    Neither Paul Millsap (right calf tightness) nor Malik Beasley (right quad contusion) will play against the Suns on Monday night.

    Though neither Millsap nor Beasley have been playing small forward, this should open up a few minutes for the Nuggets' four small forward options as most can slide over to the two or four.

    Malik Beasley (right quad contusion) is questionable for Monday's preseason matchup with the Suns.

    If Beasley can't go it should lead to more minutes for Will Barton and Torrey Craig, which means some potential value for DFS players.

    The Nuggets are engaged in talks with shooting guard Malik Beasley on a contract extension, according to Mike Singer of the Denver Post.

    Beasley appeared in 81 games and averaged a career-high 11.2 points last season, an increase of more than eight points a game from 2017-18, while also shooting a career-best 81 percent on free throws and 40 percent on 3-pointers. He is represented by agent Rich Paul and Klutch Sports while Bobby Marks of ESPN reported last week that his camp turned down a three-year extension offer worth $30 million so a deal is not imminent.

  • Torrey Craig

    The Nuggets have an open spot in the starting lineup up for grabs and Juancho Hernangómez and Torrey Craig are among the top candidates.

    With Will Barton (undisclosed) not participating in full-contact, the Nuggets may look to either Craig or Hernangómez to take over the starting role. It is surprising to not see Malik Beasley's name come up as well after a solid season in which he started 18 games. Whoever ends up winning the job should be moved up fantasy boards but with the amount of mouths the Nuggets will need to feed, it is hard to see any of them sustaining top-100 value.

    The Nuggets want to extend Malik Beasley and Juan Hernagomez before the October 21 deadline.

    The Nuggets already locked up one of their 2016 first-round picks (Jamal Murray) to a long-term deal and now want to do the same with their other two 2016 first-round picks, Hernangomez and Beasley. If not, the two will likely become restricted free-agents at the end of the season. Both players saw stretches of big minutes last season due to injuries but at full health, Beasley was around 20 minutes per game while Hernangomez was at around 10. Fantasy wise, neither player puts up big defensive stats but Beasley is a very efficient shooter with low turnovers, knocking down 2.0 triples per game last year, putting him near top-150 value at only 23.2 minutes per game. Hernangomez is a decent rebounder and knocked down 0.9 triples per game but he would need closer to 30 minutes per game to be a factor in standard leagues.

    Malik Beasley started the second half for Torrey Craig (nose) and put up 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting in 27 minutes of action in a loss to the Blazers in Game 2 on Wednesday.

    Craig did eventually return to the game, but Beasley played well and provided some much-needed hustle for the Nuggets. He grabbed two offensive rebounds; one of those rebounds came late in the fourth quarter as he soared over Enes Kanter to save the possession. He had a similar game overall to start Gary Harris, who had 12 points and three rebounds on 4-of-12 shooting. The backcourt squad of Jamal Murray, Harris, Beasley, and Monte Morris will have to shoot better than 15-of-49 from the field and 4-of-22 from beyond the arc for the Nuggets to win basketball games. Look for them to bounce back in Game 3 on Friday.

    Malik Beasley will replace Torrey Craig (nose) in the starting lineup for the 2nd half of Game 2 on Wednesday.

    This doesn't bode well for Craig's chances of making it back onto the floor for this game. The Nuggets will need Beasley to hold his own on defense and maybe get some scoring going as well if they are to climb back into this one.

    Malik Beasley provided a spark when the Nuggets needed it in the second half of Tuesday's Game 2 against the Spurs as he knocked down a pair of threes on his way to eight points, three rebounds and three assists.

    Beasley was one of the few to get some jumpers to go, and it was contagious in the third and fourth quarters. He played 23 minutes, taking most of Will Barton's (1-10 for three points) minutes down the stretch. Also helpful off the bench was Monte Morris with 11 points and six assists in 24 minutes.

    Malik Beasley had a forgettable line Wednesday as he scored seven points on 3-of-10 shooting with two boards while missing six of his seven treys.

    Malik Beasley has turned in a solid season off the bench for the second best team in the Western Conference by record. He almost cracked the top-150 (157) in 9-cat leagues while falling well short in 8-cat (188). If given a larger role next season, Beasley could be a sleeper as he would be a good fit for all teams in the modern NBA with his shooting ability and defensive versatility on the wings. His draft stock will be determined based on his role heading into next season.

    Monte Morris and Malik Beasley combined for 47 points on Tuesday, just one more than what Donovan Mitchell single-handedly posted by his lonesome.

    The ugly loss to the Jazz forced Denver to turn to its bench and as usual, both Morris and Beasley did not disappoint. Beasley had a team-high 25 points on 9-of-13 shooting (five 3s), one assist, two steals and one block. Morris chipped in 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting (two 3s) with three rebounds, four dimes and one steal. This has been the Denver storyline in spots this season, both of these role-players rose up to the challenge on many occasions and delivered.

    Malik Beasley returned from a one-game personal absence on Thursday night but struggled, going 1-of-9 from the field for four points in 23 minutes.

    Beasley's become a key part of the rotation this year but didn't have it tonight. If it's a consolation, most of his teammates didn't either.

    Malik Beasley (personal) will be ready to take the court on Thursday as the Nuggets face the Rockets in a Western Conference battle.

    Beasley has officially been listed as available going into tonight's matchup against the Rockets. With the Nuggets having such a crowded rotation on the wing, Beasley is a fringe player.

    Malik Beasley (personal) is questionable to face the Rockets on Thursday.

    If Beasley is forced to miss another game it will leave more minutes for Will Barton, Gary Harris, Monte Morris and Torrey Craig, while the latter two should get some more shot opportunities off the bench.

    Malik Beasley (personal) will not play on Tuesday against the Pistons.

    It'll leave more minutes available for Gary Harris, Will Barton and Torrey Craig. Denver's return to full health has limited Beasley's appeal anyway, so this shouldn't result in too much change from the recent production of the wing group.
