Juancho Hernangomez    F  Nuggets

 

 

Hernangomez provided seven points (3-9 FG, 1-6 3Pt), 10 rebounds and one block across 28 minutes in Tuesday's 106-77 loss to the Jazz. Hernangomez drew his first start of the season in place of Wilson Chandler (back) at small forward and was able to generate a team-high number of rebounds in the process. The 22-year-old Spaniard has provided solid scoring and rebounding numbers over the last five games while seeing between 18 and 28 minutes during that stretch, and he serves as a viable grab off the wire for those in deeper formats needing some help in those categories. Hernangomez flashed some upside during his rookie 2016-17 campaign, posting seven double-digit scoring efforts.

Hernangomez will start at small forward for Tuesday's game against the Jazz, Gina Mizell of the Denver Post reports. With Wilson Chandler sitting out with a back injury, Hernangomez gets the call with the top unit, marking his first start of the season. Hernangomez has averaged just 12.0 minutes per game, but should see a sizable increase in his workload with the promotion. Still, Will Barton is likely to take on a chunk of Chandler's minutes as well and has more upside between the two, so that'll make Hernangomez nothing more than a punt-play option for Tuesday's DFS slate. Either way, Hernangomez should see a temporary uptick in his fantasy value.

Hernangomez (illness) will be available for Saturday's game against the Magic. Hernangomez has been battling mono since the first week of the season. He's apparently well enough to be available if needed Saturday, however.

Hernangomez (illness) has been upgraded to questionable for Saturday's game against Orlando, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. Hernangomez has been battling mono since the first week of the season and has missed the last 10 contests, but his condition has apparently improved and he'll have a chance to return to action Saturday night. If that is, ultimately, the case, his role would likely be limited considering the layoff, as well as the fact that he played only 13 combined minutes in the two games for which he's been active this season.
