Jerami Grant notched 20 points (7-18 FG, 2-8 3PT, 4-4 FT), nine boards, one assist, one steal, one block, and one turnover in Saturday's Game 5 loss to the Lakers.
Grant really turned it on in the final three games of this series, as he produced an average of 21 points. His presence was felt on both ends of the floor, and he proved to be a valuable asset with Jokic struggling with foul trouble and Porter Jr. having major defensive troubles. With a player option for next year, it's not inconceivable that he garners attention from multiple suitors and earns a larger role elsewhere. That would certainly provide a nice boost to his fantasy value.
Jerami Grant produced 26 points (7-11 FG, 2-5 3PT, 10-12 FT), three rebounds, one assist, two steals, and two turnovers in Tuesday's victory against the Lakers.
Grant came out of nowhere tonight, punishing the Lakers with 26 points: his second-highest total this season. If he can record any more performances even half as strong as this one, the Nuggets could make this a tight series. Despite tonight's remarkable effort by Grant, he remains off the radar in DFS.
Jerami Grant had five points (1-9 FG, 0-5 3PT, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, and three blocks in Saturday's win against the Clippers.
This was Grant's worst shooting game since the NBA restart debut, but his defense was huge tonight and a key factor in Denver tying up the series. He'll likely produce better scoring performances the rest of the series, but should be avoided in DFS.
Jerami Grant pitched in 18 points (6-9 FG, 4-7 3PT, 2-2 FT), one rebound, two blocks, and three turnovers in Sunday's victory versus Utah.
This was Grant's best performance of the series. He still doesn't do very much on the stat sheet outside of scoring, but coach Michael Malone has needed him on defense, especially with Michael Porter Jr. struggling on the defensive end of the floor. The Nuggets will need Grant to continue playing like this if they hope to complete the comeback.
Jerami Grant produced 19 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3PT, 7-8 FT), three assists, one steal, and one block in Monday afternoon's shootout against Utah.
Still without the services of Gary Harris and Will Barton, the Nuggets once again gave Jerami Grant a heavy dose of minutes. He shot a team-high eight free throws in 39 minutes. Look for Grant to continue putting up double-figure scoring performances throughout the series.
