Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (groin) is out Sunday against the Trail Blazers.

Dozier will be sidelined for a seventh straight game Sunday, which marks the Nuggets' final regular-season game. The playoffs start next weekend, so Dozier has some time to recover before the first round.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Remains out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (groin) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Charlotte, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

Denver head coach Michael Malone suggested less than a week ago that Dozier is facing an extended absence, so the 24-year-old appears unlikely to return for the Nuggets' final four regular-season games. With Will Barton (hamstring) also sidelined, Austin Rivers and Shaquille Harrison should continue to hold down regular rotation spots for Denver.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: No timeline for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Michael Malone indicated Wednesday that Dozier (groin) is facing an extended absence, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

The 24-year-old suffered a right adductor strain Tuesday, and Malone said he doesn't expect the wing to play "anytime soon." It's safe to assume Dozier will be sidelined through the end of the regular season, which finishes up May 16 at Portland, and his availability for the playoffs remains uncertain at best.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Out with adductor strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Knicks with a right adductor strain, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

The 24-year-old underwent an MRI on Tuesday after leaving Monday's contest with a hip injury, and he'll miss at least one game with the adductor strain. Dozier's availability beyond Wednesday's contest remains up in the air.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Gets MRI on hip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier was scheduled to receive an MRI on his left hip Tuesday, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

The Nuggets want to get a clearer sense of the severity of Dozier's hip injury after he became the latest member of a growing list of banged-up Denver guards during Monday's loss to the Lakers. The team is viewing Dozier as day-to-day ahead of Wednesday's game against the Knicks, but the fact that he was sent in for the MRI doesn't inspire much confidence that he'll be available for the contest.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Suffers hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Lakers due to hip tightness, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

Dozier went down in the fourth quarter but was able to make his way to the locker room under his own power. Initial reports indicate that he was able to avoid a significant injury.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Scores 16 in winning effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier scored 16 points (7-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with five rebounds and one assist across 34 minutes in Saturday's win over the Clippers.

Dozier continued to see big minutes with Will Barton (hamstring) and Monte Morris (hamstring) both sidelined again. As a result, Dozier remained in the starting lineup for his fifth straight game and scored in double-digits for the third time in that span. Other than a strong 48.3 field-goal percentage, Dozier hasn't contributed much aside from points, as he's averaged only 3.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.8 blocks since entering the starting lineup.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Sets career high with 23 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier totaled 23 points (10-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocked shots across 28 minutes in Saturday's 129-116 win over the Rockets.

Dozier already stood to receive more playing time in the wake of Jamal Murray's (knee) injury, but after Will Barton sustained a possibly severe hamstring injury, he found himself making his first career start. He made the highlight reel right away, with a buzzer-beating dunk after reeling in a hail-mary pass from Nikola Jokic. Dozier should be poised for extensive contributions as the Nuggets make a push for the playoffs.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Gets chance to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against Houston, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Dozier has handled a sizeable role off the bench for Denver recently, and he'll now draw his first start of the season with Will Barton (hamstring) sidelined by what may not be a short-term injury. With over 20 minutes in each of his last five games, and 30 or more minutes in two of those contests, Dozier is clearly worth real fantasy consideration.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Plays major role off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier ended with seven points (3-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 106-105 victory over Portland.

Dozier led all Nuggets reserves with 25 minutes, something that could stick for at least the short term. With the Nuggets down two primary guards in Jamal Murray (knee) and Monte Morris (hamstring), Dozier could find himself in an elevated role, potentially leading to him putting up back-end fantasy value.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Picks up three steals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier totaled eight points (3-9 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists and three steals in a 134-119 victory over the Pistons on Tuesday.

Dozier saw additional opportunities with Jamal Murray (knee) out of the lineup and had a solid two-way performance. The guard was able to match his season-high total in steals and also contributed as a distributor on offense. Dozier has been struggling offensively over his last seven games, averaging just 3.0 points on 21.1 percent shooting from the field and 16.7 percent shooting from three.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Drops 13 in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier scored 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and added five rebounds in a 129-104 victory over the Hornets on Wednesday.

Dozier picked up his first double figure scoring game of the second half of the season in what was a dominant victory for the Nuggets. The guard missed 15 games in January and February due to a hamstring injury, but he has been a consistent piece in the rotation for Denver this season. Across 25 games, Dozier is averaging 7.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game -- both career highs.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Scores season-high 19 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier finished with 19 points (8-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound and one assist in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 128-97 victory over the Bucks.

Dozier let his scoring do the talking in the victory, dropping 19 points while attempting a career-high 17 field goals. This was just his third game back after an extended period on the sidelines, and while the points are certainly flashy, he is not a player to prioritize in 12-team leagues at this point.

February 28, 2021 01:16 PM
Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Plays well in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (hamstring) logged nine points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block across 14 minutes Saturday in the Nuggets' 126-96 win over the Thunder.

Due to the blowout nature of the contest, the Nuggets had the luxury of easing Dozier back into the rotation after he had missed the previous 15 games with a hamstring strain. Dozier looked sharp in his return to the court, and he could be in store for a slight uptick in playing time in the Nuggets' remaining three games before the All-Star break with Denver uncertain to have any of JaMychal Green (shoulder), Gary Harris (thigh) or Paul Millsap (knee) available for the upcoming week.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Active vs. OKC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (hamstring) is active for Saturday's game against the Thunder, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

The fourth-year wing has been sidelined since Jan. 27, but he'll be able to take the court Saturday. In 19.4 minutes per game, he has averaged 7.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists.

February 26, 2021 04:32 PM
Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Questionable vs. OKC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Thunder, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

Dozier has been sidelined since Jan. 27, but he may finally be able to return Saturday. If he does, there's a good chance he will be on a minutes limit.

Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (hamstring) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Wizards, Mike Singer of the Denver Post reports.

Dozier hasn't played since late January and remains without a timetable. At this point, he'll likely remain out through the All-Star break.

February 22, 2021 03:56 PM
Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Out again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (hamstring) will remain out for Tuesday's game against Portland, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.

Dozier will miss his 14th straight game due to a hamstring strain as he nears a full month since his last appearance. At this point, it's completely unclear when Dozier will be available to return to game action.

February 20, 2021 05:48 PM
Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (hamstring) will not play in Sunday's game against the Hawks, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

Dozier hasn't played since Jan. 25 due to the right hamstring strain, and he'll miss his thirteenth consecutive game Sunday. It's still unclear whether he'll be able to return any time soon, but missing another game suggests that he isn't overly close.

February 18, 2021 06:00 PM
Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Still sidelined Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Cleveland.

Dozier has been unavailable since Jan. 25 due to a right hamstring strain, and he'll miss yet another contest Friday. It's not yet clear when he'll be able to return.
