Nuggets News

Trey Lyles    F  Nuggets

 

 

Trey Lyles erupted for a career-high 25 points on Sunday, hitting 9-of-15 field goals with five 3-pointers, five rebounds and one steal in just 26 minutes off the bench. Lyles' team-high scoring wasn't enough to earn the victory, as Denver was outscored 12-2 in overtime, but that won't sour the mood for fantasy owners who gambled on him. He was coming off a dud on Friday (three points, 0-of-8 FGs), but was a picture of efficiency tonight -- all of his makes came either from downtown or in the restricted area. He's worth a look for cheap, temporary value while Nikola Jokic (ankle) is on the sidelines.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets

 

 

Emmanuel Mudiay fell off on Sunday with three points, four assists and four turnovers in 15 minutes. Jamal Murray's calf injury didn't appear to limit him tonight, but the big problem for Mudiay was Will Barton -- Denver ran most of their offense through him, and he was on the court for 45 minutes tonight. He's too inconsistent to own in most situations, especially with his 39.7% shooting this season.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

The Nuggets fell in overtime on Sunday, despite Wilson Chandler pitching in 18 points, eight rebounds, three 3-pointers, one assist, one steal and one block in 37 minutes. Chandler matched his season-high in scoring, while the minutes were the most he's played all year. The veteran saw most of his playing time at PF tonight, as usual, but he also logged 10.9 minutes alongside Kenneth Faried and Trey Lyles. We'll need to see him string together some good games before biting.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Updating a previous report, Jamal Murray (calf) will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pacers. Joining Murray in the starting five will be Gary Harris, Will Barton, Wilson Chandler and Mason Plumlee. The calf issue limited Murray to just 17 minutes on Friday, but he'll look to bounce-back tonight with a favorable matchup against the Pacers.

Jamal Murray    SG  Nuggets

 

 

Murray (calf) will play in Sunday's game against the Pacers. Murray popped up on the injury report with some tightness in his right calf, though it was never considered to be anything overly serious. After testing the calf out Sunday morning, Murray feels healthy enough to play and should take on his usual spot in the starting lineup. There's certainly a chance the tightness shows up during the game, so Murray will likely be a bit of a risky DFS play Sunday. That said, season-long owners should feel comfortable activating him.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray (right calf tightness) will be available to play Sunday vs. the Pacers. Murray has yet to miss a game throughout his career thus far, so he'll power through the sore calf and get out there, although he could be somewhat limited. He's not the best DFS option today, but season-long owners can go ahead and get him active.

Monte Morris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Monte Morris has been recalled from the G-League. Morris getting the call-up could indicate that Jamal Murray (calf), who is questionable to play Sunday, might not make it out to the court tonight. He'd help backup Emmanual Mudiay if Murray sits, but it's unlikely he'd get enough minutes to make a difference in most leagues.

Monte Morris    PG  Nuggets

 

 

Morris was recalled from the G-League and will be available for Sunday's game against the Pacers. Morris is slated for his first stint with the Nuggets after signing a two-way deal with the team in July. With Jamal Murray (calf) questionable for Sunday's tilt, Morris will provide depth at point guard should Murray be limited or unable to play. Morris, who was the 51st overall pick in the 2017 draft, is averaging 17.4 points, 4.8 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game in the G-League this season.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray (right calf tightness) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. Indiana. Murray appeared to tweak his right ankle on Friday and didn't return to the game after 17 minutes even though he was "available," but now the Nuggets are calling his injury right calf tightness. This sounds like a minor issue, but if Murray can't go, Emmanuel Mudiay would be the biggest beneficiary and is coming off two strong games in a row. Will Barton would also handle the ball more if Murray is out.
