    Paul Millsap scored 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting with 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block over 31 minutes in Wednesday's home win over the Kings.

    Millsap hit 1-of-2 from deep and 4-of-5 from the line, and aside from roasting Marvin Bagley he found himself in the right places at the right time for a big night. If your trading deadline hasn't passed, this is a big sell-high moment.

    Paul Millsap (right ankle soreness) returned from a three-game absence in Monday's win over the Heat, coming off the bench and posting nine points, 10 rebounds, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer in 20 minutes of action.

    Millsap didn't start but had one of his better games over the last few weeks. He's still a top-100 player on the season but has been outside the top-150 over the last couple of months, so a return to form should be expected. Millsap isn't the fantasy force he used to be but is worth holding onto in most situations. You can make a move if there's a can't-miss free agent available or if you need immediate production, but Millsap should get it figured out soon enough.

    Paul Millsap (right ankle soreness) will come off the bench in Monday's game against the Heat.

    Millsap has missed the last three games and will probably play fewer minutes than usual tonight, though he's only playing 25.7 minutes per game this season and is a shade below that mark since 2019 began. Mason Plumlee will make another start and is fine to deploy in lineups if you'd usually have him in there.

    Paul Millsap (right ankle soreness) will return from a three-game absence to play against the Heat on Monday.

    Millsap has been struggling over the last several weeks and hasn't been a top-150 option over the previous two months, so while it'll be good for fantasy owners to have him back in the lineup it isn't a situation where he needs to be plugged in immediately. He's likely to have some sort of minutes restriction, which will be easier to work with for Denver with Mason Plumlee and Trey Lyles playing so well of late.

    Paul Millsap (right ankle soreness) is being listed as questionable vs. the Heat on Monday.

    The Nuggets are going up against a Heat team that just went toe-to-toe with the Warriors and they're undoubtedly tired. Millsap has missed the past three games and he barely practiced on Sunday so he might be on the worse side of questionable. Trey Lyles and Mason Plumlee will continue to pick up the slack in his absence.

    Paul Millsap (right ankle soreness) was a "very limited" participant in Sunday's 5-on-5 work.

    Millsap has missed the last three games and this doesn't bode well for him returning in the next one. He's been below the 12-team cut line over the last two months and it might be time for fantasy owners to consider moving on, especially if they're on the playoff bubble. Mason Plumlee and Trey Lyles will split the PF minutes until Millsap is out.

    Paul Millsap (right ankle soreness) will not play on Friday vs. the Sixers.

    Millsap will miss his third straight game and he’s been trending down lately, only pulling in top-180 value in 9-cat over the last two months. With Denver stacked with options and Millsap past his athletic peak, we wouldn’t be mad if you dropped him to move on a hot free agent.

    Paul Millsap (right ankle sprain) is listed as questionable ahead of Friday's game against the Sixers.

    Millsap missed the previous two games, but now has a chance to return in this one. The Nuggets could use him coming back in a tough matchup with the Sixers, after giving up 135 points to the Nets. If he cannot go, Mason Plumlee will start again and is the fantasy player you want in this situation. Trey Lyles makes for a decent cheap-DFS option if you really need it.

    Paul Millsap (right ankle soreness) will miss his second straight game on Wednesday.

    Mason Plumlee figures to start again, though Brooklyn's smaller roster might lead to more work for Trey Lyles, Torrey Craig and Juancho Hernangomez. We wouldn't feel super comfortable rolling with anyone besides Plumlee, but you could twist our arm into being fine with Lyles while Millsap is out.

    The Nuggets are listing Paul Millsap (right ankle soreness) as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

    Millsap was unable to play on Monday night, which allowed Mason Plumlee to start and Trey Lyles to have a productive game off the bench in Detroit. It's possible that the Nuggets switch things up against a smaller opponent in Brooklyn, so we could see guys like Torrey Craig and Juancho Hernangomez in for a little more work than usual if Millsap sits.

    Paul Millsap (right ankle soreness) will not play in Monday's game against the Pistons.

    Millsap was added to the injury report this morning and while he's been disappointing from a fantasy perspective this year, the Nuggets will miss him against Blake Griffin. Mason Plumlee and Trey Lyles are both in play for DFS tonight, with Plumlee the preferred option.

    Paul Millsap (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Pistons.

    Millsap was added to the injury report this morning after finally seeing some consistency over the last few games. Look for Trey Lyles and Mason Plumlee to see the biggest boost if Millsap were forced to sit. Plumlee could draw the start alongside of Nikola Jokic to matchup against Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin's size.

    Paul Millsap managed just three rebounds and two assists over 21 minutes in Saturday's win over the Wolves.

    Millsap missed his only two shot attempts and he has been pretty rough lately, so we'll be watching out for news of an injury. As long as he's relatively healthy, he's at least a late-round value.

    Paul Millsap struggled again on Monday, scoring four points on 0-for-5 shooting with five rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block.

    The defensive numbers were nice, but everything else was awful from Millsap tonight. He looked outmatched against Jaren Jackson Jr. and the rest of the swarming Grizzlies defense. He's definitely lost a step as he's turning 34 in a few weeks, but his game is still fantasy friendly enough to warrant being held onto in standard leagues. Owners will just have to ride out the rough storms like tonight for his blocks (0.8) and steals (1.3).

  • Paul Millsap - F - Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap logged only 17 minutes on Saturday night, giving fantasy owners four points and four rebounds.

    A matchup with the Sixers sans Joel Embiid should've been more fun, but Millsap just didn't get it going and lost most of his minutes to Mason Plumlee. Plum Dog was excellent with 17-6-4 and a block in 22 minutes tonight, and it's good to see him keep the good times rolling even with Nikola Jokic back in action. Millsap remains a player who should be rostered in all 12-team leagues but he's not the lineup lock he used to be. That's now 2, 20 and 4 points over his last three.
