Jameer Nelson left Friday’s game after picking up a calf strain and was quickly ruled out for the rest of the night.
It’s not a great sign that the Nuggets ruled him out so soon after he left the court, so this could be an extended absence. With Portland rolling and Denver losing ground in the playoff race, they could potentially hold Nelson out and give Jamal Murray the reigns for the last handful of contests. Emmanuel Mudiay might also rejoin the rotation. Murray is worth a speculative add if you have space, while Will Barton also stands to benefit when he returns from his own injury.
