Insight: He shot 12-of-14 from the field and 6-of-8 from the line for 30 points, seve n rebounds, one assist, three steals, and three turnovers. Faried is playing his best basketball of the season.
Kenneth Faried, F4/5/2015 9:34:00 AM

Insight: Faried finished with 10 points and 14 boards, along with three assists, one steal, and four turnovers. He is averaging 12.0 ppg and 8.8 rpg on the season.
Danilo Gallinari, F4/4/2015 8:32:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari will be rested for Saturday's contest against the Clippers.
Insight: No surprise here, as the Nuggets will play the second half of a back-to-back set. Gallinari should be back in action the next time Denver takes the court.
Danilo Gallinari, F4/3/2015 10:58:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari was pretty much the only positive thing that came out of the, 123-93, loss to the Spurs on Friday.
Insight: Denver trailed San Antonio, 45-25, at the end of the first quarter, so it was pretty much over then. Gallinari was 8-for-12 from the field with 20 points, three rebounds, two steals and an assist.
Jameer Nelson, G3/29/2015 9:43:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Jameer Nelson came off the bench and scored 22 points to led Denver on Saturday versus the Trail Blazers.
Insight: Nelson also had five assists, four 3-pointers, two rebounds and one steal. Without Danilo Gallinari, Nelson is worth a look in fantasy leagues, but Gallinari should return in the team's next game.
Kenneth Faried, F3/29/2015 9:38:00 AM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried did not shoot well on Saturday but still recorded a double-double versus the Trail Blazers.
Insight: Faried was 3-for-10 from the field but hit eight free throws to finish with 14 points. He also had 10 rebounds. Faried has been very disappointing this season, averaging just 12.0 ppg and 8.7 rpg in 68 games this season.
Danilo Gallinari, F3/28/2015 9:16:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari will not play on Saturday versus the Trail Blazers due to a shoulder injury.
Insight: This is not a surprise. Gallinari will probably miss at least one more game with the shoulder issue.
Darrell Arthur, F3/28/2015 11:06:00 AM
Description: Nuggets forward Darrell Arthur is doubtful for Saturday's game against Portland due to a strained right calf.
Insight: Arthur (6.6 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 1.0 apg) has already missed the past two games with the injury. Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson will continue to see extended playing time.
Nate Robinson, G3/27/2015 11:05:00 AM
Description: Guard Nate Robinson has yet to be re-signed by the Clippers after his second 10-day contract expired Thursday night.
Insight: Robinson is also dealing with a sore left knee. Obviously, you shouldn't plan on him being in uniform.
Danilo Gallinari, F3/27/2015 10:57:00 AM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari is questionable for Friday's game against Utah due to a shoulder injury.
Insight: At least it's not his knee. Gallinari said he expected to be ready for Friday, according to Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post.
Kenneth Faried, F3/22/2015 8:37:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried had 11 points and five rebounds in the victory over the Magic on Sunday.
Insight: Those are modest numbers. Faried didn't shoot well going 4-for-12 from the field. With Gallinari going off for 40 points and Faried struggling from the field, he wasn't able to have a big night. Faried, however, is still averaging 17.5 ppg in the last five games.
Danilo Gallinari, F3/22/2015 8:33:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari dropped a 40-burger on the Orlando Magic Sunday.
Insight: Gallinari was 12-of-21 from the field, including 6-for-13 from the 3-point line and 10-for-11 at the line on his way to a season-high 40 points. Gallinari also had seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks. This was obviously Gallinari's best game of the season, but it is hard to count on him repeating it.
Kenneth Faried, F3/20/2015 10:05:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried had a decent scoring night, going 10-for-15 from the field with 20 points.
Insight: Unfortunately, Faried had a goose egg at the line, going 0-for-5. He also had six rebounds, four steals, two assists and two blocks. It was nice to see Faried fill the stat sheet on Friday, but he has been overall disappointing in the 2014-15 season.
Danilo Gallinari, F3/20/2015 1:19:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari (rest) will sit out Friday night's game.
Insight: The Nuggets will rest him in back-to-back sets and he played Thursday night. Wilson Chandler and Will Barton should see an increase in playing time.
Wilson Chandler, G/F3/19/2015 10:39:00 PM
Description: Nuggets small forward Wilson Chandler shot 10-of-17 from the field on his way to 23 points on Thursday.
Insight: Chandler made two 3-pointers and finished with six rebounds, three steals, two assists and a block. The 20-point game is his second one this month.
Jameer Nelson, G3/16/2015 10:50:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Jameer Nelson started and scored a team-high 24 points during Monday's loss versus Memphis.
Insight: He played well, going 11-of-18 from the field and 2-of-5 from downtown. Nelson also had five rebounds, two assists, one steal, and four turnovers. Whenever Ty Lawson is out, Nelson will hold nice value.
Danilo Gallinari, F3/16/2015 1:19:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari (rest) will sit out Monday night's game.
Insight: The Nuggets will rest a number of players for Monday's game after a double overtime game on Sunday. Gallinari has finally started to play as we were hoping, averaging 21.3 ppg over the last three starts.
Ty Lawson, G3/16/2015 1:18:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson (rest) will not play on Monday.
Insight: Lawson just came back after missing a game due to illness and then played 48 minutes Sunday night. He's averaging 15.9 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 9.7 apg. Jameer Nelson should get the start at the point.
Kenneth Faried, F3/16/2015 1:14:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried will not play on Monday.
