Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets

 

 

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Nuggets will likely waive Jameer Nelson. They need the roster spot to sign Richard Jefferson, and this suggests that the Nuggets are confident in Jamal Murray as their starting PG and Emmanuel Mudiay as his backup. Once waived, the 35-year-old Nelson shouldn't have much trouble finding work and will probably be looking to join a contender.

Richard Jefferson is "closing in" on a one-year, $2.3M deal with the Denver Nuggets according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. He cleared waivers less than an hour before this report, so the Nuggets aren't wasting any time. It's hard to imagine Jefferson playing a big role with the Nuggets expected to use a nine-man rotation, so he's not on the fantasy radar.

Richard Jefferson is "closing in" on a one-year, $2.3M deal with the Denver Nuggets according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The move will be official once the Nuggets waive a player (likely Jameer Nelson). Jefferson cleared waivers less than an hour before this report, so the Nuggets aren't wasting any time. It's hard to imagine Jefferson playing a big role with the Nuggets expected to use a nine-man rotation, so he's not on the fantasy radar.

Richard Jefferson has officially cleared waivers, and he's now an unrestricted free agent. Jefferson will be free to join a team of his choosing, and both the Bucks and Nuggets have expressed interest in the 37-year-old swingman. However, the Bucks added DeAndre Liggins on Monday, bringing their roster to 15, so they appear to be out of the running. Will Barton suffered what may have been a significant ankle injury during Monday's practice, so Jefferson could help them out with some backcourt depth during Barton's absence, but he won't have any fantasy value there.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets

 

 

Mike Malone confirmed that Jameer Nelson will not be a starter for the Nuggets this season. Malone wouldn't reveal who will open the year as Denver's starting point guard, but all signs are pointing towards Jamal Murray earning the starting nod over Emmanuel Mudiay. Nelson will be taking on more of a mentorship role this season, so he can be ignored in fantasy hoops.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton suffered an apparent right ankle injury during Monday's practice, and he should be considered doubtful for Wednesday's season opener against Utah. Barton was in considerable pain after suffering the injury and needed to be helped off the court, as he wasn't able to put much pressure at all on his injured appendage. Mike Malone speculated that it was an ankle injury, but we'll wait for an official diagnosis from Denver's medical staff. Barton dealt with a lot of left ankle issues in the past, so unfortunately, this injury would be to his good ankle. If he's forced to miss time, that could open up some minutes for Juan Hernangomez.

Tyler Lydon    F  Nuggets

 

 

Tyler Lydon appeared in all five preseason games for the Jazz, but averaged just 1.0 points and 1.0 rebounds in 5.3 minutes. Lydon will not be a part of the rotation for Utah during the regular season and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
