Michael Porter Jr. said that his right ankle is now properly healed.
Porter missed six games with a right ankle injury, and though he was able to play in nine of Denver's last 10 games (the absence was a DNP-CD) before the hiatus, he admitted that his ankle was still bothering him and he was playing through pain. MPJ flashed tremendous potential when given the appropriate minutes but it's going to be hard for him to hold fantasy value outside of deeper formats when the Nuggets are fully healthy — he topped 15 minutes just three times in those nine games. The silver lining of the league's suspension is that hurt and injured players are getting the chance to heal up, Porter included.

The Nuggets have announced that the person who tested positive for COVID-19 is now symptom-free.
The team never said who tested positive, only that it was a member of the organization. The Nuggets have completed their 14-day quarantine, so hopefully all involved are able to remain healthy moving forward.

The Nuggets announced that a member of their organization tested positive for COVID-19 but they did not specify if the person was a player or not.
The team went on to say that the affected individual is in self-isolation and is being taken care of. The Nuggets flew home to Denver immediately after playing their last game in Dallas on Wednesday, March 11th.

March 11, 2020, 11:09 pmWill BartonSG, Denver Nuggets
Will Barton shot 9-of-17 from the field on his way to scoring 23 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block on Wednesday.
Barton also shot 4-of-9 from deep and he certainly wasn't the reason the Nuggets fell to the Mavs on Wednesday. Barton took the second most field goal attempts for the Nuggets behind Jamal Murray tonight.
March 11, 2020, 11:06 pmNikola JokicC, Denver Nuggets
Nikola double-doubled on Wednesday with 14 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists in a 113-97 loss to the Mavs.
The Joker shot 7-of-10 from the field but wasn't able to lead the Nuggets to a win. He also turned the ball over five times, but it's easy to overlook that given the production in rebounds and assists.
March 11, 2020, 11:01 pmJamal MurrayPG, Denver Nuggets
Jamal Murray scored 25 points on 10-of-22 shooting with six rebounds, five assists and three triples on Wednesday.
Murray shot just 3-of-11 from three, but that didn't stop him from pulling through with a solid fantasy stat line.
March 9, 2020, 11:32 pmJamal MurrayPG, Denver Nuggets
Jamal Murray led the Nuggets to a 109-95 win over the Bucks with 21 points, five rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers.
Murray led the Nuggets to a win over the shorthanded Bucks and had the highlight play of the night when he dunked all over D.J. Wilson. It was called an offensive foul, which was definitely an incorrect call, but Murray and the Nuggets are fine with it at the end of the day because they came home with the win.
March 9, 2020, 11:31 pmJerami GrantSF, Denver Nuggets
Jerami Grant came off the bench on Monday and scored 19 points on 6-of-13 shooting to go with six rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers.
Grant had a great night off the bench and it was a rare game where Paul Millsap (20 points, 8-of-15 shooting to go with 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and three triples) also played well. These games are rare and as long as Millsap is starting, he's the guy to own.
March 9, 2020, 11:30 pmGary HarrisSG, Denver Nuggets
Gary Harris scored 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers on Monday.
Harris played well tonight and kept bringing in the steals. He's a steals streamer with some 3-point upside.
March 9, 2020, 11:30 pmNikola JokicC, Denver Nuggets
Nikola Jokic scored 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting to go with nine rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on Monday.
Jokic had another dud of a game against the Bucks, who rested a majority of their rotation players. It hasn't been a good few games for him, but he'll bounce back soon.
March 9, 2020, 5:57 pmKeita Bates-DiopSF, Denver Nuggets
Keita Bates-Diop will miss Monday's game with a left knee contusion.
Bates-Diop has actually been up and down from the G League since being traded to the Nuggets, so there's no need for his status to be impacting your fantasy teams.

Nikola Jokic scored eight points with eight rebounds and eights assists in a 104-102 loss to the Cavs on Saturday.
Jokic flopped in a bad loss to a weak Cavs team, but his owners have nothing to worry about. Jokic is a top-10 player and is the sixth-ranked player per game in 9-cat leagues over the past two months. He's set up for a top-10 finish and isn't at risk of resting games down the stretch.
March 7, 2020, 10:24 pmGary HarrisSG, Denver Nuggets
Gary Harris scored 18 points on 7-of-8 shooting with three triples and five steals on Saturday.
Harris is a top-110 player over the past month, averaging 10.8 points, 1.3 threes and 1.5 steals per game. He's a low-upside option in 14-team leagues and can be streamed for steals in standard leagues.
March 7, 2020, 10:18 pmWill BartonSG, Denver Nuggets
Will Barton scored a team-high 22 points in a loss to the Cavs on Saturday, adding eight rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes.
Barton was able salvage a nice stat line in a surprising loss to a weak Cavs team. Barton has scored 15 points in four of the past five games. He is a top-75 player on the season and was a top-130 player in the month of February. His value should likely fall in the middle around the top-100 moving forward.
March 5, 2020, 9:50 pmJerami GrantSF, Denver Nuggets
Jerami Grant had a disappointing outing off the bench on Thursday, scoring 11 points in 28 minutes but only adding two boards, two assists and two defensive counters.
Grant was efficient but largely quiet in this one. Luckily, he doesn't tend to hurt fantasy owners much with his play but it's hard to expect consistent value from Grant when Paul Millsap plays his allotment of about 20 minutes. Millsap played 20 minutes here and scored 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting with four boards.