Insight: The Nuggets will rest a number of players for Monday's game after a double overtime game on Sunday. Bad timing for Faried fantasy owners as he's been playing very well lately. He's averaged 19.3 ppg, 10.8 rpg over his last four games.
Kenneth Faried, F3/15/2015 9:34:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried posted a double-double during Sunday's double-overtime win over the Pelicans.
Insight: He finished with 20 points, 10 boards, one assists, two blocks, two turnovers, while shooting 7-of-17 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line. Faried has benefited from Brian Shaw being fired, as he has been a top-40 option over the past two weeks.
Ty Lawson, G3/15/2015 5:28:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson (illness) will play on Sunday.
Insight: He missed Friday's contest, but is ready to return to action. Jameer Nelson will move back to the bench.
Ty Lawson, G3/12/2015 8:37:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson (illness) will not play on Friday.
Insight: Jameer Nelson will start, and will make for a strong play in daily leagues.
Ty Lawson, G3/8/2015 9:34:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson nearly posted a triple-double on Saturday night.
Insight: He had 13 points, 10 assists, eight boards, one 3-pointer, one steal, and one turnover. However, Lawson shot just 5-of-14 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line in a loss to Houston.
Wilson Chandler, G/F3/8/2015 9:28:00 AM
Description: Nuggets small forward Wilson Chandler played very well during Saturday's loss to the Rockets.
Insight: He scored a team-high 26 points by shooting 11-of-15 from the field and 4-of-5 from downtown. Chandler also recorded five rebounds, two assists, four steals, and three trurnovers. He is now averaging 13.8 ppg and 6.0 rpg on the season.
Nate Robinson, G3/7/2015 2:58:00 PM
Description: Guard Nate Robinson is expected to be signed to a 10-day contract by the Clippers according to Marc Spears of Yahoo. Update: his signing is now official.
Insight: Robinson doesn't have much fantasy value with the Clippers as he'd be behind Chris Paul and J.J. Redick, however this probably does say something about the injury to guard Jamal Crawford.
Nate Robinson, G3/7/2015 2:53:00 PM
Description: Guard Nate Robinson is expected to be signed to a 10-day contract by the Clippers according to Marc Spears of Yahoo.
Insight: Robinson doesn't have much fantasy value with the Clippers as he'd be behind Chris Paul and J.J. Redick, however this probably does say something about the injury to guard Jamal Crawford.
Danilo Gallinari, F3/4/2015 10:32:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari had 16 points in the, 100-85, victory over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Kenneth Faried, F3/4/2015 10:27:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried had 18 points and 14 rebounds in the, 100-85, victory over the Timberwolves.
Insight: Faried has 16 double-doubles this season, but overall he has been disappointing. He is averaging 11.2 ppg and 8.6 rpg this season.
Kenneth Faried, F3/3/2015 9:56:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried started during Tuesday's victory and posted a double-double.
Insight: Faried should benefit from former head coach Brian Shaw being fired, as his rotation was very unpredictable. Faried finished with 14 points, 14 boards, two blocks, and one turnover, while shooting 5-of-10 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line.
Danilo Gallinari, F3/1/2015 10:30:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari scored a team-high 21 points during Sunday's loss versus New Orleans.
Insight: He knocked down two 3-pointers and shot 7-of-18 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line. Gallinari played 32 minutes in a start at small forward and has now scored in double-figures in six consecutive games.
Jusuf Nurkic, C2/28/2015 6:45:00 PM
Description: Nuggets center Jusuf Nurkic has no timetable to return to the court according to the Denver Post.
Insight: Nurkic has an ankle sprain. He is expected to need at least a week and maybe even a month to recover fully. Joffrey Lauvergne will see the biggest fantasy boost in Nurkic's absence.
Wilson Chandler, G/F2/26/2015 4:42:00 PM
Description: Nuggets small forward Wilson Chandler (groin) will likely play on Friday.
Insight: Denver needs this, with Jusuf Nurkic and Darrell Arthur banged up. Chandler will likely return to the starting lineup, pushing Danilo Gallinari back to the bench.
Jusuf Nurkic, C2/26/2015 4:38:00 PM
Description: Nuggets center Jusuf Nurkic (calf) will not play on Friday night.
Insight: Darrell Arthur is also doubtful, which means J.J. Hickson and Kenneth Faried will see a ton of time in Denver's frontcourt.
Wilson Chandler, G/F2/25/2015 8:26:00 PM
Description: Nuggets small forward Wilson Chandler (groin) will not play on Wednesday.
Insight: He was doubtful coming in, so no surprise here. Danilo Gallinari will start.
Kenneth Faried, F2/25/2015 8:22:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried (thumb) will not play on Wednesday night.
Insight: He was questionable coming in, but having not been starting recently, it should be a huge blow.
Wilson Chandler, G/F2/25/2015 2:26:00 PM
Description: Nuggets small forward Wilson Chandler is doubtful versus the Suns on Wednesday according to the Denver Post.
Insight: Out of the playoffs, Denver could sit both Chandler and Kenneth Faried on Wednesday. Gary Harris started in place of Chandler on Monday and scored 10 points in 26 minutes.
Kenneth Faried, F2/25/2015 2:22:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried is questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Suns.
Insight: Faried had a pretty bad Monday, getting benched in favor of Darrell Arthur and then injurying his thumb during the game. The Nuggets could sit Faried on Wednesday, which would mean big minutes for Arthur.
