Nuggets' Gary Harris: Practices Monday, questionable for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (groin) took part in practice Monday and coach Mike Malone deemed the guard questionable for Wednesday's opener against the Pelicans, Adam Fromal of Bleacher Report reports.

Harris returned to practice for the first time since suffering a partial tear in his right groin back on October 5. While the Nuggets are optimistic about his chances to play Wednesday, a return would come on the early side of the initial three-to-four week recovery timetable, and it's unclear whether the team would be willing to risk bringing him back too early. More information should be available following Tuesday's practice, but if Harris is ultimately held out, both Will Barton and rookie Jamal Murray would be set for increased minutes Wednesday.

Nuggets' Darrell Arthur: Limited during Sunday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arthur (knee) was only a limited participant during Sunday's practice, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Arthur is questionable to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Pelicans after missing the entire preseason, but seems to be zeroing in on a return. Coach Michael Malone said he's hopeful that Arthur will participate fully in back-to-back practices Monday and Tuesday, and if that proves true, the forward could be made active for the opener. However, given the extensive time he's missed while recovering from a left knee scope, Arthur's minutes would likely be limited early on in the season.

Nuggets' Kenneth Faried: Will open regular season in bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faried will come off the bench to begin the upcoming season, Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post reports.

Jusuf Nurkic was arguably the Nuggets' MVP of the preseason, so coach Mike Malone will reward the young big man with a spot in the starting five alongside Nikola Jokic. Even though both players are natural centers, Jokic's ability to knock down shots from distance eases the spacing on the offensive end, though it does create some issues for the Nuggets on the defensive end. For those reasons, Faried should remain a consistent member of the rotation and will likely be asked to take on more minutes when the team opposes more versatile stretch-four types, but on the whole, his fantasy value takes a hit with the move to the bench. He may no longer warrant a draft selection in shallower fantasy leagues.

Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Will open season as starting power forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Michael Malone confirmed Friday that Jokic would open the season as the Nuggets' starting power forward, Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post reports.

Jokic and Kenneth Faried entered training camp as the prohibitive favorites to start at the two frontcourt spots, but Jusuf Nurkic, who was limited throughout most of last season following his return from knee surgery, was the team's top big man during the preseason and pushed his way into the conversation for a spot on the top unit. The Nuggets will now deploy Faried in a high-energy role off the bench, allowing Malone to open games with a supersized lineup of Nurkic and Jokic. While both are natural centers, Jokic does offer some range from the outside, which has allowed him and Nurkic to coexist on the offensive end. There will be more issues for the Nuggets to deal with defensively, but it's unlikely to affect Jokic's playing time in a dramatic way as he looks to follow up a fabulous rookie season. Jokic still profiles as a potential top-50 asset in most fantasy leagues.

Nuggets' Jarnell Stokes: Makes 15-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stokes was able to claim a spot on the Nuggets' Opening Night roster, Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post reports.

Stokes beat out Robbie Hummel for the final available reserve spot in the Nuggets' frontcourt. It's not expected that Stokes, who was among the top players in the D-League last season but has yet to make much of an impact at the NBA level, will be regular member of coach Michael Malone's rotation.
