Emmanuel Mudiay    PG  Nuggets

 

 

Mudiay has been ruled out from returning to Friday's tilt against the Nuggets after spraining his right ankle, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports. Mudiay left the game in the second quarter after playing a little over eight minutes. He provided four points (2-4 FG, 0-2 3PT), two rebounds, and three assists during that time. While the severity of the injury is uncertain at this time, it will keep him sidelined for the remainder of the game. His status for Monday's matchup against the Thunder is currently up in the air. Malik Beasley would be the most likely candidate to benefit from Mudiay missing any time.

Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle sprain) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Pelicans. He left for the locker room right before halftime and was ruled out prior to the second half. With Mudiay out, Jamal Murray will see a bump in minutes and Will Barton could benefit as well as the primary ball-handler for the second unit. Mudiay finished with four points and three assists in eight minutes.

Emmanuel Mudiay left Friday's game vs. the Pelicans after appearing to tweak his ankle. He was seen talking with the trainers on the sideline first before heading back to the locker room. Mudiay will be evaluated at halftime and we should have an official update from the Nuggets soon. If he can't return, Jamal Murray would have to soak up some extra minutes in addition to Will Barton.

Will Barton    SF  Nuggets

 

 

Barton will play a reserve role Friday against the Pelicans, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports. Barton, who has started the previous four games, will come off the bench in favor of two-way player Torrey Craig. The Nuggets are likely just giving Craig an opportunity to impress, but Barton still figures to see a relatively healthy workload off the bench.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Updating a previous report, Nikola Jokic (ankle) is coming off the bench on Friday vs. the Pelicans. He's still fully expected to play, but this will keep his minutes in check. Coach Mike Malone didn't mention a specific number for his restrictions and simply said he'd play a "reasonable amount of minutes."

Torrey Craig    SF  Nuggets

 

 

Craig will get the start at small forward for Saturday's game against the Pelicans, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports. Craig has played in one game this season, and tallied one steal and one rebounds across six minutes in the contest. The Nuggets are likely giving the two-way player an opportunity to show what he has to offer. It remains to be seen how heavy of a workload he will see.

Torrey Craig    F  Nuggets

 

 

Two-way player Torrey Craig is starting at small forward for the Nuggets on Friday vs. the Pelicans. Craig has been lighting up the G-League, but he's only played a total of six minutes for the Nuggets this season. He'll join Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Wilson Chandler and Mason Plumlee in the starting lineup, while Nikola Jokic (ankle) and Will Barton (back) will come off the bench. Juancho Hernangomez is inactive (coach's decision).

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton (lower back contusion) will play on Friday vs. the Pelicans. Barton has been saying all along that he would play, but coach Michael Malone wanted to see him go through warmups first. Regardless if Barton starts or not, he belongs in most fantasy lineups. Jamal Murray and Gary Harris won't see as many touches with Barton back in the mix.

Nikola Jokic    C  Nuggets

 

 

Jokic (ankle) will have an undefined minutes restriction for Friday's game against the Pelicans, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports. The coaching and medical staff will monitor Jokic throughout the game, so his minutes limit will seemingly be determined on the fly. As a result, he makes for a risky DFS option.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nuggets coach Michael Malone confirmed that Nikola Jokic (ankle) will play on Friday vs. the Pelicans. He will be in the starting lineup and will have a minutes restriction, and while Malone wouldn't provide a number, he said he will "play him a reasonable amount of minutes." Fantasy owners in season-long leagues can activate him with confidence and should check back after the game to see how he fares.
