UPDATE: Millsap is listed as questionable to play in Saturday’s game vs. the Thunder. Jamal Murray is off the injury report, so he’s a full go.

Denver Nuggets PF/C Paul Millsap was unable to return to Thursday night’s game vs. the Portland Trail Blazers due to quad tightness. He was originally listed as questionable to play due to a foot injury, but was available and started the game. He finished with six points, five rebounds and two assists in 15 minutes prior to exiting.

Fantasy Basketball Analysis: Denver Nuggets PF/C Paul Millsap

The Nuggets don’t play until Saturday vs. the Thunder, so we’ll have to wait and see what Millsap’s designation is some time today. If he’s going to miss the game, I’d imagine Jerami Grant will fill in for him in the starting lineup. Grant played 31 minutes off the bench vs. Portland and finished with 20 points and five rebounds, draining five 3-point shots. He’d make for a very nice value play in a revenge spot vs. his former team in OKC. Grant is also worth an add as a streamer in fantasy basketball season-long leagues.
