Paul Millsap    F  Nuggets

 

 

Paul Millsap (wrist) could return in 1-2 weeks, according to coach Mike Malone. Millsap is trending in the right direction and this moves up his return date slightly, compared to the 2-4 week window mentioned on Feb. 21. Even if there's some initial rust when he returns, Millsap is too good to leave floating on your waiver wire.

Torrey Craig    F  Nuggets

 

 

Torrey Craig (hamstring) is out for Sunday night against the Rockets. The Nuggets aren't revealing much here and they have yet to guarantee his deal for the season.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler pulled down a season-high 16 rebounds in Friday's win over the Spurs, adding 18 points, three assists and four triples in 38 minutes. This was his third double-double of the season and his fourth career game with at least 16 rebounds -- his career-high is 17 set back in 2010. He's on fire right now and has played 34+ minutes in four straight contests, averaging 18.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.5 triples in that span. He's worth owning while he's hot, but his minutes could be in jeopardy when Paul Millsap (wrist) returns.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton (illness) played 32 minutes on Friday vs. the Spurs, scoring 15 points on 6-of-10 shots. He's been battling strep throat for the past few days, but the workhorse came through for the Nuggets and for his fantasy owners. Barton added three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one triple, and now he gets a full 48 hours to recover for Sunday's shootout vs. the Rockets.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee (calf) returned to action on Friday vs. the Spurs, posting 12 points with two rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes. He was probably going to play a few more minutes, but foul trouble may have changed that. There could be some matchups where Plumlee starts next to Nikola Jokic, but his window for low-end fantasy value could slam shut when Paul Millsap (wrist) returns in March.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic led the Nuggets to a 122-119 win over the Spurs on Friday, posting his third straight triple-double with 28 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds. The Joker finished 10-of-16 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line, adding three triples in 34 minutes. Jokic and the Nuggets have now won four straight games and are tied with the Blazers for the No. 6 seed out West. "I think there's some people that understand what Nikola's doing, what we're doing but overall I think a lot of people, they don't even understand what's going on right now in Denver," coach Mike Malone said after the game. Led by Jokic, Gary Harris and Jamal Murray, this team is on the rise and they are only going to become more dangerous with Paul Millsap (wrist) due back soon.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton (illness) said he will play Friday vs. the Spurs. Barton has been battling strep throat the past couple days. Thus, he may be limited physically. We should get confirmation on Barton's status from coach Mike Malone prior to tip-off on Friday night.

Torrey Craig    F  Nuggets

 

 

Torrey Craig (left hamstring) will not play against the Spurs on Friday. The Nuggets still have to guarantee his contract and maybe that's part of this whole equation. Either way, Craig won't have much value with the Nuggets fairly healthy on the wings.

Paul Millsap    F  Nuggets

 

 

Paul Millsap (wrist) went through most of practice for the second straight day on Thursday. He's expected to return at some point next month and hopefully it's closer to the first. Millsap has been working on his conditioning for almost a month now, so he may be able to hit the ground running once he's healthy. He should be owned in all fantasy leagues.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton (illness) is dealing with strep throat and is on antibiotics. He is still likely to play on Friday and hopefully he's not contagious anymore. Barton could be limited on Friday and hopefully we get an update on his status at shootaround on Friday morning.
