Nuggets' Mason Plumlee: Coming off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plumlee (abdomen) will play a reserve role in Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

Plumlee was listed as probable heading into the evening, and will indeed give it a go. Coach Mike Malone indicated during pregame that he may shake up the starting lineup, which has indeed resulted in the big man being replaced by Will Barton. He has averaged 6.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.4 assists across 17.1 minutes in 22 appearances off the bench this season.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton will get the start at small forward for Tuesday's tilt against the Mavericks, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

Coach Mike Malone hinted during pregame that he may shakeup the starting lineup, and it turns out Barton will be the beneficiary. He has averaged 17.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.0 assists across a healthy 38.0 minutes in nine starts this season.

Nuggets' Mason Plumlee: Probable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plumlee is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks due to a lateral trunk strain.

It's unclear exactly when Plumlee suffered the core injury, but it doesn't appear as though it will cause him to miss any time. Expect Plumlee to be active Tuesday and play his typical workload of around 20 minutes against the Mavericks.

Nuggets' Gary Harris: Reunites with team to score 18 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris posted 18 points (6-16 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two assists, two rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes during Saturday's 112-80 loss to the Spurs.

Harris boarded a private plane just hours before tip-off after tending to the birth of his child and arrived in time to draw the start, but it was all for naught despite his nice effort, which was good enough for the second=best scoring output on the team. Harris has been his usual efficient self for most of the season, as he's connected with almost 50 percent of his shots in 39 games making him one of the best shooting guards in the game in that category. He's also averaging almost six three-point attempts per game and connecting with 38.3 percent of them. The 22-year old is rarely going to fill up a huge stat line in multiple categories but he is a good source of steals and 3-pointers for roto leagues and is a decent second or third guard in weekly formats.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Fills up stat line in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jokic scored 23 points (8-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 40 minutes during Saturday's 112-80 loss to the Spurs.

Jokic had a decent night overall despite failing to record a double-double for a third straight game. Since returning from injury, JOkic has basically kept pace with his season averages but is distributing the ball a bit more, as he's averaged 16.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 5.6 assists over that 15-game span. His shot has been about 10 percent colder in that span though (44.6 percent) so he'll need more nights like Saturday to boost that average back up.
