  • Nuggets' Kenneth Faried: Out for remainder of season
    By RotoWire Staff

    Faried (back) will not take part in the Nuggets' final two games of the season, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports. With the Nuggets out of postseason contention, coach Michael Malone will opt to sit 27-year-old Faried for the remainder of the season in hopes to get an extended look at some of his younger players. Faried, who was bothered by injuries this season and played just 61 games, will finish his sixth year in the league averaging 9.6 points and 7.6 rebounds across 21.2 minutes per game while knocking down 54.8 percent of his attempts from the field. In his place, expect Wilson Chandler, Mason Plumlee, Darrell Arthur and Juancho Hernangomez to all see additional run at the power forward slot.

  • Faried (back) is considered questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Mavericks, T.J. McBride of BSN Denver reports. Faried sat out Sunday's game against the Pelicans after tweaking his back Tuesday. The injury isn't thought thought to be serious and it shouldn't be surprising if Faried is able to play. If he is held out once again look for Mason Plumlee and Wilson Chandler to see extra minutes.

  • Faried (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Adam Mares of DenverStiffs.com reports. After first suffering from back tightness in Tuesday's win over the Pelicans, Faried was able to play in the Nuggets' subsequent two games, but it appears the injury never completely went away. Coach Michael Malone will hope that a game off will be enough for Faried to get over the issue, but his absence will create a void in the starting five. It's expected that either Mason Plumlee or Wilson Chandler will draw the nod at power forward with Faried unavailable.

  • Faried (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Nick Kosmider of the Denver Post reports. Faried has been playing through a recent back injury, but he's seen his minutes limited to 17, 13 and 10 across the Nuggets last three games, so it appears they could be attempting to manage his workload. He's been given a questionable designation ahead of Sunday's contest and another update should be provided after he's able to test out the injury during pregame warmups.

  • Faried (back) has been cleared to play in Wednesday's matchup with the Rockets, radio play-by-play announcer Jason Kosmicki reports Faried had to leave Tuesday's game against the Pelicans early with tightness in his back, but it appears he's responded well to treatment and won't miss any time because of the injury. He's started each of the last three games at power forward, so barring any late changes, look for him to remain with the top unit. That said, it wouldn't be surprising if the Nuggets attempted to limit his minutes a bit to avoid another flare up.
