Plumlee went for zero points (0-4 FG), three assists, two rebounds and one block during a 122-113 loss to the Trail Blazers on Tuesday. Plumlee had his worst game of the season as he matched up against his former team. Tuesday's game marked the first time all season he has gone scoreless. Plumlee has failed to exceed 19 minutes in the last three games, so owners should feel free to look long and hard at moving on from him at this point.
Plumlee scored 16 points (8-10 FG, 0-1 FT) to go along with six rebounds, one assist and one block in 19 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 115-90 loss to the Pelicans. Plumlee came off the bench for the second straight game, but he enjoyed more success than any of his starting counterparts and actually led the team in scoring in limited minutes. He has been quite productive on a per-minute basis since his arrival in Denver, but the team's crowded rotation has put a cap on his potential for production on a nightly basis.
Plumlee tallied nine points (3-5 FG, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals over 32 minutes in Saturday's 109-105 loss to the Rockets. Plumlee got the starting nod again Saturday and provided solid returns for the third straight game. He narrowly missed his third consecutive double-double and notably continued to start over Kenneth Faried and alongside Nikola Jokic. Given Plumlee's strong multi-category production recently, it remains to be seen if coach Mike Malone will opt to keep him and Jokic on the floor simultaneously for the balance of the campaign.
Plumlee provided 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists and three blocks over 30 minutes in Thursday's 129-114 win over the Clippers. The big man got the start at power forward with Darrell Arthur sitting for rest for a second straight game, Wilson Chandler (groin) sidelined and Kenneth Faried (back) coming off the bench in his return from an extended absence. Plumlee responded with his second consecutive double-double effort and fourth overall in the last six games. The 27-year-old has proven capable of forming an effective frontcourt tandem with Nikola Jokic, providing coach Mike Malone with some solid personnel options when Chandler is healthy and available as well.
Plumlee finished with 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 FT) with 10 rebounds, two assists, two blocked shots and a steal over 36 minutes in Monday's 129-101 win against the Lakers. Plumlee has managed three double-doubles over his past five outings, averaging 12.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.4 blocked shots per game. He has found a home in the Mile High City and whether he is coming off the bench or is starting he has emerged as a decent depth player in most seasonal fantasy formats.
