Mike Malone deemed Jamal Murray (hamstring), Will Barton (knee) and Gary Harris (hip) "very questionable" for Monday's game.
That's not great news for a Nuggets team that is trying to hold onto the third seed in a competitive Western Conference. Their big concern is being healthy for the playoffs, of course, but this many absences will make it tough for Denver to get its act together during the seeding games. Monte Morris started on Saturday with Murray out, and PJ Dozier logged 16 minutes off the bench. Michael Porter Jr. was also elevated into the starting lineup but battled foul trouble and didn't do much with his opportunity. Torrey Craig should also get minutes if the Nuggets are without their top two wing options in Barton and Harris. Morris and Porter are the only two alternatives we'd feel comfortable with in fantasy lineups.
