Torrey Craig    SF  Nuggets

 

 

Craig was called up to the NBA from the G-League's Sioux Falls Skyforce on Tuesday. Craig has yet to play in the NBA this year, but has been seeing significant run in the G-League. In his 35.0 minutes per game, he's averaging 25.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 2.2 blocks and 1.2 steals in six appearances.

Mason Plumlee    PF  Nuggets

 

 

Plumlee (abdomen) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Jazz, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports. Plumlee has been dealing with a core strain since mid-November, but it hasn't caused him to miss any time. Over the past five games, he's averaged 6.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 blocks per contest.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Coach Micheal Malone said Mason Plumlee (core strain) is probable to play Tuesday night vs. the Jazz. There was optimism that Plumlee would see his fantasy value increase quite a bit with Paul Millsap (wrist) sidelined. However, Plumlee has only averaged 5.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.0 blocks in 18.0 minutes per game in his last three outings without Millsap. We shall see if his playing time and production picks up in the near future.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee (core strain) is questionable to face the Jazz on Tuesday. Plumlee hasn't missed a game this season, but he's been limited by this injury for nearly two weeks. Paul Millsap (wrist) is looking at several months on the sidelines, but Plumlee has only averaged 5.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.0 blocks in 18.0 minutes per game in the last three outings without Millsap. If he can't go, Kenneth Faried will likely pick up his minutes, but you never know with coach Malone.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler (back) is questionable to face the Jazz on Tuesday. Chandler has scored a combined seven points in his last two games since returning from a one-game absence, and coach Mike Malone admitted he's playing at less than 100 percent. If the Nuggets play it safe and hold the oft-injured forward out, Kenneth Faried, Will Barton and Juancho Hernangomez will all have to step up. Barton is the safest play, but Faried could have another nice game as well, especially since Mason Plumlee (core strain) is questionable.

Paul Millsap    F  Nuggets

 

 

Paul Millsap (wrist) had surgery on Sunday to reconstruct ligaments in his left wrist, and he is expected to miss "the next several months." The Nuggets' official press release specified that Millsap doesn't have a specific timetable, and that his return is "dependent upon consistent assessment throughout the rehab process." Trey Lyles and Kenneth Faried will both gain in his absence, with Juan Hernangomez also in the mix, but there's no clear-cut winner here. Early indications were that Millsap could miss 2-3 months, so whether fantasy owners hold him depends largely on league depth and IR spots.

Paul Millsap    PF  Nuggets

 

 

Millsap underwent surgery on his left wrist Sunday and is expected to be out for three months, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. While the Nuggets were still mulling options for the injured All-Star, the expectation was always that Millsap would end up having surgery to repair the torn ligament in his left wrist. The timetables leaves Millsap sidelined likely until late March, and in his absence, Kenneth Faried, who started in Friday's win over the Grizzlies, likely becomes a fixture in the starting five, while both Juan Hernangomez and Trey Lyles see extended frontcourt minutes off the bench.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler (back) struggled vs. Memphis on Friday, scoring five points with three assists, two rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes. Coach Mike Malone said before the game that Chandler has been through a lot of pain and discomfort and it showed tonight. The Nuggets are now off until Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz, so Chandler will have a few days to hopefully get back to 100 percent. He's worth holding onto with Paul Millsap (wrist) likely out 2-3 months.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic had a feast in a 104-92 win over Memphis on Friday, racking up 28 points with 13 rebounds, eight assists, one steal, two triples and five turnovers. Jokic hit 11-of-17 shots, but struggled a bit from the line (4-of-6 FTs). He was on the injury report after tweaking his right ankle on Wednesday, but his status for this game wasn't in any real doubt and it's a great sign that he played 36 minutes. Jokic's usage rate climbs from 20.1 to 24.0 with Paul Millsap (wrist) off the court, so his fantasy owners can expect more monster lines like this one going forward.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton came off the bench for nine points, four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in just 17 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Friday. Barton had played 36 and and 37 minutes in his previous two games, but coach Mike Malone said that he's going to base his lineups/rotations on the matchups going forward -- Kenneth Faried went from a DNP-CD on Wednesday to playing 33 minutes on Friday. This is definitely a buzzkill for Barton, but he should be a lot more involved than this on most nights and was averaging 15.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.1 triples in his previous 11 games in November.
