Update: Sampson pitched in with 16 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two steals and a block over 25 minutes in Friday's 102-98 victory over the Spurs.
Analysis: The 23-year-old managed a season-high scoring total against a Spurs squad that rested four-fifths of its starting unit. Sampson has impressively shot 50 percent or better in four of the last five games, but has only scored in double digits in three of the last eight contests. While he's demonstrated proficiency from the field, Sampson's limited offensive involvement overall caps his fantasy ceiling.
Sampson exited Monday's game at Cleveland with a strained left shoulder and will not return.
Sampson had been starting in place of the injured Danilo Gallinari but hasn't been putting up fantasy-relevant numbers despite the increase in playing time. Expect the Nuggets to update his status in the coming days.
