Nuggets' Emmanuel Mudiay: Remains on fringe of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mudiay remains on the fringe of the Nuggets' rotation, having appeared in only five games in the month of March.

Mudiay limped into the All-Star break nursing a back injury, and his standing in coach Mike Malone's rotation never truly recovered, as he's appeared in only six games since the break. In those games, he's been relegated to mostly mop-up duty, averaging just 8.3 minutes, which he's translated to 4.2 points and 1.2 rebounds per game. With the Nuggets in the thick of the race for the eighth seed out West, Malone has been content to go with Jameer Nelson as the starting point guard, with rookie Jamal Murray coming on on relief. It's certainly a discouraging development for Mudiay, who struggled as a rookie but was considered a bounceback candidate in Year 2. For the season, Mudiay is averaging 10.8 points, 3.8 assists and 3.2 rebounds, but he's shooting just 37.1 percent from the field and an even uglier 31.1 percent from three.

Nuggets' Mason Plumlee: Leads team in scoring off bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plumlee scored 16 points (8-10 FG, 0-1 FT) to go along with six rebounds, one assist and one block in 19 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 115-90 loss to the Pelicans.

Plumlee came off the bench for the second straight game, but he enjoyed more success than any of his starting counterparts and actually led the team in scoring in limited minutes. He has been quite productive on a per-minute basis since his arrival in Denver, but the team's crowded rotation has put a cap on his potential for production on a nightly basis.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Plays just 18 minutes in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic scored just eight points (4-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt) while adding 13 rebounds and two assists across 18 minutes during Sunday's 115-90 loss to the Pelicans.

Jokic struggled a bit with foul trouble and knocked down just 29 percent of his attempts from the field, with his struggles helping contribute to a deficit that swelled to 28 after three quarters. He has been remarkably productive since assuming a featured role, albeit with the occasional dud such as this mixed in, so he should bounce back sooner rather than later as he looks to lead the Nuggets' charge toward a playoff berth with the regular season winding down.

Nuggets' Wilson Chandler: Shines in second game back with 24
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chandler tallied 24 points (10-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots over 35 minutes in Friday's 125-117 win over the Pacers.

Chandler seems to be humming on all cylinders in his second game post-injury. It will be interesting to see how they utilize Chandler, Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee moving forward, as both Faried and Plumlee have played well this season, and merit significant playing time. You'll most likely see Plumlee spell Jokic at the 5 and Faried will be the second unit's power forward while he shakes off effects from his recent injury. As long as Chandler keeps producing, his spot in the starting five is safe.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Torches Pacers with 30
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic recorded 30 points (12-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 17 rebounds, five assists and one steal across 34 minutes in Friday's 125-117 win over the Pacers.

It was just another ho-hum double-double for Jokic, his third in a week and his 32nd for the season. He shot a respectable 66 percent from the floor and had a perfect score from the charity stripe. While you can typically expect a lot of rebounds from Jokic, his 30-point performance on Wednesday was his third-highest scoring total of the season. Jokic is an elite start in all formats.
