Nuggets' Kenneth Faried: Will play Friday vs. Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faried (shoulder) will play Friday against the Pacers, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

Faried's status was in question earlier in the day due to a shoulder contusion, but it won't prevent the big man from being available in his usual role on the second unit. However, with Danilo Gallinari (knee) returning to the fold, it wouldn't be surprising if the banged-up Faried's minutes are scaled back to some degree.

Nuggets' Kenneth Faried: Questionable Friday with shoulder contusion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faried is dealing with a left shoulder contusion and is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Pacers, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

Faried, who attended college at Morehead State in Kentucky, will have a large contingent of family and friends on hand as the Nuggets play in nearby Indianapolis, so look for him to campaign heavily to coach Michael Malone to suit up Friday. Given that the injury-prone Faried has only recently returned from an extended absence due to back spasms, however, there's always the possibility that the Nuggets err on the side of caution and hold him out. Faried won't merit much consideration in DFS contests anyway if he plays Friday, as the Nuggets will welcome back Danilo Gallinari (knee), which will result in just about all of the team's forwards sacrificing some playing time.

Nuggets' Kenneth Faried: On 20-minute restriction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faried will be on a 20-minute restriction for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

Faried has taken the court three times since returning from a stretch in which he was sidelined 11-of-14 games. He has averaged 17 minutes during those contests. The Nuggets will presumably keep the veteran big man's minutes limited for the foreseeable future in order to avoid aggravating the injury.

Nuggets' Kenneth Faried: Productive off bench again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nuggets' Kenneth Faried: Tallies 12 points off bench in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faried (back) scored 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 18 minutes off the bench in a 129-114 win over the Clippers on Thursday.

After missing the previous nine games with the back injury, Faried was eased back into the fold in a reserve role, despite his main replacement in the starting five during his absence, Wilson Chandler, sitting out with a groin issue. Faried played well following the extended layoff, but with Chandler on the mend and Mason Plumlee dropping 10 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and three blocks while starting at power forward Thursday, there's likely going to be limited opportunity for Faried to pick up much additional minutes.
