Top Nuggets News

  • Nuggets' JaMychal Green: Stays hot

    Green scored 15 points (4-10 FG, 3-7 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go along with 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 20 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Heat.

    Green has recorded at least 15 points in each of his last three games. He's been reliant upon strong efficiency in that span -- he's shot 13-for-27 from the field and made eight of 20 three-pointers -- as he has not topped 24 minutes since Jan 14. While Green has also been solid on the boards, he has failed to produce in any other area of the stat sheet leaving with him a limited profile from a fantasy perspective.

  • Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Struggles with shot

    Murray scored 14 points (4-11 FG, 2-4 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go along with five rebounds, four assists and one steal in Wednesday's win over the Heat.

    Murray couldn't find his shot from the mid-range and was reliant mostly upon free throws and three-point shots to produce. His scoring ability shouldn't be an ongoing concern, as both his true shooting and effective field-goal percentage have been in line with his career norms through 17 games this season. While Murray hasn't made any leaps in his game, he has consistently produced points, assists and steals and should remain reliable in those areas for the remainder of the campaign.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Leads rout of Heat

    Jokic scored 21 points (9-14 FG, 1-5 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds, three assists and one block in Wednesday's win over the Heat.

    It was a relatively boring stat line for Jokic, which highlights just how strong his start to the campaign has been. However, he did maintain his streak of double-doubles and has recorded one in all 18 contests this season. He's also produced in peripheral areas of the stat sheet, as Wednesday marked the first game that he failed to generate at least one steal since Jan. 9.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Records four steals

    Porter scored 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-7 3PT) to go along with five rebounds, one assist and four steals across 25 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Heat.

    Porter couldn't match the 30-point performance from his previous game, though he's now connected on at least three triples in each of his last three contests. He also recorded a season-high four steals and has managed to record multiple swipes in four of his eight games this season. Despite some strong stat lines, Porter's role on the team has remained fluid as he's rarely played above 30 minutes. That could change as he continues to ramp up after a lengthy absence caused by the COVID-19 health and safety protocols -- leaving room for improvement in his production.

  • Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Set to miss multiple games

    Coach Michael Malone expects Dozier (hamstring) to miss at least the next couple games, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

    The 24-year-old was already ruled out for Wednesday's matchup with the Heat, and it appears he'll also be sidelined for Friday's game against the Spurs. Dozier's next chance to play should be Sunday versus the Jazz, which is the front half of a back-to-back set.

  • Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Won't play Wednesday

    Dozier (hamstring) will miss Wednesday's game against the Heat.

    Dozier strained his right hamstring during Monday's game against the Mavericks. His exact return date remains unclear, but the injury will cost him at least one contest.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Notches another double-double

    Jokic posted 20 points (8-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block across 34 minutes Monday in the Nuggets' 117-113 win over the Mavericks.

    Jokic continued his streak of double-doubles, achieving the statistical feat for the 17th time in as many games. The fact that Monday's line was a relatively "down" performance for Jokic is a testament to his dominance. He's currently averaging 25.4 points, 11.9 rebounds, 9.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game, all of which are career highs.

  • Nuggets' JaMychal Green: Posts another strong performance

    Green recorded 17 points (5-9 FG, 3-7 3PT, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and two steals in 22 minutes during the 117-113 win against Dallas on Monday.

    After starting the season excellently, Green has fallen off a bit. The forward has seen a consistent season fall to a rollercoaster trend, but has picked up the pace as of late. He is currently averaging 16.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists during this two-game spree.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Erupts for 30 points in win

    Porter posted 30 points (10-18 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds and two steals across 28 minutes during the Nuggets' 117-113 win over the Mavericks on Monday.

    Making his third appearance since returning from a lengthy absence due to the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Porter came through with a dazzling performance. The Nuggets have brought Porter off the bench in each of his first three games back, but it shouldn't be long before he unseats Will Barton as the team's starting small forward. Regardless of whether he's deployed on the top or second unit, Porter should continue to see enough minutes to deliver top-50 fantasy value in eight- and nine-category leagues the rest of the way.

  • Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Ejected Monday

    Murray was ejected from Monday's game against the Mavericks after being assessed a Flagrant 2 foul, Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com reports.

    Murray was tossed in the third quarter for what the officials deemed a hostile act. He finished with 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes.

  • Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Will not return

    Dozier will not return to Monday's matchup with the Mavericks due to a right hamstring injury, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.

    Dozier was off to a strong start before suffering the injury. He compiled eight points (2-3 FG, 2-2 3PT, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one block and one steal across nine minutes before exiting the contest. The severity of the issue is unknown at this time, but his next chance to suit up will be Wednesday versus the Heat.

  • Nuggets' Monte Morris: Another quality outing off bench

    Morris produced 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one block across 36 minutes Saturday in the Nuggets' 120-112 double-overtime win over the Suns.

    Though none of the Denver starters were mired in any serious foul trouble on the night, Morris still saw the third-most minutes of any Nuggets player in the win. The return of Michael Porter (COVID-19 protocol) for the two-game set with Phoenix didn't seem to have too much of a negative effect on Morris, who averaged 15.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 triples in 34.0 minutes. Morris is still best viewed as an option in 14-team leagues or deeper, but his strong recent form may be enough to keep him on a watch list for 12-team formats.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Double-doubles off bench

    Porter tallied 14 points (5-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, one steal and one blocked shot in a 120-112 double-overtime win over the Suns on Saturday.

    After logging only 20 minutes Friday in his return from a 10-game absence, Porter was on the court for 35 minutes Saturday and was much more productive as a result. He was one of six Nuggets to score in double figures in the double-overtime victory and ranked second on the team with 11 boards. While he performed in a reserve role Saturday, Porter figures to make his way back into the starting lineup before long, especially given the extent to which he outperformed starting forward Will Barton (one point in 21 minutes) against the Suns.