Kenneth Faried, F2/23/2015 10:26:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried left Monday's game with a left hand injury according to Roto World.
Insight: Faried went into the locker room with an ice bag on his hand. He did not start Monday anyway, so there shouldn't have been too many fantasy owners who started him. If Faried misses time, Darrell Arthur should continue to start.
Kenneth Faried, FHot2/23/2015 8:21:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried will come off the bench on Monday versus the Nets according to Nuggets play-by-play announcer Jason Kosmicki.
Insight: Faried has not been playing well, but it is still a bold move to place Darrell Arthur in the starting lineup instead of Faried. Arthur has very limited fantasy upside, so it appears owners will need to find somewhere else to get production from a forward on Monday.
Danilo Gallinari, F2/22/2015 9:20:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari hit three 3-pointers on his way to 16 points in the loss to the Thunder on Sunday.
Insight: Gallinari was 5-of-11 from the field overall and 50 percent at the 3-point line. He didn't contribute much else with just two rebounds.
Ty Lawson, G2/22/2015 7:21:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson will start on Sunday versus the Thunder, which means Jameer Nelson will return to his bench role.
Insight: Lawson has a tough matchup versus Russell Westbrook, but he is still a guy every fantasy owners should have in lineups. Hopefully, Lawson can avoid and further issues with the law, which caused him to miss Friday's game.
Ty Lawson, G2/20/2015 8:36:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson will not play on Friday against the Bucks.
Insight: Lawson missed practice because he was stuck in Las Vegas, so Lawson is not expected to play Friday. Promptly take him out of your lineup.
Jameer Nelson, G2/20/2015 8:35:00 PM
Description: Nuggets backup point guard Jameer Nelson will start on Friday versus the Bucks.
Insight: Starting point guard Ty Lawson missed the team's first practice after the All-Star break, and it appears he will not play as punishment. Nelson will get the bulk of the minutes at point guard Friday.
Wilson Chandler, G/F2/11/2015 9:09:00 AM
Description: Nuggets small forward Wilson Chandler had 13 points, finishing second among the Denver starters as the Nuggets beat the Lakers, 106-96.

Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson was 12-of-20 from the field on Tuesday versus the Lakers, scoring 32 points.
Insight: Lawson also tied a season-high with 16 assists. He has now passed for 16 assists in three games this season. Lawson has been playing very well in the last five games, averaging 20.4 ppg and 11.2 apg over that stretch.
Jusuf Nurkic, CHot2/10/2015 10:08:00 AM
Description: Nuggets center Jusuf Nurkic posted a 16-point, 14-rebound effort against OKC Monday.
Insight: With Timofey Mozgoz dealt to Cleveland, Nurkic has the center spot to himself, and over the past three games he's started to play well. He's averaging 12 ppg and 11.3 rpg over that span and we expect him to continue to play like this.
Kenneth Faried, FHot2/10/2015 10:07:00 AM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried posted a double-double (22-10) during Monday's loss to the Thunder.
Insight: Over the past three games, Faried is starting to play as fantasy owners expected he would all season. He's averaging 16.3 ppg and 9 rpg over that span versus 11.7 and 8.8 for the first 47 games.
Jameer Nelson, G2/9/2015 12:01:00 PM
Description: Nuggets backup point guard Jameer Nelson missed Friday's game against Detroit, but made it through Sunday's practice and is listed as questionable for Monday versus the Thunder.
Insight: Ty Lawson is the guy in Denver and Nelson just gets the crumbs, so barring an injury to the starter Nelson has little-to-no fantasy value even when healthy.
Ty Lawson, G2/6/2015 10:24:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson went for 20 points and nine assists during Friday's loss against the Pistons.
Insight: He also pitched in three boards, one 3-pointer, four turnovers, and shot 6-of-12 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line. Lawson is a top-60 option.
Ty Lawson, G2/6/2015 10:43:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson should see as much playing time as he can handle Friday as Jameer Nelson has been ruled out due to an Achilles injury.
Insight: Lawson played 43 minutes Wednesday with Nelson sidelined. He should be near that number Friday versus Detroit.
Jameer Nelson, G2/6/2015 10:42:00 AM
Description: Nuggets backup point guard Jameer Nelson has been ruled out for Friday's game against Detroit.
Insight: That likely means Ty Lawson plays close to 40 minutes and should be a very good fantasy option. Lawson posted 23 points and eight assists in 43 minutes Wednesday when Nelson missed the game.
Kenneth Faried, F2/4/2015 10:07:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried posted a double-double during Wednesday's loss to the Celtics.
Insight: Faried had 17 points and 11 rebounds, and shot 6-of-8 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line. He is still outside of the top 130 in standard leagues.
Danilo Gallinari, F2/3/2015 9:51:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari had his best game of the season during Tuesday's loss to the 76ers.
Insight: He went 5-of-11 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line for 22 points, four rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers, one steal, and three turnovers. Gallinari is still not worth owning at this moment.
Kenneth Faried, F2/3/2015 12:57:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried is expected to play on Tuesday versus the 76ers according to the Denver Post.
Insight: Faried had a good January, averaging 12.7 ppg and 10.5 rpg, so despite his up-and-down season, he should be in fantasy lineups on Tuesday.
J.J. Hickson, C2/2/2015 11:20:00 AM
Description: If Kenneth Faried returns from illness Tuesday against Philadelphia, Denver PF/C J.J. Hickson would see his playing time go back to its usual level (20 minutes).
Insight: Hickson played 30 minutes Saturday, racking up 12 points and eight rebounds.
