Ty Lawson will not play against the Warriors on Wednesday due to a sprained ankle.

He missed the last six games of the season after an injury on Apr. 4. Lawson is one of the fastest players in the NBA, but he does have his share of injuries. If not for his durability concerns, he'd be a top-15 pick in fantasy leagues. Aaron Brooks gets another start tonight.
Apr 16 - 9:21 PM

Wilson Chandler played through his groin injury on Tuesday and had seven points, six rebounds and a 3-pointer on 3-of-7 shooting.

If he's not 100 percent, it's easy to see him sitting out in Wednesday's finale, and Evan Fournier (9 points on 3-of-10 shooting) could step up if Chandler is out.
Apr 16 - 1:30 AM

Randy Foye hit just 2-of-12 shots and was 0-for-7 from downtown for 11 points, four rebounds, seven assists and four steals in a loss to the Clippers.

Had his shot been falling he would have had a monster line, but as it was, he was still effective at filling the stat sheet. Foye should play solid minutes again on Wednesday.
Apr 16 - 1:28 AM

Aaron Brooks had 19 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss.

He's been great filling in for Ty Lawson and all indications are that he'll get serious minutes again in Wednesday's finale.
Apr 16 - 1:26 AM

Timofey Mozgov left Tuesday's game briefly with a right knee injury, but returned to finish with 18 points, 11 rebounds and a block in a loss to the Clippers.

He's really turned it on over the last few weeks and his injury is no big deal. All indications are that he'll get solid minutes again in Wednesday's finale against the Warriors.
Apr 16 - 1:23 AM

Quincy Miller had 11 points, four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes of Tuesday's loss.

The Nuggets have nothing to play for and there's no reason Miller won't see heavy minutes and another start in Wednesday's finale against the Warriors.
Apr 16 - 1:21 AM

Kenneth Faried had 21 points and six rebounds on 7-of-12 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers.

The Nuggets have nothing to play for, but Faried is hot and may want to go out on a high note against the Warriors on Wednesday.
Apr 16 - 1:20 AM

Timofey Mozgov left Tuesday's game early with a right knee injury and went to the locker room, but was able to return a short time later.

He must have just knocked his knee, avoiding a serious injury. If you need Mozgov in your lineup tonight, a crisis looks to have been avoided.
Apr 15 - 10:58 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) is traveling for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers and is expected to play.

He suffered a knee injury on Saturday and has really struggled to stay healthy. Arthur's minutes will likely be capped around 20, so he's not a strong start on a two-game night.
Apr 14 - 4:48 PM

Ty Lawson (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Tuesday night.

He didn't even travel and that makes him almost a lock to be out for the season. Aaron Brooks has seen tremendous opportunity in the starting lineup and has been filling up the stat sheet, but he hasn't shot the ball well. In all likelihood, Lawson's season will finish with averages of 17.6 points, 3.5 boards, 8.8 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 triples. He'll still be a high pick in fantasy drafts next year despite some injury woes in the second half.
Apr 14 - 4:39 PM

Wilson Chandler is traveling with the team and is expected to play against the Clippers on Tuesday.

It was a surprise to see him in the lineup on Saturday, but he did leave the game with another injury and did not return. Chandler is likely looking at a game-time call and we probably won't know much until Tuesday night. There are only two games on Tuesday, so owners in daily leagues certainly should gamble on Chandler. Evan Fournier takes a hit.
Apr 14 - 4:35 PM

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw admitted on Saturday that JaVale McGee will have to battle Timofey Mozgov for the starting position next season.

"I told JaVale even before he had season-ending surgery, ‘Timo’s coming for you. It’s not a given that anything is going to be handed to you when you come back.’ " Shaw said. McGee was a wild disappointment this year, only making it through five games averaging 7.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks. However, Mozgov put together a very impressive run to end his 2013-14 campaign, as he's averaged 17.4 points and 9.6 rebounds over the last seven games. With how often McGee finds himself "Shaqtin' a fool," it would be far from surprising to see Mozgov overtake McGee for the starting gig. But for now, this is just something to file away for next year's draft.

Wilson Chandler hit 3-of-7 shots for nine points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes on Saturday in his return from a groin injury, but left the game and didn't return.

Not only did he leave the game, but he also left the bench and went to the locker room, presumably for treatment on his groin. And with nothing left to play for, signs are pointing to Chandler's season being over. Evan Fournier and Randy Foye look like strong plays the rest of the way, if that's the case.
Apr 13 - 12:50 AM

Evan Fournier hit 7-of-16 shots and three 3-pointers for 23 points, three rebounds and two assists in Saturday's win over the Jazz.

Fournier has hit double figures in three of his last four games, and is averaging 15.6 points and 2.8 3-pointers over his last five games. If you need threes, he should be a solid option over the Nuggets' final two games.
Apr 13 - 12:47 AM

Randy Foye hit 7-of-13 shots and three more 3-pointers for 26 points, four rebounds and six assists in Saturday's win over the Jazz.

Foye is tracking Dale Ellis for the franchise record of 192 3-pointers made, and currently sits at 186. He'll have to play well over Denver's final two games to catch Ellis, but the record is well within reach and Foye will keep firing away in hopes of catching him, making him an excellent fantasy option down the stretch.
