Description: Memphis center Kosta Koufos has averaged 33 minutes, 7.5 points, 13 rebounds and 2.5 blocks over the last two games.
Insight: Koufos moved into the starting lineup in place of Marc Gasol, who is out indefinitely with a sprained MCL, two games ago. Koufos won't duplicate Gasol's passing or scoring numbers but he could soften the blow in rebounds and blocks for fantasy owners.

Description: Denver center Kosta Koufos has blocked 22 shots over his last eight games. He tied a season high with five rejections Saturday against the Bobcats and also had a season-best 16 points on 8-10 shooting in the game.
Insight: Koufos is blocking nearly two shots per game (1.9) and has the 11th most blocks in the NBA with 50. He doesn't do much else that is fantasy-worthy (7.2 ppg, 6.3 rpg) but his blocks make him a factor in deeper leagues.

Description: Denver center Kosta Koufos will start Friday's game against Indiana. Koufos missed Wednesday's loss to Atlanta because of an illness.
Insight: Timofey Mozgov (3.5 ppg, 4.5 rpg) will head back to the bench. Koufos has been average by fantasy standards, posting 6.3 ppg while hauling in 5.9 boards per contest. The only category he's been elite in is shot blocking (1.6 bpg).

Description: Nuggets center Kosta Koufos (6.3 ppg, 5.9 rpg) will be a game-time decision for Friday against Indiana due to an illness.
Insight: If Koufos can't go, Timofey Mozgov and JaVale McGee would split the playing time. McGee has posted five consecutive double-digit scoring games and with extra minutes is a viable option.

Description: Nuggets center Kosta Koufos (6.3 ppg, 5.9 rpg) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday against Atlanta due to an illness.
Insight: If Koufos can't go, Timofey Mozgov and JaVale McGee would split the playing time.

Description: Kosta Koufos (5.4 ppg, 5.3 rpg) will get his 13th start of the season Friday against Phoenix.
Insight: George Karl is really shaking things up tonight, sitting Corey Brewer and JaVale McGee in favor of Koufos and Jordan Hamilton. We'll see how long it takes for Brewer and McGee to find their way out of Karl's doghouse and back into the starting five.
