    Mason Plumlee (right foot) will be available for Friday's game.

    Plumlee will be returning from a 12-game absence after suffering a cuboid injury. He should resume his role as the backup center but is only a consideration in deeper formats, especially now that Jerami Grant and Michael Porter Jr. have found enough of a rhythm that the Nuggets can go smaller in their bench lineups.

    Mason Plumlee (right foot injury) was able to participate in most of Wednesday's practice session.

    Plumlee went down in late January and was set to miss 2-4 weeks, so a return should be coming soon. The Nuggets have rolled with smaller groups while Plumlee has been shelved, though he was a defensive anchor for the second unit when healthy. Expect his return to eat away at the workloads of Jerami Grant and Michael Porter Jr.

    Mason Plumlee is expected to miss two weeks to a month with a right foot injury.

    This comes out of nowhere while the Nuggets are already without Paul Milsap. Jerami Grant and Michael Porter Jr. are the next men up and they deserve consideration for the foreseeable future.

    Mason Plumlee (right cuboid) has been ruled out for Wednesday's tilt against the Rockets.

    Plumlee's absence stings as the Nuggets are already without Paul Millsap (left knee contusion). This means Jerami Grant will see all the frontcourt minutes he can handle, making him an attractive DFS play.

    Mason Plumlee (ankle) returned to Monday's game against the Wolves after exiting with an ankle injury, and he finished with six points (3-of-4 shooting) and four rebounds in 10 minutes.

    Plumlee has been on one of his hot streaks lately, so it's great to see that he was able to make it back into the game tonight. He's always a good bet if you need rebounds, assists and field goal percentage for a game or two.

    Mason Plumlee (right ankle injury) is questionable to return vs. the Wolves on Monday.

    Plumlee played just four first-half minutes before exiting with the ailment. The Nuggets should provide an update shortly.

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    Millsap will miss his sixth consecutive game and being ruled out a full day in advance is not a good sign. He is a hold if you can afford it with top-100 numbers on the season but it is becoming increasingly difficult and he will surely be missing additional games further along in the season even once he is cleared from the current injury so a drop is not out of the question. Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee will continue picking up the slack in his absence.

    Mason Plumlee scored 15 points on 4-of-7 shooting with 15 boards, four dimes, one steal and two blocks on Thursday.

    Plumlee logged the same amount of minutes (27) as starter Jerami Grant (27 minutes, six points, four boards, two assists and two steals) and outplayed him on both ends of the floor. Grant couldn't capitalize with Paul Milsap sitting and it's unlikely that he'll be the top-100 guy he was in OKC last season anytime soon. He still has potential to reach that point, but it's just not now.

    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.

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) returned to the lineup on Tuesday night and was able to put up 13 points, nine rebounds, three assists, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer in 27 minutes of action.

    Millsap had missed the previous two games but didn't look any worse for wear tonight and should be plugged back into your fantasy lineups if he'd typically be in there. Mason Plumlee, who had been starting, logged only 12 minutes off the bench against a smaller Rockets squad.

    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.

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

    Millsap missed games on Saturday and Sunday. Mason Plumlee has delivered nicely in his absence. Millsap's overall numbers are down from his career averages, but most of that is related to his 24.9 minutes per game.

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) is being considered questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

    He missed Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies and now he's in danger of missing this one too. He's outside of the top 100 over the past two weeks but he's still worth owning as of right now. Mason Plumlee will likely get the start if he misses time again. Stay tuned for updates.

    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.
