  • Nuggets' Peyton Watson: Available Tuesday

    Watson (thigh) has been cleared to play Tuesday against the Pelicans.

    Watson was initially added to the injury report as questionable due to a left thigh strain, but he feels strong enough to play if called upon. He hasn't factored into the rotation much this season, as his last game action dates back to Nov. 25 against the Clippers.

  • Nuggets' Peyton Watson: Questionable Tuesday

    Watson (thigh) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

    After missing the team's past 28 contests, Watson's injury status has officially improved to questionable for Tuesday's matchup. Even if the rookie forward is available to suit up against the Pelicans, it would not be surprising to see the Nuggets take it easier with Watson, making him an unappealing fantasy option for the time being.

    Watson finished Saturday's game against the Fort Wayne Mad Ants with 21 points (8-19 FG, 0-4 3PT, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, four steals and three blocks in 34 minutes.

    Watson stuffed the stat sheet in this one, leading his team in scoring, steals and blocks in a 152-129 loss. The rookie forward appeared in four of Denver's first six contests of the 2022-23 campaign, but he's obviously going to see plenty more action in the G League, at least early on.
