Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic scored 16 points with five rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes during a 109-105 loss to the Rockets on Saturday. Yuck. He picked up two fouls in the first quarter and never really could get it going after that. Jokic is obviously fine and two of these fouls were on the offensive end, so it's not like it was on bad shooting fouls -- that tends to be his undoing in bad games. Expect Jokic to be a top-10 player the rest of the way.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Gary Harris scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday. He had one of the toughest jobs in the NBA tonight, guarding James Harden for most of his minutes tonight. Harris is being a bigger part of the offense now with an increase in usage while he's also running the offense more. He continues to be an early-round player since the break, so keep him rolling with four games next week.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jameer Nelson scored 15 points with seven rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday. It looked like Nelson's playing time was going to drop, but that's two really strong games with a 16-point, five-dime game on Thursday. Nelson still wasn't doing much before this weekend and Jamal Murray won't be going away, so the limited upside makes him more of a player to stream. Nelson does have four games this week, so maybe he is worth a look for you. Plus, he also slightly benefits from Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Wilson Chandler (groin) not playing.

Kenneth Faried    F  Nuggets

 

 

Kenneth Faried scored 11 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday. He's playing well and is back to seeing minutes at mostly power forward. In his last two games, he's played 15 minutes next to Nikola Jokic, 22 minutes next to Mason Plumlee and four minutes as the lone big man. Faried's upside still isn't that high with Mason Plumlee being successful and Wilson Chandler (groin) returning would hurt him even more, so he's not the best pickup.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray scored 12 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday. He had three really bad fouls early in this game and never really good going. Coach Mike Malone has said he wants to give Murray to help develop him faster while also trusting him in clutch spots. That was the case in this game for Murray with plenty of important shots, but he did not come through -- he missed two big free throws late. Murray's usage and minutes are rising, so that makes him a pickup in competitive leagues while Danilo Gallinari (knee) is out.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton made 2-of-13 from the field for 10 points with one rebound, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday. Live by the Thrill, die by the Thrill. He was coming off a career-high 35 points and just couldn't hit open shots with a 1-of-9 shooting line from deep. Barton will be playing big minutes while Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Wilson Chandler (groin) are out, so he should be worth owning in standard leagues until we get a timeline on those two.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee scored nine points with nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks in 32 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday. While the offense wasn't great in big minutes for him, you could call this a win for Plumlee's minutes going forward. Before the game, coach Mike Malone stressed covering the 3-point line and the Nuggets actually held them to a season low in treys. The fact that Malone can still go big and cover the 3-point line will be huge in certain spots for the former Blazer. While Plumlee did benefit a ton from Nikola Jokic being in foul trouble, he looks like he's earned a handful of minutes at PF. He's a hold.

Juan Hernangomez    F  Nuggets

 

 

Juancho Hernangomez scored 15 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes as the starting small forward against the Rockets on Saturday. The Nuggets look like they hit on another international guy. Hernangomez has made a very impressive 45.9 percent from deep this season. Before tonight, a whopping 71 of his 73 attempts were catch-and-shoot attempts, so having Nikola Jokic is helping. With Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari out, Hernangomez is a decent guy to hold until those two get the all clear.
