Top Nuggets News

  • Nuggets' Markus Howard: Gets 28 minutes in G League

    Howard recorded 14 points (4-14 FG, 3-11 3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes Sunday in the G League Grand Rapids Gold's 115-111 loss to the Delaware Blue Coats.

    Denver assigned the two-way player to the Gold after he made his return from a near-one-month absence due to a sprained left knee in the Nuggets' 140-108 win over the Trail Blazers on Thursday. Though Howard is seemingly healthy now, the Nuggets didn't have a spot available for him in the rotation, so the second-year player looks like he'll pick up some extended run in the G League. While he shot inefficiently Sunday, Howard should remain a go-to scorer fo the Gold so long as he sticks with the affiliate.

  • Nuggets' Facundo Campazzo: Poor performance in Sunday's loss

    Campazzo ended Sunday's 125-102 loss to the Jazz with two points (1-7 FG, 0-5 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 19 minutes.

    Campazzo reminded us all why he should be viewed as a streaming option at best when it comes to standard fantasy leagues. While he has shown flashes this season, he is simply far too inconsistent to warrant a long-term roster spot. Grab him at a pinch if you need assists and steals but as we saw here, even those numbers aren't always guaranteed.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Serviceable yet unexciting in loss

    Morris had 13 points (6-13 FG, 1-8 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 29 minutes during Sunday's 125-102 loss to the Jazz.

    Morris did just enough to maintain backend 12-team value in the loss, continuing to be one of the more unexciting fantasy assets around. Despite being the starting point guard, he rarely teases us with any semblance of upside, preferring to chug along as the third or fourth wheel. As mentioned, he is fine to have on a 12-team roster but there is almost certainly a better, more promising option available on most waiver wires.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Another spectacular effort in loss

    Jokic finished Sunday's 125-102 loss to the Jazz with 25 points (10-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 15 rebounds, 14 assists and two steals across 37 minutes.

    Jokic racked up yet another triple-double during the loss, his ninth of the season. The reigning MVP is putting together another incredible season despite the fact the team has slipped in the standings when compared to the past few years. There is very little standing in his way from at least being in the conversation when it comes to the best player in the league. Those who drafted him in October have to be thrilled with the return on investment at this point.

  • Nuggets' Austin Rivers: Unavailable Sunday

    Rivers (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jazz, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Rivers will be sidelined for a second consecutive game due to a non-COVID illness. His next chance to return will be Wednesday against the Clippers.

  • Nuggets' Austin Rivers: Questionable Sunday

    Rivers (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jazz.

    Rivers missed Saturday's matchup with the Lakers due to the non-COVID illness, and he's questionable for the second half of the back-to-back set. Davon Reed could see more run if Rivers is out again Sunday.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Cruises to triple-double Saturday

    Jokic provided 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, 13 assists and one steal across 28 minutes during Saturday's 133-96 victory over Los Angeles.

    Jokic needed to play only 28 minutes in the contest due to the blowout nature of the win, but he still managed to notch his eighth triple-double of the campaign. The reigning NBA MVP led all players with 13 assists and 12 boards and shot an efficient 7-for-12 from the field. Jokic ranks in the top 10 leaguewide in points, rebounds and assists in what is shaping up to be another spectacular statistical season.

  • Nuggets' Jeff Green: Puts up 26 points in win

    Green produced 26 points (10-14 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, four assists and one steal across 29 minutes during Saturday's 133-96 victory over the Lakers.

    Green trailed only Bones Hyland (27 points) for high-scoring honors among Denver players in the blowout win, and he did so with a very efficient 10-for-14 shooting performance from the field. That mark included tying a season high with four three-pointers on only five attempts from deep. Green has thrived on offense for the Nuggets of late, averaging 18.2 points on 61.7 percent shooting over his past five contests.

  • Nuggets' Bones Hyland: Shines in blowout of Lakers

    Hyland contributed 27 points (8-15 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals across 33 minutes during Saturday's 133-96 win over the Lakers.

    Hyland saw a career-high 33 minutes in the contest, in large part due to the blowout nature of the affair. The rookie took advantage with a career-high point total and his first double-double in the NBA. Hyland has shown flashes of strong play this season, though he has yet to establish the consistency deserving of a roster spot in most fantasy leagues. Still, Saturday's showing is a reminder of why the Nuggets remain high on him and of his potential to be a fantasy asset eventually. For the moment, his strongest weapon is his three-point shot -- over his past two games, Hyland has gone 11-for-18 from beyond the arc.
