Darrell Arthur (knee soreness) is available on Monday vs. the Hornets.

Just because he's available doesn't mean he will play, and it's worth noting that Arthur isn't really in the rotation right now.
Feb 5 - 8:08 PM

Darrell Arthur is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Hornets.

He's dealing with right knee soreness and has had issues with his knees for several years. He's not in the rotation anyways.
Feb 5 - 1:09 PM

Darrell Arthur played one minute against the Thunder on Thursday.

Not much of a surprise here against the offensive forwards in OKC. Don't expect Arthur to play against the Warriors on Saturday.
Feb 2 - 1:46 AM

Darrell Arthur will come off the bench on Thursday against the Thunder.

He should be in the rotation, but it's not a guarantee. Arthur will add some depth until Paul Millsap or Mason Plumlee can make it back.
Feb 1 - 10:06 PM

Darrell Arthur is starting in place of Mason Plumlee (illness) on Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

Arthur has played a total of six minutes in January and his knees can't handle a full workload. We'd expect Trey Lyles to see the bulk of the PF minutes tonight.
Jan 30 - 8:15 PM

Darrell Arthur (illness) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against Utah.

Arthur was dealing with a stomach issue back in September, but it sounds like he's recovered and should be available on opening night. That said, he's in an extremely crowded frontcourt in Denver, and there are no guarantees he'll touch the floor on Wednesday.

Darrell Arthur is dealing with an unknown stomach issue that doesn't allow him to keep food down in the morning.

He's been dealing with this issue since July, but tests have come back negative. Hopefully, whatever is bothering him can be diagnosed and he can play soon. Additionally, Arthur said his knee and hamstring feel good, but he is limited in drills.

Darrell Arthur is flying to Germany to undergo Regenokine treatment on his left knee.

This is the same procedure that Kobe Bryant used to have done, so hopefully, it will help him stay healthy next season. Arthur is currently one of six power forwards on the books with Denver for the 2017-18 season, so it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him traded or waived at some point this offseason.
Wed, Jul 12, 2017 12:02:00 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) is probable to play against the Rockets on Wednesday.

The Nuggets may actually need him today with Kenneth Faried (back) getting hurt on Tuesday. Arthur probably wouldn't start against a team like the Rockets, so it'll be tough to use him in almost any case.
Wed, Apr 5, 2017 02:09:00 PM

Darrell Arthur (left knee soreness) will not play Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.

This will be his fourth straight game on the sidelines. Even when fully healthy, Arthur will have a tough time cracking the rotation. He belongs on waivers in all leagues.
Tue, Apr 4, 2017 06:57:00 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

He's not in the rotation anyways and is a candidate to be shut down with the Nuggets falling 2.0 games behind the Blazers in the West.
Mon, Apr 3, 2017 01:40:00 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play on Sunday vs. the Heat.

The oft-injured big man has made just two brief appearances over the last nine games and belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Sun, Apr 2, 2017 11:09:00 AM

Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Friday night vs. the Hornets.

Arthur, who has been battling nagging knee injuries all season, was a DNP-CD on Tuesday and has appeared in only two of the Nuggets last eight games. He belongs on the wire in all leagues.
Fri, Mar 31, 2017 11:19:00 AM

Darrell Arthur (knee) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

The guy just can't shake his knee issue. Unless you're tanking in your fantasy league, leave Arthur on the wire.
