    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Gets double-double in win over Knicks

    Lauvergne compiled 12 points (5-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, and one block across 29 minutes in Sunday's win over the Knicks. Lauvergne ended up dominating the court time at center Sunday, playing more than starter Nikola Jokic (19 minutes) or fellow reserve Jusuf Nurkic (seven minutes). Coach Mike Malone has rarely been consistent with how he's doled out the playing time in the frontcourt this season, so Lauvergne can't necessarily be trusted to produce at this kind of level on a regular basis.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Healthy for Saturday's game, but doesn't play

    Lauvergne (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in Saturday's 109-105 overtime loss to the Pacers. Lauvergne was active and available off the bench after missing the last two games with an ailing toe, but coach Mike Malone was unwilling to turn to the big man in a closely contested matchup. It appears Malone is now comfortable with using Jusuf Nurkic (17 minutes) for more court time after Nurkic was recently bothered by knee and ankle issues, and that could ultimately result in Lauvergne losing out on his rotation spot as the backup center behind starter Nikola Jokic.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Expected to play Saturday

    Lauvergne (toe) is expected to play Saturday against the Pacers, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports. Lauvergne has missed the previous two games for Denver due to a toe injury. However, he was able to go through the team's shoootaround Saturday morning, and all signs point toward a return to action Saturday evening. It is rare when all of the Nuggets' regular frontcourt rotational players are active, but that appears to be the case for their matchup with the Pacers. Even though Lauvergne should be good to go, do not expect him to play much more than roughly 15 minutes unless some of his fellow big men run into foul trouble.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Ruled out Thursday

    Lauvergne (toe) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Washington, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports. Lauvergne will miss his second consecutive game Thursday as a result of a toe injury; however, coach Mike Malone said that all of the other nicked up Nuggets (Nikola Jokic, Darrell Arthur, Jameer Nelson) will be able to play against the Wizards. Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic figure to get most of the minutes at center when the Nuggets are not using smaller lineups during Thursday's tilt.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Questionable Thursday

    Lauvergne (toe) is considered questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Wizards, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports. Lauvergne was held out of Wednesday's loss to Boston, but he'll have a chance to return as the Nuggets head down to D.C. for the second game of a back-to-back set. With Nikola Jokic (knee) and Darrell Arthur (quad) also questionable, the Nuggets could end up being shorthanded in the frontcourt, should one or more of the three ultimately be ruled out.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Out for Wednesday's game

    Lauvergne (toe) will not play on Wednesday against the Celtics, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports. After being considered day-to-day, it has been confirmed that Lauvergne will not play in Wednesday's contest due to a toe injury. It's unclear how long he'll be out, but he should be considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Wizards. Look for Darrell Arthur, Nikola Jokic, and Jusuf Nurkic to see increased minutes while Lauvergne is out.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Game-time call Wednesday

    Lauvergne (toe) is considered a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Celtics, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports. The big man is dealing with what looks to be a minor toe injury, but little is known about the ailment as the Nuggets did not hold a morning shootaround. Lauvergne's status likely won't be known until later in the evening, and if he's ultimately held out, the likes of Darrell Arthur and Jusuf Nurkic could see increased minutes.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Nine points, eight boards in 28 minutes

    Lauvergne contributed nine points (3-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight boards, and three assists across 28 minutes before fouling out of Thursday's 102-101 loss to the Grizzlies. Though Jusuf Nurkic (knee, ankle) has been available for the last two games, he still appears to be shaking off some rust, and received only three minutes Thursday. That enabled Lauvergne to stick in the rotation as the backup center, and after getting off to good start early in Thursday's contest, he was actually able to double up starter Nikola Jokic (14 minutes) in playing time. Nurkic and Jokic should eventually take back the lion's share of the floor time at center, but while he's playing productively, Lauvergne may continue to log decent minutes for the time being. He's shot a perfect 9-for-9 from the floor over the last two games.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Scores 14 in loss Tuesday

    Lauvergne scored 14 points (7-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt) with seven rebounds, three assists, and a steal through 24 minutes in a 93-87 loss to the Cavaliers on Tuesday. Lauvergne continues to have a slight edge in court time over Nikola Jokic while regular starter Jusuf Nurkic is sidelined with a knee injury. Now averaging 13.7 points with 5.7 rebounds in his last three games, Lauvergne's stellar production may earn him an increased role in coach Mike Malone's rotation once Nurkic returns from injury.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Scores season-high 18 points

    Lauvergne scored a season-high 18 points (8-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added four rebounds and an assist across 31 minutes in Sunday's 122-112 loss to the Thunder. Lauvergne outperformed backup center Nikola Jokic in the outing, but by and large, Jokic has been the more consistent producer of the two, and should continue to see the larger share of minutes at the position until Jusuf Nurkic (knee) returns. That being said, coach Michael Malone's rotations have varied wildly this season, so there still could be a chance that Lauvergne ends up seeing more frequent run in subsequent contests.
