Arron Afflalo paced the Nuggets with 21 points during Tuesday's loss to the Spurs, going 6-of-11 from the field and 6-of-8 at the FT line in 33 minutes of action.

He chipped in three 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists and three steals in a terrific bounce-back effort following Monday's dud, which was largely the result of a blowout. Afflalo is second on the Nuggets in scoring (15.0 ppg) but his paltry defensive stats (0.6 steals, 0.1 blocks) prevent him from rising above late-round value.

Arron Afflalo made 1-of-8 from the field for two points with two rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 24 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

Now that Randy Foye is back, Afflalo's ceiling is lowered. He's also stuck in a slump over his last three, making just 28.8 percent from the field in that stretch. He is still worth owning in standard leagues, but his owners will want to lower their expectations after a productive a couple weeks before this aforementioned slump.
Jan 19 - 7:41 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 16 points on 6-of-17 shooting with five rebounds, three treys and one steal in Friday's loss to the Mavs.

Afflalo is a low-end asset in 12-team leagues and this inefficient line isn't going to change that calculus.

Coach Brian Shaw said the Nuggets are not "actively" shopping Arron Afflalo and Wilson Chandler.

If the price is right for Afflalo, the Nuggets would certainly not hesitate to deal him. The Nuggets are four games out of the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference, but they're on a four-game winning streak. If the Nuggets lose a few games in a row, things could develop quickly. Gary Harris is worth a stash in deep leagues while Alonzo Gee can be used as a low-end option right now with a higher ceiling later.

The Heat, Clippers and Hornets have inquired about Arron Afflalo.

The Heat have no depth behind Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng, the Clippers could use another wing, and the Hornets don't really like Lance Stephenson. The Nuggets have said they don't want to tear down their roster, but they certainly would make a deal for multiple picks or a prospect. A trade would hurt Afflalo while Randy Foye would be a very nice add. Gary Harris, too.
Jan 12 - 8:45 PM

Arron Afflalo scored 22 points on 8-of-19 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds and four assists in Friday's win.

Afflalo got loose against the struggling Kings and he's best suited as an end-of-the-bench guy in standard formats.
Jan 10 - 3:04 AM

Arron Afflalo scored 23 points on 8-of-12 shooting in a win over Memphis on Saturday, adding one board, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He scored 19 points on Thursday, so he may finally be starting to heat up once again for the Nuggets. However, outside of scoring and 3-pointers, Afflalo doesn't do much else in the box score and he has proven to be very inconsistent all season. Deploy him at your own risk.
Jan 3 - 11:52 PM

Arron Afflalo shot 5-of-14 from the field on Tuesday for 11 points, with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

Afflalo went through special 3-point drills this week to shake his slump, as he's averaging 12.0 points on 32.6 percent shooting over the Nuggets' past seven games. He offers virtually no fantasy appeal beyond scoring and 3-point shooting, and most 12-team owners can find comparable value on the waiver wire.

Arron Afflalo scored 31 points in Sunday's loss to the Spurs, adding five boards, one assist and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

He was dynamic all game long and was able to shoot 12-of-20 from the field, including 4-of-6 from 3-point range. He has seen his minutes rise in recent games and will be worth owning in all leagues unless he sees his role change. Keep him active in all lineups for solid contributions in points and 3-pointers.

Arron Afflalo made four 3-pointers on his way to 25 points in 44 minutes against the Raptors on Monday with six rebounds, two assists and three turnovers.

The Nuggets are using him more at the three lately and it's led to more minutes. If not for garbage time, he probably would be in the upper 30s and he should be able to score in the high teens until Kenneth Faried (back) gets back.

Arron Afflalo has been fined $15,000 by the league for his flagrant 2 foul against Alec Burks.

The fine is for "making excessive contact above the shoulders," but Afflalo will not face a suspension. He's averaging 14.5 points and 1.7 three-pointers this season while shooting 45.8 percent from the field and 85.7 percent from the charity stripe. He doesn't do much aside from score, but he's a solid source of 3-pointers and points in standard leagues.

Arron Afflalo said the flagrant 2 foul against Alec Burks in Monday's win over the Jazz was just the result of an attempted block.

Afflalo's attempted block resulted in a hard foul on Burks that caused the Jazz guard to hit the ground hard and the flagrant 2 call led to Afflalo being ejected from the game. "I was trying to go for a block, pretty much," Afflalo said. "I’m not trying to be a tough guy, not trying to commit a hard foul. Things that ensue after that is all verbal in front of the refs and a lot of people. To me that means nothing. Honestly I just thought I committed a hard foul and he finished the game so he was OK." We'll have to await word from the league, but there's a good chance Afflalo could be facing a fine for the flagrant.

Arron Afflalo was charged with a flagrant 2 foul in the fourth quarter of Monday's game and has been ejected.

He hammered Alec Burks in the face on a transition layup and it caused Burks to take a bad fall. Afflalo didn't mean it because Burks gave him a fake mid-air, but it was the right call to toss him. He finished with 14 points, one rebound, one assist and two 3-pointers. We'd be very surprised to see him be suspended.

Arron Afflalo kept his foot on the gas with 22 points in Friday's blowout win over the Suns, hitting 5-of-9 shots (1-of-1 from deep, 11-of-13 from the line) with four rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes.

Afflalo did not record a steal or block and that's one of the factors limiting his upside, but if he can be the Nuggets' primary scorer then he'll hold late-round value with unlikely mid-round upside.
