Nuggets News

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray scored 14 points with three rebounds, two steal and two 3-pointers in 20 minutes against the Kings on Saturday. He actually saw five minutes at shooting guard, which is a great sign for him going forward. We still haven't seen Murray been completely unleashed, but he is definitely trending up after coach Mike Malone's comments earlier this week that he wants to play his rookie more. It'll be tough to count on him with only three games next week, but he might be a hot property in 10 days.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler made 3-of-13 from the field for six points with four rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes against the Kings on Saturday. He did take a shot to the groin and was able to return. Chandler had his three-game streak with over 20 points snapped in this game, but he's had plenty of duds before -- he had a 1-of-8 from the field prior to that streak. Chandler is a must-start player while healthy.

Kenneth Faried    F  Nuggets

 

 

Kenneth Faried (back) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Lakers. The good news is that he's traveling and he was able to get in some work on the court Saturday, but he remains without a timetable to return. With Faried out, the Nuggets will continue to roll with their small-ball lineup of Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari starting at the forward spots. Faried is not a great stash.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

Danilo Gallinari (vertigo) is probable to play against the Kings on Saturday. He looked great in his return on Friday with 20 points in 34 minutes. The Nuggets almost always list guys as probable the game after they return from an ailment, so Gallinari should be all set.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic (illness) is probable to play against the Kings on Saturday. This is a standard operating procedure for the Nuggets to list guys as probable after they missed time. We're fully expecting Jokic to play and thrive in this back-to-back game.

Kenneth Faried    F  Nuggets

 

 

Kenneth Faried (back) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Kings. No surprise here, as Faried is dealing with painful back spasms and remains without a timetable to return. Wilson Chandler, Darrell Arthur and Juancho Hernangomez will continue to soak up the majority of Faried's minutes.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee is coming off the bench on Friday vs. the Celtics. Nikola Jokic (illness) is going to give it a go after a two-game absence, but he might be limited tonight. Plumlee looked great in his last two starts with two straight double-doubles, but his value will likely plummet with Jokic back. If The Joker looks fine tonight, Plumlee will be a borderline option in standard leagues going forward.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic (illness) said that he will play on Friday vs. the Celtics. He was considered doubtful on Thursday and was called "very questionable" early Friday morning, but he will return from a two-game absence. Jokic said he's still congested and he's obviously not going to be close to 100 percent, but he belongs in all season-long lineups. The Nuggets desperately need a win to hang onto the No. 8 seed, so this is a huge relief for Denver fans and his fantasy owners. Expect Mason Plumlee to head back to the bench.
