    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) is being ruled out against the Wolves on Monday.

    Millsap will miss a seventh consecutive game as he nurses the injury, and there isn't a definite return date for the big man. Millsap has top-100/110 per-game value on the season, but his continued absence hasn't helped matters. He is a hold if you can afford it, but not every owner has that luxury, and if you are fighting for wins, he is a guy to consider dropping for a hot pickup. Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee will continue to benefit from Millsap's absence.

    Gary Harris (right adductor strain) is being ruled out of Monday's matchup with the Wolves.

    With Harris and Jamal Murray (ankle) absent again, Michael Porter Jr., Malik Beasley and Monte Morris will again see extra minutes and opportunities. It is unclear how much more time Harris or Murray will miss.

  • Jamal Murray

    Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain) is being ruled out of Monday's matchup with the Wolves.

    Monte Morris should again pick up the start in Murray's absence and should be on rosters until Murray is able to get back on the floor. Malik Beasley and Michael Porter Jr. will be relied upon more as well.

  • Michael Porter Jr.
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Michael Porter Jr. put up 10 points with eight boards in 23 minutes of action in a loss to the Pacers on Sunday.

    Porter Jr. has been gaining some serious hype since he has started getting more minutes in the rotation. He has put up top-100 value over the past two weeks and should be picked up in all formats as he should see over 20 minutes per game for the remainder of the season.

  • Jerami Grant
    SF, Denver Nuggets

    Jerami Grant scored 16 points with five boards on 6-of-9 shooting in a loss to the Pacers on Sunday.

    Grant added one steal and one block to the box score. He has been starting since Paul Millsap went down and has produced solid value for 14-plus team formats. Mason Plumlee has also seen an increased role since he went down. Plumlee put up 13 points and four assists on 6-of-7 shooting in this one. Both guys will produce solid value for deeper leagues until Millsap returns.

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic played well on Sunday as he put up 30 points and 10 rebounds in a 115-107 loss to the Pacers.

    Jokic shot 10-of-16 from the field and 8-of-12 from the stripe. He also added four assists, three steals and two triples to the stat sheet. He is a top-20 asset on the season and top-10 over the past two months, so look for him to be a first-round value the rest of the way.

  • Monte Morris
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Monte Morris did not play well against the Pacers on Sunday as he put up two points and five assists on 1-of-7 shooting.

    Morris was supposed to be a prime streaming option, but he has not played well in his last two started with Jamal Murray (ankle) out. He will likely still have another couple of games to improve until Murray returns, but he will not hold any long-term value aside from assists in deep leagues.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Pacers.

    Monte Morris will continue to start in place for Murray while he's sidelined and is a worthwhile stream and DFS option.

    Gary Harris (right adductor strain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Pacers.

    Nuggets head coach Mike Malone said he has no plans to rush Harris back because he doesn't want a repeat of last season. Monte Morris and Malik Beasley will continue to see extended run with Harris and Jamal Murray sidelined.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    Millsap will miss his sixth consecutive game and being ruled out a full day in advance is not a good sign. He is a hold if you can afford it with top-100 numbers on the season but it is becoming increasingly difficult and he will surely be missing additional games further along in the season even once he is cleared from the current injury so a drop is not out of the question. Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee will continue picking up the slack in his absence.

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic posted a 23-12-8 line with two blocks in Thursday's 134-131 win over the Warriors.

    Jokic went 10-for-20 from the floor and hit all three of his free throws in 44 minutes of action. Now that he has his legs under him, he's been pushing out first-round lines on a nightly basis. The eight turnovers were a bit uncharacteristic, but we'll live with that as long as he keeps bringing the rest.

  • Will Barton
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton led the Nuggets in scoring on Thursday with 31 points on 11-of-20 shooting with five rebounds, seven assists, a steal, a block and seven triples.

    Barton was an inferno from deep, connecting on 7-of-10 from distance and looks to be the biggest beneficiary of Jamal Murray and Gary Harris sitting. He should have been owned and starting in all standard leagues prior to tonight anyways, so expect some increased production in the next few contests.

  • Monte Morris
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Monte Morris had a quiet night on Thursday, scoring 11 points on 3-of-9 shooting to go with three rebounds, three assists and a triple.

    Morris got the starting nod with Jamal Murray (ankle) sitting and while he didn't put up a spectacular line, he's still worth streaming if Murray misses more time.

  • Mason Plumlee
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Mason Plumlee scored 15 points on 4-of-7 shooting with 15 boards, four dimes, one steal and two blocks on Thursday.

    Plumlee logged the same amount of minutes (27) as starter Jerami Grant (27 minutes, six points, four boards, two assists and two steals) and outplayed him on both ends of the floor. Grant couldn't capitalize with Paul Milsap sitting and it's unlikely that he'll be the top-100 guy he was in OKC last season anytime soon. He still has potential to reach that point, but it's just not now.

  • Michael Porter Jr.
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Michael Porter Jr. scored 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting with 10 boards, five dimes, two steals and three triples on Thursday.

    Porter Jr. had the hot hand shooting the ball, knocking all three of his triples and all three of his free throws, but the real note here is the rebounds and dimes. He's a solid scorer, but if he can consistently provide numbers outside of scoring (on unsustainable efficiency) then there's a chance for him to hold standard league value. For now, he's still a watch list guy.
