Nuggets' Kenneth Faried: Ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faried (back) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Bulls, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Faried will be missing his second game in a row after he sustained his back injury during Friday's win over the Nets. Wilson Chandler started in Faried's place Saturday and likely will once again. Looking ahead, Faried's next chance to play will be on Wednesday against the Bucks.

Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari: Scores team-high 24 in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallinari scored 24 points (6-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 10-11 FT) while adding four rebounds, two steals and an assist in 35 minutes during Sunday's 105-98 loss to the Grizzlies.

He's looked good in three games since returning from a groin injury, averaging 19.7 points, 6.0 boards, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.0 steals. Staying healthy is always an issue for Gallinari -- he's played more than 59 games just once in the last five seasons -- but if he can avoid his usual strains and sprains, he should be productive down the stretch for a Nuggets squad that doesn't have many other scoring options.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Double-double in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic scored 10 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt) while adding 11 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block in 33 minutes during Sunday's 105-98 loss to the Grizzlies.

The second-year center is struggling at the offensive end of the court right now, scoring only 16 points combined over his last three games, but Jokic has still grabbed double-digit boards in six of his last eight contests while averaging 16.6 points, 12.3 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 0.9 blocks and 0.9 steals over that stretch.

Nuggets' Wilson Chandler: Will start at power forward Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Chandler will start at power forward in Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Kenneth Faried is sitting out Sunday with a back injury, so the Nuggets will promote Chandler to the top unit after he came off the bench for the first two games out of the All-Star break. Chandler is no stranger to the starting five, having already logged 19 starts already this season. He had already been seeing a sizable allotment of playing time off the bench, but look for the 29-year-old to potentially surpass the 30-minute Sunday with Faried out of the picture.

Nuggets' Roy Hibbert: Will make debut with Nuggets on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hibbert will be active and available to play on Sunday versus the Grizzlies, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

Hibbert was dealt from the Bucks to the Nuggets just prior to the trade deadline, but was held out Friday, as the team opted to give him some extra time to get settled in. However, Hibbert is fully expected to be available Sunday and should operate as the Nuggets third option at center. With Nikola Jokic and Mason Plumlee ahead of him on the depth chart, Hibbert will likely play just a minor role off the bench in Denver.
