Mason Plumlee (abdominal contusion) and Will Barton (sore foot) said they will play on Friday vs. Hornets.
With the Nuggets in a heated battle with the Blazers for the 8th seed, expect their players to play through some injuries. Plumlee’s minutes took a hit once Wilson Chandler returned and Will Barton’s minutes went down with Danilo Gallinari back. Both remain 14-team guys even with their minutes in the low twenties and both are one injury away from being must-own in 10-team leagues.
UPDATE: Will Barton is now considered doubtful.
Update: After going through shootaround, the Nuggets say Will Barton has been downgraded to doubtful.
