Darrell Arthur (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

This is an upgrade from him being listed as doubtful to play on Thursday before the DNP. Arthur is likely out of the rotation anyway with Kenneth Faried playing well.
Jan 20 - 4:09 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play on Thursday vs. the Spurs.

Of course he won't. Arthur can't stay healthy and the Nuggets are going to limit his workload whenever they can. With Wilson Chandler (personal) out and Danilo Gallinari (ankle) questionable, we should see a lot of Kenneth Faried tonight and may even get a Jusuf Nurkic sighting.

Darrell Arthur (knee) is doubtful to play against the Spurs on Thursday.

He did not play on Tuesday due to his oft-injured knee. With Wilson Chandler (personal) listed as out, there could be plenty of minutes going to Kenneth Faried and even Juan Hernangomez.
Jan 18 - 5:03 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

This will be the third consecutive game Arthur has missed due to his latest knee pain. Kenneth Faried started and played a season-high 33 minutes on Monday. The Manimal will likely see extra minutes on Tuesday as well due to Arthur's absence.
Jan 17 - 1:54 PM

The availability of Darrell Arthur (knee) for Tuesday’s game at the L.A. Lakers is unknown.

Arthur missed his second consecutive game due to left knee soreness on Monday. He has missed a total of 10 games this season as a result of knee issues. "He only knows one speed," coach Mike Malone said. "When we (practice) hard he goes hardest. And his knee has a hard time withstanding that pounding. So I almost have to try to protect him from himself at times." Kenneth Faried played a season-high 33 minutes on Monday and would get a boost on Tuesday if Arthur is out.

Darrell Arthur (knee) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Magic.

It's always something with this guy, and Monday will mark his second straight game on the sidelines. Kenneth Faried and Jusuf Nurkic will likely split his limited minutes, which doesn't mean all that much.
Jan 15 - 2:48 PM

Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play against the Pacers on Thursday.

The Nuggets are somewhat healthy besides Arthur, so he wasn't a lock to be in the rotation anyway. Kenneth Faried could see some minutes at power forward tonight.
Jan 12 - 2:30 PM

Darrell Arthur (leg) is questionable for Thursday's game for the Pacers.

Of course he is. Nikola Jokic is returning from an illness anyways, so Arthur will be irrelevant in most fantasy leagues with his move back to the bench.
Jan 12 - 10:42 AM

Darrell Arthur scored 10 points in a start against the Thunder on Saturday with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

With Kenneth Faried playing the five and Wilson Chandler sliding over in some bigger lineups, Arthur had a terrific chance at minutes for this game. He will likely see a decrease in playing time once Nikola Jokic (illness) is healthy again.
Jan 7 - 10:58 PM

Darrell Arthur will start at power forward against the Thunder on Saturday.

That means Kenneth Faried should be playing most of his minutes at the center spot because Wilson Chandler will play almost all four. Arthur is likely only looking at around 15-20 minutes tonight, so he's not a great fantasy option.
Jan 7 - 7:51 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) is available to play on Saturday against the Thunder.

The Nuggets put him on the injury report basically every game, so he should be good considered close to 100 percent. With Nikola Jokic (illness) out, Arthur could get minutes in the low 20s. He's hurt too often to be owned in most leagues.
Jan 7 - 6:02 PM

Darrell Arthur (left knee soreness) is probable to play against the Thunder on Saturday.

This is pretty much the status quo for Arthur, who scored a season-high 13 points in Thursday. We're expecting the oft-injured forward to play and likely start.
Jan 6 - 3:54 PM

Darrell Arthur hit 5-of-8 shots for a season-high 13 points with four rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers in Thursday night’s loss to the Spurs.

Arthur moved into the starting lineup ahead of Wilson Chandler, as the Nuggets wanted to play big against the Spurs. He fared well, but he will go back to his bench role as early as Saturday against Thunder. However, is a player to keep an eye on as long as Kenneth Faried is out with his sore back.
Jan 6 - 12:26 AM

Darrel Arthur will start and Wilson Chandler will move to the bench against the Spurs on Thursday.

Interesting. Coach Mike Malone usually loves Chandler next to Nikola Jokic, but the horrible defense may be the motivation here. Arthur isn't worth owning in almost any league.
