Nuggets' Malik Beasley: Ready to go for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley (leg) said Monday that he's received full clearance for training camp, Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post reports.

It's still possible that the Nuggets will limit Beasley's workload early on during his first NBA training camp, but the rookie doesn't appear at risk at being unavailable for the start of the season. Though Beasley's outside shooting skills prompted the Nuggets to draft him 19th overall in June, the team's existing depth on the wing will likely keep the youngster glued to the bench in his first NBA season. Don't be surprised if he's excluded from coach Mike Malone's rotation and spends some extensive time in the D-League.

Nuggets' Wilson Chandler: Cleared for camp, but could face minute restriction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chandler (hip) said Monday that he's fully healthy and has been taking part in five-on-five scrimmages for the past month, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Chandler was sidelined for the entire 2015-16 campaign after requiring surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right hip last November, but has been ramping up his activity all summer in preparation for a healthy 2016-17 season. While it looks as though Chandler hasn't experienced any complications in his recovery, the Nuggets could take a cautious approach with him during training camp and hold him out of select drills. More significantly, Chandler noted that while he doesn't feel as though he'll require a minute restriction, it wouldn't surprise him if the Nuggets impose one on him. With that in mind, in addition to the ample depth the Nuggets have at both forward spots, it could be exceedingly difficult for Chandler to approach the 31.7 minutes per game he averaged during the 2014-15 season.

Nuggets' Darrell Arthur: Expected to return midway through camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arthur (knee) is expected to receive full clearance midway through training camp, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Arthur underwent a knee scope earlier this month to remove some bone debris, but he's already resumed running for a week and a half, indicating he's progressing in a positive manner. Assuming Arthur's recovery timetable remains on track, he'll be a rotation option for coach Mike Malone to open the regular season, but he'll likely see his minutes take a bit of hit now that Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler and Jusuf Nurkic are back to full health.

Nuggets' Malik Beasley: Limited for start of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley will be restricted early in training camp while he continues to recover from a stress fracture in his right leg, Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post reports.

Beasley appears to have recovered from the surgery he underwent prior to the June draft in order to address the stress fracture, but the Nuggets, who selected the Florida State guard with the 19th overall pick, have been taking it slow with him all summer. The 19-year-old skipped the summer league and has been eased back onto the court slowly, a precautionary measure that figures to carry over for the early portion of camp. Due to the team's ample depth in the backcourt, Beasley isn't expected to be a rotation player as a rookie, so there's little incentive for the Nuggets to rush him back into full activities.

Nuggets' Darrell Arthur: Will be limited for start of camp after knee scope
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Arthur is still recovering from surgery on one of his knees and will be limited when training camp begins Tuesday, Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post reports.

Though it wasn't reported at the time, Arthur underwent a knee scope two weeks ago and is still working his way back to full strength. Arthur, who re-signed with the Nuggets on a three-year, $23 million contract this summer, was sidelined for the tail end of last season while he experienced left knee soreness, so that's presumably the knee that he had scoped. It's expected that Arthur will be eased back into full basketball activities as camp progresses, but even if the veteran remains unavailable or restricted once the season begins, the Nuggets should be able to manage just fine. With Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari and Jusuf Nurkic all healthy after missing extensive chunks of last season with injuries and the team adding first-round pick Juan Hernangomez to the roster, the Nuggets have an abundance of depth in the frontcourt, which could end up limiting Arthur's role once he's back to 100 percent.
