Joffrey Lauvergne (illness) will be available to play Wednesday vs. the Hornets, as expected.
"He spent most of the day in bed, hydrating, just getting some rest," head coach Billy Donovan said. "I'm sure he feels a lot better than he did last when it first happened last night." Lauvergne may not see his typical 14.4-minute workload tonight due to the illness, but that means very little in fantasy hoops. Jan 4 - 6:42 PM

Joffrey Lauvergne (illness) did not participate during shootaround, but he's expected to be available to play Wednesday vs. Charlotte.

Lauvergne is averaging just 5.4 points, 3.7 boards and not much else in 14.4 minutes per game this season, so his playing status is more or less irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Jan 4 - 1:50 PM

Joffrey Lauvergne started the second half on Sunday with Steven Adams (ankle) unavailable, finishing with four points and a season-high 11 rebounds in 18 minutes.

Lauvergne might find himself with another start if Adams can't return to face Dwight Howard and the Hawks on Monday. It doesn't help that it's a road game in Atlanta. Lauvergne will be a possible punt-play in DFS if Adams sits out, but that's about it.

Joffrey Lauvergne got hot off the bench vs. Denver on Friday, hitting 6-of-8 shots for a season-high 15 points with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, one steal and one block in 18 minutes.

Steven Adams' foul trouble resulted in more minutes for Lauvergne, who has yet to score double-digit points in consecutive games this season. He's shooting the lights out lately but doesn't get enough playing time to be worth adding in standard leagues.

Joffrey Lauvergne scored 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist, one block, one steal and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Lakers on Tuesday.

Lauvergne played 26 minutes in the previous game against Indiana, so he's been taking a few minutes away from guys like Enes Kanter and Domantas Sabonis. We'll keep an eye on his workload, but Lauvergne is now on the radar in very deep leagues after a couple of promising performances. He likely needs an injury in front of him to help standard-league owners.

Joffrey Lauvergne scored 13 points in 14 minutes against the Nets on Friday, adding four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

This actually wasn't all garbage time with only 1.7 minutes coming in the fourth quarter. Lauvergne hasn't been a factor for most of the season, so we'll need to see him do it again.

Joffrey Lauvergne scored 15 points off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks, adding six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

King Joffrey is a very capable big, but his minutes will be limited while the Thunder are at full strength -- Steven Adams sat out tonight with a minor ankle issue. Ersan Ilyasova and Domantas Sabonis are getting the bulk of the minutes at the four and Adams and Enes Kanter will each have sizable roles, so Lauvergne could be the odd man out.

Joffrey Lauvergne exited Tuesday's scrimmage after being poked in the eye.

We'll go ahead and throw Lauvergne on the injury report for now, but it would be shocking to see this to turn into an issue that impacts his status for opening night. Lauvergne is going to be fighting for minutes with the likes of Enes Kanter, Domatas Sabonis and Ersan Ilyasova this season, so it'll be extremely tough for him to earn enough minutes to make a difference in most settings.

The Nuggets have traded Joffrey Lauvergne to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Nuggets will receive two future second round picks from the Thunder, while Lauvergne will join a crowded frontcourt in Oklahoma City. Lauvergne could have some value in deeper fantasy leagues, but he won't have much value in standard leagues unless Steven Adams and/or Enes Kanter suffer an injury.

Joffrey Lauvergne did nothing with his 10.5 minutes of action in France's 87-66 loss to Australia on Saturday, finishing with no points and three rebounds.

Lauvergne could hold some fantasy appeal if he were moved to another team, but there just aren't enough minutes for him in Denver. As an aside, Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders reports that the Nuggets have guaranteed Lauvergne's deal for the 2016-17 season.

Joffrey Lauvergne (back) is not expected to play on Wednesday against the Blazers.

That means there should be more of the frontcourt combo of Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic. Both should be very attractive plays tonight in what should be an up-tempo game. Lauvergne probably won't be a big factor for the Nuggets next season.
Wed, Apr 13, 2016 02:34:00 PM

Joffrey Lauvergne (lower back soreness) is probable to play Wednesday vs. Portland.

Lauvergne will more than likely be out there for Denver's regular-season finale, but he's just too inconsistent to depend upon in standard settings.
Tue, Apr 12, 2016 04:39:00 PM

Joffrey Lauvergne looked great on Saturday, scoring 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting with six boards and two assists in 24 minutes.

Kenneth Faried only played 16 minutes and the Nuggets were missing Darrell Arthur (knee), but King Joffrey looked great tonight. Lauvergne has played well at times this season, but the frontcourt is simply too crowded for us to get behind an add outside of deeper leagues. Just keep an eye on him.
Sun, Apr 3, 2016 12:14:00 AM

Joffrey Lauvergne scored nine points in 25 minutes against the Lakers on Friday, adding 10 rebounds and no turnovers.

He basically played all of his minutes at power forward, which is great news for his playing time. Lauvergne will need Kenneth Faried (back) to stay out of the lineup and he's still No. 3 on the pecking order for their foreign bigs.
Sat, Mar 26, 2016 01:55:00 AM

Joffrey Lauvergne (nasal wall fracture) is probable for Monday vs. the Cavs.

He's fully expected to be out there, and the probable designation is really just a formality. Even with Kenneth Faried (back) out, Lauvergne is an unappealing asset with Nikola Jokic's emergence and Jusuf Nurkic now backing him up.
