Mason Plumlee

  • PJ Dozier
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    P.J. Dozier was solid off the Nuggets' bench on Thursday night, chipping in 13 points (5-of-11 shooting) with four rebounds, four dimes and two 3s in 22 minutes.

    Dozier got some extra run tonight with the Nuggets missing Jamal Murray (hamstring), Will Barton (knee) and Gary Harris (hip). Consider him as a short-term add. Fellow reserve, Mason Plumlee also played well this evening, recording 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds, five assists and one steal, leading all reserves in minutes with 27.

    Mason Plumlee double-doubled with 18 points and 13 rebounds in 33 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Plumlee shot 5-of-9 from the field and 8-of-11 from the free throw line. He saw extra minutes with Paul Millsap missing time because he missed a daily COVID test. Plumlee is a fine backup center, but he doesn't move the needle in fantasy basketball.

    Mason Plumlee slogged his way to an unimpressive 2019-20 season, finishing well outside the top-250 in 9-category formats and averaging 7.2 points and 5.3 rebounds without much else worth noting.

    On top of unexciting popcorn numbers, Plumlee shot an abysmal 53.6% from the charity stripe. He was a volume play only who didn't really provide anything exciting in limited minutes. Playing behind Nikola Jokic was always going to limit Plumlee's production and keep him even out of streaming range.

    Nuggets coach Mike Malone said that Nikola Jokic "feels great" after suffering from the coronavirus and is expected to join the team in Orlando.

    It was reported in late June that Jokic tested positive for COVID-19. However, he was said to be feeling fine and could potentially play in games when they resume. The center has averaged 20.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 1.2 steals in 2019-20. Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee would see more playing time if Jokic is held out of action.

    Mason Plumlee was very productive in limited action on Tuesday, putting up 16 points, nine rebounds and two assists in just 14 minutes

    Plumlee hadn't reached double-digit points since January 19th and has been irrelevant in fantasy formats for the entirety of 2020. He simply got hot tonight and should be left on the wire.

    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
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    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
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    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
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    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.
