Nuggets to 'talk to different doctors' to decide on plan for Paul Millsap (wrist)

Denver Nuggets head coach Mike Malone said that the team would discuss forward Paul Millsap's options to determine the best plan of action in dealing with his left wrist injury.

What It Means:

Some reports have suggested that Millsap will undergo surgery -- one that would hold him out two-to-three months. But there's still a possibility that he just rehabs the injury while remaining out for an extended time. Either way, Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, Trey Lyles and Juan Hernangomez figure to see heavy minutes at the power forward spot.

numberFire's models project Millsap to average 21.8 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.1 assists a night over 22 games the rest of the season.

Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic scores season-high 29 in win over Nets

Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic put up 29 points, 15 rebounds, four blocks, three assists and one steal in Friday's 127-125 win over the Brooklyn Nets.

What It Means:

Not only did Nurkic reach a season-high in points, but he also managed to match his high of four blocks on the other end. With the Nets going small for large parts of the day, the big man feasted offensively and impacted the game defensively. It was against a poor team, but Nurkic showed what he's capable of doing on any given night.

At $7,000 on Friday's afternoon-inclusive slate, Nurkic returned 65.5 FanDuel points for a value of 9.36 FD points per $1,00. The big man is projected for 29.4 FD points against the Washington Wizards on the second half of a back-to-back Saturday night.

Damian Lillard scores 34 points for Trail Blazers in matinee

Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard scored 34 points with 4 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, and 3 turnovers on 10-of-19 field goals (10-of-11 free throws) and 4-of-6 3-pointers during Friday's 127-125 matinee road win over the Brooklyn Nets.

What It Means:

Lillard has now made 10 free throws in two of his last three games, and he's up to 25.2 points per game for the season while making 40.9 percent of his shots from the field. The Trail Blazers face the Wizards in Washington on Saturday for the second half of the back-to-back set.

numberFire's models projected Lillard to score 41.7 FanDuel points on Friday, but he topped that with an impressive 55.3-point performance versus the Nets.

76ers' Ben Simmons (elbow) out Saturday versus Magic

Philadelphia 76ers forward Ben Simmons will not play on Saturday, reports NBA.com's David Aldridge.

What It Means:

Simmons is dealing with elbow inflammation so he'll take a seat to rest. With him sidelined for the first time this season, Dario Saric will play the majority of minutes at power forward as Robert Covington could slide over to play some minutes there as Timothe Luwawu sees extra run on the wing.

According to our models, Simmons was projected for 32.6 minutes and 36.5 FanDuel points prior to being ruled out for Saturday's matchup with the Orlando Magic.

Wizards' John Wall (left knee, questionable) had an MRI on Friday

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall (left knee, questionable) had an MRI on Friday and the results have not yet been revealed.

What It Means:

It's somewhat concerning news for owners, as Wall has been dealing with a knee issue for most of November, but hopefully the Wizards are just erring on the side of caution. He's considered questionable for Saturday against the Portland Trail Blazers. Tim Frazier would draw the start for Washington if Wall can't play.

Wall is averaging 41.6 FanDuel points across 16 games this season. Over the remainder of the year, numberFire's models project him to record 26.1 points, 11.0 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 1.3 3-pointers, and 4.0 turnovers per game on 44.4 percent from the field and 32.9 percent from beyond the arc.

Sorry, there are no more blurbs for this feed.
