    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray has been downgraded to out ahead of Wednesday's contest vs. the Spurs as he continues to deal with left hamstring tightness.

    This means that Monte Morris will once again draw the start and is worth a play in resumption leagues as long as Murray is sidelined. Through two games, Morris has averaged 33.5 mpg and is returning seventh-round value. Michael Porter Jr. should also continue to see more shot attempts and is a worthy DFS play as well as resumption leagues. Murray joins Will Barton and Gary Harris as inactive for the contest and the three will have another opportunity to play on Thursday vs. the Blazers.

    Jamal Murray (left hamstring tightness) remains questionable for Wednesday's contest against the Spurs.

    The Nuggets want to be cautious with Murray, who has averaged 18.8 points and 4.8 assists. Monte Morris has scored a total of 30 points during two bubble games and will continue to see meaningful action if Murray stays on the sidelines.

    Jamal Murray (hamstring) remains questionable to play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Murray's troublesome hamstring continues to bother him and he could miss yet another of the seeding games. Hamstrings can be tricky to deal with and the Nuggets are going to be extra cautious as they prepare for a playoff run. Monte Morris should continue to log heavy minutes and should be rostered everywhere.

    Michael Porter Jr. scored a career-high 37 points and hauled in 12 rebounds during the Nuggets' 121-113 overtime victory over the Thunder on Monday.

    Porter did a great job making up for the absences of the injured Will Barton, Gary Harris, and Jamal Murray. He shot 12-for-16 from the field and added four triples. Porter has always oozed potential, but don't expect this kind of dominance when the roster gets healthier.

    Jamal Murray (left hamstring tightness) will miss Monday's game with the Thunder.

    Murray said yesterday that his hamstring is still giving him some discomfort, so the Nuggets might go very slowly with his recovery here. Monte Morris and PJ Dozier will continue to split the PG workload in Murray's absence, and at this point Morris should be scooped up in any resumption leagues given the lack of clarity about a potential return.

    Jamal Murray (left hamstring tightness) is questionable for Monday's game.

    Murray was deemed "very questionable" by Mike Malone earlier today so it seems unwise to expect him to suit up tomorrow. If he sits again it'll mean another start for Monte Morris, and extra minutes for PJ Dozier off the bench. Morris makes for a nice pickup in all formats if you're in need of guard stats.

    Mike Malone deemed Jamal Murray (hamstring), Will Barton (knee) and Gary Harris (hip) "very questionable" for Monday's game.

    That's not great news for a Nuggets team that is trying to hold onto the third seed in a competitive Western Conference. Their big concern is being healthy for the playoffs, of course, but this many absences will make it tough for Denver to get its act together during the seeding games. Monte Morris started on Saturday with Murray out, and PJ Dozier logged 16 minutes off the bench. Michael Porter Jr. was also elevated into the starting lineup but battled foul trouble and didn't do much with his opportunity. Torrey Craig should also get minutes if the Nuggets are without their top two wing options in Barton and Harris. Morris and Porter are the only two alternatives we'd feel comfortable with in fantasy lineups.

    Monte Morris was given the starting nod on Saturday, ending with 13 points to go with five assists and three rebounds in 28 minutes.

    The Nuggets were forced to reshuffle their lineup after a number of players were ruled out prior to tipoff. Morris was bustled into the starting five, a position he is not completely unfamiliar with. Despite the promotion, he still managed only a moderate contribution. The Nuggets were completely outplayed during the second half meaning a number of their starters saw very little run during the fourth quarter. If Jamal Murray (hamstring) is forced to miss additional action, Morris would be the obvious choice to pick up the slack.

    Monte Morris will reportedly start at point guard for the injured Jamal Murray on Saturday against the Heat.

    Morris has only been with the team for a week and they will be expecting a lot from him from the start. He was a top-100 player when filling in for Murray throughout the season so there is some value here, especially with Will Barton and Gary Harris out as well. Harrison Wind also reports that P.J. Dozier will serve as the backup point guard while Torrey Craig and Michael Porter Jr. will help fill the void on the wings.

    Jamal Murray (left hamstring tightness) has been ruled out against the Heat on Saturday.

    Murray joins Gary Harris and Will Barton on the sidelines. The Nuggets started Nikola Jokic at point guard a few times during scrimmages but with Monte Morris and P.J. Dozier with the team, they won't be as desperate. Torrey Craig and Michael Porter Jr. should see additional run as well.

    Jamal Murray (left hamstring tightness) finds himself questionable to play on Saturday.

    Murray was able to perform for 25 minutes back on Monday against the Magic, and with the Nuggets already shorthanded, there is a fair chance that he will still be pressed into service. If he is out the point guard minutes will be heading towards Monte Morris. Murray should not be too far away, and still figures to be a mid-round option as the Nuggets look to hold onto or improve upon the third seed in a tight Western Conference playoff picture.

    Jamal Murray led all scorers with 23 points while adding four rebounds, four assists and two steals during Monday's scrimmage against the Magic.

    It was Murray's first scrimmage in Orlando as the team eased him back from a hamstring ailment. He made the most of his 25 minutes by shooting 8-of-12 from the field and 3-of-6 from long range. This showing should help reassure fantasy owners that Murray can maintain his regular season fantasy value going forward.

    According to head coach Michael Malone, the Nuggets are hoping Jamal Murray, Will Barton, Michael Porter Jr. and Keita Bates-Diop will all be in action on Monday.

    Murray is yet to play in a scrimmage but it would appear he is good to go for Monday's game against the Magic. Along with Barton, Porter Jr. and Bates-Diop, Murray's absence has likely been more of a precaution as the Nuggets prepare for a deep playoff run. He had been flirting with top-50 value prior to the shutdown and should be able to continue with similar production upon the resumption, making him a late third-round target in most instances.

    The Nuggets will be without Jamal Murray (hamstring), Gary Harris (hip) and Will Barton (knee soreness) in Saturday's scrimmage.

    All three players also sat out of Denver's first scrimmage on Wednesday. It's expected that these are all precautionary absences, so we wouldn't get too worked up about these issues just yet. If the trio could suit up for the team's final scrimmage next week it would certainly put a lot of minds at ease before resumption drafts, but ultimately the Nuggets will do whatever it takes to ensure that they're full strength for the playoff push.

    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton (knee soreness) will not participate in Wednesday's scrimmage against the Wizards.

    It's nothing serious, but there's little point in the Nuggets wearing down the veteran. Barton proved to be a valuable commodity in fantasy by averaging 15.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.1 steals during the regular season. Gary Harris, Torrey Craig, and Jamal Murray will also miss the game for precautionary reasons.
