News
Nelson compiled 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), six assists, four rebounds and five steals over 29 minutes in Thursday's 116-100 loss to the Kings.

The veteran point guard remained in the starting five to open the second half of the season, once again providing the solid, multi-category production that has come to define the majority of his starting tenure. Emmanuel Mudiay actually received a DNP-Coach's Decision on Thursday, leaving Nelson and rookie Jamal Murray to handle the point guard duties. While it remains to be seen how head coach Mike Malone chooses to deploy his backcourt rotation going forward, Nelson remains a viable option in all formats for the foreseeable future given his starting role.

Chandler posted 24 points (11-21 FG, 2-6 3Pt) with three rebounds, an assist and just one turnover across 29 minutes in Friday's 129-109 win against the Nets.

Chandler is averaging 21 points and 6.5 rebounds in two games since returning from a two-game absence due to illness. He is well again and fantasy owners can trust him in the active lineup in all formats.

Injuries
Back - Game Time Decision (Updated - 2/25/17)
News
Faried (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Grizzlies, Harrison Wind of BSNDevnver.com reports.

Faried injured his back in Friday's game against the nets after enduring an awkward fall that ultimately led to an early exit from the contest. He totaled nine point (3-4 FG, 3-4 FT) and six rebounds across 16 minutes prior to exiting. Darrell Arthur and Juan Hernangomez figure to see some extra time providing depth at power forward if Faried is unable to go, but a decision is unlikely to be made until closer to game-time.

News
Arthur failed to score (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and added three steals, two rebounds and one assist across 13 minutes in a 129-109 win over the Nets on Friday.

Though he was dealing with an illness heading into the Nuggets' back-to-back set, Arthur was cleared to play in both contests, but he failed to see the floor in Thursday's loss to the Kings. With the Nuggets rolling to an easy win Friday, coach Michael Malone was able to empty the bench and get Arthur some run, but the forward failed to do much during his time on the court. Arthur may have a better chance at claiming some extra minutes Sunday against the Grizzlies if Kenneth Faried's back injury forces him to sit out.

Gallinari (groin) supplied 15 points (5-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one steal over 30 minutes in Thursday's 116-100 loss to the Kings.

Gallinari was solid overall in his first game since Feb. 1, posting double-digit scoring for the 26th consecutive contest in the process. Now that he's back at full health and remained put at the trade deadline, the Nuggets figure to continue deploying the effective 1-2 punch that his Gallinari and Wilson Chandler at small forward.

Barton poured in 16 points (7-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and added five assists, two rebounds and one block over 32 minutes in Thursday's 116-100 loss to the Kings.

Barton picked up where he left off before the All-Star break, tallying his seventh straight double-digit scoring effort and shooting at least 46 percent for the third consecutive contest. With recent injuries to Danilo Gallinari (groin), Emmanuel Mudiay (back) and Wilson Chandler (illness), Barton has thrived during February, averaging 16.4 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists across 32.6 minutes in nine contests, with all three figures representing his best in any full month this season.

Plumlee finished with 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds and eight assists with just one turnover across 23 minutes in Friday's 129-109 win against the Nets.

Plumlee has acclimated nicely with his new teammates, averaging 11.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists in his three games of action with the Nuggets. Fantasy owners searching for a cheap source of rebounds in seasonal rotisserie formats will wants to look Plumlee's way. He is also an excellent low-cost DFS play.

Harris finished with a career-high 25 points (9-15 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with two rebounds, an assist and a steal over 27 minutes in Friday's 129-109 win against the Nets.

Harris has been on quite the roll lately, averaging 23.3 points per game over his past three outings while hitting at least three triples in each of his past six games. He is healthy and that is helping him finally reach his immense potential. The Michigan State product has double-digit point totals in eight straight outings and has emerged as a must-have fantasy option in most formats.

News
Jokic provided only four points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and added 10 rebounds and two assists over 26 minutes in Thursday's 116-100 loss to the Kings.

It was a highly disappointing performance overall for Jokic, who turned in his lowest scoring total since Dec. 23. The second-year big man put up his least amount of shots since that contest as well, and only salvaged the night for fantasy owners by posting his fourth straight double-digit rebound game. Given his stellar track record since joining the starting five on permanent basis, Jokic's forgettable night can be safely chalked up as an outlier that he's likely to bounce back from Friday against the Nets.

News
Mudiay (back) returned to action Friday against the Nets finishing with two points (0-1 FG, 2-2 FT) with an assist, a blocked and a steal in just five minutes of play.

Mudiay was expected to come off the bench in Thursday's game against the Kings but never got into the game. The second-year point guard is finally recovered after a three-week bout with back spasms, but fantasy owners will want to see him play a lot more than five minutes before plugging him back into the active lineup.

Murray posted nine points (3-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with two rebounds, an assist and a steal across 26 minutes in Friday's 129-109 win against the Nets.

The MVP of the Rising Stars Challenge struggled with his shot while playing extended minutes in the blowout victory. With Gary Harris shooting the ball well and playing well at the two, Murray's fantasy ceiling is rather limited in the Mile High City.
