Kenneth Faried remains out of the lineup with continued lower back issues while Nikola Jokic is questionable for Wendesday’s game with his illness.
Faried probably won’t suit up again til mid-March and his sporadic production in a subtly crowded Denver frontcourt makes him droppable in certain situations. Jokic, on the other hand, seems to be trending in the right direction after being ruled out of Monday’s game close to tip-off. We’ll update his status again tomorrow. If Big Honey can’t play, Mason Plumlee will see close to 30 minutes again and would be a worthy play in any format- he notched 10 points, 12 rebounds and six assists when Jokic sat yesterday and could be relied on for similar numbers in another start.
