Denver Nuggets

Western Northwest

Paul Millsap finished with 10 points (4-for-8 FG, 0-for-2 3Pt, 2-for-2 FT), six rebounds, three steals, and one block in 29 minutes of action against the 76ers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Millsap is also having a down season for the Nuggets by his standards averaging 12.9 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game but is on pace for his best season from the free throw line at 87.8 percent so far.

Gary Harris finished with 14 points (5-for-12 FG, 1-for-5 3Pt, 3-for-3 FT), five assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 33 minutes of action against the 76ers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Harris has been a disappointing fantasy option this season as Will Barton continues to outplay him. If Murray misses time, Harris stands to benefit.

Category: Game Recaps

Nikola Jokic finished with 15 points (7-for-11 FG, 1-for-4 3Pt, 0-for-0 FT), 11 assists, seven rebounds, and one block in 33 minutes against the 76ers on Tuesday in a loss 97-92.

Fantasy Impact: The Nuggets have to feed Jokic more this season if they plan on making it deep into the playoffs. Jokic is down about four points per game this season while taking a shot less per game. This needs to change.

Jamal Murray suffered a trunk contusion on Tuesday against the 76ers and did not return. Murray lasted just five minutes and added just one rebound. (Source: Mike Singer on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Murray is officially listed as day-to-day as the X-rays came back negative. If Murray misses time, Will Barton, Gary Harris, Malik Beasley, and Monte Morris will all get a boost.

Category: Injury Updates

Will Barton finished with a season-high 26 points (10-for-19 FG, 2-for-7 3Pt, 4-for-5 FT), seven assists, seven rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in 40 minutes of action on Tuesday in a loss to the 76ers.

Fantasy Impact: Barton could be in line for more value and opportunities if Jamal Murray (trunk) misses any games. Barton is the preferred option right now over Gary Harris who continues to struggle.

Jerami Grant went for 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-7 3Pt), two rebounds, one steal and a block over 24 minutes in the Nuggets' 105-102 loss to the Nets on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Grant was stroking it all game, draining a season-high five triples in Sunday's loss. He led the bench in scoring, though he's been completely inconsistent all season. Grant is averaging 9.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.1 treys across 22.0 minutes per contest this season, and it's unrealistic to expect regularity in his performances. He should remain on the waiver wire outside of deep leagues.

Mason Plumlee finished with 11 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, three steals, and one block in 21 minutes in a win over the Knicks on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: A solid outing by Plumlee who was able to get 21 minutes behind Nikola Jokic with the game well in hand. He's a solid option if Jokic was to sit out.

Category: Game Recaps

Juancho Hernangomez had 12 points (4-12 FG, 4-8 3 Pt), three rebounds, and four assists across 24 minutes in the Nuggets' win over New York on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Hernangomez had more minutes in the win over the Knicks in part due to the blowout nature of the game. Though this was one of his better statlines for the season, albeit modest in terms of fantasy, he doesn't remain a player worthy of fantasy consideration.

Bol Bol scored 16 points (6-12 FG) and added 11 rebounds for the Windy City Bulls, a Denver Nuggets G-league affiliate.

Fantasy Impact: Bol recorded a double-double in just 20 minutes of play. Fortunately, the Nuggets have the depth in the NBA to allow Bol to rehab and refine his game in the minors. A dynasty stash, for now, but when his time comes to make an impact in the NBA he should have no problems stuffing the stat sheet.

Category: Game Recaps

Torrey Craig scored eight points (4-6 FG, 0-2 3 Pt), adding one rebound, three assists, and two steals, and blocked three shots across 18 minutes in the Nuggets' win over Houston on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Craig was a nuisance on defense forcing both James Harden and Russell Westbrook into several turnovers. Including a steal by Craig that transitioned to a 360 dunk on the other end. His effort on defense will continue to provide opportunities for increased minutes which could lead to similar fantasy scores.

Category: Game Recaps

Monte Morris finished with 10 points (4-for-11 FG, 1-for-2 3Pt, 1-for-2 FT), seven assists, three rebounds, and a steal in 19 minutes of action on Thursday in a win against the Nets.

Fantasy Impact: Morris has a knack for doing a little bit of everything for the Nuggets off the bench and rarely turns the ball over. He is a good guy to have at the end of your bench in deep leagues, especially if you need some help with assists.

Category: Game Recaps

Michael Porter Jr. had two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3 Pt), zero rebounds, and zero assists across eight minutes in the Nuggets' close win over Philadelphia on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Porter Jr. has continued to see minimal playing time since his successful debut. His stats have therefore taken a major hit too. He's clearly not fantasy worthy at this point.

The Denver Nuggets are interested in reaching an early extension deal with shooting guard Malik Beasley. The deadline is October 21. (Source: The Denver Post)

Fantasy Impact: This is a promising sign for Beasley's tenure on the Nuggets. He has been averaging nearly 16 points and 55 percent shooting from the field. The desire to get a deal done early shows the Nuggets' commitment towards him and his value on the second unit. Monitor his deal status and playing time before drafting him. He may be a waiver-wire pickup sometime into the season if he gets more playing time.

Category: Rumors

The Denver Nuggets came to terms with undrafted power forward Tyler Cook on a two-way deal in August. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Cook played three seasons for the Iowa Hawkeyes, averaging 14 points, six rebounds, and one assist during his tenure. Now in the NBA, his role on the Nuggets will start off small. As of right now, monitor his playing time for Denver during the beginning of the season. He's not a fantasy worthy pickup yet.

PG Isaiah Thomas is headed to the Washington Wizards on a one-year deal. Thomas spent last season on the Nuggets but appeared in only 12 games. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Wizards are signing the diminutive PG on a one-year prove-it deal as a response to losing Tomas Satoransky to the Chicago Bulls. Thomas will likely get some spot starts alongside Bradley Beal and hold down the fort until the injured John Wall returns. However, temper expectations for him, as he may never achieve the 28.9 PPG that he scored in that magical 2016-2017 season with Boston. Regardless, he should get plenty of opportunities to show that he can still play at the highest level.

Trey Lyles drew the start in place of Paul Millsap on Sunday night as he finished with 15 points, nine rebounds, and two assists in 27 minutes. Lyles went 6-for-12 from the field and 3-for-7 from three.

Fantasy Impact: Lyles hasn't really been a fantasy option this year but will get a chance to close the year out strong as I fully expect Millsap to sit out of the remaining two games.
