Nuggets bench big Mason Plumlee (core) is expected to play on Tuesday against the Jazz.
Plumlee has been dealing with the core strain since the middle of November, but it won’t hold him out Tuesday. Since Paul Millsap (wrist) went down the big man has yet to see a big minutes increase as Kenneth Faried has been the main beneficiary. Wilson Chandler (back) could be out Tuesday which should give the Plumlee some extra time at the four. Over the past five games the 27-year-old has averaged 6.4 points, 5.6 boards, 2.2 assists and 1.4 blocks per game.