Kenneth Faried, F2/2/2015 11:17:00 AM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Philadelphia.
Insight: The Nuggets have been playing short-handed up front and need the high-energy power forward back in the lineup. So do fantasy owners who miss the 11.9 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 1.3 apg.
Kenneth Faried, F1/31/2015 6:20:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried (illness) will not play on Saturday.
Insight: Darrell Arthur (illness) is also out, paving way for J.J. Hickson to see extended time.
Kenneth Faried, F1/29/2015 10:36:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried led the team in points and rebounds versus the Grizzlies on Thursday.
Insight: That isn't saying much as Faried had 10 points and seven rebounds as Memphis manhandled Denver, 99-69. Faried has been alright this season, averaging 12.0 ppg and 8.9 rpg, but the expectations for him were higher.
JaVale McGee, C1/29/2015 6:58:00 PM
Description: Denver center JaVale McGee will be active again on Thursday.
Insight: McGee was active on Wednesday, but he did not play. He might get a chance to play on Thursday, though, it will be against Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph.
Arron Afflalo, G1/28/2015 10:45:00 PM
Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo led Denver with 20 points in the, 93-85, victory over the Pelicans on Wednesday.

Ty Lawson, GHot1/27/2015 8:41:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson had 19 points and 11 assists in the loss to the Clippers on Monday.
Insight: That's a second straight solid game since the off-the-court incident. Perhaps he's concentrating on his game to take his mind off the DUI issue. Keep starting him.
Wilson Chandler, G/F1/25/2015 10:48:00 PM
Description: Denver small forward Wilson Chandler was 4-for-9 from the 3-point line on Sunday.
Insight: Chandler had 20 points, nine rebounds, an assist, steal and block. He was 8-of-19 from the field.
Ty Lawson, G1/25/2015 10:44:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson had 31 points and 12 assists in the loss to the Wizards on Sunday.
Insight: Washington won in overtime, 117-115. Lawson shot 50 percent, hitting 3-of-5 3-pointers and all eight free throws. He also had three rebounds and three steals. This was his first game since his DUI. Lawson should be in the fantasy lineup as long as he is in the Nuggets' lineup.
Ty Lawson, G1/25/2015 6:39:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson will start on Sunday versus the Wizards.
Insight: Lawson did not play Friday after he was arrested for DUI on Friday morning. As long as he is in the lineup, Lawson should be in the fantasy lineup.
Jameer Nelson, G1/25/2015 10:13:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Jameer Nelson took advantage of the absence of Ty Lawson during Friday's loss to the Celtics, but could be back on the bench Sunday.
Insight: With Lawson sidelined due to a DUI arrest, Nelson started and went 9-of-20 from the field, 1-of-2 from the line, and 4-of-7 from deep. He finished with a team-high 23 points, seven assists and four turnovers.
Ty Lawson, G1/25/2015 10:11:00 AM

Ty Lawson, G1/23/2015 7:13:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson will not play Friday night.
Insight: Not a surprise here, as Lawson was arrested for a DUI early Friday morning. Jameer Nelson will start,w ith Randy Foye seeing additional minutes.

Insight: He went 7-of-13 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line for 22 points, eight assists, three boards, one 3-pointer, one block, and one turnover. Lawson has underperformed this season, as he is just a top-80 player.
Jusuf Nurkic, C1/7/2015 5:27:00 PM
Description: Nuggets center Jusuf Nurkic needs to be owned everywhere.
Insight: With Timofey Mozgoz reportedly dealt to Cleveland, Nurkic will start at center for Denver. Owners need to pick him up immediately.
Arron Afflalo, G1/5/2015 10:26:00 PM
Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo made four 3-pointers and all of his foul shots in a big scoring night.
Insight: Afflalo was 11-for-18 from the field overall and 8-for-8 at the line on his way to a season-high 34 points. He didn't accumulate many other numbers with two rebounds, two assists and a steal. Afflalo is playing better lately, but he still isn't worth owning in standard leagues.
Nate Robinson, G1/4/2015 10:24:00 AM
Description: Nuggets guard Nate Robinson left Saturday's game against Memphis due to a sprained right wrist and did not return.
Insight: Make him questionable for Monday's game against Minnesota. Robinson is only averaging around 14 minutes per night which isn't enought to help fantasy owners.

Ty Lawson, G12/27/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson posted 16 points, three rebounds and 11 assists Friday night.
Insight: Lawson has been playing a huge number of minutes in December (39.4 mpg) which is a two-edged sword. He's putting up good statistics (15.3 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 10.9 apg), but that's a lot of minutes for an injury-prone guy like Lawson and his sore back.
Kenneth Faried, FHot12/27/2014 9:59:00 AM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried went off Friday night, posting a stunning 26 points, 25 rebound line.
Insight: Wow. That's 46 points and 39 rebounds in the last two contests. Coach Brian Shaw had a talk with him recently, looks like it worked.
Darrell Arthur, F12/25/2014 10:29:00 AM
Description: Nuggets forward Darrell Arthur is questionable for Friday's game against Denver due to a strained left leg.
Insight: Arthur (7.8 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 1.4 apg) has already missed the past four games with the injury. Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson will continue to see extended playing time.
Wilson Chandler, G/F12/24/2014 9:46:00 AM
Description: Denver small forward Wilson Chandler should see added minutes for the next month with Danilo Gallinari (knee) sidelined.
