FANTASY NEWS

Shut down for Summer League

Strawther hasn't suffered any injury but will sit out the remainder of the Summer League after impressing in his first two outings, averaging 28.5 points. The second-year forward will now allow younger and more inexperienced players to receive increased playing time while he focuses on working toward a more consistent role in Denver's rotation in 2024-25.

Set for Achilles surgery

The first-round draft pick out of Dayton suffered the injury in his first appearance for the Nuggets on Friday in the Las Vegas Summer League. He'll face a lengthy and arduous recovery process from surgery and is expected to miss the entire 2024-25 season, and his availability for Summer League in 2025 could also be affected. The Nuggets had been hopeful that Holmes would slot in as their top backup to Nikola Jokic during the upcoming season, but Dario Saric, Peyton Watson, DeAndre Jordan and Zeke Nnaji now look to be the top contenders to fill frontcourt minutes on the second unit.

Goes for 32 in SL

Strawther has been impressive offensively in two Summer League appearances, averaging 28.5 points per game. The Gonzaga product seems to be dealing with a minor ankle injury, so it wouldn't be surprising if he is shut down for the remainder of Summer League considering his performance to this point. Strawther could play his way into the rotation this year if he continues to produce offensively, especially with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope departing for Orlando.
