Timofey Mozgov was shut down against the Rockets on Wednesday with one point, six rebounds and four fouls in 19 minutes.
Foul trouble was a factor and Dwight Howard made him look pretty bad. He has hit a really bad rough patch lately, but both of those games came against the Rockets. Mozgov gets a date with the Clippers on Friday and hopefully he doesn't end up on a Blake Griffin highlight again. All these negatives aside, he's still worth owning in standard leagues.

Timofey Mozgov double-doubled in Sunday's loss to the Spurs, finishing with 11 points, 13 boards and two blocks in 24 minutes.

He did shoot just 4-of-12 from the field and struggled with foul trouble, but owners can't complain about this production. JaVale McGee (tibia) is expected to miss significant time, so Mozgov is locked in as the starting center and should be a double-double threat every time he plays.
Dec 14 - 10:52 PM

Timofey Mozgov had some foul trouble on Saturday, finishing with no points, four boards, one assist and five fouls in 14 minutes.

Ouch. He had double-digit rebounds in three straight before tonight and Dwight Howard usually causes some problems for centers, so he gets a pass here. Mozgov is still worth owning in most leagues.
Dec 13 - 11:38 PM

Timofey Mozgov double-doubled during a 96-84 loss on Sunday with 14 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks in 33 minutes.

The Nuggets are going to need to get all they can out of Mozgov because they're extremely thin right now. He should be able to put up a handful of double-doubles with some blocks, so make sure he's in your lineup.
Dec 7 - 6:44 PM

Timofey Mozgov played 21 minutes against the Wizards on Friday with six points, six boards, one steal and two blocks.

He picked up two quick fouls in the first quarter and the Nuggets were down 30 late in the game, so he gave way to JaVale McGee in garbage time. Mozgov should be better and his minutes will likely be close to 30 most nights.
Dec 5 - 9:57 PM

Timofey Mozgov scored 18 points with 13 boards, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer against the Suns on Wednesday.

That triple is not a misprint and it was his the fifth of his career and first of the season. Mozgov's role is solidified with JaVale McGee (leg) out and Jusuf Nurkic not getting minutes. He should be a top-100 player for the foreseeable future and should be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 27 - 2:46 AM

Timofey Mozgov got into foul trouble but still finished Sunday's ugly road victory with 13 points, 13 rebounds, one steal, one block and one turnover in 30 minutes.

This was Mozgov's fourth double-double of the season and the defensive contribution was a welcome sight, especially since L.A. hasn't given up many steals or blocks to their opponents this season. He's a useful source of the typical big man stats rebounds, FG percentage and blocks, but don't expect much more.
Nov 24 - 12:40 AM

Timofey Mozgov scored five points wit four rebounds and three blocks in 26 minutes during a 117-97 win over the Pelicans on Friday.

He did get into some foul trouble, but garbage time was the bigger reason why his minutes were so low tonight. Mozgov posted solid averages of 8.7 points, 6.7 boards and 1.2 blocks on 51.5 percent from the field in his last 10 games. He's worth owning in all standards even with JaVale McGee playing well tonight.
Nov 22 - 1:52 AM

Timofey Mozgov played 36 minutes and scored a season-high 17 points to go along with seven rebounds and three blocks in Wednesday's win over the Thunder.

Mozzy blew up for 14 points and 11 boards in 40 minutes on Monday, but owners may have left him on the bench in weekly leagues, as production and minutes were a bit of a problem before Monday. Hopefully the Nuggets are ready to roll with him night-in and night-out, so make sure he's not available in your league now that he's getting all those minutes.
Nov 20 - 3:11 AM

Timofey Mozgov logged a whopping 40 minutes in Monday's road win over the Cavs, double-doubling with 14 points, 11 boards, one steal and one block.

Perhaps Brian Shaw is done experimenting with JaVale McGee (eight minutes) and Jusuf Nurkic (inactive), but one big-minute outing isn't enough to carve that into stone. Still, Mozgov's game translates well to fantasy and after a night like this he should be owned in most, if not all 12-team leagues.
Nov 17 - 10:13 PM

Timofey Mozgov put up eight points and six rebounds as the Nuggets fell to the Knicks on Sunday.

Mozgov is currently only averaging 21 minutes per game this season, to go with 7.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks. He's competing for minutes with JaVale McGee and Jusuf Nurkic, and while Mozzy is the guy to own out of the group, he's far from a must-start option.
Nov 16 - 6:11 PM

Timofey Mozgov had six points, seven rebounds and no blocks in 22 minutes on Wednesday.

His minutes have been all over the board this season and coach Brian Shaw can't seem to figure out how to manage this team effectively. Mozzy had seven points, 16 rebounds and three blocks on Sunday, but got this week off to a dreadful start tonight. Ty Lawson is the only sure bet right now, and he's been slowed by injuries. Mozzy is still probably worth holding until Shaw figures this out, but owners should expect inconsistency for the time being. And the problem is not JaVale McGee, who played just four minutes tonight.
Nov 13 - 1:22 AM

The Nuggets lost on Sunday despite getting seven points, three blocks and a season-high 16 rebounds from Timofey Mozgov.

Mozgov's career-high is 29 rebounds, which gives an idea of his upside in that department. His solid play earned him 36 minutes tonight, while JaVale McGee had just five points and three rebounds in 15 minutes, but this is a position battle which could easily irritate Mozgov's fantasy owners for a long time.
Nov 10 - 12:04 AM

Timofey Mozgov was quiet again in Friday's lightly contested loss to the Cavs, scoring just five points with only five rebounds in 21 minutes.

It's hard to jump all over Mozgov when the Nuggets are a dumpster fire these days and everybody appears to be frustrated with one another. J.J. Hickson's suspension just ended tonight, too, adding another layer of complication to the situation. Mozgov is usually pretty consistent with his minutes, but we'd understand if you wanted to move on. Just realize that once the drama clears that he could be a nice No. 2 center play.
Nov 8 - 4:35 AM

Timofey Mozgov played just 11 minutes and had seven points, one rebound and a block in Wednesday's ugly loss.

Mozgov looked more like Tina Fey than a basketball player tonight, but JaVale McGee had just nine points and two rebounds in 13 minutes, and Jusuf Nurkic had six points, five boards and two blocks in 13 minutes. It's starting to look like Brian Shaw doesn't know what he's doing, but it's also possible a three-way timeshare is happening before our eyes at center. Don't cut Mozzy just yet, but get him out of your starting lineup if you can.
