  • Paul Millsap - F - Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap delivered 15 points (6-of-8 from the field), six rebounds, two assists, three steals, a block and two 3-pointers in Thursday's win over the Wizards.

    Millsap is rolling and was part of a very balanced attack tonight, though he was the only Denver starter to finish as a positive plus-minus player tonight as the bench stepped up big. The Sapper looks to have found his old form for the final weeks of the season and is going to carry some teams to fantasy titles if he can keep it up for about 10 more days. Nikola Jokic had a pedestrian game by his standards with 15 points, six rebounds, 11 assists and two triples.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig played exceptionally well in Thursday's win over the Wizards, dropping 15 points on 6-of-11 from the field to go with four assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes of action.

    Craig also put the clamps on Bradley Beal in the fourth quarter, frustrating the All-Star into a mostly-quiet frame. He's the Nuggets' defensive stopper but got a nice slice of the offensive pie on a night when four players tied for the team-high with 15 points and eight of nine Nuggets hit the 10-point mark. He's a deep-league threat for cash counters but most fantasy owners can leave Craig on the wire despite the strong game tonight.

  • Gary Harris - G - Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris took a team-high 15 shot attempts on Thursday night but only hit six of them, posting 15 points with five rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer.

    Harris' fantasy value is capped if he's not hitting his shots, and he simply hasn't gotten into any rhythm this season between his injuries and the emergence of Denver's younger bench players. he did tie for the team lead in scoring tonight but it'd be surprising if he finished the season with anything other than a late-round stretch. Malik Beasley chipped in 10 points, two threes and a steal on 4-of-9 from the field in 21 minutes off the pine.

  • Monte Morris - G - Denver Nuggets

    Monte Morris delivered 11 efficient points on Thursday, going 4-of-5 from the field with four assists, a steal, two 3-pointers and just one turnover in 23 minutes.

    Morris remains a great 9-cat play for his low turnovers and he's settled into a nice rhythm since Isaiah Thomas got bounced from the rotation. He'll have more eye-catching nights than this from time to time but he's a really steady, late-round guy. Jamal Murray put up 15 points, four rebounds, two blocks and a triple while hitting 7-of-14 from the field as Denver's guards had quiet but effective nights.

  • Mason Plumlee - F/C - Denver Nuggets

    Mason Plumlee came off the bench for four points, 11 rebounds, four assists and a steal in Thursday's win over the Wizards.

    Plumlee didn't get in on the scoring act in a game where every other Nugget who saw the floor hit double digits, but he did bring in a solid night elsewhere in the box score. He's a nice deep-league source of rebounds, blocks and out-of-position assists as long as you can stomach his poor free throw shooting.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig (left shoulder sprain) returned from a two-game absence and scored 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting with eight boards in 21 minutes on Monday.

    Craig seems to be ready for his normal workload, but he's just a deep-league option on such a stacked and now-healthy Nuggets team.

  • Nikola Jokic - C - Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic filled up the box score in Monday's 114-105 win over the Celtics posting 21 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists, two steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

    Jokic also shot 9-for-14 as the only category in which he didn't dominate was free throw percentage (0-for-0). Jokic continues to provide first-round value, and it doesn't get much safer than the Joker these days.

  • Will Barton - G - Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton netted 20 points on 9-of-17 shooting from the floor on Monday vs. the Celtics.

    The 17 shots were a team high. So while he didn't provide much else (two treys, four boards and two dimes), it's great to see the higher usage. He's consistently inconsistent, but he makes for a great upside play as someone that can go off in just about any category. Gary Harris had a better game than what we've grown accustomed to with 16 points and four threes, though he once again had just one steal. He hasn't had a multi-steal game all month, and that's where much of his value came from in the past.

  • Isaiah Thomas - G - Denver Nuggets

    Isaiah Thomas got to play seven minutes on Monday in Boston, though the only stats he compiled were two assists.

    It was a lovefest before the game with a tribute video and standing ovation for one of Boston's favorites. Thomas will likely be back out of the rotation going forward.

  • Paul Millsap - F - Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap hit the game-winner in Saturday's 102-100 win over the Pacers, delivering 15 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and one block.

    Millsap stepped up with Nikola Jokic ejected and sunk the game-winner, a lefty layup over Myles Turner in the closing seconds. It was a rocky ride to the beginning of the season but Millsap is closing it out with a solid top-70/45 run (8/9-cat) over the last two weeks.

  • Will Barton - G - Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton put up 17 points, six rebounds, five assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in Saturday's home win over the Pacers.

    Barton is just inside the top-150 this season, and he was never able to get into a rhythm in his new starting role because of a devastating hip/core injury. He is just outside the top-100 over the last couple of weeks, however, so perhaps Barton can put up a middle-round finish to his campaign.

  • Gary Harris - G - Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris had another frustrating fantasy night on Saturday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-10 from the field with four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 29 minutes of work.

    Harris is outside the top-150 over the last two weeks and it just doesn't look like he'll be able to get back on track before the finish line. There's early-middle round upside but most fantasy owners have waited long enough for a turnaround. We might see Harris come in at a nice discount in next season's drafts, though his injury risk is apparent as he has missed fewer than 15 games just once in five seasons.

  • Nikola Jokic - C - Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic was hit with a double technical and got ejected from Saturday's game in the fourth quarter.

    Shoutout to the fine people of Denver who shelled out their money to see Tony Brothers in action. Jokic finished with 26 points, seven rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes, putting a nice cap on a relatively tough statistical week. Hopefully the Joker tries to make up for lost time in his four games next week.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig (left shoulder sprain) is available on Saturday night against the Pacers.

    This doesn't have any fantasy impact at all since the Nuggets are at full strength and will only give Craig limited minutes for defensive purposes.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig (left shoulder sprain) is listed as questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Pacers while Trey Lyles (left hamstring strain) has been removed from the injury report.

    With Denver close to being full-strength neither Craig nor Lyles should be on any fantasy rosters.
