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.
Mar 13 - 7:57 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) is probable to play vs. the Hawks on Wednesday.

He is averaging just 6.9 points and 3.0 rebounds on the season, and if you add in the fact that he is a constant injury risk, it's safe to leave him on the wire in most formats.
Mar 11 - 2:05 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf, knee) will play against the Knicks on Monday.

His minutes have really dipped since coach Brian Shaw departed, which makes sense because Kenneth Faried is getting run now. Arthur can be left on the wire in most leagues without even taking into account how often he misses time with leg injuries.
Mar 9 - 8:27 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf) is questionable for Monday's game against the Knicks.

Arthur didn't do much at shootaround, and it would be a surprise if he suits up after leaving Saturday's game with a knee injury. There is no reason to hold onto Arthur at this point with all of his health issues.
Mar 9 - 1:18 PM

Darrell Arthur will not return to Saturday's game vs. the Rockets due to right posterior knee soreness, finishing with two points and one steal in eight minutes.

The guy simply can't stay healthy this season and he is probably looking at another stint on the sidelines. Arthur's role wasn't big enough to warrant attention in most leagues anyways, so this news doesn't have a lot of fantasy implications. Joffrey Lauvergne may see a few extra minutes off the bench, but his value is also limited to deeper leagues. Arthur can be cut across the board.
Mar 7 - 10:19 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf) will play vs. the Bucks on Tuesday.

He has missed the last two games due to a calf strain, but the Nuggets could certainly use the extra depth. However, with season averages of just 7.3 points and 3.2 boards in 17.7 minutes per game, it's safe to leave Arthur on the wire in standard leagues.
Mar 3 - 8:51 PM

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

This will be his second straight game on the sidelines and we will consider him day-to-day moving forward. Arthur has averages of just 7.3 points, 3.2 boards and 1.0 assist in 17.7 minutes per game this season, so his absence won't have many fantasy implications. Expect Kenneth Faried and Wilson Chandler to benefit the most on Sunday night.
Mar 1 - 7:20 PM

Darrell Arthur (calf) has been downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans.

If Arthur is unable to go on Sunday, his minutes will be split up between Kenneth Faried, Wilson Chandler, and J.J. Hickson, but there are no clear winners here with Brian Shaw at the helm.

Darrell Arthur (calf) is questionable to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

He is dealing with an upper muscle strain which seems like it's just behind the knee. Arthur tends to miss a lot of games due to injury, so he could miss more time. If he's out, the Nuggets will run a lot more small-ball lineups. However, nobody will consistently benefit with how coach Brian Shaw is running his rotation.
Feb 28 - 4:01 PM

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

The Nuggets do get Kenneth Faried back, so they're not too thin at power forward. However, they're still very thin at center and will likely lean on Joffrey Lauvergne the most in their frontcourt. J.J. Hickson may also play more, but he has sort of fallen out of favor with his coach recently.
