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. Oct 17 - 3:26 PM

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.
Sep 27 - 3:05 PM

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.
Jul 12 - 12:02 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.
Apr 5 - 2:09 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.
Apr 4 - 6:57 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.
Apr 3 - 1:40 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.
Apr 2 - 11:09 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.
Mar 31 - 11:19 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.
Mar 30 - 1:41 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) will be active for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavs.

It's been quite the turnaround for Arthur. As recently as Monday, coach Mike Malone was addressing questions about Arthur potentially being shut down for the season. Now, he'll suit up on Wednesday night. However, with Wilson Chander (groin) also expected to return, as well as Kenneth Faried, Mason Plumlee and Juancho Hernangomez in the mix, it will be difficult for Arthur to carve out extended minutes.
Mar 22 - 1:59 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) may be available to play on Wednesday vs. the Cavs if "all goes well at shootaround."

This is surprising news, as earlier this week Coach Michael Malone admitted there was an outside possibility that Arthur would have to be shut down for the season. Apparently, he has made great strides in just two days. However, with Mason Plumlee playing well and Kenneth Faried healthy, there are limited minutes available for Arthur even if he is active. He can be left on waivers in most leagues.
Mar 22 - 12:00 PM

Coach Michael Malone said there is a "very, very remote" chance that Darrell Arthur (knee) will be shut down for the season.

Arthur has not played since March 11th. "With 13 games to go and that knee being as troublesome as it has been at times, I guess that’s always a possibility," Malone said. "I don’t think we’re there yet. He’s not there yet. We’ll have to wait and see how it reacts to all the treatment he’s getting." At the very least, we can consider Arthur doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavs. He should be left on waivers in all leagues.

Darrell Arthur (knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

A report on Monday stated that Arthur is currently without an official timetable to return, so him being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game feels a bit overly optimistic. We should have another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but even if he's cleared to play, Arthur won't be worth a roster spot in most leagues.
Mar 21 - 4:19 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) is currently without an official timetable to return.

Monday will mark Arthur's fourth straight game on the sidelines, and while Denver is hopeful that he'll be able to make it back to the court sometime before the end of the regular season, it doesn't seem like he's very close at all to making that happen. Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee will pick up most of Arthur's minutes, and Arthur can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Mar 20 - 6:53 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play on Monday against the Rockets.

With Kenneth Faried back and Mason Plumlee playing well as a power forward, Arthur likely won't be in the rotation when healthy.
