Denver Nuggets Fantasy Spin

Gary Harris (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Suns. Harris has missed each of the Nuggets last two games after injuring his hamstring in the second half of Monday's matchup. However, he was able to get through a lengthy pre-game warmup on Thursday, which bodes well. We should have an update on his status after Saturday morning's shootaround.

Phoenix Suns Fantasy Spin

Devin Booker (back) didn't practice on Friday and is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. Denver. Booker did not play Tuesday or Wednesday, and the fact that he still isn't practicing is certainly not encouraging. Assuming Booker is ruled out of Saturday's game as well, Josh Jackson, Kelly Oubre and De'Anthony Melton will continue to benefit from additional minutes.

NBA Betting Trends

Denver

The Nuggets are 11-3 against the spread in their last 14 games coming off an ATS win.

Phoenix

The Suns are 7-2 against the number in their last nine games coming off an ATS win.

Prediction

This is a true letdown spot for the Nuggets but back the Suns at your own risk. Denver is 9-2 against the spread in its last 11 games versus the Suns and is 4-1 ATS in its last five trips to Phoenix. While the Nuggets are also 4-1 against the number in their last five games overall, the Suns are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games and are 3-13 at the betting window in their last 16 home games versus an opponent with a winning road record.
