Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic dropped a triple-double during a 129-114 win over the Clippers on Thursday, scoring 17 points with 14 rebounds, 11 assists and two turnovers in 30 minutes. That is five triple-doubles in his last 20 games, so look out Russell Westbrook. There really isn't much left to say about Jokic outside of how he's looking like a lock to be drafted in the first round of fantasy drafts next year. The Nuggets are also one of the hottest teams in basketball with their second-ranked offense since the break, so Jokic is a DFS stud unless he's in foul trouble. They have a 2.5 game cushion on the Blazers to hold their No. 8 seed.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton scored a career-high 35 points against the Clippers on Thursday, adding five rebounds, three assists, one block and seven 3-pointers. Those seven treys also match his career best. Barton took full advantage of Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Will Barton (groin) not playing today, and both of those forwards have an unclear return date. Barton was trending down big time coming into the week because of guys like Jamal Murray coming for his minutes, but he basically has a vertical line upward trend right now. He should be owned in standard leagues while Gallo and Wil-Chand are out.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Gary Harris made 6-of-9 from the field and all five from the line for 20 points with two rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers against the Clippers on Thursday. Efficiency is the name of the game for Harris. His 49.2 percent from the field is better than the top-qualifying shooting guard, C.J. McCollum, but Harris does need some more games to qualify himself. Harris has been even better since the break, averaging 16.8 points, 2.6 boards, 2.8 dimes, 1.5 steals and 2.5 treys on 53.1 percent from the field. He's been a third-round player since the All-Star Game in standard leagues.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray made 4-of-14 from the field for 10 points with five rebounds, three steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday. He struggled with his shot, at least the usage was there and he didn't turn the ball over. The combo guard minutes are coming with 11 minutes tonight, which is way more than his average since the break. Of course, Danilo Gallinari (knee) not playing slid Will Barton to more of a straight three, so there were minutes available at SG. Regardless, Murray looks like he's part of the next crop of rookie pickups after guys like Tyler Ulis, Ivica Zubac and Skal Labissiere. If you're looking for a rookie with upside, Murray might be your guy.

Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jameer Nelson scored 16 points with one rebound, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday. The Nuggets shifting Jamal Murray to a combo guard is big for Nelson. This was his first game in double-digit scoring and also just his fourth and fifth steal this month. Even if Nelson does get 30 minutes, his upside isn't too appealing with how the bigs are passing so much. He's really just a low-end guy, but his high floor won't hurt you too much. In other words, don't be afraid to drop Nelson with so many hot free agents popping up these days.

Juan Hernangomez    F  Nuggets

 

 

Juan Hernangomez made a start on Thursday with nine points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes. He's been elite in efficiency for rookies this year and he's always been capable of filling the stat sheet. Per 36 minutes, Hernangomez averaged 13.1 points, 8.3 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.7 blocks and 2.0 treys this season. With both Wilson Chandler (groin) and Danilo Gallinari (knee) having unclear return dates, Juancho is worth a speculative look for those with something to cut.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee scored 10 points with 10 rebounds, six assists and three blocks in 30 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday. While the Nuggets were destroyed with their old big lineup back when Jusuf Nurkic was on the team, they're thriving with it now. In the 47 minutes Plumlee played with Nikola Jokic, the Nuggets have a +26.6 net rating and just smash teams with their offense. That bodes extremely well for Plumlee, who is averaging 10.3 points, 8.0 boards, 5.0 assists, 2.3 blocks and 0.5 steals in the last four games with Jokic. Given that success, Plumlee looks like he's going to be worth owning in standard leagues. Plumlee also said this was the best passing team he's ever been on.
