Denver Nuggets Roster

Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray (quadriceps) was previously listed as probable to play on Friday but has since been downgraded to questionable. Getting the downgrade in the afternoon before tipoff isn't too promising, especially after shootarounds happened. On top of that, with Murray's injury history, the Nuggets could opt to play it safe. If he doesn't suit up, Bruce Brown and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will be the best streaming options to throw into any fantasy lineups.
Denver Nuggets guard Bones Hyland (illness) has received the questionable tag with a non-COVID illness alongside Aaron Gordon. This comes as surprising news since he was listed as probable with hip soreness earlier in the same day. The downgrade with an entirely different ailment doesn't sound promising for his chances to suit up. If he can't give it a go, Bruce Brown Jr. will likely see more minutes off of the bench. He's been great in relief especially when Hyland hasn't played.
Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray and center Nikola Jokic are both considered doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Detroit Pistons. Both players have been sidelined the last few games due to health and safety protocols. Neither player has been cleared to return yet, so fantasy managers should prepare for them to miss another contest. Bruce Brown and De'Andre Jordan would likely both move into the starting five. Brown is the better streaming option, but both have some value with the Nuggets shorthanded. Fantasy managers should check back on Tuesday for another update.
Denver Nuggets forward Aaron Gordon (illness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Detroit Pistons. Gordon has missed each of the last three games due to a non-COVID related illness. The Nuggets would love to have him back with Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray doubtful to play due to health and safety protocols. The 27-year-old would see a significant increase in usage, assuming Jokic and Murray remain sidelined. Fantasy managers should check back on Tuesday for another update.
Denver Nuggets guard Bones Hyland led his side to victory Sunday against Dallas with a career-high 29 points. He logged a very productive 35 minutes off the bench, adding three rebounds and six assists to his line with one steal and one block. Hyland shot 10-for-21 for the night with a 3-for-8 record from deep and registered only one turnover. With a number of guys out, the team is currently lacking scoring options and Denver has relied a lot on Hyland lately. He's been getting 20.2 points per game in November and should continue to play a very active role on offense Tuesday against the Pistons if injuries don't clear up.
