Arthur (knee) played one minute in Wednesday's 126-113 win over the Cavaliers, contributing no points, one rebound and one assist. Arthur was cleared to play following a four-game absence due to a sore left knee, but coach Michael Malone essentially kept him out of the rotation, as Juan Hernangomez (12 minutes) ended up seeing most of the time that would have normally fallen to him. Once Danilo Gallinari (knee) returns, it will be even more difficult for Arthur to find consistent burn off the bench, so he's not a strong hold in most deeper leagues.
Arthur (knee) will be active for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, T.J. McBride of BSN Denver reports. As was expected after he was present for the Nuggets' morning shootaround, Arthur will suit up Wednesday, though it remains uncertain if coach Michael Malone will actually call his number off the bench. Arthur is averaging just 6.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.3 three-pointers and 1.1 assists in 15.8 minutes per game over 37 appearances on the season, so there's little reason to roster him in most deeper leagues even though he's now presumably healthy again.
The Nuggets are optimistic that Arthur (knee) will be available Wednesday against the Cavaliers, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports. Arthur, who has been held out of the last four games with a sore left knee, is officially listed as questionable Wednesday, but if he's able to take part in shootaround without any complications, it's expected that he'll be available. Even if that's the case, coach Michael Malone likely wouldn't ask Arthur to play more than 20 minutes off the bench, so he won't warrant much consideration in DFS contests.
Arthur (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. It was previously reported earlier in the week that Arthur, who didn't travel with the team to Houston ahead of Monday's game against the Rockets, was without a firm timetable for a return, so the questionable designation shouldn't necessarily be taken as evidence that he'll have a decent chance at suiting up Wednesday. Arthur, who has been out for the past four games with left knee soreness, will likely need to put in a full practice or two before having a realistic shot at seeing game action.
Arthur (knee), who has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Rockets, remains without a concrete timetable for a return, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports. Arthur reportedly didn't travel with the team to Houston and it sounds like he could be in line to sit out at least a few more games. The Nuggets did say they're expecting him to be back before the end of the season, although that's not necessarily encouraging for speedy return. Juancho Hernangomez will likely stick in the rotation for as long as Arthur is out.
