Veteran forward Paul Millsap posted his first double-double of the season on Tuesday night, scoring 13 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3-pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with a season-high 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals, and one block in 26 minutes during a 119-101 win over the Thunder.
If you started Millsap in DFS formats tonight, then I tip my cap to you. Millsap posted a terrific fantasy line tonight and has picked up the pace defensively of late, notching two-plus steals in five of his past seven games in addition to a block in four straight games. He's also hit two three-pointers in four of his past five games as well. His upside is very limited at this stage of his career and doesn't offer a ton of scoring, but he's playing well enough of late to warrant a look in 12-team formats if you need a big man. Just keep in mind that Michael Porter, Jr. will be returning to the lineup as soon as Friday.
Nuggets veteran big-man Paul Millsap had a nice game on Thursday night, scoring 12 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3-pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four rebounds, four assists, three steals, one block, and one turnover in a win over Golden State.
Millsap came out hot tonight and did the majority of his damage in the opening quarter. The 35-year-old veteran has always had a fantasy-friendly game but simply does not produce enough consistently to warrant much fantasy attention these days. Millsap entered tonight's game ranked outside the top 200 in 9-cat leagues.
Veteran Paul Millsap connected for four three-pointers on his way to 12 points (4-7 FG, 0-2 FT) in a win over Minnesota on Sunday. Millsap added four rebounds, one assist, and one turnover as well in 25 minutes of playing time.
A former fantasy basketball star, the 35-year-old is now in the twilight of his career and no longer offers much in the way of fantasy value anymore. All of his FG attempts tonight came from downtown - not attempting a single shot in the paint. He has also recorded only one steal and zero blocks on the entire season while averaging just 12.5 PPG. Millsap simply doesn't offer enough production to warrant ownership in standard leagues and can be left on waiver wires at this point of his career.
Veteran big-man Paul Millsap shot the lights out on Monday, scoring 19 points (7-8 FG, 3-4 3-pt, 2-3 FT) to go with three rebounds, one assist, and three turnovers in 25 minutes in a 124-111 win over Houston.
Millsap only missed two shot attempts all night, a three-pointer and a free throw attempt. The 35-year-old is now averaging 14.3 PPG with only 3.7 RPG through three games and has yet to record a single steal or block which severely limits his fantasy value. He belongs on the waiver wire in the majority of leagues for the time being.
Nuggets power forward Paul Millsap scored 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3-pt) while pulling down seven rebounds and adding three assists in 36 minutes of action in an overtime loss to Sacramento on Wednesday night.
The 35-year-old veteran did not record any defensive stats, but the playing time tonight is noteworthy. Millsap's days posting early-round fantasy value are long gone, but if he keeps getting 30+ minutes a night, he can certainly carve out some low-end value as a solid big-man that doesn't hurt you anywhere.
