Nuggets' Richard Jefferson: Won't be in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Michael Malone said Thursday that Jefferson won't start the season in the Nuggets' rotation, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

With Jefferson's late arrival to the team, it's not much of a surprise that he'll have to earn his way into Malone's rotation, especially considering that the 37-year-old is a veteran among a very young roster. Even if Jefferson does ultimately crack the team's rotation, he's not expected to play much of a role this season and will have very limited fantasy value.

Nuggets' Paul Millsap: Puts up 19 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Millsap registered 19 points (7-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds and one assist across the 33 minutes in Wednesday's 106-96 loss to the Jazz.

Millsap had an ok night despite coughing up the ball five times. He struggled from beyond the arc but managed 46.6 percent from the floor overall. Wednesday's performance showed a fairly seamless transition to a new role in Denver after four successful seasons in Atlanta. After playing alongside Dwight Howard last year, he feels right at home working with another outstanding center in Nikola Jokic. there's no reason to think Millsap won't perform at a high level with the change of scenery. ALthough you hope for a little more output, he's worth stashing on most rosters.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Leads team in rebounds and assists n loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic posted seven points (3-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 12 rebounds and eight assists across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 106-96 loss to the Jazz.

On a night where his shot wasn't working, Jokic still showed significant fantasy impact with his rebound and assists totals. He came up on the losing end of the battle in the paint with Rudy Gobert, who kept him contained at short range, leaving Jokic with little choice but to take some shots outside. Although he drilled one shot from beyond the arc, he showed very little offensively and ended up being very effective dishing the ball from the wing underneath to Paul Millsap. DEspite this losing effort, Jokic can't be ignored in any format. He's a top-flite option at center whenever he takes the floor.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Leads team off bench with 23 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton tallied 23 points (8-14 FG, 304 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 31 minutes in Wednesday's 106-96 loss to the Jazz.

Jamal Murray sort of disappeared in this game, leaving Gary Harris to play a little bit more at the point with Will Barton shifting between the wing and 2 slots. The Nuggets looked a little bit out of sorts at times despite leading most of the game. They were showing a lot of different looks but somehow getting it done. Barton was a key part of that effort as he was too hot to bench for most of the second and third quarter. It 's simply too early to tell if Barton can be depended on as an everyday sixth man for Denver, but the former Memphis standout is worth monitoring moving forward.

Nuggets' Emmanuel Mudiay: Set to open season in bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mudiay will come off the bench for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Jazz, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Mudiay has been battling Jamal Murray for the starting point guard job, but coach Michael Malone has opted to go with the younger Murray as the starter, with Mudiay coming off the bench. This is certainly a negative for Mudiay's fantasy value, though the Nuggets did release Jameer Nelson just a few days ago, so Mudiay should still see decent minutes while running with the second unit. For now, Murray is the point guard to own in the Denver backcourt.
