Back problems have cropped up periodically for Lauvergne throughout the season, and it looks like the
Joffrey 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.
Joffrey 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.
Joffrey 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 Denver 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.
Joffrey 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.
