    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Hornets with the lingering knee issue.

    The veteran has been on and off the court lately, missing six of the Nuggets past 15 games due to the knee issue. Millsap is still a top-120 player in 9/8 cat leagues on the year and makes for a fine option when he is playing. Jerami Grant should continue to start while Mason Plumlee sees extra time off of the bench.

    Jerami Grant played well in a start for Paul Millsap on Sunday as he put up 11 points in a 114-104 win over the Clippers.

    Grant shot 2-of-6 from the field and 7-of-12 from the stripe. He added two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal to the stat sheet. Grant's defensive upside makes him an enticing option to add in standard formats as long as Millsap remains out.

    Paul Millsap will not partake in Saturday's contest against the Cavs due to his ongoing struggle with a left knee contusion.

    This will be Millsap's second straight game missed and he will now have missed four out of the last eight games that the Nuggets have played due to this injury. Primary replacement targets include Jerami Grant and Michael Porter Jr., with Porter being the riskier play that offers juicy upside. If you are seeking defensive stats Grant is your man. Millsap is no longer worth holding in standard leagues as he offers such limited upside when healthy.

  • Jerami Grant
    SF, Denver Nuggets

    Jerami Grant got the start on Wednesday and put together a strong performance, ending with 15 points, five rebounds, two assists, a steal and three blocks.

    Grant has performed well in Paul Millsap's absences this year. He becomes a strong DFS and streaming option on these days, but is not someone you want taking up a spot on your roster in standard leagues.

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) is now being listed as questionable ahead of Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

    Millsap's status keeps flipping back and forth between questionable and out, so this is a situation to monitor as we get closer to game time. If Millsap sits Jerami Grant would likely get the start and play heavy minutes while Mason Plumlee sees a slight boost as well.

  • Will Barton
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton went for 19 points (8-of-14 FG), five assists, three rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal vs. the Kings on Sunday.

    Barton remains a steady mid-round play as he has slowly carved out a solid role with the Nuggets this season. Continue deploying him with confidence in his bounce-back season. With Paul Millsap missing this game due to a bruised left knee, Jerami Grant had a big night with 18 points, two blocks, two 3-pointers and one steal. Grant has late-round value while Millsap is out, but that should not be something you can rely upon long term.

  • Mason Plumlee
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Mason Plumlee started on Saturday for Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) and was effective in 20 minutes, chipping in 15 points (6-of-10 shooting), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Plumlee may have started, but it was Jerami Grant who saw more run in 32 minutes off the bench. Grant tallied 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting with four rebounds, one 3-pointer and one block. It appears that both these guys will be in a tug-of-war for value in Millsap's absence.

  • Mason Plumlee
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Mason Plumlee is expected to start at power forward for the injured Paul Millsap.

    This comes as a surprise as Jerami Grant has started for Millsap several times this season. Nonetheless, Plumlee becomes a rock solid streaming option and could be used in DFS for some value.

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Grizzlies.

    Jerami Grant will most likely draw the start in Millsap and becomes a viable streaming and DFS play. Grant is slowing gaining value and is a worthwhile streamer for as long as Millsap is out.

    Paul Millsap is questionable for the Nuggets-Grizzlies game on Saturday due to a left knee contusion.

    The left knee contusion refuses to go away for Millsap who is quickly losing his appeal in standard leagues. He still has late-round value when he is healthy, but he only received 16 minutes on Wednesday. Perhaps the injury is what kept him off the floor, and if it makes him miss Saturday's game he will be falling on the cut line for standard league managers. The competition from Jerami Grant in Denver along with these types of injuries are too much to make Millsap a hold without an IL spot to throw him onto. If Millsap sits out Grant would jump into late-round value.

    Paul Millsap scored 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists and a steal on Monday.

    Millsap was dealing with some knee soreness, but still outplayed Jerami Grant (20 minutes, 11 points, one rebound, one triple and one block) in this one. Grant got the game-saving block on Devin Booker but still doesn't play enough to warrant ownership, He's the guy to own in Denver as long as he's healthy and Grant is a pretty valuable handcuff.

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Lakers.

    Millsap is back on the injury report and we could expect Jerami Grant to draw another start if he is forced to sit out. The Nuggets may opt to play a decent amount of Mason Plumlee as well in a matchup against the Lakers and their towering frontcourt.

    Paul Millsap's (right quad strain) status for Wednesday's game against the Magic will be determined after warm-ups, making him a game-time decision.

    Millsap is in jeopardy of missing his third consecutive game on Wednesday. If he does miss the game, Jerami Grant will continue to see additional minutes as he has replaced Millsap in the starting lineup.
