Darrell Arthur started for injured Wilson Chandler on Friday, scoring 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.
Arthur is a pretty darn poor man's Draymond Green and he'll be worth a look if Chandler misses extended time. Beyond that owners should remain skeptical of his long-term value. Jan 10 - 3:05 AM

Darrell Arthur will start at small forward against the Kings on Friday.

He's played some small forward before and he'll have to guard Rudy Gay tonight. With Arthur getting more run at small forward, that should open up even more minutes for J.J. Hickson and Kenneth Faried tonight. Additionally, the Nuggets absolutely need to stay out of foul trouble tonight or things could get ugly.
Jan 9 - 9:22 PM

Darrell Arthur returned to action on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies, scoring four points with two boards and a block in 15 minutes.

The Nuggets will be glad to have Arthur back as he provides valuable depth to their frontcourt, but with Kenneth Faried playing this well and J.J. Hickson also in the mix for minutes, there isn't a lot to like here. Until Arthur has a bigger role, he can be ignored in most formats.

Darrell Arthur (leg) will be in the rotation Saturday against the Grizzlies.

That could take away some run from Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson. Arthur is capable of producing fantasy stats because he takes threes, but there are just too many injuries on his medical chart to grab him in most formats.
Jan 3 - 8:38 PM

Darrell Arthur received a DNP-CD on Thursday.

It would appear he is out of the rotation because he was available to play today. Arthur does have a number of injuries, but the team looks like they might want to hand more minutes to rookie Jusuf Nurkic. Arthur can be cut in most leagues.
Jan 1 - 10:28 PM

Darrell Arthur (strained lower leg) didn't leave the Nuggets bench on Tuesday.

He was in uniform and available for "emergency situations" but coach Brian Shaw opted to rest him another game. His next opportunity to play will come in Chicago on Thursday.

Darrell Arthur (leg) will only play in emergency situations on Tuesday since he is still having issues.

He shouldn't be in any lineups on Tuesday, as it looks like the Nuggets will play it safe. He will only have a limited role going forward due to the fact that Kenneth Faried has broken out of his slump, so Arthur can be cut in almost all leagues.

Darrell Arthur (leg) returned to action for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors, finishing with two points on 1-of-6 shooting with two boards in 11 minutes.

While the Nuggets will be glad to have some added depth to their bench, he won't see many minutes with Kenneth Faried playing this well. Arthur can be ignored in almost all leagues.

Darrell Arthur (leg) will be able to play on Sunday vs. the Raptors.

He was available to play on Friday as well, but the Nuggets opted to give him some additional rest. However, Kenneth Faried has finally broken out of his slump so there likely won't be a lot of minutes available for Arthur. Feel free to keep him on the waiver wire.

Darrell Arthur (leg) was available but did not play on Friday against the Wolves.

Kenneth Faried went off for 26 & 25 but played his normal 30 minutes, with J.J. Hickson getting the backup power forward minutes tonight. Arthur had been playing well enough for some deep leagues but with Faried's big night he's probably back to being mostly irrelevant in fantasy leagues.

Darrell Arthur (leg) will play against the Wolves on Friday.

He has been out for a week due to a mysterious leg injury. Arthur is injury-prone, so the Nuggets might ease him back into the rotation tonight. Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson take mild hits.
Fri, Dec 26, 2014 08:35:00 PM

Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Nets.

This will be the fourth game in a row that he will miss due to a lower leg strain, and there is still no known timetable for his return. Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson will continue to see extended run in Arthur's absence.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 06:56:00 PM

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.
Mon, Dec 22, 2014 06:42:00 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.
Mon, Dec 22, 2014 12:15:00 PM

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.
