Mason Plumlee scored eight points on 4-of-5 shooting with five rebounds in 23 minutes off the bench in Wednesday’s loss to the Pelicans.
Plumlee hasn’t been great since Nikola Jokic (ankle) went down but he could jump into late-round production pretty easily while Jokic is out. It’s a short-term situation any way one slices it. Trey Lyles added 10 points, 11 boards, four assists, one steal, one block and one triple over 27 minutes and we’d need to see that a lot more before pointing anybody in his direction.
