Hernangomez has undergone core muscle surgery, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.
Kosmider notes that the injury hampered Hernangomez's play around the All-Star break. He did have a strong beginning of the season, starting 25 straight games from Nov. 11 through Jan. 5, shooting 42.5 percent from distance for 11.2 points per game. However, after the break, he appeared in only 21 games and hit just 22.2 percent of his field goals. Hernangomez will presumably be healthy for the beginning of training camp.
Hernangomez (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the floor during Thursday's 113-108 win over the Wizards.
Hernangomez hasn't appeared in either of the last two games, this after being relegated to single-digit minutes in each of his last five appearances. With Nuggets coach Michael Malone deciding to shorten the rotation, Hernangomez has seen his role reduced here in March. As a result, he's avoidable across most fantasy formats.
Hernangomez (abdomen) logged six minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Nuggets' 114-108 loss to the Jazz, finishing with one steal and one block.
The abdominal strain prevented Hernangomez from playing Saturday against Cleveland, but it was only a short-term issue for the forward. Though his health is seemingly no longer a concern, Hernangomez's spot in the Denver rotation remains on shaky ground with Gary Harris and Will Barton seemingly no longer facing any restrictions following their recent returns from injury.
Hernangomez (abdomen) is available for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Hernangomez missed Saturday's tilt with Cleveland due to an abdominal strain, but appears to be fully healthy and set to go Wednesday. Through 43 games, he's averaging 8.7 points and 5.1 rebounds in 25.4 minutes per game, although that level of production has fallen recently with Paul Millsap's return to the starting role.
Hernangomez (abdomen) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.
Hernangomez was held out of Saturday's contest due to an abdominal strain, but he could take the court in his team's upcoming game in Utah. He'll likely see how he feels in Wednesday's shootaround before a decision on his availability is made.
Hernangomez (abdomen) was ruled out for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers.
Hernangomez was considered questionable with the abdominal strain but won't be able to play Saturday. The 23-year-old's next chance to take the floor will be Wednesday at Utah, as the exact severity of the abdominal issue remains unclear.
Hernangomez is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers due to an abdominal strain, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.
Reports surfaced last week that Hernangomez was dealing with some discomfort, and it's possible now that discomfort has grown to a decently concerning level. The exact severity is unclear, but the Nuggets should provide another update on Hernangomez at some point after shootaround Saturday.
Hernangomez has been suffering from some type of discomfort of late, although the team trainers expect him to continue playing through it, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
Hernangomez hasn't been able to produce much of late, and the undisclosed injury could be a big reason why. Head coach Michael Malone indicated that if the issue got any worse, Hernangomez would be shut down until returning to health. His status will be worth monitoring moving forward.
Hernangomez will come off the bench Monday against Houston.
Hernangomez has been in a slump of late, and with both Gary Harris and Paul Millsap returning to the starting five, Hernangomez will head to a bench role. Torrey Craig will bump over to small forward with Hernangomez becoming a reserve.
Hernangomez delivered 27 points (8-13 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 13 rebounds and one assist across 36 minutes in the Nuggets' 111-103 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday.
Hernangomez tied his career best in scoring while establishing a new high-water mark in rebounds during the standout effort. The 23-year-old also posted a season high in made threes along the way, bouncing back from a 2-for-12 slump from distance that had encompassed his last three games. Hernangomez's offensive production continues to fluctuate, but he's been reasonably consistent on the boards, hauling in at least five rebounds in seven of 10 December contests.
Hernangomez (abdomen) tallied 12 points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds and one block across 30 minutes in the Nuggets' 126-118 win over the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Hernangomez shook off the abdominal strain he entered the game with to essentially play close to a full complement of minutes, despite reports earlier in the day that he'd potentially be on a playing time restriction. The 23-year-old was able to bounce back nicely on the offensive end after posting only two points on 0-for-5 shooting Sunday against the Raptors. He continues to put together serviceable production while starting at small forward in place of Will Barton (abdomen), and he's now averaging a solid 12.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists across eight December games.
