Nuggets vs Rockets Fantasy NBA: The Denver Nuggets will enter the game after losing to the Warriors despite a 26 points outing by Michael Porter Jr. On the other hand, the Houston Rockets will come in the contest after losing to the Clippers despite a 27 points outing by John Wall. More details about DEN vs HOU Dream11 will be given here.
Nuggets’ season: Denver has played some terrific basketball since March mostly because Nikola Jokic, their ace is now getting assistance from young Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray. Nuggets look in terrific form and have a strong defensive and unit from Guard to Center spot. They acquired Aaron Gordon during the trade deadline and bolstered their Forward position. However, since Murray will be out with an injury, the burden will shift to players like Morris, Campazzo, and Barton at the guard position. They are in the 4th spot in the NBA Standings for Western Conference.
Rockets’ season: Houston has broken up their roster and will be in the rebuild mode sans the James Harden era. They shipped Victor Oladipo and with their main players in John Wall and Eric Gordon constantly out, their makeshift roster is dependent upon Christian Wood and role players. The Rockets are the second-worst team in the Western Conference.

PFP(Projected Fantasy Points): 50
Jokic has revolutionized the Center position and his all-around chops have enabled him to lead Nuggets in PPG, RPG, APG, and SPG. Since the Nuggets have stepped up their game, Nikola has been able to relax but with Murray out, he will only get more touches. Jokic is an excellent pick-up as the Super Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Wood has had a breakout season but his exploits have gone unnoticed because of the state of the roster and a large number of trades. He got injured around midseason but has averaged 19.8 PPG and 8.9 RPG ever since he has come from the injury.
Michael Porter Jr.:
Porter has had a fairytale season after struggling with injuries in his young career. The 22-year-old looks like a future star and his skills have helped Nuggets become a tough team. His rebounding and scoring have been red-hot this month, with an average of 21.8 PPG and 7.9 RPG.
Kelly’s role has increased in Houston and so has his minutes. He has found a rhythm with the increased playing time and he is averaging an impressive 17.8 PPG, 7.9 RPG, and 1.1 SPG ever since he has donned the Rockets jersey.
Aaron Gordon(Since joining Nuggets): PPG: 11.2 RPG: 5.0 TPG: 1.3
Gordon’s scoring isn’t at a premium since coming to Denver but he is still adjusting to the system. The Forward has given them depth so the Nuggets will still savor the production he is generating right now.
Kevin Porter Jr.: PPG: 15.5 APG: 5.9 RPG: 3.8 TPG: 3.4 PFP: 32
Porter Jr. has been a revelation amidst a chaotic season for the Rockets. The guard’s ability to score and assist makes him a piece for the future and despite having some rough edges, he is a terrific talent at 20 years of age.
Jae’Sean Tate: PPG: 11.0 RPG: 5.4 SPG: 1.2 PFP: 22
