    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Expected to sit Wednesday

    Lauvergne (back) is not expected to play Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports. Lauvergne is apparently dealing with some soreness in his back, and with nothing but lottery position to play for Wednesday the Nuggets will likely hold him out. Darrell Arthur (knee) is also not expected to play, so Denver may be slightly shorthanded up front.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Notches double-double in loss to OKC

    Lauvergne scored 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-2 FT) to go with 10 rebounds and three assists over 28 minutes in a 124-102 loss to the Thunder on Tuesday. Lauvergne has now been able to score in double-digits in three of his last four contests. While Lauvergne's minute totals have been erratic this season, the big man has now averaged 20.9 minutes over his last seven games. If coach Mike Malone continues giving Lauvergne minutes over Jusuf Nurkic and Nikola Jokic, he could provide DFS value in the final three games of Denver's season.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Registers 15 points off bench in Saturday defeat

    Lauvergne registered 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists over 24 minutes in Saturday's 115-106 loss to the Kings. The big man produced double-digit points for the third time in the last six contests, as he continues to receive a modest but relatively consistent allotment of playing time in the frontcourt rotation. Lauvergne was particularly active on offense Saturday, taking his most shot attempts since tallying 14 against this same Kings squad back on Feb. 19. The second-year pro could prove to be a decent source of points and rebounds for the balance of the season if he continues in the same role.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Puts up 16 points off bench

    Lauvergne tallied 16 points (6-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six boards, an assist, and a block over 30 minutes in Thursday's 116-98 loss to the Hawks. The absence of Kenneth Faried (back) and the early struggles of the Nuggets' starting lineup Thursday afforded more run than usual for Lauvergne, who put up his most points since dropping 22 on the Kings back on Feb. 19. The Frenchman has now logged three double-digit scoring efforts in a row while going a respectable 16-for-24 from the field during that span. His recent successes could allow him to get the starting nod at power forward over Darrell Arthur on Saturday against the Hornets in the event Faried is sidelined again.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Scores 12 points Wednesday

    Lauvergne put up 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), eight rebounds, and an assist over 23 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Magic. Lauvergne has notched double-digit points in back-to-back games, and seems to have vaulted back ahead of Jusuf Nurkic for backup center duties behind starter Nikola Jokic. While he should claim around 15-to-20 minutes most nights, Lauvergne's consistency still leaves a lot to be desired. Prior to his minor scoring burst the last two games, Lauvergne had accumulated 12 total points in the preceding four contests.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Available to play Monday

    Lauvergne (face) will be available to participate in Monday's matchup with the Heat, Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post reports. Lauvergne was questionable heading into Monday after missing the team's morning shootaround. He was being fitted for a protective mask after injuring his cheekbone. However, the Nuggets have indicated he is ready and available. The Nuggets will have all of their rotational frontcourt players available, so look for Lauvergne to grab his normal minute workload.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Game-time decision Monday

    Lauvergne (face) is listed as a game-time decision with a cheekbone bruise for Monday's game against the Heat, Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post reports. Lauvergne was not at shootaround as he was getting fitted for a protective mask and with Jusuf Nurkic (knee) also listed as a game-time decision, there would be plenty of frontcourt minutes up for grabs should either player miss Monday's game. Darrell Arthur would be the most likely candidate to see more time on the floor, as the Nuggets would be forced to play small at times.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Scores 11 points Monday

    Lauvergne totaled 11 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, and two assists across 19 minutes during the Nuggets' 103-96 loss to the Grizzlies on Monday. Lauvergne finished February with a monthly average of 6.8 points on 53 percent from the field to go with 3.8 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.2 blocks, and 0.1 steals in 16 minutes per game. During December, Lauvergne recorded 10 points and 6.3 rebounds per game across 20 minutes per contest, but he has seen closer to 15 minutes per appearance in every other month over the course of this season. As a result, the 24-year-old center is best reserved for use in deeper leagues.

    Nuggets' Joffrey Lauvergne: Posts career-high 22 points in Friday defeat

    Lauvergne posted a career-high 22 points (10-14 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, an assist and a block over 25 minutes in Friday's 116-110 loss to the Kings. The second-year big man had shown flashes earlier in the season while receiving a solid allotment of minutes during Kenneth Faried's absence, but Friday's outing was his most efficient by far. It was notably the third game in the last four that Lauvergne received over 20 minutes on the floor, a sign that coach Mike Malone may be warming to the idea of unleashing the 24-year-old over the second part of the season to further his development. Lauvergne seems to offer a higher ceiling than fellow reserve Darrell Arthur, and his usage will be something for fantasy owners to monitor over the course of the next few games.

    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.
