  • Tyler Cook
    PF, Free Agent

    The Nuggets have waived Tyler Cook who signed a two-way contract earlier this offseason.

    With Cook waived, the Nuggets now have one two-way contract available. They are likely to give this contract to a training camp invitee who has impressed. One name that has come up is P.J. Dozier. This transaction doesn't impact the fantasy landscape.

  • Michael Porter Jr.

    Michael Porter Jr. scored 11 points on 5-of-10 shooting with five rebounds, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer against the Suns on Monday.

    Porter Jr. looks great out there and right now the only real fear is whether or not he can stay healthy. Nuggets fans have waited a while, but Porter has looked fluid and athletic during the preseason as a forward that can do a little bit of everything. He's definitely someone you'll want to watch closely.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray scored 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting with eight rebounds, six assists and two triples in Monday's game against the Suns.

    Murray is the clear No. 2 guy in Denver behind Nikola Jokic (four points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block) and leads a high powered Nuggets offense which has given him a clear green light. Gary Harris (18 points, two triples, two rebounds, two assists and a steal) is going to have to battle his way into production as the Nuggets have plenty of guards that can play.

  • Jerami Grant
    SF, Denver Nuggets

    Jerami Grant scored 22 points on 6-of-8 shooting with two triples, two rebounds and three steals in Monday's preseason game against the Suns.

    Grant got the starting nod with Paul Millsap (DNP-CD) sitting out and should contribute solid minutes to a deep Nuggets team. There's too much depth on the team for him to make a fantasy dent like he did last year, but if Millsap misses time. Grant should post standard-league value as a fill-in.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Neither Paul Millsap (right calf tightness) nor Malik Beasley (right quad contusion) will play against the Suns on Monday night.

    Though neither Millsap nor Beasley have been playing small forward, this should open up a few minutes for the Nuggets' four small forward options as most can slide over to the two or four.

  • Torrey Craig
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig will start at small forward on Monday vs. the Suns.

    Craig is an option to start at the three during the regular season. But even if he does, he would leave a lot to be desired stat-wise. In 37 starts last season, Craig averaged 6.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists and fewer than one three, steal or block in 25.4 minutes per game.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap, who has been dealing with right calf tightness, is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Suns.

    This could mean heavier playing time for Nikola Jokic and Jerami Grant. Millsap averaged 12.6 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.8 blocks for the Nuggets last season. He saw a drop in minutes but can still help fantasy owners in his current role.

  • Torrey Craig
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    According to Harrison Wind, Torrey Craig is expected to play "significant minutes" for the Nuggets against the Suns on Monday.

    Will Barton may miss the game entirely. Craig has carved out a reserve role for the Nuggets, but he does not project as a useful fantasy player.

  • Malik Beasley
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Malik Beasley (right quad contusion) is questionable for Monday's preseason matchup with the Suns.

    If Beasley can't go it should lead to more minutes for Will Barton and Torrey Craig, which means some potential value for DFS players.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap (right calf tightness) is being listed as questionable ahead of Monday's preseason game.

    Millsap's injury isn't thought to be serious and with the talk of Denver engaging in some load management this year, it seems like he's probably trending towards sitting out. That's just speculation though, so check back for another update. Jerami Grant and Juan Hernangomez would pick up the slack if Millsap did indeed sit out.

  • Michael Porter Jr.
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Michael Porter Jr. scored 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting with four rebounds and a steal on Thursday.

    Porter Jr. missed his only 3-point attempt this game and it's exciting to see him playing against NBA level competition, but there are still too many things pushing against him being a productive fantasy player in standard leagues for now.

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic double-doubled with 10 points and 11 rebounds with three assists, three steals and a block against the Clippers on Thursday.

    The Joker is still dishing out beautiful dimes while providing owners with the traditional big man stats and is one of the safest picks in the middle of the first round. Jamal Murray (nine points, two rebounds, two assists and a block) and Paul Millsap (13 points, three rebounds, two steals and two triples) seem to be next in line in terms of usage.

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic is playing against the Clippers in Thursday’s preseason game.

    Jokic missed Tuesday’s game for rest purposes but is good to go. Jokic is a top-tier fantasy pick and is going around pick number six on average.

  • Malik Beasley
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    The Nuggets are engaged in talks with shooting guard Malik Beasley on a contract extension, according to Mike Singer of the Denver Post.

    Beasley appeared in 81 games and averaged a career-high 11.2 points last season, an increase of more than eight points a game from 2017-18, while also shooting a career-best 81 percent on free throws and 40 percent on 3-pointers. He is represented by agent Rich Paul and Klutch Sports while Bobby Marks of ESPN reported last week that his camp turned down a three-year extension offer worth $30 million so a deal is not imminent.

  • Michael Porter Jr.
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Michael Porter Jr. made his long-awaited debut for the Nuggets on Tuesday, playing 17 minutes (all in the second half) and going for nine points (4-for-7 FGs, 1-for-2 FTs) and three rebounds.

    It was a good step for Porter as he knocked down some jumpers and had a dunk. He's got a long way to go before he's contributing regularly, but he's certainly not lacking for confidence. He's a player to watch for sure as the season rolls on and the Nuggets potentially tinker with their roster.
