Arthur is a quality reserve, but after posting averages of 6.6 points and 2.9 rebounds with the Nuggets last season, owners in standard leagues can go ahead and ignore this news. Jul 21 - 2:13 PM

The Denver Nuggets have expressed a desire to retain unrestricted free agent Darrell Arthur.

The Nuggets will have some competition for Arthur's services as the Clippers have also expressed interest in the 27-year-old, but seem intent on bringing him back into the fold. We'll keep an eye on where Arthur ends up, but he won't be much of a fantasy factor after averaging 6.6 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 0.8 blocks during the 2014-15 season.

The Clippers and Darrell Arthur have mutual interest on getting a deal done.

He only played 17.0 minutes per game last season, but he'd be a nice fit as a backup stretch four for the Clippers. Arthur has struggled to stay on the court since an Achilles tear back in 2011 and has suffered a multitude of different injuries. He won't be worth drafting in almost any fantasy league.
Jul 10 - 4:15 PM

The Nuggets expect multiple teams, including the Pistons, to show interest in unrestricted free agent Darrell Arthur.

Denver "would like to retain Arthur" and his defensive prowess, but that may not be feasible if he gets a rich offer from another team. He's never played more than 20.1 minutes per game in his career, and his FG percentage hovered around 40 percent the past two seasons, so fantasy owners should avoid him on draft day.

Darrell Arthur (calf) and Jameer Nelson (hip) will not play against the Warriors on Wednesday.

The Nuggets should have Ty Lawson and Danilo Gallinari back tonight after they rested on Monday. That would push Erick Green back to the bench. Arthur needs to stay healthy in order to have any sort of long-term fantasy value.
Apr 15 - 2:59 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf) will not be active for Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

Arthur has been out since Mar. 22 and there haven't been many updates on his status. Leave him on the wire with confidence.
Apr 12 - 5:14 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf) will not play Friday vs. the Mavericks.

Arthur may not play again this season, and with averages of just 6.6 points and 2.9 rebounds on the year, it's safe to leave him on the waiver wire in all formats.
Apr 10 - 7:45 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

Arthur doesn't offer much with season averages of just 6.6 points and 2.9 rebounds per game. He's been out of commission since March 22, and belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Apr 7 - 4:55 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf) is holding out hope that he'll be able to play again this season.

Arthur has missed four consecutive games with the same injury that has forced Jamal Crawford of the Clippers to miss 15 games (and counting). Arthur is an unrestricted free agent after the season and may proceed cautiously as to prevent further injury, so he can be left on the waiver wire in the majority of fantasy leagues.

Darrell Arthur (calf) will not play vs. the Jazz on Wednesday.

This is his fourth straight game out of the lineup and it's unclear when he will be able to return. Given his limited role off the bench, his absence won't have many fantasy implications and he can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Apr 1 - 1:13 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf) will not play against the Jazz on Friday.

It'll be his second consecutive game out with a nagging calf injury. This is his third different flare up with this injury and he's likely going to be out for a few more. Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried and Wilson Chandler should get his minutes.
Mar 27 - 8:04 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf) will not play against the 76ers on Wednesday.

He can't shake this calf injury and could miss more time for the Nuggets. He can be dropped in most leagues. Expect Jusuf Nurkic, Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson to get his minutes.
Mar 25 - 8:08 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf) returned to action in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies, scoring three points on 1-of-11 shooting with five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 29 minutes.

Arthur is a prime injury risk and he hasn't made any noise in a long while. He's waiver wire fodder until further notice.
Mar 16 - 11:13 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Sunday.

There is a chance that he could return to the active lineup to face the Grizzlies on Monday, but Arthur hasn't proven that he can stay health all season. Leave him on the wire and expect Joffrey Lauvergene and J.J. Hickson to see some extra minutes tonight.
Mar 15 - 11:21 AM

Darrell Arthur (knee, calf) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

Arthur isn't a major rotation player for the Nuggets, so there aren't many fantasy implications with this news. J.J. Hickson will likely pick up most of his reserve minutes, but that really doesn't mean much.
