Mason Plumlee started again on Friday against his old Blazers squad, scoring eight points on 4-of-7 shooting with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and six blocks in 25 minutes.
The Nuggets wanted to start Plumlee with Nikola Jokic (27 points, eight boards, six assists, two blocks, two threes, 37 minutes) when they first got him and they might keep it up until Paul Millsap (wrist) returns. Plumlee profiles as a guy with late-round value going forward. Jokic looks like he’s back up to full strength and the buy low window is shut there.
