Jameer Nelson    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jameer Nelson (calf) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game in Dallas. Nelson was spotted sporting a walking boot on Sunday, which is a pretty good indication that he won't be playing again this season with Denver officially out of the playoff hunt. Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) will continue to split the point guard minutes in his absence.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton (left foot soreness) is probable to play Tuesday vs. the Mavericks. Barton was expected to play on Sunday but never actually made his way to the court, although it's looking like he'll be able to return from the six-game absence on Tuesday night. Assuming Barton does play, he'll likely take away some minutes from guys like Gary Harris and Danilo Gallinari.

Kenneth Faried    F  Nuggets

 

 

Kenneth Faried (back) and Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) are being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game in Dallas. Faried was unable to play on Sunday, while Mudiay fought through the pain and got out there for 24 minutes, but we should have a better idea on both these guys depending on what they're able to do during Tuesday morning's shootaround. Faried seems a bit less likely with Denver simply playing for Ping Pong balls at this point, and if he's out again, it'll be Wilson Chandler drawing another start with Mason Plumlee seeing some increased opportunity with the second unit.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton (foot) didn't play vs. the Thunder on Sunday. Barton was expected to "give it a go," according to coach Mike Malone, but he wound up riding the bench all night. Owners should consider him questionable to return on Tuesday. If he can't suit up, expect Jamal Murray and Gary Harris to gain the most in his absence.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets

 

 

Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) came off the bench on Sunday for 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes of action. Mudiay may not have been 100 percent healthy but he didn't appear to be limited, and continues to show improved shot selection. He made 7-of-10 shots tonight, without any free throw attempts, and should see steady playing time in Denver's final two games. Jameer Nelson (calf) was wearing a walking boot on Sunday and is likely done for the season.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler logged a game-high 42 minutes during Sunday's home loss vs. the Thunder, scoring 17 points and grabbing 10 rebounds with two assists and one block. Kenneth Faried (back) was out tonight, which helped inflate Chandler's playing time. He made the most of his offensive chances, going 6-of-11 from the field with a 5-of-10 mark from downtown, and he committed just one turnover. The biggest threat to his value over the final two games is that Denver can't make the playoffs, which could inspire coach Mike Malone to unleash his young guys.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

Danilo Gallinari blew up for a season-high 34 points vs. OKC on Sunday, making 12-of-20 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with four 3-pointers, 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals. Gallo is likely to opt for unrestricted free agency this summer, so this might have been his final home game with the Nuggets. If so, he went out with some fireworks, scoring 22 points in the third quarter alone. Unfortunately for Denver, they blew a late lead to lose at home 106-105, officially eliminating them from the playoffs.
