Paul Millsap    F  Nuggets

 

 

Paul Millsap scored 22 points with 11 rebounds, two assists, five turnovers and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday. There was some very clear rust on Millsap and this offense is nothing like what he ran in Atlanta last year, but he caught fire in the third quarter. Coach Mike Malone dialed up some 4-5 pick and roll with Jokic, so those two look like they'll be playing off each other. What's more, Malone said he wants a good amount of offense to go through Millsap. He's looking like a nice bounce-back player to take in the fourth round of most drafts.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic scored 12 points with six rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday. He said he's lost about 10 pounds this summer, but it was the same old Magic Jokic. He had a quintessential no-look, over-the-shoulder dime in this game and he was in his usual role as the point forward (video of pass in link below). Although, coach Mike Malone has said he'd like to take some pressure of Jokic with Paul Millsap out there, but we'd still view him as a strong first-round pick in standard leagues.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets

 

 

Emmanuel Mudiay parlayed his strong training camp with a great 2017 preseason debut on Saturday, scoring 19 points with two rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes. Coach Mike Malone talked up Mudiay for working extra hard after how he was bumped from the rotation in the second half last year. Malone also said he wants to run a nine-man rotation, so Mudiay is going to have to continue his strong run to fend off Jameer Nelson. He's still not quite on the fantasy map for standard leagues yet, but the offseason buzz looks like it was for real. By the way, he is expected to make a start on Monday.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray scored nine points in a start against the Warriors on Saturday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 20 minutes. He's said he's more explosive and you could see it more on the defensive end. Murray also had a gorgeous step-back trey in this game, which is a big reason why he'll fit in so nicely on this offense (video in link below). After the Murray starting group put up an absurd 122.6 offensive rating after the break last year, he should still be able to fend off a hot Emmanuel Mudiay. On Monday, Murray is likely coming off the bench, but he is still the heavy favorite to start in what could be a breakout season.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Gary Harris scored eight points with two rebounds three assists, one steal and two turnovers in 25 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday. He did take an elbow from JaVale McGee and talked to the training staff, but he returned in the first half and looked totally fine. Perhaps one of the biggest takeaways in this game was how Harris had the ball in his hands more than last year. Sure, it's only one game, but Harris could easily make another leap this year as a fantasy stud.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Wilson Chandler, Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic will start against the Warriors on Saturday. Despite Emmanuel Mudiay being the talk of camp, coach Mike Malone will go with his budding star point guard. Murray was outstanding late last year and he makes so much sense in an offense that is expected to run through Jokic and Millsap. Expect plenty of treys at Oracle tonight.