Insight: He played 38 Tuesday night, but didn't shoot well (5-of-17). He's averaging 14.0 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 1.3 apg, but those numbers should increase for the next four weeks.
Danilo Gallinari, F12/24/2014 9:43:00 AM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari will miss about four weeks after Monday's surgery on his right knee, according to Sportando.
Insight: Gallinari is averaging only 7.8 ppg and 3.0 rpg. Wilson Chandler should inherit most of the minutes. He played 38 Tuesday night, but didn't shoot well (5-of-17).
Ty Lawson, G12/23/2014 10:30:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson scored the most points he has all month on Tuesday.
Insight: Lawson put up 29 points with nine assists against the Nets. He shot 4-of-8 from the 3-point line and 50 percent from the floor overall. Lawson is overtaking Kenneth Faried for the best fantasy option on the Nuggets.
Ty Lawson, G12/22/2014 9:52:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson scored 18 points on Monday.
Insight: Lawson played despite back soreness and led the team in scoring. Lawson hit two 3-pointers and had four assists too.
Ty Lawson, G12/22/2014 1:16:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson is a game-time decision Monday due to a back issue.
Insight: Lawson is now averaging 15.2 ppg, 10.7 apg, and 1.5 spg. after Saturday night's double-double, but you will have to check back closer to tipoff for his status.
Danilo Gallinari, F12/21/2014 10:56:00 AM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari scored a season-high 19 points on Saturday night.
Insight: He continues to come off the bench so his numbers should remain limited. Gallinari is averaging only 7.8 ppg and 3.0 rpg.
Ty Lawson, G12/21/2014 10:54:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson recorded a double-double during Saturday's victory against the Pacers.
Insight: He had 15 points, 10 assists, one rebound, three steals, and three turnovers. Lawson is now averaging 15.2 ppg, 10.7 apg, and 1.5 spg. Owners should be very happy with that.
Ty Lawson, G12/20/2014 9:36:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson recorded his second straight double-double and seventh of this month on Friday.
Insight: Lawson now has 14 double-double on the season, so half of them have impressively come in the last 20 days. Lawson scored 10 points and had 14 assists on Friday in the victory over the Clippers.
Nate Robinson, G12/20/2014 9:29:00 AM
Description: Nuggets guard Nate Robinson came off the bench to lead the team with 20 points in the victory over the Clippers on Friday.
Insight: Robinson shot 6-of-11, hitting on 4-of-9 3-point attempts. He also had five rebounds, three assists and a steal. It is difficult to start Robinson with any confidence, however, because the previous two games he played an average of 10.5 minutes and scored just two total points. Chalk up his performance on Friday to a great shooting night likely unrepeatable on a gamely basis.
Kenneth Faried, F12/17/2014 2:56:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried (ankle) will start Wednesday night.
Insight: He missed Saturday's game, but is ready to return. Faried has not played well this season, but could be a nice buy-low candidate.
Kenneth Faried, F12/15/2014 4:12:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried (ankle) did not play Sunday and is questionable for Wednesday's game against Houston.
Insight: The power forward has been a pretty big disappointment this season. Big things were expected, but he's averaging just 11.0 ppg, 6.6 rpg. J.J. Hickson would see a lot of minutes.
Kenneth Faried, F12/14/2014 6:56:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried (ankle) will not play Sunday.
Insight: The power forward has been a pretty big disappointment this season. Big things were expected, but he's averaging just 11.0 ppg, 6.6 rpg. J.J. Hickson should see a lot of minutes.
Darrell Arthur, F12/14/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Nuggets forward Darrell Arthur scored a season-high 20 points coming off the bench against the Rockets on Saturday.
Insight: Arthur was 7-of-14 shooting as he led the Nuggets with points. Arthur hit on 4-of-9 3-point attempts and grabbed six rebounds. Great production for 24 minutes, but he will have to do it a couple more times to prove to be fantasy worth. He is averaging 8.9 ppg and 4.4 rpg in Decemeber.
Danilo Gallinari, F12/10/2014 3:27:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari will miss Wednesday's game and is listed as day-to-day.
Insight: Gallinari is still sore in his knees. It appears the injuries are finally taking a toll as Gallinari doesn't appear to be the same player he once was.
Kenneth Faried, F12/10/2014 3:25:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried is probable for Wednesday's game against the Heat.
Insight: Faried has missed the last two games due to a back strain. The power forward, however, has been a pretty big disappointment this season, so he probably can stay on the bench until he turns it around. He should not be dropped though.
Ty Lawson, G12/8/2014 10:31:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson started a new double-double streak on Monday.
Insight: Lawson had a seven-game double-double streak snapped on Sunday when he only scored four points. On Monday, Lawson had 22 points and 12 assists to start a new one. In his last nine games, Lawson is averaging 16.1 ppg and 11.9 apg.
Kenneth Faried, F12/8/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried will not play on Monday against the Raptors.
Insight: This will be the second straight game Faried will sit. Meanwhile, Wilson Chandler is playing very well and should receive some looks from owners.
Nate Robinson, G12/8/2014 1:46:00 PM
Description: Denver guard Nate Robinson (back) is doubtful for Monday's game against Toronto.
Insight: Robinson left Friday's contest and missed Sunday's game. He has no fantasy value even when healthy this year and the only reason he would be on a fantasy roster is as insurance for Ty Lawson.
JaVale McGee, C12/8/2014 1:43:00 PM
Description: Denver center JaVale McGee is doubtful for Monday's game against Toronto due to a sore tibia.
