Malik Beasley    G  Nuggets



The Nuggets have recalled Malik Beasley from the D-League. The Nuggets are a little banged up, so Beasley will provide some emergency depth off the bench on Monday vs. the Lakers. He's not a fantasy pickup and isn't a lock to see minutes.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets



Emmanuel Mudiay has only made three brief appearances since the All-Star break, but he's keeping his head up. "It’s different, but I’m just trying to stay ready as much as possible," Mudiay said. "I’m just working on my game. I can only control what I can control." Nuggets coach Michael Malone said benching Mudiay was "one of the toughest decisions" of his career, and added that it's "a lot to handle for a young man." Jameer Nelson (right hip flexor strain) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Lakers, so it's possible Mudiay could be back in the rotation behind Jamal Murray. To be clear, he's not a fantasy pickup.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets



Nuggets coach Michael Malone hinted that he's not ready to hand the starting PG job over to Jamal Murray just yet. "I have not gotten to that point yet," Malone said. "Obviously, with 18 games to go, we’ll see what happens in those 18 games. I think Jameer [Nelson] has earned the right to be our starter for the time being." These comments were made before Nelson was listed on the injury report with a right hip flexor strain, and he's currently questionable for Monday's game vs. the Lakers. If Nelson can't go, Murray seems like the obvious choice to start with Emmanuel Mudiay still in the doghouse. The rookie is worth a speculative add in deeper formats.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets



Jameer Nelson (right hip flexor strain) is questionable to play Monday vs. the Lakers. It's unclear exactly when Nelson suffered this injury, but he hasn't been dealing with any hip related issues since the end of the 2015-16 season. Owners can expect to get another update following Monday morning's shootaround, but if Nelson is out, we could see Emmanuel Mudiay back in the starting five and there would be more minutes available for Jamal Murray in the second unit.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets



Wilson Chandler (right groin strain) and Jameer Nelson (right hip flexor strain) are being listed as questionable for Monday's matchup with the Lakers. Chandler briefly exited Saturday's game after taking a shot to his groin, and while he played through it, it appears the injury flared up on him on his flight from Sacramento to Los Angeles. Owners can expect to get another update following Monday morning's shootaround, but if both him and Nelson are forced to the sidelines, that would open up minutes for guys like Will Barton, Juan Hernangomez, Emmanuel Mudiay and Jamal Murray. Stay tuned.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets



Nikola Jokic scored 20 points during a 105-92 win over the Kings on Saturday, adding 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes. Only two assists? That's actually his lowest dime total in a 2017 game. Still, Jokic is back after a five-day bout with the flu, posting a 21-point game in a win on Friday. The Nuggets also got a big win on a road back-to-back while the Mavs, Blazers and Wolves all lost today. That gives them a full 2.0 lead over the Blazers for the No. 8 spot. They're also five back for the No. 7 spot because the Grizzlies have lost five straight, As for Jokic in fantasy, you know what to do.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets



Mason Plumlee scored eight points with seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal and three blocks in 21 minutes against the Kings on Saturday. That's a pretty good line and he did get a few minutes next to Nikola Jokic. The Kings do roll double-big lineups quite a bit, so we'll see if coach Mike Malone sticks with it. Plumlee is more of a borderline guy going forward.
