    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) is being ruled out against the Wolves on Monday.

    Millsap will miss a seventh consecutive game as he nurses the injury, and there isn't a definite return date for the big man. Millsap has top-100/110 per-game value on the season, but his continued absence hasn't helped matters. He is a hold if you can afford it, but not every owner has that luxury, and if you are fighting for wins, he is a guy to consider dropping for a hot pickup. Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee will continue to benefit from Millsap's absence.

    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.

    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray (left ankle sprain), Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) and Gary Harris (right adductor strain) will all sit out Thursday's game against the Warriors.

    The Nuggets will be down three starters, though they do draw a winnable matchup in Golden State. Murray needed to be helped off the court last night and could be looking at an extended absence, while Millsap has been battling knee issues on and off for most of the year. Harris has missed the last two games with his groin issue. Pretty much everyone on the Nuggets is going to have to step up, with Monte Morris and Malik Beasley the big backcourt winners while Jerami Grant, Michael Porter Jr. and PJ Dozier stick out among the forwards. Knock yourself out in DFS tonight.

    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) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Clippers.

    Millsap is set to miss his third straight game. His next chance to take the court would be Wednesday versus the Hornets. Jerami Grant should draw another start and becomes a viable DFS option.

    Paul Millsap will not partake in Saturday's contest against the Cavs due to his ongoing struggle with a left knee contusion.

    This will be Millsap's second straight game missed and he will now have missed four out of the last eight games that the Nuggets have played due to this injury. Primary replacement targets include Jerami Grant and Michael Porter Jr., with Porter being the riskier play that offers juicy upside. If you are seeking defensive stats Grant is your man. Millsap is no longer worth holding in standard leagues as he offers such limited upside when healthy.

    Paul Millsap (knee contusion) is being listed as probable to play against the Mavs on Wednesday.

    The soon-to-be 35-year-old forward is quietly putting up top-100/110 per-game value in 9/8 cat leagues as he continues to be an underrated fantasy asset. Owners can feel comfortable plugging him into lineups.

  • Gary Harris
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris had a tough night on Monday, shooting just 2-for-12 from the floor as part of a four-point, three-rebound, one-assist game in 36 minutes against the Hawks.

    Harris hasn't bounced back this season as well as many expected. He's worth keeping around if you need steals, but if you need a spot to stream, you probably won't miss Harris too much. Paul Millsap was also nearly invisible with two points (0-of-3 FGs), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes.

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) is available for Monday's game.

    Millsap was previously listed as probable. He has only averaged 11 points and six rebounds over his last ten games, but that's mostly a factor of his cautious deployment.

    Paul Millsap (left knee contusion) is probable for Monday's matchup with the Hawks.

    Millsap returned from a two-game absence (same injury) last week and has played 27, 27 and 22 minutes since then, but it sounds like he'll still be able to play. The diversity of MIllsap's production remains strong but the playing time has him looking like a late-round guy.

    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.
