Denver Nuggets Fantasy Spin
Gary Harris (hip) was a limited participant at Sunday's practice. He's slowly ramping up his workload, and he's beginning Week-3 of his loose 3-4 week timetable. It'll likely be another few weeks before he's back, which will translate to more minutes for Torrey Craig and Monte Morris, with Morris being the player to own in fantasy hoops.
San Antonio Spurs Fantasy Spin
DeMar DeRozan made 12-of-24 from the field for 28 points during a 108-101 loss to the Rockets on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal, two blocks and one turnover in 38 minutes. He had been very quiet coming into this game with each of his previous six games falling under his season average of 23.0 points per game. On the other hand, DeRozan continues to drop dimes at a shade under seven this month. However, he's kind of cold overall in fantasy as a top-75 player over his last 10, but he's still holding up as a top-40 player in standard leagues.