Insight: McGee hasn't been fantasy worthy as a backup to Timofey Mozgov, averaging 5.4 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 1.1 bpg. He's played just one game since Nov. 25.
Kenneth Faried, F12/8/2014 1:35:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried is questionable for Monday's game against Toronto due to a back issue.
Insight: Faried took a fall in practice Saturday and didn't play Sunday. He was considered a fantasy sleeper in the preseason, but he has averaged just 11.1 ppg and 6.7 rpg., down from a season ago.
Wilson Chandler, G/F12/7/2014 7:36:00 PM
Description: Denver small forward Wilson Chandler had a big game during Sunday's loss to the Hawks.
Insight: He was 12-of-22 from the field for 29 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, and five turnovers. Owners cannot rely on that production, but Chandler is a solid option.
Nate Robinson, G12/7/2014 11:00:00 AM
Description: Denver guard Nate Robinson (back) took a blow to the back in Friday's game and is questionable for Sunday's game against Atlanta
Insight: Robinson didn't return after the hit from Rasual Butler Friday and said it was the hardest hit I ever took in my life. He still isn't getting enough minutes to be fantasy worthy even when healthy.
Kenneth Faried, F12/5/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried has been somewhat disappointing this season.
Insight: Faried was considered a fantasy sleeper in the preseason, but he has averaged just 11.2 ppg and 6.9 rpg. Over the last five games, Faried has averaged just 9.4 ppg and 5.4 rpg. He had nine points and three rebounds on Friday versus the Wizards.
Randy Foye, GCold12/5/2014 11:48:00 AM
Description: Denver guard Randy Foye (right quad tear) underwent an undisclosed medical procedure and is not going out with the team on their three-game road trip, according to Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post.
Insight: Foye has lost more than 10 minutes per night in playing time and is averaging only 8.4 ppg, 1.4 rpg, 2.0 apg, so fantasy owners should ignore him for now.
Ty Lawson, G12/3/2014 9:25:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson double-doubled for the sixth consecutive game, during Tuesday's loss to Portland.
Insight: Lawson has been very impressive, and has also recorded a double-double in 10 of the past 12 games. He had 24 points, 13 assists, four rebounds, three 3-pointers, two steals, and four turnovers on tuesday. Lawson continues to improve as the season progresses.
Arron Afflalo, G12/2/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo won't be suspended for his flagrant 2 foul, so fantasy owners can continue to play him.
Insight: Afflalo received a $15,000 fine, but that's it. Afflalo is averaging 14.5 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 1.5 apg and has hit 29 three-pointers in 17 games. His value drops significantly after you see his scoring and three-point ability as he's not much of a box score filler.
Arron Afflalo, G11/29/2014 9:36:00 AM
Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo went 11-of-13 from the free throw line to help score 22 points during Friday's win over the Suns.
Insight: He was also 5-of-9 from the field, with four rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer, and one turnover. Afflalo is averaging 14.6 ppg, 3.2 rpg, while shooting 45 percent from the field.
Danilo Gallinari, F11/28/2014 11:32:00 AM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari is questionable for Friday's game against Phoenix due to a sore left knee. Update: Gallinari will play Friday.
Insight: Gallinari had played well in mid-November, but when his knee acts up he's going to sit. Wilson Chandler is a much more reliable fantasy option who is averaging 13.1 ppg and 5.9 rpg.
JaVale McGee, C11/28/2014 11:30:00 AM
Description: Denver center JaVale McGee is questionable for Friday's game against Phoenix due to a strained left leg.
Insight: McGee hasn't been fantasy worthy as a backup to Timofey Mozgov, averaging 5.6 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 1.1 bpg.
Randy Foye, G11/28/2014 11:28:00 AM
Description: Denver guard Randy Foye's timetable for return from a torn ligament in right quadricep is about three weeks.
Insight: Foye is only fantasy worthy when Ty Lawson is sidelined, which he is not. He's averaging 8.4 ppg, 1.4 rpg, 2.0 apg.
Ty Lawson, G11/27/2014 11:09:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson had 17 points and 12 assists during Wednesday's loss to the Suns.
Insight: It was his third consecutive double-double. Lawson is proving to be a solid option at point guard.
Kenneth Faried, F11/26/2014 9:21:00 AM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried turned in a solid fantasy performance on Tuesday.
Insight: Faried scored 12 points and grabbed nine rebounds, which are above his 11.6 ppg and 7.1 rpg averages, but fantasy owners were hoping for a little bit more from the power forward. Faried averaged 13.7 ppg and 8.6 rpg last season.
Ty Lawson, G11/26/2014 9:16:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson recorded his second straight double-double and fourth in five games on Wednesday.
Insight: Lawson scored 20 points and had 12 assists. He shot 7-for-16 from the field and made 5-of-7 from the line. Lawson is averaging 16.6 ppg and 9.8 apg through 14 games this season.
JaVale McGee, C11/25/2014 11:32:00 AM
Description: Denver center JaVale McGee is questionable for Tuesday's game against Chicago due to a strained left leg.
Insight: McGee hasn't been fantasy worthy as a backup to Timofey Mozgov.
Kenneth Faried, F11/22/2014 9:18:00 AM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried scored 19 points and grabbed eight rebounds as Denver defeated New Orleans, 117-97.
Insight: The eight rebounds is per much right on par with his average of 7.5 boards per game, but the 19 points tied a season-high. Faried also made his first 3-pointer of the season.
