Nuggets News

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton (foot) didn't play vs. the Thunder on Sunday. Barton was expected to "give it a go," according to coach Mike Malone, but he wound up riding the bench all night. Owners should consider him questionable to return on Tuesday. If he can't suit up, expect Jamal Murray and Gary Harris to gain the most in his absence.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets

 

 

Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) came off the bench on Sunday for 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes of action. Mudiay may not have been 100 percent healthy but he didn't appear to be limited, and continues to show improved shot selection. He made 7-of-10 shots tonight, without any free throw attempts, and should see steady playing time in Denver's final two games. Jameer Nelson (calf) was wearing a walking boot on Sunday and is likely done for the season.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler logged a game-high 42 minutes during Sunday's home loss vs. the Thunder, scoring 17 points and grabbing 10 rebounds with two assists and one block. Kenneth Faried (back) was out tonight, which helped inflate Chandler's playing time. He made the most of his offensive chances, going 6-of-11 from the field with a 5-of-10 mark from downtown, and he committed just one turnover. The biggest threat to his value over the final two games is that Denver can't make the playoffs, which could inspire coach Mike Malone to unleash his young guys.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

Danilo Gallinari blew up for a season-high 34 points vs. OKC on Sunday, making 12-of-20 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with four 3-pointers, 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals. Gallo is likely to opt for unrestricted free agency this summer, so this might have been his final home game with the Nuggets. If so, he went out with some fireworks, scoring 22 points in the third quarter alone. Unfortunately for Denver, they blew a late lead to lose at home 106-105, officially eliminating them from the playoffs.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Gary Harris had a forgettable performance on Sunday, going 1-of-8 from the field to score two points with five assists and one turnover in 36 minutes. Harris went 0-of-3 from downtown and he didn't have a single rebound or defensive stat, making this a dreadful game for fantasy owners still fighting for a championship. Harris came in red-hot, having made 25-of-40 shots in his previous three games (62.5 percent), and he should fare much better vs. Dallas on Tuesday.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jameer Nelson (calf) was spotted sporting a walking boot on Sunday. While Nelson hasn't officially been ruled out for the rest of the regular season just yet, things aren't looking great for him with just two games left on the schedule. For now, we'll consider him doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, and if he's out again, it'll be Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay picking up the slack.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jameer Nelson (calf) was spotted sporting a walking boot on Sunday. While Nelson hasn't officially been ruled out for the rest of the regular season just yet, things aren't looking great for him with just two games left on the schedule. Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay will continue to man the point guard spot in his absence, with Murray offering the most upside.

Wilson Chandler    F  Nuggets

 

 

Chandler will start at power forward for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler will return to the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Thunder. This was the expected move with Kenneth Faried (back) out, and Will Barton (foot) getting back to the court to operate as the sixth man in the second unit. Joining Chandler in the starting five tonight will be Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Danilo Gallinari and Nikola Jokic.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets

 

 

Mudiay (ankle) will be available to play Sunday against the Thunder, Adam Mares of DenverStiffs.com reports.
