Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. Dallas. He was considered probable to play with a core strain, but the Nuggets will make a lineup switch to counter Dallas small-ball lineup. There's no word on whether or not this will be more than a temporary move, but this matchup is better suited for guys like Wilson Chandler and Trey Lyles.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Plumlee is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks due to a lateral trunk strain. It's unclear exactly when Plumlee suffered the core injury, but it doesn't appear as though it will cause him to miss any time. Expect Plumlee to be active Tuesday and play his typical workload of around 20 minutes against the Mavericks.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee (core strain) is probable to play Tuesday vs. the Mavericks. He's been playing through the core strain issue for over a month, and it's likely going to be something he just has to deal with for the rest of the season. Plumlee is not a viable fantasy option in most leagues.

Gary Harris    SG  Nuggets

 

 

Harris posted 18 points (6-16 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two assists, two rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes during Saturday's 112-80 loss to the Spurs. Harris boarded a private plane just hours before tip-off after tending to the birth of his child and arrived in time to draw the start, but it was all for naught despite his nice effort, which was good enough for the second=best scoring output on the team. Harris has been his usual efficient self for most of the season, as he's connected with almost 50 percent of his shots in 39 games making him one of the best shooting guards in the game in that category. He's also averaging almost six three-point attempts per game and connecting with 38.3 percent of them. The 22-year old is rarely going to fill up a huge stat line in multiple categories but he is a good source of steals and 3-pointers for roto leagues and is a decent second or third guard in weekly formats.

Nikola Jokic    C  Nuggets

 

 

Jokic scored 23 points (8-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 40 minutes during Saturday's 112-80 loss to the Spurs. Jokic had a decent night overall despite failing to record a double-double for a third straight game. Since returning from injury, JOkic has basically kept pace with his season averages but is distributing the ball a bit more, as he's averaged 16.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 5.6 assists over that 15-game span. His shot has been about 10 percent colder in that span though (44.6 percent) so he'll need more nights like Saturday to boost that average back up.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Gary Harris (personal) returned to the lineup Saturday at San Antonio and he finished with 18 points across 30 minutes. Harris and Nikola Jokic were the only two players to show up in the 112-80 blowout loss, finishing as the only double-digit point producers. He is having quite the January, averaging 21.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.7 steals per game in six outings. He continues to throw up top-40 fantasy value in nearly all formats, and he is showing no signs of slowing down.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic finished with 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting in Saturday's 112-80 loss at San Antonio. Jokic was very productive, hitting 3-of-6 from behind the arc and 4-of-4 from the free-throw line, persevering despite a blowout on the scoreboard. He was one of just two Nuggets (Gary Harris) to go for double-digit point totals, please his fantasy owners. He also chipping in with nine rebounds, seven assists and steals. Jokic and his teammates have just three games on tap in the upcoming week, but favorable home games against the defensively-challenged Mavericks and Suns highlight the slate.

Trey Lyles    F  Nuggets

 

 

Trey Lyles finished with just three points, five rebounds and one assist with a minus-9 rating in 20 minutes off the bench Saturday at San Antonio. Lyles had an awful 1-of-9 shooting night, snapping a career-high 14-game streak with double-digit points. He was able to extend his streak to 12 straight games with five or more rebounds. Chalk it up as just one bad outing. He has been a top-70 fantasy option over the past month. He'll remain a decent fantasy option until Paul Millsap (wrist) is healthy enough to return.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray managed just two points in Saturday's dismal 112-80 loss in San Antonio. Murray was able to hit just 1-of-7 from the floor, going 0-of-3 from behind the arc, while adding two assists and a rebound with a minus-18 rating. The two-point stinker snaps a career-high 10-game streak with double-digit points. He has hit just 2-of-14 (14.3 percent) from the field over the past two outings, as The Blue Arrow is in a bit of a funk. It didn't help facing a decent defensive club on their home court. He should find more room to operate on Tuesday against Dallas.