Ty Lawson, G11/17/2014 9:20:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson recorded a double-double in Monday's win over the Cavaliers.
Insight: He had 24 points and 12 assists, and shot 9-of-18 from the field. Lawson also shot 6-of-7 from the stripe, and pitched in two steals, but also five turnovers. Still, solid night for Lawson.
Arron Afflalo, G11/17/2014 9:17:00 PM
Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo scored a season-high 23 points during Monday's win against Cleveland.
Insight: He was 8-of-17 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, including four 3-pointers. Afflalo also had four rebounds, three assists, one block and three turnovers. He has struggled to produce consistently in Denver, so hopefully this game will get him going.
Nate Robinson, G11/17/2014 2:02:00 PM
Description: Denver guard Nate Robinson (knee) will miss Monday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: Robinson's limit is set at 20 minutes which means he has very little fantasy value until such time as that goes up to 30 or is eliminated.
J.J. Hickson, C11/17/2014 2:00:00 PM
Description: Denver center J.J. Hickson is still recovering from knee surgery and is restricted in back-to-back games and Monday is the back end of the two-game set.
Insight: Hickson only played 12 minutes Sunday, so might play in this one. he's averaging 7.3 ppg, 7.87 rpg and 1.8 apg.
Danilo Gallinari, F11/17/2014 1:58:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari will miss Monday's game against Cleveland due to a sore left knee.
Insight: Gallinari has yet to prove he's back from injury and appears to be on a 20-minute limit even when he plays.
Randy Foye, G11/17/2014 1:56:00 PM
Description: Denver guard Randy Foye has missed the last two games and is questionable for Monday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: Foye is only fantasy worthy when Ty Lawson is sidelined, which he is not. He's averaging 10.9 ppg, 1.4 rpg, 2.4 apg.
Kenneth Faried, F11/16/2014 5:14:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried was a rebound shy of a double-double versus the Knicks on Sunday.
Insight: Faried scored 16 points and had nine rebounds. He shot 7-for-9 from the field. It is the best game Faried has had in a week or two.
Randy Foye, G11/16/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: Denver guard Randy Foye ididn't play in Friday's game against Indiana due to a bruised right knee and is questionable for Sunday's game against New York.
Insight: Foye is only fantasy worthy when Ty Lawson is sidelined. He has just 12 total point in the last two games. Nate Robinson would see more time if Foye can't run, but doesn't have much fantasy value.
Ty Lawson, G11/14/2014 9:24:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson recorded a double-double in Friday's win over the Pacers.
Insight: He had 11 points and 10 assists, but shot only 4-of-13 from the floor. Lawson also had three rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal, and three turnovers.
Randy Foye, G11/14/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Denver guard Randy Foye is questionable for Friday's game against Indiana due to a bruised right knee.
Insight: Foye is only fantasy worthy when Ty Lawson is sidelined. he has just 12 total point in the last two games.
Danilo Gallinari, F11/12/2014 2:34:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari has been cleared for full game action without a minute restriction according to Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post.
Insight: Gallinari had previously been on a 20 minute restriction, but he comes off that limitation sooner than most expected. He is hitting just 22 percent of his field goal attempts, but after sitting out all of last season, owners need to be patient with Gallinari.
Aaron Brooks, G11/8/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Nuggets guard Aaron Brooks played very well off the bench Saturday against the Celtics.
Insight: He had 26 points, eight assists, and four 3-pointers. Owners should not expect lines like this from Brooks very often.
Randy Foye, G11/8/2014 9:40:00 AM
Description: Denver guard Randy Foye had 28 points off the bench for the Nuggets on Friday.
Insight: The next closest scorer for the Nuggets was Wilson Chandler and Nate Robinson with 14. Foye led the team with 19 shots and 10 field goals, hitting five of them from 3-point land. He also had nine assists. With the Nuggets in rebuilding mode, keep an eye on this guy because he could continue to see a high volume of minutes and shots.
Ty Lawson, G11/3/2014 1:42:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson, who led Denver with 25 points on Saturday night, is listed as questionable for Monday's game due to an ankle issue, according to the Denver Post's Chris Dempsey.
Insight: Lawson is the best fantasy option in Denver, but always an injury risk and here we go again. Randy Foye and Arron Afflalo would see a jump in workload if Lawson can't run.
Danilo Gallinari, F11/2/2014 12:50:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari is stuck on a 20-minute playing limit.
Insight: After missing last season due to knee surgery, Gallinari has looked good during the preseason, but the team will bring him along slowly. He should provide owners with a nice dose of points and three-pointers, when he's allow to go full bore.
Nate Robinson, G11/2/2014 12:49:00 PM
Description: Denver guard Nate Robinson (knee) is on a minutes limit and that won't change any time soon.
Insight: Robinson's limit is set at 20 minutes which means he has very little fantasy value until such time as that goes up to 30 or is eliminated.
Ty Lawson, G11/2/2014 10:25:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson led Denver with 25 points on Saturday night.
Insight: Lawson is the best fantasy option in Denver. He shot 8-of-12 from the field and the free-throw line. Lawson also grabbed two rebounds, five assists and one steal. The only black spot: seven turnovers.
Randy Foye, G10/21/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Denver guard Randy Foye will open up the season as the backup shooting guard.
Insight: He had a solid season in 2013-14 (13.2 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 3.5 apg), and started 72 games, but the addition of Aaron Afflalo and the return of Danillo Gallinari might make it tough for him to repeat those numbers. Owners can target Foye late in drafts.
