Timofey Mozgov C DEN 4 Months

Timofey Mozgov could end up starting at center to begin the 2014-15 season, according to the Denver Post.

JaVale McGee broke his leg and J.J. Hickson tore his ACL to end their seasons, but Mozgov may have earned his way into the first unit even when those two come back healthy. At best, he'll likely be in a timeshare, so he'll only be worthy of a pick in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.

Timofey Mozgov left Tuesday's game briefly with a right knee injury, but returned to finish with 18 points, 11 rebounds and a block in a loss to the Clippers.

He's really turned it on over the last few weeks and his injury is no big deal. All indications are that he'll get solid minutes again in Wednesday's finale against the Warriors.

Timofey Mozgov left Tuesday's game early with a right knee injury and went to the locker room.

Since this game means nothing to the Nuggets, it would be surprising to see Mozzy return to action.

Timofey Mozgov, who had 23 points, 29 rebounds and three blocks on Friday, double-doubled again on Saturday, but had just 11 points, 10 rebounds and zero blocks.

It's hard to be disappointed with a double-double, but he wasn't nearly as fun to own tonight as he was 24 hours ago. He should finish up strong, so keep rolling him out there and hope for the best.

Timofey Mozgov set an NBA season-high 29 boards against the Warriors on Thursday to go with 23 points, three assists, one steal and three blocks.

The Nuggets owned the glass and won the battle of the boards 63-38, including 25-6 on the offensive ends. Mozgov played a season-high 43 minutes tonight, which was a bit of a surprise since a lot of teams have gone small against the Warriors. Tonight's game might change that strategy, but the Nuggets are actually playing well with big wins over the Warriors and Rockets in a road back-to-back set. As for Mozgov, he's a must-own player the rest of the way with six nice games in a row.

Timofey Mozgov (illness) tied a career-high with 23 points in the Nuggets' 94-92 loss to the Grizzlies on Monday, hitting 9-of-15 shots (5-of-7 FTs) with 10 rebounds and one block in 32 minutes.

Mozgov has been a must-own player for a bit now, though explosions like this aren't necessarily in the cards on most nights. Ty Lawson was quiet with eight points, five boards and six assists, Randy Foye scored 13 points with nine boards, four assists, two steals and a three, and Kenneth Faried posted 17 points, eight boards, three steals and a block in the loss.

Timofey Mozgov (illness) played 21 minutes against the Spurs on Friday with seven points, eight boards, one steal and one block.

He was reported out of the lineup during shootaround and felt well enough to play. Mozgov is really the only true center on the roster, but he's still only playing around 20 minutes per night. He's a solid player to own in standard leagues for his blocks and solid percentages.

Timofey Mozgov (illness) will play against the Spurs on Friday.

The team had him listed as out back at morning shootaround and now they seem to have changed their minds. Of course, they are absolutely gutted as far as frontcourt depth goes, so Mozgov might just be giving all he can in this game. He'll likely start with guys like Jan Vesely, Darrell Arthur and Anthony Randolph also helping out.

Timofey Mozgov is listed as out for Friday's game vs. the Spurs due to an illness.

He came down with his illness yesterday and it doesn't sound like the Nuggets are going to have him. That spells big trouble for them with J.J. Hickson (knee) out for the year, so it'll be a small-ball lineup. Wilson Chandler is also listed as out and Jan Vesely is doubtful. In other words, it it going to be a lot of Ty Lawson, Aaron Brooks, Randy Foye, Evan Fournier, Kenneth Faried, Darrell Arthur and Anthony Randolph tonight vs. the Spurs. Randolph or Mozgov are expected to start.

Timofey Mozgov neared a double-double in Monday's blowout loss, scoring 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting with nine rebounds and one block in 32 minutes.

With J.J. Hickson out for the year this is in the ballpark of what owners can expect on most nights. That's good enough for low-end late-round value with a hint of upside so give him a look if you need a big. Kenneth Faried bounced back with 11 and 11 to go with two steals in the loss.
