Player Notes

  • Aaron Gordon chucks up six donut in win
    Aaron Gordon missed all six of his shot attempts on Wednesday, finishing with just five rebounds, one assist and two turnovers across 22 minutes in a win over the Knicks.

    Advice: AG has not stepped up like we expected him to in wake of all the injuries in Denver, and tonight's scoreless performance was coming off the heels of three-straight, single-digit stinkers. The Nuggets only have six games remaining on their schedule, and we doubt Gordon will suddenly turn things around over this final stretch. Don't hesitate to send him to the wire if you're currently scrapping through the Fantasy Finals. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • REVENGE GAME! Rivers drops in 25 points vs. NYK
    Austin Rivers went off against the team that traded him at the deadline on Wednesday, tallying 25 points, three rebounds, three assists, six triples, three steals and one turnover in 28 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Rivers got his points efficiently, finishing 7-of-13 from the floor and 5-of-6 at the line, and he's going to have increased opportunity in Denver while P.J. Dozier (groin) and Monte Morris (hamstring) are watching from the sidelines alongside Jamal Murray (knee). Michael Porter Jr. confirmed after the game that this was indeed a revenge game, saying, "He’s talked to me extensively how difficult it was for him in New York. So he told me coming into tonight how aggressive he was going to be and he was trying to get those dudes back." He got his revenge tonight, but we still wouldn't trust him to be consistent, particularly with Denver's next two matchups coming against Utah and Brooklyn. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Millsap plays good defense but has bad stat line
    Paul Millsap returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday with P.J. Dozier (adductor) joining a plethora of Denver players on the inactive list and finished with six points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal over 24 minutes.

    Advice: Millsap shot just 3-of-13 from the floor tonight, but his defense was superb, as he helped hold Julius Randle to just 5-of-15 shooting and finished with a plus/minus rating of plus-17. At this stage in his career, Millsap is a lot more valuable to the Nuggets than any fantasy team. Michael Porter Jr. finished with a team-best plus/minus of plus-24 on his way to 17 points, six rebounds, three triples, three assists and one turnover in 25 minutes.

  • Nikola Jokic posts dominant double-double in win
    Nikola Jokic dominated the Knicks on Wednesday, tallying 32 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, two steals, two swats and four turnovers across 29 minutes in a 113-97 win.

    Advice: Jokic set a new career-high for points in a quarter when he netted 24 on 8-of-9 shooting from the field and 8-of-10 at the stripe over his first 12 minutes, and in typical Jokic fashion, he deflected from his amazing performance during his postgame interview and instead heaped praise on head coach Mike Malone. "The guy gave me everything. The guy gave me the freedom," said the MVP candidate of his coach. "He led me. He showed me the way. And we built a great relationship... it’s more than basketball. It’s six years of building something together." NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Noel (ankle) brings the defensive stats in return
    Nerlens Noel (ankle) ripped away two steals and sent six shots packing in his return to action on Wednesday.

    Advice: Noel was moving around fine after missing Monday's game, which was the second of a back-to-back, so he should be good to go for Friday's game in Pheonix. He added five points (2-of-3 FG, 1-of-2 FT), five rebounds and two turnovers in his 30 minutes of floor time, but the defensive stats are why you have him on your roster. Taj Gibson returned to the second unit and finished with two points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block over 12 minutes; while Norvel Pelle saw just five minutes off the bench and contributed two points and one rebound in the loss.
