Arron Afflalo (hamstring) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice.

In case you missed it, Afflalo left Wednesday's game early with right glute/hamstring stiffness, but he's had nearly a week off to get healtht. Afflalo could be moved at the deadline because his contract isn't guaranteed for the 2017-18 season, but he's not worth stashing in most formats.
Feb 21 - 9:40 PM

Ty Lawson (groin) was able to practice on Tuesday.

He's 100 percent and will be ready for Thursday's game vs. the Nuggets after a four-game absence. Darren Collison could be moved prior to the deadline, so be ready to give Lawson a look if the Kings find a trade partner. Lawson is just a stash for now.
Feb 21 - 9:37 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) returned to practice on Tuesday.

He's had a week off and should be fine for Thursday's game vs. the Kings. He's appeared in just 29 of the Nuggets 55 games this season, so they will continue to limit his minutes going forward. Arthur is not a fantasy option.
Feb 21 - 8:53 PM

Wilson Chandler (illness) returned to practice on Tuesday.

He missed the two games prior to the All-Star break, but he's had several days off to rest up and should be ready to play on Thursday vs. the Kings. However, Chandler's name has been incredibly popular with the Feb. 23 deadline looming, so it's not a lock that he will be a Nugget much longer. The Rockets, Clippers and Thunder are all rumored destinations for the versatile forward.
Feb 21 - 8:50 PM

Kenneth Faried (ankle) went through practice on Tuesday.

The Manimal has been able to heal up over the All-Star break and the Nuggets are hopeful that he will be ready for Thursday's game vs. the Kings after a four-game absence. Faried has been a trade candidate for years, but his name hasn't been floated around much prior to the Feb. 23 deadline. He won't play center nearly as much with Mason Plumlee in town, but he's a hold in standard leagues for now.
Feb 21 - 8:46 PM

Danilo Gallinari (groin) and Kenneth Faried (ankle) went through practice on Tuesday.

The Nuggets are "hopeful" that they will be both be available for Thursday's game vs. the Kings. Gallo has missed the past eight games for the Nuggets, but his fantasy owners should be more concerned about whether or not he's traded at the deadline -- the Celtics, Rockets and Clippers are all rumored destinations. A move would more than likely hurt his value, but at least he's healthy again.
Feb 21 - 8:41 PM

According to ESPN, the Jazz are interested in trading for Deron Williams at the deadline.

The Mavs aren't going anywhere and Williams is on an expiring contract, so his asking price should be relatively low. The Jazz haven't gotten much production out of Shelvin Mack or Dante Exum, and they have even tried Alec Burks as their backup PG for stretches. Williams would lose a lot of value in Utah and would surely come off the bench behind George Hill, so this potential move would be bad news for his fantasy owners. On the flip side, Yogi Ferrell would get a significant bump in Dallas.
Feb 21 - 8:35 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay (back) will play on Thursday vs. the Kings.

After making it through a full practice on Tuesday, the PG is ready to return after missing 11 out of the last 14 games. With the Nuggets hoping for a playoff push, Jameer Nelson is still the better player to own in standard leagues unless the veteran is moved at the deadline. Mudiay is only a pickup in points leagues for now.
