers on Friday.

He has been the quintessential Sapper we all loved in Atlanta two years ago. Since moving back into the starting lineup, Millsap averaged 14.2 points, 6.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.4 steals and 1.2 treys in those five. If you have been stashing for a while, things are looking up in a big way.
Mar 10 - 12:01 AM

Paul Millsap picked up five fouls and played just 20 minutes vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday, finishing with 12 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks.

It's a shame he got into foul trouble because he was well on his way to a big night and his restrictions were just lifted to 28 minutes. Millsap hit 3-of-10 shots and all six of his free throws, but if there's some good news to take from this game it's that he should be fresh for Wednesday's game vs. Cleveland on the second night of a back-to-back.
Mar 6 - 11:18 PM

Paul Millsap's restrictions have been lifted to 28 minutes.

Nuggets coach Michael Malone is keeping his word about Millsap's minutes increasing "quickly." At this rate, he should be over 30 minutes by the end of the week. Millsap has early-round upside the rest of the way.
Mar 6 - 7:15 PM

Nuggets coach Michael Malone said Paul Millsap's workload will "increase quickly very soon."

Millsap has played 23, 27 and 26 minutes in his first three games back since returning, and that includes a back-to-back set. He's averaging 11.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 blocks, 2.0 steals and 1.0 triples in that span, and it won't be long before he's playing 30+ minutes on a nightly basis, just in time for the fantasy playoffs.
Mar 5 - 10:02 AM

Paul Millsap ended up with 11 points, six rebounds, four assists, a steal and a blocked shot over 26 minutes Saturday in Cleveland.

Millsap is back running with the first unit and it appears he is 100 percent after missing just a little over three months due to a wrist injury. While head coach Mike Malone recently said Millsap's conditioning is an issue, it appears he'll get a chance to play his way back into shape. He has played 26 or more minutes in each of the past two outings after being limited in his first game back. He was also able to play in a back-to-back situation, so fantasy owners will be glad to see there was no issue with that. The Nuggs are on track for four games in the upcoming week, so start him as you normally would.
