Nuggets News

Tyler Lydon    SF  Nuggets



Lydon was assigned to the G-League on Sunday, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. Lydon has seen action in just one game for the Nuggets this season, logging a total of two minutes. For that reason, he'll be reassigned to the G-League, where he'll have the chance to see extended minutes and work on his overall development. That said, even when Lydon is recalled, he'll remain off the fantasy radar.

Tyler Lydon    F  Nuggets



Tyler Lydon has been sent down for a G-League stint. Even with injuries to Paul Millsap (wrist) and Nikola Jokic (ankle), Lydon has not been able to get into the rotation, so he'll go down to the G-League for some minutes.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets



Nikola Jokic (left ankle) will not play Monday vs. the Mavericks, as expected. Jokic will be out at least another two games, but the Nuggets are hopeful that they'll be able to get him back towards the middle or end of their upcoming six-game road trip. Mason Plumlee got the start in his place on Saturday and finished with 12 points, six boards and six dimes in 31 minutes, so he could be worth a look in deep leagues. Jamal Murray and Gary Harris will do the heavy lifting on offense.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets



Wilson Chandler (back) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Mavericks. Chandler has spent the past three games on the sidelines, which has allowed Juan Hernangomez to move into the starting five and Will Barton has seen some increased opportunity with the second unit. It'll be more of the same if Chandler can't give it a go tomorrow, and we should get another update following Monday morning's shootaround.

Nikola Jokic    C  Nuggets



Jokic (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Monday's game against the Mavericks, Gina Mizell of the Denver Post reports. Jokic had to sit out Saturday's game with an ankle injury and will now miss his second consecutive contest. He's currently traveling with the team on their current six-game road trip and originally stated he hoped to play near the middle of the trip, so Friday's tilt with the Magic seems like a realistic possibility for a return. Either way, Jokic will continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis despite likely missing the next few games at least. Mason Plumlee should pick up another start after posting 12 points, six rebounds and six assists across 31 minutes Saturday.

Wilson Chandler    SF  Nuggets



Chandler (back) is listed as questionable for Monday's matchup with the Mavericks, Gina Mizell of the Denver Post reports. Chandler has missed the last three games with lingering soreness in his back, but will be shooting for a return on Monday. Look for him to test it out during morning shootaround, and potentially pregame warmups, before a final word on his availability is provided. Juancho Hernangomez has started the last three games in Chandler's place and would likely do so again if Chandler can't give it a go.

Mason Plumlee    PF  Nuggets



Plumlee contributed 12 points (8-20 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six rebounds and six assists across 30 minutes Saturday in Denver's win over Los Angeles. Plumlee filled the void left by injured star Nikola Jokic (ankle) on Saturday and will continue doing so as the Nuggets move forward without Jokic for the foreseeable future. The Nuggets like to run their offense through the high post. With both Jokic and forward Paul Millsap (wrist) out, Plumlee collected six assists, putting his skills on full display. He is a useful fantasy asset for as long as the opportunity for playing time lasts. Plumlee topped 20 minutes of play for only the fifth time this season and should continue to run with the starters until Jokic returns.

Jamal Murray    SG  Nuggets



Murray poured in 28 points (8-20 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), collected four rebounds, four assists, and two steals in 33 minutes Saturday in Denver's win over Los Angeles. Murray led the Nuggets in scoring Saturday with 28 points. His scoring got a considerable boost from his three-point shooting, connecting on five of eight attempts. Compare that to the last eight games, where Murray connected on only 14-percent of his three-point attempts. Consistency is the key to his fantasy value going forward. With star big man Nikola Jokic (ankle) out for the foreseeable future, Murray will be asked to shoulder the offensive load.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets



Jamal Murray filled it up during a 115-100 win over the Lakers on Saturday, scoring a game-high 28 points with four rebounds, four assists, two steals and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes. After he flopped against the Lakers on Nov. 19, Murray was pumped up on both sides of the ball. He's been maddeningly inconsistent this season, but now he should be looking at added usage and play-making chances with Nikola Jokic (ankle) on the shelf. If you look at his per-36 minute numbers in the 176 minutes without Jokic this season, you're looking at 21.2 points, 4.5 boards, 2.7 dimes, 1.0 steals and 2.0 treys. The Blue Arrow could use this added opportunity ahead to carry him the rest of the way, so his arrow should be pointing up.

Juan Hernangomez    F  Nuggets



Juancho Hernangomez scored five points with five rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday. The Nuggets love him as a 3-and-D guy, but Hernangomez just doesn't get the usage. He is a good bet to start and that may even be the case when Wilson Chandler (back) can return, but there's really not enough upside to add him.
