Top Nuggets News

  • Nuggets' Will Barton: Ruled out Thursday

    Barton (personal) isn't available for Thursday's game against the Bulls.

    Barton departed Thursday morning's shootaround due to a personal issue, and he'll be held out of the game as a result. The details surrounding Barton's status remain murky, but more information on his availability moving forward should come to light in the near future.

  • Nuggets' Gary Harris: Cleared to play

    Harris (hamstring) is available for Thursday's game against Chicago.

    After a five-game absence due to a hamstring injury, Harris will be ready to take the court in what figures to be a favorable matchup for the Nuggets. He figures to rejoin the starting lineup, although Denver may hold him to a minutes limit to prevent further injury. Malik Beasley would shift back to a bench role if Harris does in fact return to the starting five.

  • Nuggets' Thomas Welsh: Transfered to G League

    Welsh was assigned to the Iowa Wolves of the G League on Thursday, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

    Welsh got to see some playing time Tuesday given the blowout nature of the Nuggets' outing with the Warriors, and the rookie scored one point in seven minutes. Now, with the Wolves scheduled to play three games over the next five days, Welsh should get an opportunity to see plenty of run in the G League.

  • Nuggets' Will Barton: Excused from shootaround

    Barton was excused from Thursday's shootaround due to personal reasons, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

    Specifics regarding Barton's absence remain unclear, as does his status for Thursday's game against the Bulls. Look for his status to clear up closer to game-time.

  • Nuggets' Gary Harris: Questionable for Thursday

    Harris (hamstring) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Bulls, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.

    Left hamstring soreness has prevented the wing from playing in each of the past five games, though it's possible he makes his return Thursday. More information may arrive following the Nuggets' morning shootaround. If he ends up cleared to play, it's not a guarantee he'd immediately return to the starting five and/or see a full complement of minutes.

  • Nuggets' Thomas Welsh: Sees action in blowout

    Welsh played seven minutes and supplied one point (1-2 FT), one rebound and one assist Tuesday in the Nuggets' 142-111 loss to the Warriors.

    The blowout loss allowed coach Michael Malone to empty the bench, resulting in Welsh making just his ninth appearance at the NBA level. The rookie center is a two-way player for Denver and will likely be headed back to the G League in the near future.

  • Nuggets' Brandon Goodwin: Plays nine minutes in loss

    Goodwin mustered three points (1-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and one assist in nine minutes during Tuesday's 142-111 loss to the Warriors.

    Goodwin saw a career high minute total in this his 10th appearance. With that being said, it was the blowout nature of the game that allowed Goodwin the opportunity, and he's not a reliable option for any format.

  • Nuggets' Tyler Lydon: Scoreless in nine minutes

    Lydon had zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound, and one assist in nine minutes during Tuesday's 142-111 loss to the Warriors.

    Lydon has appeared in three of the last four games, but this was just the 15th time he has seen the the floor this season. Moreover, he hasn't earn double-digit minutes even once. As a result, he can be avoided across all formats.

  • Nuggets' Will Barton: Well-rounded line in loss

    Barton supplied 11 points (3-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, and one block in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 142-111 loss to the Warriors.

    Barton couldn't buy a bucket from two-point range and finished with as many field-goal attempts as points. Nevertheless, he contributed in every category except steals while amassing a season high rebounding total and matching his season high in assists. Barton's groin injury has limited him to five games this season, but fantasy owners can safely re-insert him into lineups.

  • Nuggets' Malik Beasley: Scores 22 points in Tuesday's loss

    Beasley contributed 22 points (8-14 FG, 6-10 3Pt) and one rebound in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 142-111 loss to the Warriors.

    Beasley drew another start in place of Gary Harris (hamstring), and the 22-year-old shooting guard scored at least 20 points for the sixth time through 43 appearances this season. Five of those offensive outbursts have taken place over the last 12 tilts. With that being said, Harris seems to be nearing his return to action.

  • Nuggets' Trey Lyles: Plays nine minutes in loss

    Lyles (wrist) finished with four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds, and two assists in nine minutes during Tuesday's 142-111 loss to the Warriors.

    Lyles returned to the lineup following a two-game absence with a wrist injury. However, there were nine Nuggets who earned double-digit minutes in this one, and Lyles wasn't one of them. Lyles has been leapfrogged in the rotation by fellow power forward Juancho Hernangomez, which doesn't bode well for his fantasy value, especially once Gary Harris (hamstring) is healthy.

  • Nuggets' Trey Lyles: Available Tuesday

    Lyles (wrist) will be available off the bench for Tuesday's tilt with the Warriors,

    Lyles will return to his usual reserve role following a two game absence due to a sprained right wrist. Barring any setbacks, he should take on his usual workload in the rotation.

  • Nuggets' Gary Harris: Out Tuesday

    Harris (hamstring) is out Tuesday against the Warriors, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.

    Harris will miss a fifth straight contest due to his left hamstring soreness, though things seem to be progressing positively considering he was listed as questionable entering Tuesday. His next chance to play is Thursday against the Bulls.

  • Nuggets' Trey Lyles: Questionable vs. Warriors

    Lyles (wrist) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Warriors, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.

    Lyles has missed the previous two games due to a sprained right wrist. Look for his status to clear up following Tuesday's shootaround; if Lyles remains unavailable, Mason Plumlee and Juancho Hernangomez could see some increased run.

  • Nuggets' Gary Harris: Listed as questionable for Tuesday

    Harris (hamstring) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Warriors, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.

    Harris has missed the last four games due to a hamstring injury, but it sounds like he could return for Tuesday's matchup against Golden State. His status should clear up following Tuesday's shootaround. If Harris is unable to play, Malik Beasley would likely pick up another start in his place.

  • Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Posts career-high scoring total

    Jokic recorded a career-high 40 points (15-23 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 6-8 FT) to go with 10 rebounds and eight assists over 37 minutes in Sunday's 116-113 win over Portland.

    Jokic continues to tear through January and is now up to averages of 27.3 points, 12.1 rebounds and 7.9 assists over his last eight games. In that span, he's shooting 54 percent from the field, 81 percent from the line and 36.8 percent from beyond the arc on 4.8 attempts per game.
