Nuggets F Joffrey Lauvergne notches double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Denver Nuggets forward Joffrey Lauvergne made the start at center in Tuesday's preseason win over the Dallas Mavericks , finishing the evening with 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt) and 12 rebounds.

The 2013 second-round pick entered training camp with rather modest expectations, but he's taken full advantage of Jusuf Nurkic 's (knee) expected absence to open the season. After notching 16 points on 7-for-10 shooting to go along with 11 boards in the preseason opener, Lauvergne replaced J.J. Hickson in the starting lineup Tuesday and rattled off another double-double in impressive fashion.

Preseason numbers should usually be taken with a grain of salt, but Lauvergne's production relative to his competition (Hickson and Nikola Jokic ) is becoming too sizable to ignore. Continue to monitor the Nuggets' preseason contests to see how the job battle shakes out, but at this juncture, Lauvergne looks like he could be a worthy end-game target for those in deeper leagues.

Nuggets PG Jameer Nelson scores 12 points in preseason win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Denver Nuggets point guard Jameer Nelson recorded 12 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and dropped two dimes in Tuesday's preseason win over the Dallas Mavericks .

As anticipated, the Nuggets announced earlier in the week that Emmanuel Mudiay would serve as the team's starting point guard, leaving Nelson to serve in a backup role this season while functioning as a veteran mentor for the rookie. Nelson will likely make a push for around 20 minutes a night early in the season, but if Mudiay thrives to the extent the Nuggets believe he can, Nelson figures to see his role diminish as the weeks and months pass.

Nuggets PG Emmanuel Mudiay dominates in preseason win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Denver Nuggets rookie point guard Emmanuel Mudiay scored 17 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and dished out five assists while playing 31 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Dallas Mavericks .

With coach Mike Malone and GM Tim Connelly endorsing Mudiay as their starter at point guard, the 19-year-old immediately becomes a leading contender for Rookie of the Year honors. Mudiay will likely have his moments of inefficient shooting and recklessness (he had seven turnovers Tuesday), but since the ball will frequently be in his hands, he should have ample opportunity to pile up counting stats for fantasy owners.

Nuggets guard Gary Harris scores 12 points Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris started at shooting guard in Tuesday's exhibition win over the Dallas Mavericks , scoring 12 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and pitching in with a rebound, steal, and assist.

The Nuggets deployed both Harris and rookie first-rounder Emmanuel Mudiay in starting roles, with both young players logging 30-plus minutes on the evening. Mudiay seems fairly solidified in the lineup following the offseason trade of Ty Lawson , but Harris will need to prove in training camp and the preseason that he's a more capable shooting guard option than either Randy Foye or Wilson Chandler .

Harris has flashed some ability at both ends of the court during his brief tenure with the Nuggets and boasts more upside than either of his competitors, but the veteran savvy of Foye and Chandler may be enough to keep the second-year guard waiting for a full-time starting role.

Nuggets PF Kenneth Faried nets double-double in Tuesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried recorded a double-double in Tuesday's preseason win over the Dallas Mavericks , finishing with 10 points and 10 boards.

Faried missed some practice time last week due to a case of muscle cramps, but he's been on the court for both of the Nuggets' preseason contests.

The 25-year-old showcased some real growth in the second half of last season, averaging 9.2 rebounds, 1.1 steals, one block, and 14.3 points on 51.1 percent shooting after the All-Star break, which should position him to assume a more focal role in the Nuggets' offense in 2015-16.
