January 20, 2019, 1:30 amJamal Murray - G - Denver Nuggets
Jamal Murray scored 26 points on 8-of-14 shooting (4-of-7 3PTs, 6-of-6 FTs) with two rebounds and five assists over just 25 minutes in the Nuggets' 124-102 win over the Cavs on Saturday.
Murray has been heating up lately with top 55-75 (8/9 cat) returns and shooting numbers that look more like last year vs. this year, where he has seen his free throw percentage drop to 83 percent from an elite and heavyish 90.5 percent. If he could get his steals figured out while he was at it then he'd be the guy owners hoped they were getting on draft day. Nikola Jokic triple-doubled with 19 points, 11 boards, 12 assists and four cash counters in the easy win.
January 18, 2019, 7:22 pmIsaiah Thomas - G - Denver Nuggets
The Nuggets are hopeful that guard Isaiah Thomas (hip) will be able to make his return prior to mid-February’s All Star Break.
This is the first update we’ve seen in a long time for IT3, so it looks like he may actually be back this year. It’s anyone’s guess how he’ll play after being hurt all year and how he’ll fit in the backcourt with Jamal Murray and Monte Morris. There’s no guarantee Thomas will be a consistently productive player with so much depth in Denver but if you have an open IR spot, it can’t hurt to stash him.

Jamal Murray knocked down seven 3-pointers en route to 25 points in Thursday's defeat of the Bulls.
Murray went 8-of-16 from the field and also added five dimes tonight. The Blue Arrow is still in the middle-rounds this season but has been a disappointment considering his big finish to last year had owners envisioning a top-50 season back on draft day. Perhaps he repeats the feat with a big second half for a dangerous Denver squad.

Jamal Murray scored 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting (including four threes) with three rebounds, four assists and one block over 31 minutes in the Nuggets' 142-111 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
It was a big pecking order game in the West and the Warriors walked into Denver and let them know where they stood. Murray's standing with fantasy owners hasn't been great this year, as he has been a top 70-90 guy (8/9 cat) and not the fourth round player he was drafted to be. It's a bit of a buy low moment but we haven't seen the step forward one would like to have seen this season.

Jamal Murray scored 24 points on Sunday against the Blazers on 9-of-18 shooting, adding four boards, three assists, a triple and a steal.
Murray has been a bit cold since Gary Harris went down and finishes the last two-week span at as the 129th player in 8-cat leagues. He should bounce back but we might be looking at a permanent regression in his field goal percentages compared to last season. View him as a top-75 asset with upside to sneak into the top-50. That said the Nuggets are stacked and he could feel a squeeze once everyone gets healthy.

Jamal Murray posted 12 points on 4-of-17 from the field in Saturday's loss but was able to chip in elsewhere with nine rebounds, five assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.
Murray's generally regarded as a points-and-threes guy but he was able to salvage his line from lackluster production in those departments. His shooting still has some room to regress in the right direction, though it'll be a tough climb if he wants to get into the early-middle rounds.
January 10, 2019, 11:27 pmJamal Murray - G - Denver Nuggets
Jamal Murray led the Nuggets in scoring on Thursday with 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting to go with two 3-pointers, six rebounds and two assists.
Murray caught fire a week ago and with Gary Harris (strained hamstring) sitting more games it gives the Blue Arrow some more room to operate. He had a solid buy-low opportunity earlier but things are finally starting to turn around for him.
January 7, 2019, 10:27 pmJamal Murray - G - Denver Nuggets
Jamal Murray struggled on Monday with 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting with two rebounds and four assists.
Murray didn't play well tonight and over his last two games he's scored 21 points on 8-of-26 shooting. The Nuggets are at full strength now which means there will be less volume for Murray to work with but he should be able to get things back on track in tomorrow's game against the Heat.

Jamal Murray scored 34 of his 36 points in the second half of Thursday's 117-113 win over the Kings, adding seven rebounds, six assists, a steal and six 3-pointers.
Murray went 12-of-24 from the field but an uncharacteristic 6-of-10 from the line, though owners will forgive him considering the recent run. Murray is averaging 26.0 points per game over his last five, and that includes some weird duds with eight points against the Knicks and nine points against the Spurs. He's been a buy-low guy pretty much all year thanks to some suspect percentages but you're not going to be getting any discounts after tonight.

Jamal Murray (sprained right ankle) scored 46 points on 16-of-24 shooting (including a career-high nine treys) with six rebounds, eight assists and one block in Saturday's road win over the Suns.
Murray has been disappointing owners all season long and we've been nagging at you guys to buy low so hopefully some of you got in on that.
December 29, 2018, 3:26 pmJamal Murray - G - Denver Nuggets
Jamal Murray (sprained right ankle) is probable to play against the Suns on Saturday.
Murray led his team to victory over the Spurs in a dominant 31-point performance on Friday, and should be available for Saturday. In the case that he isn't, Monte Morris, who should already be rostered in most leagues, would be the biggest beneficiary.

Jamal Murray poured in 31 points in Friday's 102-99 nail-biter over the Spurs, going 13-of-27 from the field along with six rebounds, three assists, a steal and four 3-pointers.
Murray's been a bit of a letdown this season, and .418 shooting is the culprit. That's largely been driven by a strange .285 mark from deep, and considering he's a .346 career shooter we'd be on that pulling up substantially by the end of the season. The same can be said for his current .859 mark from the charity stripe, where he's at .890 in his career. Murray's a late-middle round guy but still has room to improve. He still profiles as a bit of a buy-low option, if you can swing it.

Jamal Murray scored nine points on 4-of-19 shooting in a loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.
He was not the only Nuggets’ star to play poorly, as Nikola Jokic had four points and 10 assists on 1-of-5 shooting. Jokic is a top-15 value and Murray is top-90, so this is a fluke game from the Nuggets duo. Do not panic and expect a bounce back game next time the Nuggets play.

Jamal Murray scored 22 points on 10-of-18 shooting (1-of-4 from deep, 1-of-2 from the line) with seven rebounds, 15 assists, one steal and one block in Tuesday's win over the Mavs.
The Nuggets are in the middle of a two-game week and that's good since Murray always needs some rest. He has disappointed owners with just top 70-90 returns (8/9 cat) on the year and it's because he is only hitting 42.2 percent of his shots and 85.9 percent from the line, so the volume increase has actually hurt. He's a great bet for regression on both fronts and this is an easy buy low moment.
December 16, 2018, 10:31 pmJamal Murray - G - Denver Nuggets
Jamal Murray put up 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting with five rebounds and four assists as the Nuggets got a win over the Raptors on Sunday.
Murray has hovered around top-100 value this season and has the potential to improve that value while Gary Harris and Paul Millsap are out. He has averaged the most minutes on the team this season and there is no reason to believe he will end the season outside the top-100.
