  After exiting Friday's win over Houston with what was deemed "hamstring soreness", Monte Morris did not play for Denver on Monday due to a "right hamstring strain".

Notes 
 The Australian wonder averaged 10.8 points, 7.4 boards, and 7.4 dimes in the NBL a season ago, and while there is a lot to love about a 6'8 PG, Giddey is very raw coming into the NBA. He's a poor shooter and sub-par defender which makes him a more valuable play in points leagues, but if he can improve his efficiency, he could become a solid contributor in 9-cat formats. Giddey's services are best suited for dynasty leagues or deep redraft leagues at this time, but he has the upside to be relevant in 12-team leagues as a rookie.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Morris and Facundo Campazzo split starting PG duties last season, though it was the latter who saw 28 starts to Morris' 14. In his games as a starter, Morris' production was uninspiring, posting 11.1 points, 3.9 dimes, 2.0 boards and just 0.9 triples. Campazzo was the better facilitator and three-point shooter, though it's unknown who will be the clear-cut starter or if these two will rotate in some sort of committee. Campazzo holds slightly more fantasy value, though both are worth a look at the end of standard drafts or in deeper leagues.
