Mason Plumlee started again on Thursday night, turning in 12 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 30 minutes of action.
The Plumlee-Jokic frontcourt didn't really work the first time the Nuggets tried it on for size but it's been a decent look this year, and it has the added benefit of keeping Paul Millsap's minutes down. Plumlee still is only a rebounding guy for standard-leagues (i.e., not an option) but if the minutes stay in the upper twenties he's going to have more deep-league appeal than anticipated. Millsap had 10 points, six rebounds, two dimes and a triple in 22 minutes off the bench.
