Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton was a menace defensively on Sunday, recording three steals and two blocks while scoring 16 points with four 3-pointers. Barton made 6-of-11 shots overall, and he added three assists and one rebound for good measure. He's often a forgotten man for fantasy purposes, but should still be a reliable value as a lead scorer for the second unit, especially if Jamal Murray is starting.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic (elbow) didn't miss a beat on Sunday as he posted 19 points (7-of-13 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 24 minutes. Jokic's full repertoire was on display tonight, and it's exactly what fantasy owners wanted to see after he rested a sore elbow earlier in the week. He shot a respectable 32.4 percent from downtown last season and seems to have worked on his range this summer -- through three preseason games, he's a combined 5-of-6 from deep.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Gary Harris (shoulder) celebrated his recent extension on Sunday with 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting, three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and zero turnovers in 25 minutes. Harris just inked a four-year, $84 million extension, further proof that the Nuggets view him as a key part of their long-term success. Mike Malone loves him and his minutes aren't in danger no matter what else happens in the rotation -- his ADP is climbing steadily, but he's still a strong target in the early middle rounds.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler (hip) was back in action on Sunday, scoring two points on 1-of-5 shooting in 26 minutes of action. Chandler added three boards and two assists, and the poor offensive showing isn't a big deal -- he's a solid late-round fantasy option as long as he's healthy. The fact that he suited up for this exhibition confirms that his recent hip ailment wasn't serious.

Paul Millsap    F  Nuggets

 

 

Paul Millsap logged 25 minutes to finish Sunday's exhibition loss with 13 points (2-of-11 FGs, 9-of-9 FTs), seven boards, three assists, two steals and one block. Denver rested Millsap and a handful of other veterans on Wednesday, but that was a simple precaution. He's locked and loaded for opening night, and owners can anticipate a bounce-back season after a disappointing 2016-17 campaign -- the Nuggets' pace and passing fit him nicely, and he should thrive in a frontcourt with Nikola Jokic.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jameer Nelson started at PG on Sunday and handed out five assists in 23 minutes, adding two points and two rebounds in the exhibition loss. The Nuggets' PG situation is still unclear, but Jamal Murray still looks like the favorite to start. He was resting tonight, while Emmanuel Mudiay struggled in 19 minutes off the bench, and Nelson did little to separate himself.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler (hip) will play in Sunday's preseason game against the Spurs. Chandler missed Wednesday's preseason game due to a flare-up with his surgically repaired right hip, but the fact that he'll be taking the court at all for an exhibition game suggests this will be a non-issue moving forward. Chandler doesn't offer the highest upside, but his ability to bring a little bit of everything to the stat sheet without hurting you in any one area makes him a worthwhile potential late-round target.
