2019 Fantasy Outlook
After going through a sophomore slump in 2017-18, Hernangomez bounced back last season to have the most productive year of his young career. He appeared in 70 games last year for Denver, making 25 starts, and averaged a career-high 5.8 points and 3.8 rebounds across 19.4 minutes per game while shooting 36.5 percent from behind the arc. The issue for Hernangomez heading into his fourth season is that his role doesn't have much room to expand with the Nuggets not only bringing all of its personnel from last season back but adding some key pieces to the frontcourt rotation. Beyond the potential for Michael Porter to make his NBA debut after missing all of his rookie season with a back injury, Denver also traded for Jerami Grant this offseason, who will surely play a significant frontcourt role off the bench. As a result, Hernangomez's minutes as a role player likely will not increase. If anything, he will likely see a dip in usage based on the makeup of the team's roster heading into the start of the season. Read Past Outlooks

FMinnesota Timberwolves
March 11, 2020
Hernangomez delivered 18 points (6-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 117-111 loss at Houston.
ANALYSIS
Hernangomez was coming off two subpar efforts against the Pelicans (three points) and the Magic (eight points), but otherwise he's been a decent source of production for Minnesota since he has scored at least 10 points in six of his last eight games while also averaging 8.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals during that span. This was also his fourth double-double since joining the Timberwolves in early February.

Past Season Summaries
2019

Hernangomez began his fourth NBA season with the Denver Nuggets. He saw 12.4 minutes per game in 34 appearances for the Nuggets, averaging 3.1 points and 2.8 rebounds. Against the Grizzlies on Nov. 17, Hernangomez went for 15 points, three rebounds, two assists and a block in 29 minutes. On Feb. 4, he was traded to the Timberwolves as part of a package that also brought Malik Beasley to Minnesota. Hernangomez was immediately inserted into the Timberwolves' starting lineup, and he started the final 14 games before the season was suspended on Mar. 11. Hernangomez scored in double-figures in nine of his first 11 games in Minnesota, averaging 13.8 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steal in that span. Against the Magic on Feb. 28, Hernangomez posted season-highs in points (18), rebounds (13), and assists (five), while also adding two steals and a block in 31 minutes. He matched that point total in the final game of the season (Mar. 10 at HOU), adding 10 boards and a steal. In 14 games with Minnesota, Hernangomez averaged 12.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 steal per contest.

2018

Juancho Hernangomez took a significant leap forward in 2018-19, his third NBA campaign. Entrusted with additional playing time (19 minutes per game compared to 11 the prior season), Hernangomez set career-highs in points (5.8), rebounds (3.8) and assists (0.8) per game. He played at least 30 minutes on 15 occasions, highlighted by a 40-minute game against the Hawks on Dec. 8. Juancho was efficient, shooting from the field (44 percent) while nailing 36.5 percent from downtown. He also shot at least 75 percent (76.7) from the line for a third consecutive season. Hernangomez also chipped in nearly a steal-plus-block (0.7) per game for good measure. He scored in double figures on six separate occasions in the month of November, including 20-plus points three different times. Over the course of a 25-game stretch from Nov. 1 to Dec. 26, Hernangomez averaged 12 points and 6.2 rebounds per contest. Included in that stretch was a monster 27-point, 13-rebound effort against the Spurs the night after Christmas. The 2016 No. 15 overall selection has proven to be a deep threat who can contribute in a variety of areas.

2017

Juancho Hernangomez started three of the 25 games he appeared in with the Denver Nuggets during the 2017-18 campaign. After playing 62 games as a rookie the previous season, the 6-foot-9 forward dealt with a handful of injuries and illnesses in his second year. He averaged 3.3 points and 2.2 rebounds while shooting 38.7 percent. Hernangomez's best stretch came during his eight games in November, as the Spaniard averaged 5.1 points and 3.4 rebounds on 37.8 percent shooting during that span. His 11 points on Nov. 20 against the Sacramento Kings were his best effort of the entire season, but the 22-year-old also pulled down season-high 10 rebounds on Nov. 28 against the Utah Jazz. Hernangomez appeared in just 11 games from the beginning of December through the end of February. He missed 29 games during that span. Even when he was in the lineup, it was clear that Hernangomez wasn't playing at 100 percent, explaining the slight drop-off from his rookie numbers.

2016

The 15th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Hernangomez appeared in 62 games for the Nuggets as a rookie. He averaged 4.9 points and 3.0 rebounds in 13.6 minutes of run. Hernangomez hit 45.1 percent of his field goals, including 40.7 percent from beyond the arc. He scored his first NBA points Nov. 3 in Minnesota. He made his first NBA start in a Nov. 23 loss to the Jazz, playing 28 minutes and posting nine points, six rebounds, three steals and two blocks. In a Feb. 13 win over Golden State, Hernangomez hit six three-pointers and scored a season-high 27 points to go with 10 rebounds and two assists. He registered 10 boards again on March 8 against the Wizards.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
2016
Between injuries and an illness, Hernangomez only appeared in 25 games for the Nuggets last season. He didn't look quite right when he played, seeing most of his stats regress from a rookie campaign where he shot 46-of-113 (40.7 percent) from beyond the arc. However, much of that could be chalked up to him presumably playing at less than 100 percent. Wilson Chandler being traded away to Philadelphia opens up some frontcourt minutes, but it will still be difficult for Hernangomez to find significant run at power forward (his primary position) with Paul Millsap still around.
Hernangomez showed some glimpses of brilliance last season, as he averaged 12.0 points per game in the 11 games he played at least 24.0 minutes. That was emphasized by a 27-point, 10-rebound performance in February, in which Hernangomez set fire against the Golden State Warriors. He went 6-of-10 from three-point range in that blowout win, which is where Hernangomez really shows his versatility. At 6'9”, Hernangomez went 46-of-113 from long distance for the season, which is an impressive mark since he played under 14.0 minutes per game. Things really opened up for Hernangomez too, as he should see an uptick in playing time with Danilo Gallinari leaving to play for the Clippers. He'll likely compete with Will Barton for minutes at small forward behind Wilson Chandler, though he could see some time at power forward as well despite the crowded depth chart. At just 21-years-old, Hernangomez should still be on the rise and with in increase in playing time in store following the departure of Gallinari, he should see a bump in production across the board.
Hernangomez, 21, spent last season in Spain before being selected by the Nuggets with the 15th overall pick in the draft. At 6-foot-9, Hernangomez has the size to fill both forward spots, but he still has plenty of room to add weight and is probably best suited to play power forward while he adjusts to the NBA three-point line. Just how much he'll play remains to be seen, though, as he joins a Nuggets roster flush with depth at virtually every position. Hernangomez will have to compete for minutes with fellow versatile talents Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler, as well as Darrell Arthur and Kenneth Faried. As a result, 2016-17 projects to be mostly a developmental year for Hernangomez, making him an interesting commodity largely only in dynasty formats.
