Grant finished with nine points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and two rebounds in 17 minutes during the Nuggets' 113-97 Wednesday night loss to the Mavericks.
Grant was the only player off Denver's bench to score more than three points. The Nuggets had no answer for Boban Marjanovic (31 points, 17 rebounds) in the frontcourt. Meanwhile, fantasy owners enter a mysterious stage amid the impact of the COVID-19 virus and how long the league will remain suspended or how many games will be played when/if play resumes.
Grant scored 19 points (6-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), while tacking on six rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block across 29 minutes during the Nuggets' 109-95 win against the Bucks on Monday.
Grant was instrumental in Denver building a sizable lead through the first half, as Milwaukee's second unit was daring him to shoot the ball. Unfortunately for Grant shareholders, he provided only four points after halftime. His playing time still fluctuates, but per 36 minutes, Grant is averaging 15.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.9 triples.
Grant will return to a reserve role in Tuesday's game against the Warriors, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.
Grant shined in Sunday's 133-118 victory over the Raptors after getting a spot-start in place of Paul Millsap. However. Millsap will return to the starting lineup in Tuesday's matchup. Grant has averaged 10.1 points and 3.1 rebounds across 22.6 minutes in 37 games off the bench this season.
Grant amassed 16 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists and three rebounds in 35 minutes during Sunday's 133-118 victory over the Raptors.
With Paul Millsap (ankle) being ruled out prior to tipoff, Grant was afforded the starter's tag and certainly made the most of the promotion. After a period of 12-team relevancy during Millsap's extended layoff, Grant found himself dropped in many leagues. However, he has been able to maintain standard-league production, albeit with less fanfare. It doesn't sound as though Millsap is going to miss extended time and his return could impact Grant once again.
Grant produced 20 points (5-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 8-10 FT), four rebounds, two assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 29 minutes in Friday's 132-103 loss to the Clippers.
With Paul Millsap finally back to full health, Grant has moved back to the bench but is still making a substantial contribution. Since heading to the pine, he's averaged a respectable 16.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists over a four-game span.
Grant notched a career-high 29 points (12-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with four rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 115-98 win over the Pistons.
Grant returned to the bench three games ago as Paul Millsap took over the starting power forward role, but the athletic big man has responded with 15.7 points per game and a 58.1 field-goal percentage in those three games. That said, Grant is not going to score 29 points on a nightly basis as a bench player, and thus, his upside likely will decrease compared to the value he had before the All-Star break, when he was starting on a regular basis.
Grant came off the bench and provided six points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound and one assist across 21 minutes Friday in the Nuggets' 113-101 loss to the Thunder.
Grant had started in each of his previous 18 appearances and saw more than 30 minutes in all but three of those contests, but he saw his playing time decline steadily Friday while coach Michael Malone moved Paul Millsap back into the starting five. Millsap had come off the bench in the Nuggets' final three games of the first half while being eased back in from an extended absence due to a left knee injury, but Malone was ready to turn the veteran loose coming out of the All-Star break. A low-20-minute role looks like it may become the new norm for Grant, which would render him unappealing in 12-team leagues.
Grant ended with 10 points (4-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 117-108 victory over the Suns.
Grant missed only one game with an ankle injury, making his return Saturday. He remained in the starting lineup despite the return of Paul Millsap. Grant has been fantastic since Millsap went down and there is a decent chance he sticks with the opening five moving forward. If you have been holding Grant, you might want to give him a few more games before deciding whether to part ways.
Grant (ankle) is available to play Saturday against the Suns.
The 25-year-old was upgraded to probable Friday, so it's not a major surprise he'll be suiting up in Phoenix. Grant started the previous 15 games before suffering the ankle injury and will start again Saturday, despite Paul Millsap (knee) also being back in action.
Grant (ankle) has been upgraded to probable ahead of Saturday's game against the Suns.
Grant was originally listed as questionable for the contest, but he appears to be trending in the right direction. Barring any setbacks, he looks on track to return from a one-game absence. Still, confirmation on his status is unlikely to come until closer to tip-off.
Grant (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Suns, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.
Grant is at risk of missing a second straight contest due to a sprained right ankle. More information may arrive following the Nuggets' morning shootaround.
Grant (ankle) isn't available for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.
Grant picked up the ankle injury Tuesday versus Portland and won't be able to play the second half of the back-to-back set. Denver will have only seven active players Wednesday due to the recent four-team trade and injuries to Michael Porter (ankle), Will Barton (knee) and Paul Millsap (knee).
Grant (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's contest against Utah.
Though it was previously reported that Grant is unlikely to play Wednesday, Grant's health has seemingly progressed since he came down with the injury in Tuesday's game, and he now is officially tabbed as questionable. With Paul Millsap (knee) out once again, either Grant (if he's active) or Michael Porter could see increased run in Wednesday's matchup.
Coach Michael Malone downplayed the severity of the sprained right ankle Grant suffered in Tuesday's 127-99 win over Portland, though he doesn't believe the power forward will be available Wednesday at Utah, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.
The 25-year-old entered the contest with a back issue but started and put up 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes before exiting with the ankle injury. Juancho Hernangomez played 28 minutes Tuesday and could likely see an expanded workload again Wednesday if Grant is indeed unavailable.
Grant suffered a right ankle sprain and is questionable to return against the Trail Blazers.
Grant sprained his ankle and immediately went back to the locker room. Look for more updates on his status to come ahead of Wednesday's tilt with the Jazz. Should he miss extended time, look for Juancho Hernangomez to see an uptick in minutes as Paul Millsap (ankle), Mason Plumlee (foot) and Michael Porter (ankle) all continue to nurse injuries.
Grant (back) has been cleared to play in Tuesday's tilt against the Trail Blazers, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.
Grant was a late addition to the injury report hours before tip-off. However, it looks like his pregame warmups went well enough for him to get the green light. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual workload.
Grant is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers with thoracic tightness.
The 25-year-old is a late addition to Tuesday's injury report, putting his availability in doubt for the front end of the back-to-back set. Grant's potential absence would leave the Nuggets extremely shorthanded in the frontcourt, with Michael Porter (ankle), Paul Millsap (knee) and Mason Plumlee (foot) already ruled out.
Grant posted 14 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three blocks and one steal in 45 minutes during Sunday's 128-123 overtime loss at Detroit.
Grant has scored in double digits in all but one game since moving to the starting lineup 14 games ago and is averaging 15.0 points per game during that stretch. He has been a force on the defensive end of the court of late, though, tallying 10 blocks in his last two games and logging multiple blocks and/or steals in four of his last seven contests.
Grant amassed 15 points (5-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes during Thursday's 106-100 victory over Utah.
Grant was somewhat underwhelming Thursday but still managed to contribute in a number of categories. With the Nuggets struggling to find healthy players, Grant has stepped into the starting power forward role. Over the past two weeks, he has been a second-round player in nine-category formats, establishing himself as a must-roster player. Given his strong play, there is a realistic chance he can maintain standard league value, even when others start returning.
Grant notched 21 points (7-17 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 104-96 loss at Memphis.
Grant has topped the 20-point mark in back-to-back games, and he continues to benefit from Paul Millsap's absence due to a knee injury. The 25-year-old power forward has started each of Denver's last 11 games and is averaging 15.5 points while shooting 47.2 percent from the field and an impressive 44.7 percent from three-point range during that stretch. Grant's value and upside moving forward will be heavily dependent on the return of both Millsap and Jamal Murray (ankle), but he has been Denver's second-best scoring option over the last few weeks and should remain in that role at least on a short-term basis.
