Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play on Monday night against the Hornets.
He doesn't have a timetable to return and considering how long it takes for him to recover from injuries, he is likely going to miss more games. Expect J.J. Hickson and Kenneth Faried to get more run. Dec 22 - 6:42 PM

Darrell Arthur (leg) is doubtful to play on Monday.

Arthur has a lower leg/muscle strain, and at this point, it's not clear what kind of timetable he's looking at for a return. Without him, look for Kenneth Faried and Wilson Chandler to each pick up some extra time.

Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play against the Pacers on Saturday.

He has some sort of muscle strain and it sounds like he's going to miss time. Arthur is hurt far too often, so expect J.J. Hickson and Kenneth Faried to plck up most of the minutes at power forward. Wilson Chandler also plays some four, too.
Dec 20 - 8:39 PM

Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play on Friday night against the Clippers.

He has a lower leg strain and the injuries just keep coming for Arthur. He's played well, but he's going to be tough to own in most leagues. Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson will pick up some playing time.
Dec 19 - 8:09 PM

Darrell Arthur went off against the Rockets during a 108-96 loss on Saturday, scoring a team-high 20 points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers.

Just about every other big man was in foul trouble and Kenneth Faried (ankle) had an injury, so Arthur picked up some playing time. He doesn't usually get big minutes while the team is healthy, so he's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Dec 13 - 11:51 PM

Darrell Arthur double-doubled against the Raptors on Monday with 12 points, 13 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers.

He fouled out and made 6-of-17 from the field in his 24 minutes of action. Arthur has outplayed J.J. Hickson for the power forward minutes and the Nuggets are actually drawing up plays for him. He clearly looks like the beneficiary of the Kenneth Faried (back) injury and is worth a look in standards for short-term value.
Dec 8 - 11:16 PM

Darrell Arthur played 26 minutes against the Hawks on Sunday with six points, two rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block.

The Nuggets have a grand total of three healthy big men and one of them is named J.J. Hickson. Arthur does take treys and has the ability to add some defensive stats, so he's worth a look as a short-term add. He's probably a better grab than Hickson in standard leagues.
Dec 7 - 6:32 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) played 17 minutes off the bench on Monday with 12 points, two boards, one assist and two steals.

He also hit two triples and knocked down two clutch free throws to ice this one. Arthur has some major injury concerns, so he won't be unleashed by his team. He's only an add in very deep leagues.
Dec 2 - 12:04 AM

Darrell Arthur (knee) is expected to play after going through Monday's shootaround.

Arthur was always expected to play, so this is just confirmation he'll do that after making it through shootaround without any issues.
Dec 1 - 1:15 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) did not practice on Sunday, but is expected to be available for Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

Arthur is averaging just 6.9 points and 3.6 rebounds over 15.8 minutes of action this season, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Nov 30 - 5:26 PM

Darrell Arthur (knee) played 19 minutes in his return to action on Friday, scoring six points on 3-of-5 shooting with three rebounds and one steal.

Arthur does more to limit Kenneth Faried's value than he does for himself in fantasy leagues.
Nov 29 - 3:38 AM

Darrell Arthur (knee) will play on Wednesday against the Suns.

He just had a minor contusion from Tuesday night and he should see his normal amount of playing time. Arthur is not a fantasy option.
Nov 26 - 7:53 PM

Darrell Arthur logged 26 minutes and double-doubled in Monday's win over the Cavs, scoring 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting (including three treys) with 11 rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Kenneth Faried played just 22 minutes and was the subject of a leaked story to ESPN stating how the front office wasn't thrilled with the Team USA forward. So naturally a good game like this out of nowhere might get a little bit more weight in the minds of owners, but unless he can do it again we're not moving the needle at all.
Nov 17 - 9:52 PM

Darrell Arthur had an injury against the Pacers on Friday and did return.

He finished with 11 points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 14 minutes. Arthur has really struggled to stay healthy in his career and has very little fantasy appeal.
Nov 14 - 10:57 PM

Darrell Arthur left Friday's game with an undisclosed injury and is questionable to return.

Arthur was "gimpy" so it has to be a lower extremity injury and we'll keep you updated as news comes in. This should have very little effect on the Nuggets rotation.