Hernangomez (abdomen) is active and will presumably start in Tuesday's tilt against the Mavericks, but could see his minutes monitored Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.
Hernangomez could have a short leash if he suffers any setbacks with his abdomen injury. Malik Beasley and Trey Lyles could see some extra run if that is this case. As of now, he is the presumed starting small forward and taking on something close to his usual workload.
Coach Michael Malone is "optimistic" about Hernangomez playing Tuesday against the Mavericks, Adam Mares of DenverStiffs.com reports.
Coach Malone also noted that if Hernangomez does play, his minutes will likely be monitored. If he's out or limited, Trey Lyles and Torrey Craig would probably see expanded roles.
Hernangomez is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks due to an abdominal strain, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.
Hernangomez apparently picked up the injury during Sunday's game against the Raptors, during which he posted two points, five rebounds and three assists across 28 minutes. His status will likely be updated closer to tipoff Tuesday, after he tests out the issue during warmups.
Hernangomez totaled 16 points (5-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 33 minutes during Friday's 109-98 victory over the Thunder.
Hernangomez bounced back after a poor showing against the Grizzlies, dropping 16 points including a pair of triples. He continues to play well as a starter and is the 53rd ranked player over the past two weeks. Despite the impressive play, he is still available in a number of leagues and really needs to be on a roster in most formats.
Hernangomez scored 17 points (5-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, an assist and a block in 40 minutes during Saturday's 106-98 loss to the Hawks.
The Nuggets' injury-wracked roster is currently missing three regular starters in Paul Millsap (toe), Will Barton (groin) and Gary Harris (hip), creating opportunities for players like Hernangomez to be productive. The 23-year-old forward has recorded back-to-back double-doubles while scoring in double digits in seven of his last eight games, and hitting for double-digit boards in three of his last five.
Hernangomez scored 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal in 37 minutes during Friday's 113-107 loss to the Hornets.
It's the third-year forward's second double-double of the season, and he continues to take advantage of Will Barton's absence due to groin surgery -- Hernangomez is averaging 12.5 points, 6.9 boards and 2.1 three-pointers in 32.2 minutes a night over 13 starts. There's no firm timetable yet for Barton's return, so Hernangomez will remain a viable fantasy option in deeper leagues in the short term.
Hernangomez recorded nine points (2-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot across 29 minutes in Friday's 113-112 win over the Trail Blazers.
While Will Barton (groin) should return to the starting lineup soon, Hernangomez has strung together s decent set of games in a starring role. He didn't even see the floor until mid-October, as the Nuggets fiddled with some alternate schemes before settling on Hernangomez at the three at the beginning of November. He's averaging a respectable 11.2 points and 5.6 rebounds this month, and he's shot a crisp 45.8 percent from beyond the arc as well, where he heaves up an average of 4.5 attempts per game. This kind of output will take a hit when Barton returns, but he's definitely made a case for more playing time and won't regress back to DNP status.
Hernangomez played 24 minutes and tallied 12 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one block in Tuesday's 117-85 win over the Lakers.
The minutes were down for most of the Denver starters due to the big margin of victory, but it didn't prevent Hernangomez from reaching double figures in the scoring column for the third straight game. Hernangomez typically isn't offering well-rounded production most nights, but his averages of 12.2 points (on 48.1 percent shooting from the field), 6.7 rebounds, 2.1 treys and 1.2 assists through nine games as a starter are enough to make him a useful fantasy option in most formats for the time being.
Hernangomez finished with 20 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, and one block in 35 minutes during Saturday's 125-115 loss to the Pelicans.
Hernangomez has now played at least 30 minutes in four consecutive games and appears to have a firm grasp on the starting small forward position. He is averaging 22.5 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 3.0 triples over his last two games. These numbers are likely unsustainable but he is worth a look in standard formats, at least until Will Barton (groin) returns.
