Nuggets News

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray started at point guard on Sunday in place of Jameer Nelson (calf), finishing with nine points, three rebounds, three steals and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes. Murray was the ostensible point guard tonight, but it was Nikola Jokic directing the action offensively. That's a look the Nuggets haven't shied away from, and it resulted in a 116-113 road win vs. the Heat tonight. Nelson was aiming to play today and is just day-to-day, but Murray's role doesn't change much whether he's starting or coming off the bench.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

Danilo Gallinari scored a game-high 29 points in 37 minutes on Sunday, hitting 11-of-19 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs with three 3-pointers, five rebounds and two assists. Gallo added one steal for good measure, while making 4-of-4 free throws in Denver's impressive road win. His shot was missing in action after he returned from a knee injury, with 21.2 percent shooting in his first three games back, but he's turned things around in the past two. He's in no imminent danger of rest days with Denver still vying for the playoffs.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler led Denver's second unit on Sunday with 19 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer. Will Barton (left foot soreness) was out for the second straight game, which opened things up nicely for Chandler. He shot 8-of-13 from the field and made both of his free throws, without committing a turnover in 31 minutes, resulting in a terrific all-around game in any fantasy format.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic racked up 19 points, 10 boards, seven assists and two steals during a win in Miami on Sunday, making 9-of-16 shots with just one turnover in 35 minutes. Jokic was the best player on the court tonight and he helped keep the Nuggets' playoff hopes alive. They're still two games back of the No. 8 seed Blazers, with six games remaining, so the Joker will need to be at his best for Denver to close the gap.

Kenneth Faried    F  Nuggets

 

 

Kenneth Faried will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Heat. Faried had an 18-point, 13-board double-double through 32 minutes as a starter on Friday, so feel free to get him active. Denver will go with a starting group of Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Danilo Gallinari, Faried and Nikola Jokic tonight, with Wilson Chandler coming off the bench.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets
