Fantasy Impact: Nikola Jokic has reportedly won his second straight MVP becoming the 13th player in NBA history accomplish this feat and the first full time center to do so since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1976. Jokic finished the regular season averaging 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds and 7.9 assists. The multi-talented big man also shot 58.3% from the field, 33.7% from beyond the arc and 81% from the charity stripe. The Joker became the first player in NBA history with at least 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 500 assists in a single season.

Fantasy Impact: Porter is dealing with a back issue that has kept him out for nearly the entire season, and it's becoming increasingly clear that he probably won't return at all this season. The Nuggets will be shorthanded, and will need young players like Bones Hyland to step up if they want to have an extended playoff run.

Fantasy Impact: Murray, who is still recovering from a torn ACL, is considered unlikely to return to the team during the playoffs. There was some optimism that he would be able to return for the late-season games, but that hope is quickly getting stifled out. While there's still a slight chance he sees the court in an extended playoff run, it looks likely that he will just opt to continue his rehab to be healthy for next season.

Bones Hyland provided 16 points (5-8 FG, 4-5 3Pt), seven assists and one steal over 21 minutes of play in the Nuggets’ 122-109 win against the Grizzlies Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Hyland was impactful in his role off the bench Thursday, as he shot efficiently from behind the arc and led the team in assists. The VCU product has enjoyed a fruitful rookie campaign -- especially post All-Star break -- and he'll look to finish off strong in the Nuggets' last regular season game on Sunday before the playoffs begin.

DeMarcus Cousins finished with 12 points (4-11 FG, 1-6 3PT, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, and a block in the losing effort.

Fantasy Impact: Boogie logged some solid minutes off the bench for Denver in this one. He will be tough to trust in fantasy playing behind the reigning MVP, but it is always fun to see him playing well.

Bryn Forbes finished Sunday night's tilt with 17 points (6-10 FG, 5-6 3PT), one rebound, one assist, and one steal to go along with one turnover in 25 minutes of action in the Nuggets' 124-92 blowout win of the Trailblazers.

Fantasy Impact: Forbes shot 60% from the field in this one and produced great fantasy value as the Nuggets bench saw higher playing time than usual due to the nature of the blowout. The guard is averaging only nine PPG on the season and should likely be left on waivers for the time being.

Davon Reed contributed 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-5 3PT), seven rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes of Denver's 108-104 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Reed provided some much-needed production with Nikola Jokic out on Wednesday. However, this was the first time all season that the 26-year-old put up solid fantasy production, so he can be left on waivers due to this inconsistency.
