Denver Nuggets Fantasy Spin

Gary Harris (right hip) is being listed as "out" for Wednesday's game against the Magic. Harris suffered the hip injury just nine minutes into Monday's game and was ruled out pretty quickly after getting checked up in the locker room, which isn't a great sign. We still don't know the extent of his injury, as we're awaiting his MRI results, but it wouldn't be shocking to see him sit out a few games. Torrey Craig and Malik Beasley will be asked to pick up the slack in his absence, but it's tough to trust either of those guys in standard leagues.

Orlando Magic Fantasy Spin

Nikola Vucevic went off against the Suns during a 99-85 win on Friday, scoring 25 points with 15 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes. He made Deandre Ayton guard him away from the basket and obviously the rook had no answers for him. Vooch has enjoyed the West Coast trip over his last four games, averaging 26.5 points, 12.5 boards, 5.8 dimes, 1.0 steals, 1.5 blocks and 2.0 treys on a 56/42/89 shooting line. The Magic are on pace to make the postseason, which is something Vooch fantasy owners should be rooting for wholeheartedly.
