As we enter a new year, these are but a few of my fantasy wishes; I wish: -Will Barton comes back. -Chris Paul doesn’t miss more than a handful of games when he finally gets…

Juancho Hernangomez underwent successful core surgery on Thursday.
Hernangomez showed flashes at times this year but overall was a disappointment. Hernangomez did tell reporters back in January that his groin was bothering him so this could have played a role in his lackluster play this year. Hernangomez should be ready to roll come training camp.

Juancho Hernangomez was a DNP-CD for Wednesday's game against the Wolves.
Juancho had career highs in games played (70), games started (25), and mpg (19.4) this season. However, with averages of 5.8 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 0.8 APG, 0.4 SPG, 0.3 BPG and 0.5 TOPG he just hasn't shown enough to prove that he could be on the radar heading into next season. Hernangomez ended the year with top-300/275 value.

Juancho Hernangomez (abdominal strain) will be available for the Nuggets when they face off against the Jazz on Wednesday.
His minutes could be limited but his return will mean a hit on the playing time of Trey Lyles. Monitor Hernangomez's minutes tonight as he was holding deep-league value prior to this injury.

Juancho Hernangomez (abdominal strain) is listed as questionable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Jazz.
Hernangomez sat out on Saturday but has been playing through the injury for a couple weeks, so it's not surprising to see the Nuggets give him some time off with Will Barton and Gary Harris back. Juancho had put together a nice run earlier in the year but has faded substantially and can remain on the waiver wire in leagues with 14 teams or fewer.

Juancho Hernangomez (abdominal strain) will not be suiting up against the Cavs on Saturday.
Hernangomez has been playing through this injury for some time now and his playing time in the past month has been cut short to 16.5 minutes a game. Leave him on your waivers unless you're in a really deep league and in need of some rebounds.

Juan Hernangomez (abdominal strain) is questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Cavs.
With Will Barton and Gary Harris back in the lineup (hopefully for good), Hernangomez's minutes have been reduced from 26.6 over the last two months to just 16.5 over the last two weeks and his standard league value has evaporated in the process. It's best to leave him on waivers.

After Thursday's game, Juancho Hernangomez revealed that he's been playing through groin soreness.
Hernangomez logged 22 minutes against the Clippers tonight, posting two points, three rebounds and two blocks. He's averaging just 2.0 points per game in only 17.4 mpg in the last five, and while he didn't say exactly when he first sustained his injury it's fair to say that it's a big factor of his declining performance over the last couple of weeks. He's not currently a fantasy option outside of deep leagues but the Nuggets will continue to need him with Gary Harris and Will Barton on the shelf.

Juancho Hernangomez played nine minutes on Tuesday against the Heat.
Hernangomez's fantasy value is basically nil now that the Nuggets are getting back to full strength. Unless a window opens up, feel free to move on if you haven't already.

Juancho Hernangomez played just 16 minutes in Thursday's win over the Kings, posting five points, five rebounds and two assists.
The clock is ticking on Juancho and he might just be turning back into a pumpkin. He started again but he's getting squeezed from both sides, with Paul Millsap and Mason Plumlee eating up the power forward minutes and Torrey Craig (28 minutes tonight) and Gary Harris coming at him on the wings. He's floating towards the cut line and we wouldn't blame you for dipping into the waiver wire for a hot free agent.

Juancho Hernangomez scored eight points on 2-of-4 shooting (all threes) with two rebounds in a 20-minute start on Tuesday against the Knicks.
Hernangomez can be dropped now that the Nuggets are getting healthy and his production has dipped. The same goes for Mason Plumlee (eight points, seven boards, two steals, 24 minutes) and Torrey Craig (13 points) is about to see his minutes clipped, too.
December 30, 2018, 12:23 amJuancho Hernangomez - F - Denver Nuggets
Juancho Hernangomez scored 10 points on 3-of-3 shooting (including two threes) with nine rebounds, one assist and two steals over 35 minutes in Saturday's win over the Suns.
Hernangomez getting so many minutes and so few shots is a massive red flag as the Nuggets are getting healthy. Feel free to ride Hernangomez until the wheels fall off, but don't do it at the expense of a hot free agent. He deserves a tip of the cap for a job well done, nonetheless.

Juancho Hernangomez followed up Wednesday's 27-point bonanza with six points, four rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes of action on Friday.
Too bad. Hernangomez burst onto the scene amidst Denver's injuries but might have run out of gas, though the Nuggets aren't likely to be too heartbroken with Gary Harris, Will Barton and Paul Millsap all apparently close to returning. Even with this clunker (and three in his last five), Juancho is still worth owning in standard leagues.

Juancho Hernangomez put up 27 points with 13 rebounds in a team-high 36 minutes of action in a loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.
Hernangomez was 6-of-7 from 3-point range and 8-of-13 from the field. He added one assist and shot 5-of-6 from the line as well. Hernangomez has been top-80 over the past month and is worth owning in standard leagues.
December 22, 2018, 8:15 pmJuancho Hernangomez - F - Denver Nuggets
Juancho Hernangomez managed just eight points on 3-of-8 shooting (including a three), three rebounds and one block over 23 minutes in Saturday's blowout loss to the Clippers.
Hernangomez probably improves this a little bit if the game was close but he's not insulated from having duds in a secondary role, regardless. He's going to have a pair of three-game weeks before the upcoming five-gamer, and within that span there could be various player returns to threaten his value. For now, on a game-to-game basis he should be worth owning in standard leagues. Mason Plumlee (eight points, nine boards, four assists, two steals, 30 minutes) fits the same profile.
