An MRI confirmed Darrell Arthur (hamstring) had no damage in his right hamstring.
He has a number of leg injuries and now he can get some practice reps in soon. However, the Nuggets adding some depth to their frontcourt will make it tough for Arthur to get much playing time. Oct 12 - 5:06 PM

Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play in Thursday's preseason game vs. the Bulls.

Erik Green (rest), Wilson Chandler (rest) and Jusuf Nurkic (knee) will join Arthur on the sidelines for Thursday's exhibition. The earlier the preseason, the more likely we are to see guys on the sidelines resting, so we wouldn't read much into any of this. Arthur and Green aren't worth drafting in almost any league, while Chandler and Nurkic make for nice late-round targets.

Darrell Arthur (leg) is unlikely to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Bulls.

Nuggets head coach said the team is being cautious with Arthur in order to make sure he'll be ready for the regular season, so it doesn't sound like he's dealing with anything serious. While Arthur will be part of the Nuggets rotation, he only averaged 6.6 points and 2.9 rebounds last season and can be left undrafted in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 8 - 9:36 AM

The Nuggets have agreed to a two-year deal with Darrell Arthur.

The second year of the deal has a player option. Arthur will have a new coach next season with Mike Malone and he may play him as more of a traditional four. The Nuggets do have some interesting younger prospects at the forward spots with Nikola Jokic and Joffrey Lauvergne, so Arthur's minutes should be low out of the gate.
Aug 7 - 3:52 PM

The Nuggets will reportedly re-sign unrestricted free agent Darrell Arthur sometime this week.

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.

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.
