P.J. Dozier was outstanding in Friday's loss to the Raptors, logging a team-high 31 minutes and posting 20 points, five rebounds, eight assists, two steals and five 3-pointers.
Dozier was also highly efficient, going 6-of-9 from the field and committing just one turnover. He was able to impress in his time on the court in the bubble, though Dozier lost some of his playing time once Jamal Murray was able to return from his hamstring injury. He'll be a great insurance policy for the Nuggets, who have Monte Morris (30 minutes, 16-6-4 with two threes and a block in a strong performance) slotted in as Murray's primary backup. Denver sat their starters for the second half of today's game so there aren't any conclusions we can draw that will hold meaning for the immediate future.

P.J. Dozier led the Nuggets in scoring on Monday with 18 points while chipping in four rebounds, four assists, a block and two triples.
Dozier had another solid night off the bench and played more than any Nuggets player tonight, logging 27 minutes. He was a solid contributor across the board and should benefit from the Nuggets resting their starters down the stretch so scoop him up if he's available.

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.

Mike Malone deemed Jamal Murray (hamstring), Will Barton (knee) and Gary Harris (hip) "very questionable" for Monday's game.
That's not great news for a Nuggets team that is trying to hold onto the third seed in a competitive Western Conference. Their big concern is being healthy for the playoffs, of course, but this many absences will make it tough for Denver to get its act together during the seeding games. Monte Morris started on Saturday with Murray out, and PJ Dozier logged 16 minutes off the bench. Michael Porter Jr. was also elevated into the starting lineup but battled foul trouble and didn't do much with his opportunity. Torrey Craig should also get minutes if the Nuggets are without their top two wing options in Barton and Harris. Morris and Porter are the only two alternatives we'd feel comfortable with in fantasy lineups.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, PJ Dozier has arrived at the NBA's campus in Orlando, and his arrival represents the final member of the Nuggets' anticipated restart roster.
The Nuggets and coach Mike Malone have been forced to deploy some interesting lineups during the scrimmages leading up to the NBA restart on Thursday. Remarkably, most of their guards (and rookie forward Michael Porter Jr.) had issues getting to Disney World for one reason or another. Star center Nikola Jokic was the point guard in one of the games, but the team seems to be making it by the skin of their teeth. Malone recently noted that the scrimmages, in addition to being severely undermanned, were the only occasions in which the Nuggets were able to engage in five-on-five action. It would be fair to expect some rust out of the Nuggets as they restart their season on Saturday against the Heat.

PJ Dozier had a forgettable stint in Denver, with 21 mostly lackluster appearances, but will be at the end of the bench during the Nuggets' restart campaign on a full NBA deal.
Dozier played just 11.1 minutes per contest while shuttling back and forth between the NBA and the G-League. In 21 games, he scored 4.1 points and added 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists with minimal contributions elsewhere. The outlook for Dozier on this team are less than sunny unless there's an injury crisis in front of him. Otherwise, he'll be off fantasy radars as he was in this abbreviated stint outside the top-400.

The Nuggets are converting PJ Dozier's two-way contract into a full NBA deal, per Shams Charania.
Dozier has checked in for 21 appearances so far this season and will now occupy Denver's final roster spot. He might be someone for DFS players to know if the Nuggets end up resting some of their regulars when the short season resumes but that's about all there is to see from a fantasy perspective.

P.J. Dozier (right hip contusion) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers.
Dozier should see a few extra minutes with Michael Porter Jr. and Will Barton out for this one, but he doesn't carry much fantasy value at this time.

P.J. Dozier came off the bench for 21 minutes en-route to a career-high 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting while adding three rebounds and two assists to his name.
Dozier made the most of his time on the court with injuries to Gary Harris and Jamal Murray. However, we wouldn't be in a rush to grab him outside of deeper leagues at this point.

P.J. Dozier had a career-night on Wednesday with 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, two triples, four rebounds and two assists in 13 minutes.
Jamal Murray was carried off the court with an ankle injury so we expect to see Dozier ping on the ultra-deep fantasy radars. However, for shallower leagues, Monte Morris (four points, 1-of-4 shooting, one rebound, five assists) remains the preferred grab.

The Nuggets have recalled PG P.J. Dozier on Tuesday ahead of the team's upcoming back-to-back set.
With both Jamal Murray and Gary Harris ailing, the Nuggets opted to bring up more guard depth as the team gets ready for a back-to-back. The move is a likely indicator that at least one of Harris and Murray miss games.

The Nuggets transferred two-way player, P.J. Dozier, back to their G League affiliate on Friday.
Dozier has only averaged 8.5 minutes per game across six games so far this season and is not relevant from a fantasy perspective.

P.J. Dozier signed a two-way contract with the Nuggets on Friday.
After spending the two most recent seasons with the Celtics and Thunder, Dozier will get a chance to stick to a roster with the Nuggets. He has never earned a regular NBA opportunity and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

The Nuggets have waived Tyler Cook who signed a two-way contract earlier this offseason.
With Cook waived, the Nuggets now have one two-way contract available. They are likely to give this contract to a training camp invitee who has impressed. One name that has come up is P.J. Dozier. This transaction doesn't impact the fantasy landscape.

The Nuggets have signed G-League All-Star P.J. Dozier to a one-year contract.
Dozier has played for the Thunder and Celtics on two-way deals before signing with the Nuggets. He has only totalled 54 minutes across eight games in his career thus far. It is unclear at this point if this contract is another two-way deal or a full-time NBA contract. However, until Dozier gets meaningful playing time for a franchise, he has no fantasy relevance.
