Nuggets News

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets



Will Barton (left foot soreness) is questionable to face the Pelicans on Friday. He's missed the last four games, but he was ruled out during warmups on Wednesday. In other words, Barton is likely going to be a game-time decision. With the Nuggets having most of their wing depth right now, Barton is not someone fantasy owners should count on the rest of the season. His return could take a few minutes away from Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, Gary Harris and Danilo Gallinari.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets



Jameer Nelson (right calf) is not expected to play against the Pelicans on Friday. He played 32 minutes in his return to the lineup on Wednesday, but apparently he's dealing with soreness or an aggravation. With Nelson likely out, that should push Jamal Murray back to the starting lineup with Emmanuel Mudiay behind him. Murray could be worth a look for his upside, but he hasn't played well in his four of his last five games.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets



Danilo Gallinari is expected to decline his $16.1 million player option for the 2017-18 season. Italian head coach Ettore Messina said Gallo is undecided about playing for the national team this summer because free agency begins (July 1) during their training camp for Eurobasket. He was never expected to opt into his player option anyways, as he's set to see a substantial raise under the new salary cap. If Gallo moves on from Denver next season, Juancho Hernangomez could be looking at a significant bump in value.

Kenneth Faried    F  Nuggets



Kenneth Faried (back) scored 10 points in just 13 minutes vs. Houston on Wednesday, making 4-of-7 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs with two rebounds and one assist. Faried was active one day after leaving with a back injury, a surprisingly quick turnaround for the oft-injured veteran. He looked great early but didn't play in the final 17 minutes tonight, with most of his opportunities going to Wilson Chandler (16 points, five rebounds in 34 minutes). Whether or not his back is healthy, it's hard to trust Faried with just four games left on the schedule.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets



Jamal Murray came off Denver's bench on Wednesday for just eight points on 3-of-13 shooting, including in 0-of-6 mark from downtown. The good news is that Murray added four assists, three rebounds, two steals, one blocks and zero turnovers in 26 minutes off the bench. Murray is a fantastic long-term asset in keeper and dynasty leagues, but he's a shaky asset over the Nuggets' final four games.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets



Jameer Nelson (calf) returned to action on Wednesday with eight points on 3-of-9 shooting, two 3-pointers, five assists, two rebounds and three turnovers in 32 minutes. Nelson started the game, shifting Jamal Murray to the bench, and his return puts a serious dent in Emmanuel Mudiay's appeal as an end-of-season addition. The Nuggets trail the Blazers by just one game for the No. 8 seed, so all signs point to Jameer playing his usual role as a starter down the stretch.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets



Emmanuel Mudiay finished Wednesday's road loss with six points, six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 16 minutes off the bench. Mudiay was coming off two strong performances with Jameer Nelson (calf) out of commission. The other shoe dropped tonight, and Mudiay may not have stayed in the rotation if Will Barton (foot) were active. He's a combined 10-of-29 (34.5 percent) from the field in his past three games, and is impossible to trust now that Jameer is active.

Apr 06 - 12:07 AM

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets



Gallinari posted 23 points (8-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and three assists over 38 minutes in Wednesday's 110-104 loss to the Rockets.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets



Jamal Murray will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Rockets. Jameer Nelson (calf) is back in the starting lineup, so Murray's minutes will likely be in the 20s tonight. The rookie has struggled against the Rockets this season, so he's not the most alluring fantasy target tonight.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets



Nelson (calf) is good to go for Wednesday's matchup against the Rockets, Nuggets' announcer Jason Kosmicki reports.
