Nuggets vs Magic Fantasy NBA: The Denver Nuggets will enter the game after beating the Clippers rallying around a 23 points outing by Jamal Murray. Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic will come into the game after losing to Jazz in a game where Wendell Carter Jr. collected 19 points and 12 rebounds. A lineup related to DEN vs ORL Dream11 will be given here.
Nuggets’ season: Denver began the season on a slow note but has managed to muster some wins since February courtesy of some elite play by Nikola Jokic, Michael Porter, and Jamal Murray. They are in great shape as Michael has hit strides for a couple of months and the roster has come along well recently plus the inclusion of Aaron Gordon will make things harder for their opponents.
Magic’s season: Magic is rebuilding right now and trading 3 of their starters in Vucevic, Fournier, and Gordon, which means that they will work on acquiring young talent, because of which they acquired Wendell Carter Jr. from the Bulls. For the Magic, the team remains depleted on several fronts but has competed on both ends of the floor.

PFP(Projected Fantasy Points): 50
Jokic has had a record-breaking season and he is the engine that keeps the Nuggets ticking. His all-around offensive abilities allow him to be one of the most potent weapons and he is surely having an MVP-like campaign. Jokic is an excellent pick-up as the Super Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Michael Porter Jr.:
Porter’s career has also been dampened by injuries but he has shown huge promises as a young player. He still has a lot of time left and barring injuries, he can become an elite SF. He is averaging 21.2 PPG and 7.8 RPG for the last 5 games.
Wendell Carter Jr.
Carter was shipped from the Bulls to Magic and he has done a remarkable job since he has arrived. Carter is yet to live up to the expectations placed upon him but the fresh start can pave way for his ascension. He has averaged 13.3 PPG, 8.7 RPG, and 1.3 BPG since he has come to the Magic.
Jamal has shown huge improvements on the offensive side of the floor and has also improved defensively. Murray has seen his scoring down in comparison to February, but he has still managed 4 20+ points out of the last 5 ones.
Terrence Ross: PPG: 16.0 RPG: 3.4 SPG: 1.1 TPG: 1.7 PFP: 29
Ross’s role increase in the wake of the large amount of trades and he can adopt the role of the primary scorer for this squad. He has averaged 15.3 PPG since last 3 games and may take some time getting to his normal self after missing time with injury.
Will Barton: PPG: 12.4 RPG: 4.1 APG: 3.1 TPG: 1.7 PFP: 26
Barton is a wiry two-way player who has given a lot of substance to his squad. The springy Will will be key with the NBA Playoffs drawing near.
Chuma Okeke: PPG: 6.2 RPG: 3.9 PFP: 23
The inexperienced Forward has risen through recently and has taken advantage of starting at the spot vacated by Aaron Gordon. He is averaging 15.6 PPG and 6.2 RPG since the last 5 games.
Aaron Gordon(Since joining Nuggets): PPG: 11.0 RPG: 4.0 SPG: 1.7 PFP: 35
Paul Millsap: PPG: 9.6 RPG: 4.9 PFP: 20
