Plumlee compiled six points, six rebounds, five steals, one assist, and one block in 24 minutes during Monday's 121-113 victory over Portland. Plumlee provided a spark off the bench Monday, coming up with some big plays as the Nuggets held on for the victory. He had a couple of strong put-back dunks as well as five steals, providing exactly what the Nuggets needed despite the limited playing time. He is far from flashy but Plumlee should continue to play a sizeable enough role moving forward, consistently demonstrating his ability to produce across the board.
Plumlee pitched in one point (0-4 FG, 1-3 FT), three rebounds, and one block in 16 minutes during Tuesday's 108-90 Game 5 win over the Spurs. Plumlee has earned less than 20 minutes in four of five games here in the playoffs, and this was easily his worst outing yet. Moreover, his per-game averages have unsurprisingly dipped across the board as coach Michael Malone has been limiting the amount of time Plumlee and Nikola Jokic share the court.
Plumlee furnished 10 points (5-12 FG), 11 rebounds, six assists, three blocks and one steal across 32 minutes in the Nuggets' 115-108 loss to the Trail Blazers on Sunday. Plumlee ultimately fouled out, but he was able to put together a solid across-the-board performance prior to that point. The veteran big man drew the start for Nikola Jokic (rest), which led to his first double-double since March 26. Plumlee has proven a valuable second-unit contributor throughout the season and should continue seeing a solid allotment of minutes throughout Denver's playoff run.
Plumlee is starting Sunday's game against Portland, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. With the Nuggets resting three starters, Plumlee will join the first unit in place of Nikola Jokic. Plumlee's last start dates back to Feb. 11 against Miami.
Plumlee tallied nine points (4-7 FG, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, and one block in 25 minutes during Sunday's 95-90 loss to the Wizards. Plumlee had a decent game considering the outcome Sunday, falling just one point shy of a double-double. He has been clinging onto standard league value due primarily to his ability to put up out of position stats. If the Nuggets decide to rest players at all down the stretch, Plumlee could find himself in a larger role from time to time with his ability to play both the four and the five.
