Nuggets' Kenneth Faried: Productive off bench again Saturday
Faried tallied 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block over 23 minutes in Saturday's 109-105 loss to the Rockets.
Faried came off the bench once again and was productive, just as he had been Thursday against the Clippers. Coach Mike Malone has apparently opted to keep Mason Plumlee running with the starters for the time being, as he's shown an ability to successfully co-exist with fellow big man Nikola Jokic. Faried has proven capable of flourishing on the second unit in the past, so fantasy owners need to hang on to the energetic forward in all formats.
