Brandon Goodwin was claimed off waivers by DEN on Tuesday December 18.

Dec 19 - 4:04 AM

Tyreke Evans returned to action on Tuesday December 18.

Dec 19 - 4:04 AM

Juancho Hernangomez started and played 30 minutes despite dealing with an abdominal injury on Tuesday, and hit 3-of-8 shots for 12 points, six rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer in a win over the Mavericks.

Juancho is alternating good games with bad ones right now, and was probably not in very many lineups with just two games this week, in addition to the questionable status with the injury. The Nuggets go three times in each of the next two weeks, but also have a five-game week starting on January 7. If Hernangomez is still starting then, he'll become a hot pickup shortly after the New Year.
Dec 19 - 12:14 AM

Monte Morris came off the bench to hit 7-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals and just one turnover in 25 minutes of Tuesday's 126-118 win over the Mavs.

Morris has scored in double digits in seven straight games and all but one of his December contests, and is averaging 14.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 2.4 steals and 2.4 3-pointers on 52 percent shooting over his last five games. He was a tough play this week with just two games, and the Nuggets only play three times per week in the next two frames. But they go five times starting on January 7, and Morris could be a hot pickup for that one, assuming he's still cooking. But unfortunately for Morris, there's a decent chance Gary Harris will be back from his hip injury by then.
Dec 19 - 12:10 AM

Jamal Murray hit 10-of-18 shots and a 3-pointer on his way to 22 points, seven rebounds, a career-high 15 assists, a steal, a block and five turnovers in Tuesday's 126-118 win over the Mavericks.

We're not sure what got into Murray tonight with the dimes, but this was just the second time in his three-year career he's had at least 10 assists in a game, with the first one coming in his rookie year in the second-to-last game of the 2016-17 season. This was just his second points/assists double-double of his career, and maybe this game will spark him to go on an assists run. He hadn't had more than five of them in his previous five games, and this will go down as his best game of the young season. Murray's strong play has helped the Nuggets to a 21-9 record, good for the best record in the West.
Dec 19 - 12:05 AM

Nikola Jokic had his way with DeAndre Jordan on Tuesday, hitting 13-of-25 shots, two 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws for 32 points, 16 rebounds, four assists, three steals, a block and five turnovers in 35 minutes of the 126-118 win.

He didn't hit a single season high with tonight's stellar line, which should tell you what kind of season he's having for the Nuggets. And speaking of the Nuggets, they tied the franchise record for their best start to a season at 21-9 and have never sat alone in first place in the West this deep into a season. And Jokic is a big reason why the Nuggets (and his owner's fantasy teams) are doing so well this season. The Warriors are right behind the first-place Nuggets at 21-10, while the East's Raptors have the best record in the league at 23-9.
Dec 18 - 11:57 PM

Mason Plumlee started at power forward for the Nuggets on Tuesday and had 11 points, nine rebounds and three assists on 5-of-8 shooting in 34 minutes in the 126-118 win.

Plumlee's been helping to fill the hole left by the absence of Paul Millsap (toe), averaging 8.2 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.4 blocks on 53 percent shooting over his last five games. He's not a must-own player, especially this week when the Nuggets only have one more game on Dec. 22, but savvy owners will want to think about grabbing him prior to their five-game week starting January 7, assuming Millsap is still out.
Dec 18 - 11:52 PM

J.J. Barea played 21 minutes and hit 4-of-11 shots for 10 points, four rebounds and five assists in Tuesday's loss to the Nuggets.

He missed his last two games with an ankle injury but looked pretty good tonight. He might be worth a short-term look for as long as Dennis Smith Jr. is out with his wrist injury, but he's still day-to-day after missing six of his last seven games. And Jalen Brunson (8 points, 1 assist) has been starting in place of DSJ, making it tough to trust Barea from night to night.
Dec 18 - 11:47 PM

Luka Doncic hit just 5-of-15 shots, but also made three 3-pointers and hit 10-of-12 free throws for 23 points, six rebounds, 12 assists, a steal and just one turnover in 35 minutes of Tuesday's 126-118 loss to the Nuggets.

The rookie had shot it very well in his previous two games, but has hit just 40 percent of his shots over his last five games. Despite the poor shooting, he's cooking right now, averaging 19 points, 7.6 rebounds, 8.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.4 3-pointers during that stretch, and is one of the top contenders for Rookie of the Year. And he's only going to get better.
Dec 18 - 11:39 PM

Harrison Barnes hit 10-of-16 shots, 5-of-8 3-pointers and 5-of-6 free throws for 30 points, four rebounds, a steal, a block and zero turnovers in 34 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Nuggets.

That's an extremely efficient night for Harry B, who matched his season high of 30 points, which he also had against the Clippers on December 2. Barnes has scored in double digits in every game since October 29 and is averaging more than three 3-pointers per game in December. He's not rebounding the ball as well as he has in the past, grabbing five or fewer in each of his last eight games, and he hasn't been shooting it very well, but may have kicked off the start of a hot streak with tonight's line.
Dec 18 - 11:36 PM

Jeremy Lin hit 6-of-12 shots and 4-of-4 free throws for 16 points, three rebounds and four assists in 24 minutes of Tuesday's 118-110 win over the Wizards.

Lin's been quiet since returning from a back injury, but looked very good tonight. The Hawks, who messed around and accidentally won this one, are in tank/rebuilding mode, with an eye on Zion Williamson as the ultimate prize. Trae Young starts and gets most of the minutes for the Hawks, but Lin was playing well prior to his back injury. He's far from a must-own player, but is worth keeping an eye on after tonight's solid line, in case he's about to get hot.
Dec 18 - 11:25 PM

Alex Len came off the bench for 15 points, five rebounds and two blocks in Tuesday's win over the Wizards.

He had just four points and zero rebounds in his previous game and tonight came against the center-challenged Wizards. Additionally, Dewayne Dedmon is on fire, meaning Len's going to be quiet on most nights. Len belongs on waivers in most leagues, at least as long as Dedmon is starting and playing so well.
Dec 18 - 11:21 PM

Kevin Huerter hit 4-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 35 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Wizards.

Huerter was quiet in his last one with just four points, but has been playing well overall, despite tonight's poor field goal shooting. He's averaging 12.6 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.8 3-pointers on 49 percent shooting over his last five, and has been filling in nicely for Taurean Prince (ankle). Huerter is worth a look in most fantasy leagues as long as Prince is out, especially when the Hawks have a four-game week, like they do for two consecutive weeks starting on December 31. Unfortunately for Huerter, Prince might be back by then.
Dec 18 - 11:18 PM

Trae Young hit 5-of-11 shots and three 3-pointers for 19 points, three rebounds, four assists, a steal and five turnovers in 26 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Wizards.

Young has scored in double figures in five of his seven December games, but has recorded five or fewer assists in five of them, as well. He's also averaging more than four turnovers this month, and came into this one hitting just 37 percent of his shots in December. He usually does as much harm as he does good in fantasy, especially when he's not approaching double digits in assists.
Dec 18 - 11:12 PM

John Collins hit 7-of-14 shots, a 3-pointer and 5-of-6 3-pointers for 20 points, 13 rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Wizards.

He was in foul trouble tonight, or the minutes would have been higher, and Collins is on a tear right now. He's double-doubled in nine of his last 11 games and came into this one averaging 23.3 points, 12.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 3-pointers on 60 percent shooting from the floor, and 67 percent shooting from the line in the month of December. He's more than living up to the hype, so congratulations are in order if you drafted him and were able to stick with him through the foot injury that caused him to miss the first 15 games of the season.
