Hernangomez mustered 3.3 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.5 assists across 25 games with Denver during the 2017-18 season.
Hernangomez's sophomore campaign was a disastrous one as he only scored in double figures just once all year long and wasn't a factor in any other categories. The Spain native is signed with Denver for next season where he will make about $2.2 million.
Hernangomez (illness) is not listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Suns, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
Hernangomez sat out Saturday's game against Philadelphia with an illness, but after a few days of additional rest and recovery, he'll be available off the bench Wednesday. That said, Hernangomez has fallen outside the regular rotation, seeing a total of three minutes over the Nuggets last eight games, so he can safely be avoided in fantasy leagues for the time being.
Hernangomez is questionable for Saturday's contest against the 76ers due to an illness, T.J. McBride of Mile High Sports reports.
More information on his status should arrive following Saturday's morning shootaround. That said, he's played just three minutes over the past four games. So, if he misses the contest, the Nuggets' rotation probably won't shift.
Hernangomez provided seven points (3-9 FG, 1-6 3Pt), 10 rebounds and one block across 28 minutes in Tuesday's 106-77 loss to the Jazz.
Hernangomez drew his first start of the season in place of Wilson Chandler (back) at small forward and was able to generate a team-high number of rebounds in the process. The 22-year-old Spaniard has provided solid scoring and rebounding numbers over the last five games while seeing between 18 and 28 minutes during that stretch, and he serves as a viable grab off the wire for those in deeper formats needing some help in those categories. Hernangomez flashed some upside during his rookie 2016-17 campaign, posting seven double-digit scoring efforts.
Hernangomez will start at small forward for Tuesday's game against the Jazz, Gina Mizell of the Denver Post reports.
With Wilson Chandler sitting out with a back injury, Hernangomez gets the call with the top unit, marking his first start of the season. Hernangomez has averaged just 12.0 minutes per game, but should see a sizable increase in his workload with the promotion. Still, Will Barton is likely to take on a chunk of Chandler's minutes as well and has more upside between the two, so that'll make Hernangomez nothing more than a punt-play option for Tuesday's DFS slate. Either way, Hernangomez should see a temporary uptick in his fantasy value.
