Plumlee registered 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds and two assists in 14 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 116-100 loss against the Warriors.
Plumlee had his best outing since returning to action last month, but he hasn't been much of a fantasy asset this season aside from the field-goal percentage, even if he has an occasional big scoring night or a solid night on the glass. He's a streaming option at best, as his upside is handicapped by his lack of playing time and the presence of Nikola Jokic on the roster.
Plumlee (foot) posted four points (2-2 FG), two rebounds, two steals and one assist across 14 minutes off the bench Friday in the Nuggets' 113-101 loss to the Thunder.
The 29-year-old immediately stepped back into his normal role as Nikola Jokic's top backup in his first outing back from a 12-game absence due to a sprained right foot. He may draw closer to 20 minutes on nights when matchups are unfavorable for Jokic or the star center is dealing with foul trouble, but Plumlee remains merely a deep-league option at this time.

Plumlee becomes the latest Nuggets rotation player to fall victim to an injury, joining a list that also includes Gary Harris (groin), Jamal Murray (ankle) and Paul Millsap (knee). After the foot issue forced Plumlee out early in Monday's 107-100 win over the Timberwolves, Michael Porter -- who played a career-high 30 minutes and tallied 20 points, 14 rebounds and four assists -- saw the biggest spike in opportunity. Along with Porter, expect Juancho Hernangomez and Jerami Grant to see slight upticks in their playing time while the Nuggets' backup center is out of commission.

Plumlee has only noticed a mild uptick in playing time while Paul Millsap (knee) has been sidelined for the past six contests, but Millsap's hiatus as well as multi-game absences from Gary Harris (groin) and Jamal Murray (ankle) has allowed the reserve center to see increased use on offense. The 29-year-old has supplied exactly four assists in five of those six games while hitting double figures in scoring four times, including each of the last three.
Plumlee provided 10 points (5-6 FG), five rebounds and four assists in 17 minutes during Wednesday's 107-106 win over the Mavericks.
Plumlee pitched in solid counting stats while providing efficient scoring.

Plumlee finished with 15 points (3-4 FG, 9-10 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 120-115 win over the Kings.
After starting alongside Nikola Jokic in Saturday's win over the Nuggets in place of the injured Paul Millsap (quadriceps), Plumlee shifted to the second unit while Jerami Grant filled in for Millsap in the second half of the back-to-back set. The demotion resulted in no meaningful change in playing time or production for Plumlee, who went for 15 points in 20 minutes against the Grizzlies a day earlier. Denver is listing Millsap as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Rockets, so Plumlee's window of opportunity looks like it could soon come to a close.
Plumlee totaled 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes during Saturday's 119-110 victory over Memphis.
Plumlee was a surprise starter for the Nuggets, filling in for Paul Millsap (quad) who was ruled out prior to tipoff. This was likely a move to counter the interior size of the Grizzlies and shouldn't be viewed as a long term thing. Plumlee has the ability to put up 12-team numbers when he in on the floor. Unfortunately, he is typically limited to 20 minutes, as was the case in this one. If Millsap misses more time, Plumlee could be worth a look in deeper formats.
Plumlee will start during Saturday's contest against the Grizzlies, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.
With Paul Millsap (quad) out, Plumlee will step into the starting five. He, along with Jerami Grant, should see extra minutes in Millsap's absence. When Plumlee sees 20-plus minutes, he averages 12.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.2 steals.
Plumlee finished with 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-6 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and two blocks across 33 minutes in Sunday's 111-105 win over the Knicks.
Plumlee was excellent in his extended run, finishing in double digits for the eighth time on the campaign and tying a season-best mark with six dimes. Though Plumlee typically sees most of his use as the backup to Nikola Jokic, the two saw more time alongside one another with starting power forward Paul Millsap sitting out with a quadriceps injury. Unless Millsap's injury proves to be a long-term setback, Plumlee will be hard-pressed to approach this level of playing time most nights. Over his preceding five outings, Plumlee was averaging just 3.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 blocks in 15.4 minutes.
Plumlee supplied 11 points (5-5 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, six assists and three steals in just 21 minutes during Denver's 129-92 drubbing of the Knicks on Thursday.
Plumlee got some additionally run with Denver up by 23 going into the fourth quarter and there were plenty of stats to go around against the lowly Knicks. Despite being a versatile center, he remains more of an insurance policy/handcuff for Nikola Jokic than an independent fantasy contributor at this time.
Plumlee tallied a season-high 15 points (7-8 FG, 1-4 FT) to go with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes off the bench Tuesday in the Nuggets' 117-104 win over the Wizards.
For the second game in a row, Plumlee established a new top mark in scoring for the campaign, with the supremely efficient shooting aiding his efforts.

Plumlee had 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 16 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 116-104 win against the Suns.
Plumlee was surprisingly effective and delivered his best scoring effort of the current season, but things should be put into context here. With Nikola Jokic handling most of the workload at center, Plumlee's value shouldn't be very high going forward due to a lack of both production and playing time. He averages 6.5 points on 16.3 minutes per game this season.
Plumlee will be available for Sunday's game against the Suns, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
