Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jameer Nelson (toe) returned to action on Wednesday, going scoreless with four assists in 11 minutes off the bench. Emmanuel Mudiay and Jamal Murray have been competing for the starting PG job this preseason, which leaves Nelson looking like a third-string option in the backcourt. Denver values his veteran leadership but there's not enough on-court appeal to touch him in fantasy leagues.

Kenneth Faried    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Kenneth Faried made 10-of-12 shots to score 25 points during Wednesday's exhibition, adding seven rebounds, one assist and one block in just 19 minutes of action. Faried didn't play in Denver's preseason opener and he's been vocal about his displeasure coming off the bench, which is where he was tonight. This game was a nice reminder of his sheer talent, but the Nuggets' frontcourt is too deep to expect any fantasy miracles -- he's just a deep-league flier while Nikola Jokic, Paul Millsap, Mason Plumlee and Trey Lyles are around.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray lit up the Lakers for 20 points in 23 minutes on Wednesday, hitting 6-of-7 shots including a 5-of-6 mark from deep. He didn't do much beyond scoring, with zero rebounds, two assists, two steals and four turnovers, but he was aggressive all night and could have had a huge scoring night if his minutes weren't capped in the exhibition. Murray was having a lackluster preseason while battling Emmanuel Mudiay (13 points in 21 minutes) for the starting PG job, but this performance should settle the nerves of anxious fantasy owners.

Juan Hernangomez    F  Nuggets

 

 

Juan Hernangomez chipped in 18 points, four rebounds and two assists during Wednesday's win vs. the Lakers, making 7-of-11 shots with four 3-pointers. Denver rested four starters tonight with various minor injuries, including Wilson Chandler and Paul Millsap. That allowed guys like Hernangomez and Trey Lyles (12 points in 24 minutes) to step into the starting lineup, but this doesn't have long-term repercussions.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Gary Harris (right shoulder strain) has been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason matchup with the Lakers. Harris dealt with a minor right shoulder contusion last season, but it wasn't an issue that forced him to spend any time on the sidelines. He looked fine on his way to 25 points during Monday's exhibition game, so maybe he's just a bit sore after draining all those buckets. We wouldn't overreact to Harris missing some preseason action, particularly with two weeks to go until the regular season tips.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic (right elbow sprain) will not suit up for Wednesday's preseason game against the Lakers. Jokic didn't appear to be bothered at all by his elbow during Monday's exhibition game, and he doesn't have a history with elbow issues, so hopefully, this is more of a precautionary absence than anything else. After Wednesday, the Nuggets won't take the court again until Sunday vs. San Antonio, and there will be some mild cause for concern if Jokic also needs to miss that one. Stay tuned.
