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.
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.
