mlg009 -- Injuries forced me to include him in one weekly lineup, and I have him on the bench in my other weekly lineup league. At least he has 4 games to try and get more minutes in.

Have both and can't find a better replacement than Nurk on the wire that would help me with current matchup. News that Okafor is questionable is a bummer. Sixers running 2 bigs is probably best shot for Nurk to get more than 20 mins. Lol
11.2h
mlg009
With Jokic out until this weekend is anyone tempting fate and starting him in h2h's this week? Denver has a nice schedule this week but Nurkic might not even play 30 minutes COMBINED in all four games this week. This guy is a mess!

Even if he does get more minutes would it really matter with his current level of play? He's ranked 261 in per 36 minute stats

Would you cut Nurkic for Cody Zeller at this point? Not sure if there is upside anymore with Nurk unless Malone changes minutes allotment or a trade.

Dropped him for Henson. I know Kidd is unpredictable, but Malone isn't much better, if better at all. I'm willing to take my chances at this point.

Have both Nurk and Jokic. Jokic gets hurt and Malone doesn't even play this guy 20 mins. Malone supposed to be a decent coach? Claim to fame is what--How he didn't have the worst record when he was coaching the Kings a few yrs back?

I don't own Nurkic (Jokic owner here). What most dissapoints me about Mike Malone is they feed Jameer (old AF) Nelson 17 mins within the first half. I realize diff positions but its seriously messed up how he is dishing time out in Denver right now.

Patience is wearing thin already. The big guy has been a drag and minutes are dropping by the week. Does it make sense to hold in a 12 team, 15 player/t, 9-cat league or would my team be better served streaming guys like Pat Patterson, Henson or Courtney Lee?

Thanks, Kyle. The only others I could drop would be Zeller or Covington. But Bogut would seem like the best drop.

If it's between Nurkic and Bogut, I'd pick up Nurkic (though maybe not using a waiver priority position). Nurkic has a higher upside and Bogut may get moved if Dallas rebuilds, from what I've read.
14.2d
#19032
Nurkic hit the wire. Worth dropping Bogut for him? Really just worried about the crowded frontcourt and his drag on my efficiency (fg, ft, a/t ratio). I'm already #1 in points in my league so don't really need Nurkic's points and dimes are very important in our league since we have a/t as a category. But then with Dallas heading into rebuilding mode, worried about Bogut's declining role. Any advice?

VCNasta -- Based on the minutes/production they're all currently getting, I'd want Lopez and Gordon right now, but I'm not sure I trust Lopez's big minutes over the last four games, though the Bulls are on a winning streak, so they might make a point to keep him out there a lot in the short-term. Tough call, and I think it comes down to who you think will be better down the line this season, Nurkic or Lopez? I would usually lean toward keeping Nurkic's potential over Lopez's steady production, but that is not necessarily the right choice here. The Nuggets frontcourt situation looks like it may remain muddied for a while longer. We're essentially waiting for an injury or trade to help clear things up, and who knows when/if one of those things happens.

2 young potentially studs in Jok and Nurk but both play the same position. Imo, DEN would be best served by trying to trade one of them before the team/coach ends up ruining whatever value is left for either of these 2. Only other way I see this turning out alright is if they turn Nurk into a PF. Don't think he has the mobility to guard opposing stretch 4s nor the range/game to play away from the ball.

the Bosnian Bear has been pretty on point with BBM projections so far. It's definitely helped me now after I reached for him draft day. There's breakout potential in a 3rd year for a player, but I think there still needs to be time to see how Mike Malone runs his lineups and how Nurk and Jokic are adjusting playing together.

Let's get some love for Nurkic on these projections. He's an animal. You've said you don't want to be reactionary, but then why are some guys value (e.g. Klay and Booker) seeing value slashed by .2 or more overnight but a guy who has been outperforming in all rates/36 like Nurkic not getting the big bump?

JSquints - I get your point, but we also don't want to be too reactionary with changing the season-long projections. I gave my personal opinion as to who I would rather have in H2H. Given the minutes Pau has been getting and Nurkic's production, I know I'd want Nurkic right now.

You have Pau projected 20 spots higher than Nurk per game and 45 spots in total value. But you would absolutely take Nurk in a straight up trade?

I think they CAN play together but it's not maximizing Jokic's skill at all. Nurk isn't really affected but Jokic can't really operate as the great playmaker he is when Nurkic is also there clogging things up. I love them both but I feel like they're wasting Jokic playing them together. Starting them and then playing them 8 min a game or so together would be fine and that's what I hope Malone ends up doing.

This double big thing is a ruse, both Jokic and Nurkic are great centers, too slow to play side by side though. Something's gonna give.

Davis was toasting everybody tonight. I think the part of the thought process was to just keep throwing fresh bodies at him. Faried is still a capable player that will be getting playing time. I suspect at some point this season there is a good chance he will either get hurt or traded which should open up more frontcourt minutes

really? Nurk was doing alright I think against NOR frontline during the 1st 3 qtrs. Jok i see had 4 TOs. Interesting that DEN went small.

2/8 at the line tonight tho...one thing with Nurkic is things really seem to get in his head. When he struggles he starts really rushing shots even more than he usually does (1/8 fg tonight), turning it over, missing FTs, etc.
48.0d
joshlloyd48
Last season he took 99 FTA and he has already taken 42 in preseason, converting at 81%, so while five games is small, it's half of his total attempts from last season and looks like he has improved significantly. Maybe it's a tad optimistic, but it's safe to say he has improved

What makes BBM think Nurkic is going to shoot .702 this season? At best his form over the last 2 years (.616 and .636). indicates mid 600's which allows for some improvement. I suspect he's going to be a big FT drain this season with extra minutes.

Thanks john. Lots of talk about Nurkic and Jokic. Is Jokic really that much more desirable or just a lot of hype? razy one is targeted at 2n round and the other at like 10 (Nurkic)

Gobert all day here. Nurkic is looking good, but Gobert has second round upside - especially if he keeps making his FTs.
