Game Recaps

Nuggets center Mason Plumlee offered a small, but all-around contribution for Team USA in their loss to Team Serbia in the FIBA World Cup, with two points, three rebounds, and two assists.

Fantasy Impact: This was a good glimpse of what to expect for Plumlee during the fantasy season. His numbers may sway and be a bit larger or smaller, but he is a second unit player on the Nuggets and your fantasy team. He's worth a late round look.


Nikola Jokic played stellar for Team Serbia against Team USA, with nine points, three rebounds, and seven assists in their 94-89 win.

Fantasy Impact: Jokic is staying fresh for the regular season with a month away. There is no reason to doubt his capabilities. He is worth a first-round pickup.


Nuggets forward Juancho Hernangomez and Team Spain won the FIBA World Cup, routing Argentina 95-75.

Fantasy Impact: Hernangomez averaged 10 points, five rebounds, and shot nearly 60 percent from the floor during the FIBA World Cup. He should get more playing time with Denver, and his potential is grand given his stats and champion status from the World Cup. He should be a rising fantasy commodity.
