Mason Plumlee started and double-doubled vs. the Grizzlies on Monday with 12 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 35 minutes.
Advice: He saw extended time next to Nikola Jokic and that could continue depending on the matchup. With Paul Millsap (toe) expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks, coach Malone said he might alternate Plumlee and Trey Lyles as the starters, but Plumlee offers the better upside, especially if you're punting FT%. Give him a look if you're targeting rebounds, assists, FG% and defensive stats.

Advice: Trey Lyles will head back to the bench. With Paul Millsap (toe) expected to miss 4-6 weeks, coach Malone mentioned that he might alternate between Plumlee and Lyles as the starting PFs on a game-to-game basis.

Advice: The Nuggets are going to have to turn to more lineups with Plumlee and Nikola Jokic to offset the lack of depth at forward.

Advice: He continues to see more time next to Nikola Jokic, and that lineup combo could be used with a higher frequency with Paul Millsap (foot) getting hurt.
