Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee made a start at center against the Lakers with 12 points, six rebounds and six assists in 31 minutes on Saturday. He sure did look healthy and coach Mike Malone allowed him to create out of the post. Plumlee has been playing through a core muscle injury for a handful of games, but he may be able to play 26-30 minutes most nights now. Despite playing just eight minutes next to Kenneth Faried this year before tonight, those two started together and played next to each other for 18.2 minutes in this win. It'll be a matchup-based lineup while Nikola Jokic (ankle) is out, but Plumlee is worth a look in standard leagues if you're OK with ugly foul-shooting percentage.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Juancho Hernangomez, Mason Plumlee and Kenneth Faried will start against the Lakers on Saturday. Well, coach Mike Malone is going to go double big to start. Plumlee and Faried have played together for just eight minutes, so this will be an adventure. Faried is likely the safer fantasy asset because he's healthy, but Plumlee does have upside if you need a center.

Wilson Chandler    SF  Nuggets

 

 

Chandler (back) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Lakers. This will mark the third consecutive game Chandler has missed due to the lingering back soreness. Will Paul Millsap (wrist) and Nikola Jokic (ankle) also unavailable, the Nuggets will look to Keneth Faried, Mason Plumlee and Juan Hernangomez to play expanded roles in the frontcourt.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler (back) will not play against the Lakers on Saturday. This will be his third game out of the lineup and he's likely going to be on the injury report for a handful of games once he's back. With Chandler out, it should be Juancho Hernangomez getting more minutes, and even Malik Beasley could get minutes because the Nuggets will go small a lot. Will Barton will be feasting whether he starts or comes off the bench.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee (core) will play Saturday vs. the Lakers. With Nikola Jokic (ankle) out, Plumlee is expected to start at center. However, coach Mike Malone has yet to formally announce his starting lineup sans Jokic. Whether he starts or comes off the bench behind Kenneth Faried, Plumlee should see 20-plus minutes a night while Jokic is sidelined.

Nikola Jokic    C  Nuggets

 

 

Jokic (ankle) is traveling with the team for their upcoming six-game road trip with hopes of playing near the middle of the trip, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports. From the sounds of it, Jokic will likely be out until at least Friday's game against Orlando -- the third game of the trip. That said, nothing is set in stone, and he is essentially day-to-day while he works through treatment and recovery. More word on his status and a clearer timeline will likely emerge as he continues rehabbing. In the meantime, Mason Plumlee will seemingly be the main beneficiary of Jokic's absence.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

According to Nuggets reporter Harrison Wind, Nikola Jokic (ankle) will travel with the team during Denver's upcoming six-game road trip "with the hope being that he’ll play towards the middle of the six games." This confirms Adrian Wojnarowski's report that Jokic is expected to miss several games. GM's in weekly fantasy leagues should leave Jokic on the bench this week but will hopefully be able to reinsert him next Monday. Mason Plumlee (core) has been cleared to play Saturday; however, coach Mike Malone has yet to announce who will start at center on Saturday. Kenneth Faried and Plumlee will likely divvy up minutes in the middle.

Gary Harris    SG  Nuggets

 

 

Harris finished with 21 points (6-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-8 FT), three rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks in 40 minutes during Thursday's 111-110 victory over Chicago. Harris continued his excellent play of late, with another all-around performance in a tough victory. He has been the Nuggets most consistent player so far this season, and with all their injuries, should play an even bigger role offensively for the team moving forward. He provides elite steals as well as efficiency from both the field and the free-throw line. He should continue to see minutes in the mid to high 30's until the Nuggets get some of their players back.

Will Barton    SF  Nuggets

 

 

Barton totaled 37 points (13-19 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three assists, three steals and two rebounds in 35 minutes during Thursday's 111-110 victory over the Bulls. Barton was outstanding in the come from behind victory, recording a season-high 37 points in the process. After two ordinary performances, he was able to get his shot going Thursday, while also adding a season-high three steals. Nikola Jokic (ankle) looks set to miss some time, and with Wilson Chandler (back) also ailing, as well as Paul Millsap (wrist) on the sidelines, Barton is in line for some extended run. His shot will not always be this reliable, but he worth adding in most formats until the Nuggets get some of their troops back on the floor.
