Denver Nuggets shooting guard/small forward Will Barton connected on nine of 17 shooting en route to 23 points, but it was not enough in the loss to the Mavericks. Barton also chipped in six boards with three assists to go along with a block and a steal for the full line. Barton has been off to a solid March with averages of 17.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.0 steals across six games and if and when the NBA resumes, Barton should continue to provide mid-round value for owners.
Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murrayconnected on 10-for-22 shooting from the floor and made three of 11 from three to record 25 points in the 16-point loss to the Mavericks on Wednesday. Murray did not get much help from his backcourt partner Gary Harris, who managed just eight points on 3-for-5 shooting across 25 minutes of action. Murray has been gaining some traction as of late and had been averaging 21.0 points and 6.0 assists over his previous three games.
Denver Nuggets power forward/center Nikola Jokic flirted a bit with a triple-double and was also efficient from the floor (7-for-10 shooting) in the loss to the Mavericks. Jokic finished the night with 14 points, 13 rebounds and added eight assists without any defensive numbers. Jokic had been struggling from the floor over his previous four games, so this was a nice change of direction for owners. With the NBA entering an interesting period, basketball fans are hoping for a quick turnaround and we can all hope that things get better around the globe sooner than later.
Denver Nuggets forward Jerami Grant had 19 points, six rebounds, three assists, one block, and one steal across 29 minutes of play during the 109-95 win over the Bucks on Monday. The 2014 pick has been maddeningly inconsistent this season, making it hard to measure him from a fantasy perspective. Evidence of this is the fact that he has scored in single digits in two of the past five games. The 25-year-old has the potential to be a great fantasy asset, but his tendency to have cold shooting nights at inopportune times really hurts fantasy owners. The Syracuse product has a chance to continue his productivity on Wednesday against a middle-tier Mavericks defense when it comes to opponent field goal percentage allowed.
Denver Nuggets forward Paul Millsap finished Monday's 109-95 win over the Bucks with 20 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, and one steal through 21 minutes of play. He also went 3-for-6 from deep. The 35-year-old has been statistically sporadic this season, scoring in double-digits for only the fourth time in the past eight games. Averaging 11.8 points per game, the La Tech product isn't as reliable in fantasy anymore as he may have been in the past. Most of that is solely because of his inconsistency. Millsap is a matchup-dependent start and he faces a middle-tier Mavericks defense when it comes to rebounding and opponent field goal percentage allowed on Wednesday. This adds some fantasy appeal for the veteran.
