Nuggets News

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee (abdominal contusion) played just 12 minutes on Friday vs. the Hornets, finishing with four points and four rebounds. He picked up three quick fouls in the first half, so the injury wasn't the reason for the low minutes. His playing time is trending down anyways and he averaged just 17.2 minutes per game over Denver's last three games. He's an obvious drop candidate with the Nuggets playing more small ball.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jameer Nelson (calf) will not return to Friday's game against the Hornets. He walked off the court under his own power and basically went straight to the locker room. Nelson did have some calf issues earlier in his career, but hasn't had a noteworthy incident since 2014. With Nelson out and possibly missing time, Jamal Murray makes sense as a solid speculative add in standard leagues. The Nuggets will likely get Emmanuel Mudiay in the rotation now. Nelson finished with 12 points, nine assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

Wilson Chandler    F  Nuggets

 

 

Chandler will come off the bench for Friday's game against the Celtics, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler is coming off the bench on Friday against the Hornets. This move is all about Will Barton (foot) not playing today, so adding Chandler to the second unit as a go-to scorer makes a lot of sense. This move does also tip the hand that Chandler should play some more small forward a bit, so that may not be good news for guys like Jamal Murray on the wing. Start Chandler like you normally would.

Kenneth Faried    F  Nuggets

 

 

Kenneth Faried will start and Wilson Chandler will come off the bench against the Hornets on Friday. It makes sense to add Chander in the second unit because Will Barton (foot) isn't playing today. This shouldn't change the outlook on Faried too much today, assuming he doesn't come out like gangbusters. He doesn't get the best matchup against Marvin Williams or Cody Zeller.

Barton (foot) has been officially ruled out for Friday's game against the Hornets, Nick Kosmider of The Denver Post reports.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton (foot) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Hornets. Not surprising, as Barton had been downgraded to doubtful earlier in the day. Barton's minutes have been trending in the wrong direction recently due to the return of both Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler, so if you play in a league without an IR spot, it's understandable if you need to cut Barton loose in order to free up a roster spot during the fantasy playoffs.
