Player AlarmsView All
W. Barton - SG
Barton scored 20 points (9-17 FG, 2-7 3Pt) while adding four rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes during Monday's 114-105 win over the Celtics.
It's only the second time in eight March contests the 28-year-old wing has scored at least 20 points. Barton's production has been inconsistent since he returned from a groin injury in mid-January, but he remains a key secondary cog in the Nuggets' offense as the club tries to topple the Warriors at the top of the Western Conference standings.

N. Jokic - C
Jokic scored a team-high 21 points (9-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt) while adding 13 rebounds, seven assists, three blocks and two steals in 36 minutes during Monday's 114-105 win over the Celtics.
With the road victory, the Nuggets have clinched a playoff spot for the first time since 2012-13, and they're now tied with the Warriors for the top seed in the Western Conference, with 13 games left to go. Jokic's career-best numbers have been a huge part of the team's success, and he figures to keep seeing big minutes and putting up elite fantasy numbers down the stretch given what's on the line for Denver.

J. Parker - SF
Parker scored a team-high 19 points (8-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding seven rebounds, three steals, an assist and a block in 30 minutes off the bench during Monday's 116-95 loss to the Jazz.
In addition to leading the Wizards' offense, Parker also paced the team in boards. The 24-year-old forward is now averaging 17.7 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.2 three-pointers and 0.8 steals through 10 games in March.
Added 1:59 am (EST)
B. Beal - SG
Beal scored 15 points (4-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding two rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes during Monday's 116-95 loss to the Jazz.
It's only the third time all season that Beal has failed to drain a three-pointer. The All-Star guard was due for a quiet night after posting back-to-back 40-point efforts, but the loss was a devastating one for the Wizards' playoff chances -- the team now sits 4.5 games back of eighth place in the Eastern Conference, with 11 games left on their schedule and two other teams to leapfrog.
Added 1:55 am (EST)
R. Gobert - C
Gobert scored 14 points (6-6 FG, 2-3 FT) while adding 14 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal in 32 minutes during Monday's 116-95 win over the Wizards.
He took full advantage of the relatively thin Washington frontcourt, recording his 56th double-double of the season -- putting Gobert one back of Andre Drummond for the NBA lead, and two shy of his own career high. Utah has a playoff spot all but locked up but still has plenty of room to rise in the standings and secure home-court advantage in at least the first round, so look for Gobert to get plenty of minutes down the stretch.
Added 1:49 am (EST)
D. Mitchell - SG
Mitchell scored a team-high 19 points (8-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt) while adding two assists, a rebound, a steal and a block in 32 minutes during Monday's 116-95 win over the Wizards.
The second-year guard saw his streak of games with at least 20 points end at six, but he extended his streak with at least 19 to 17 contests. Aside from a slight uptick in shot volume, Mitchell has been the same player in 2018-19 he was last season, but that's been good enough to propel the Jazz into the playoff picture in the tight Western Conference.
Added 1:43 am (EST)
D. Sabonis - PF
Sabonis produced just seven points, seven rebounds, one assist, and one block in 26 minutes during Monday's 106-98 loss to Portland.
Sabonis was ineffective Monday, finishing the game with just seven points in 26 minutes. It was his lowest scoring game in more than six weeks and came at the worst possible time for owners entrenched in their fantasy playoffs. He is generally much better than this and will look to bounce back Tuesday when the Pacers travel to Los Angeles to face the Clippers.
Added 1:28 am (EST)
B. Bogdanovic - SF
Bogdanovic had 15 points (6-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three steals, two rebounds, and two assists in 28 minutes during Monday's 106-98 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Bogdanovic had three steals for just the sixth time this season, adding 15 points in 28 minutes Monday. That also makes two straight games without a three-pointer for Bogdanovic who has been one of the more consistent scorers from beyond the arc this season. He is the 90th ranked player this season and continues to be a major part of their offensive structure. The loss of Victor Oladipo has certainly benefitted Bogdanovic and he should continue to put up similar numbers down the stretch.
