Wrist - Game Time Decision (Updated - 2/11/16)
News
Nelson (wrist) was held out of Wednesday's 103-92 win over the Pistons.

As the Nuggets first suggested when Nelson first suffered the setback with the sprained left wrist earlier this month, the point guard will be sidelined through the All-Star break with the hope that it helps resolve the issue. Nelson will need to demonstrate that he's healthy in practices before the Nuggets feel comfortable inserting him back into his usual role as the backup to starting point guard Emmanuel Mudiay.

Faried contributed 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, and one assist across 18 minutes in Wednesday's 103-92 win over the Pistons.

Faried picked up four fouls that allowed Joffrey Lauvergne to earn some more court time off the bench, resulting in Faried seeing his fewest minutes since Jan. 25. Coach Mike Malone remains reluctant to hand Faried 30-plus minutes on a regular basis, but he seems to have made the most of his depressed court time lately. He's recorded at least 11 points in the last seven games, while averaging 8.6 rebounds and shooting 67.2 percent from the floor in that stretch.

Hickson (coach's decision) didn't see the court in Wednesday's 103-92 win over the Pistons.

Hickson has been active lately with Wilson Chandler (hip), Jameer Nelson (wrist), and Darrell Arthur (quad) occupying spots on the inactive list, but those absences haven't cleared the way for more playing time for the 27-year-old. He's made only three appearances in the Nuggets' last 32 games, playing a combined total of 13 minutes.

Quadriceps - Game Time Decision (Updated - 2/11/16)
News
Arthur (quadriceps) didn't take the floor in Wednesday's 103-92 win over the Pistons.

Arthur has now sat out the Nuggets' last five games with the sore left quad, but he'll have just over a week to heal up until the team's next tilt Feb. 19 against the Kings. The Nuggets appear hopeful that Arthur will be ready to go by then.

Gallinari scored 24 points (7-16 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT) to go with seven assists, three rebounds, and two steals over 41 minutes in a 105-104 loss to the Nets on Monda.

Gallinari's sharp three-point shooting -- as well as elevated court time -- contributed to Monday's strong performance, as the 27-year-old has now averaged 25 points over his last four games. With his health remaining intact, Gallinari has enjoyed a strong bounce-back season after an injury-plagued 2014-15.

Barton contributed 20 points (7-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block in 22 minutes during the Nuggets' 103-92 win over the Pistons on Wednesday.

Through the first six February games, Barton is averaging 15.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, one block, and 0.8 steals in 26 minutes per contest. Though Barton has only seen 30-plus minutes six times since Danilo Gallinari returned to the lineup on Jan. 2, Barton is still providing counting stats that make him well worthy of a roster spot in essentially all formats.

News
Harris produced 11 points (4-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, two rebounds, and two steals across 36 minutes in Wednesday's 103-92 win over the Pistons.

Harris received 35-plus minutes for the fifth straight game, and was able to come through with his second straight double-digit scoring output after being held to a combined 10 points on Feb. 5 and Feb. 7 against the Bulls and Knicks, respectively. Still, the shooting guard only barely cracked 10 points, and isn't putting up the kind of shot volume you'd like to see for a player seeing so many minutes. His fantasy value would increase if he chooses to get more aggressive on the offensive end in the second half, but for now, Harris' appeal remains limited to deeper leagues.

Jokic was limited to five points (2-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists, and one steal across 25 minutes in Wednesday's 103-92 win over the Pistons.

Coach Mike Malone's inconsistent rotations didn't get the best of Jokic on Wednesday, as he still saw a relatively typical minutes load on the evening. However, the rookie was outshone by Jusuf Nurkic (16 points, 11 boards), who ended up playing 24 minutes and was on the court for much of the second half. Nurkic has been slow to return to form after a delayed start to the season following knee surgery, but if he returns to his 2014-15 form after the All-Star break, Jokic could be at risk of losing his hold on the starting job.

Nurkic notched a double-double with 16 points (8-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 24 minutes during the Nuggets' 103-92 win over the Pistons on Wednesday.

Nurkic's 16 points, 11 boards, and 24 minutes were all season highs, and this was the Nuggets' second double-double of 2015-16. The Nuggets have no shortage of centers either. Rookie Nikola Jokic saw 25 minutes as the starter, and the split in playing time was basically dead-even between those two on Wednesday. However, coach Mike Malone does opt to pair the bigs together quite a bit, as evidenced by Joffrey Lauvergne seeing 21 minutes as well. Nurkic may have trouble earning enough minutes to make a steady impact in fantasy, but the team's trio of international centers is undeniably intriguing.

Mudiay managed 14 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT), six assists, four rebounds, two steals, and one block in 34 minutes during the Nuggets' 103-92 win over the Pistons on Wednesday.

Mudiay turned the ball over only twice, preserving a 50 percent shooting percentage and a 3:1 turnover ratio in Wednesday's win. Efficient nights have been few and far between for the rookie, but that's usually what happens when you throw a teenage point guard with a suspect jumper into the fire and let him learn on the fly.
