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.