Wilson Chandler, G/F10/21/2014 5:35:00 PM
Description: Denver small forward Wilson Chandler will have an uncertain role entering the season.
Insight: He is the backup to Danillo Gallinari, but with Gallinari's injury history, Chandler could see extended time. However, with Gallo looking good during the preseason, we cannot reccomend even a late-round pick on Chandler.
JaVale McGee, C10/21/2014 5:33:00 PM
Description: Denver center JaVale McGee has yet to play in the preseason.
Insight: Talent has never been an issue with McGee, but putting it all together has been. McGee may be worth a flier towards the end of drafts, but after averaging only 7.0 points per game and 3.4 rebounds per game last season, we at TSN are not hopeful of McGee producing at a reasonable rate.
J.J. Hickson, C10/21/2014 5:30:00 PM
Description: Denver center J.J. Hickson is still recovering from knee surgery, but could be taking the court any day now.
Insight: He is the direct backup at power forward, but if Hickson is able to get healthy, he could also see time at center. He will start the season serving a five-game suspension, and will most likely go undrafted in most fantasy drafts. However, Hickson is a name to keep an eye on, as he has the potential to be average close to a double-double.
Ty Lawson, G10/21/2014 5:26:00 PM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson should be picked early in fantasy drafts.
Insight: Lawson fills the stat sheet, and is arguably Denver's best player. The fact that he averaged 17.6 points per game last season, to go along with his 8.8 assists per game, makes Lawson very worthy of a third-round selection.
Arron Afflalo, G10/21/2014 5:16:00 PM
Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo is an enticing fantasy option for the 2014-15 season.
Insight: He averaged 18.2 points per game, while shooting 46 percent from the field, along with draining 1.8 three-points per game last season with the Magic. Now, entering his first season in Denver, it will tough to duplicate those numbers, as there are a lot of mouths to feed. However, we feel that drafting Afflalo anywhere starting in the ninth round is appropriate value.
Timofey Mozgov, C10/21/2014 5:11:00 PM
Description: Nuggers center Timofey Mozgov enters the season as Denver's starting big-man.
Insight: He does have JaVale McGee breathing down his neck, but Mozgov has proven to be more reliable since last season. Owners should target him late in drafts, but should not expect much more than the 9.4 points per game, 6.4 rebounds per game, and 1.2 blocks per game, Mozgov averaged in 2013-14.
Kenneth Faried, F10/21/2014 5:06:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried could be line for a breakout season.
Insight: After averaging 13.7 points per game, 8.6 rebounds per game, 0.9 blocks per game, 0.9 steals per game, and shooting 55 percent from the field last season, Faried will have every opportunity to improve on those numbers in 2014-15. He clearly looked like an improved player when he suited up for the United States National team this past summer, and fantasy owners are hoping that play carries over to this season.
Danilo Gallinari, F10/21/2014 5:02:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari has potential to be a sleeper for the upcoming fantasy basketball season.
Insight: After missing last season due to knee surgery, Gallinari has looked good during the preseason. He should provide owners with a nice dose of points and three-pointers, making him a desirable middle-to-late-round pick.
Randy Foye, G10/16/2014 2:32:00 PM
Description: Denver guard Randy Foye will miss the next preseason game due to an injured wrist, according to Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post.
Insight: The 31-year-old put together a solid season in 2013-14 (13.2 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 3.5 apg), but the addition of Aaron Afflalo and the return of Danillo Gallinari might make it tough for him to repeat those numbers.
Danilo Gallinari, F10/16/2014 2:28:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari has not had any trouble with his surgically-repaired knee in the preseason, but he might be a candidate to sit in back-to-back games.
Insight: Gallinari probably starts the season slowly due to limited minutes, but could be useful to fantasy owners by the end of the season.
Danilo Gallinari, F10/11/2014 10:34:00 AM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari looked great in his first game in a year and a half. He scored 17 points with four rebounds, one assist and made two 3-pointers in 14 minutes of action.
Insight: Gallinari shot 5-of-9 from the field and 5-for-7 from the free-throw line. He still has a lot of risk, but when on the court, he will produce fantasy numbers especially from 3-point land.
Danilo Gallinari, F10/9/2014 8:18:00 PM
Description: Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari will not play in a preseason game on Wednesday.
Insight: Gallinari should play on Friday. His best fantasy attribute is his 3-point shooting, but it will likely take him a few months to find his rhythm since he is returning from knee surgery.
Kenneth Faried, F10/9/2014 6:49:00 PM
Description: Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried did not practice on Thursday according to the Denver Post.
Insight: The Nuggets indicated Faried is suffering from an ankle injury. Coach Brian Shaw said he could also miss Denver's preseason game on Friday.
Arron Afflalo, G6/26/2014 6:50:00 PM
Description: Orlando has traded guard Arron Afflalo to Denver for Evan Fournier and a second-round pick. SOURCE: David Aldridge, TNT
Insight: We can only guess the Magic were trying to clear cap space because otherwise this trade makes no sense. This will be a homecoming of sorts for Afflalo, who played for the Nuggets from 2009 to 2012.
Ty Lawson, G6/8/2014 3:59:00 PM
Description: Ty Lawson's sprained ankle is still causing him problems. SOURCE: Denver Post
Insight: The injury will sideline him for an additional 3-to-4 weeks. Luckily it doesn't appear the Nuggets point guard will require surgery. Lawson averaged career-highs in both points (17.6 ppg) and assists (8.8 apg) this season.
