  • Kenneth Faried: Finds offensive touch

    Faried recorded 23 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds and three blocks over 24 minutes during Tuesday's 120-94 defeat to the Skyhawks.

    The veteran struggled with his shot mightily in the Gold's last contest, but Faried found his rhythm Tuesday. His 23 points marked a new season-high while also marking a team-best during the defeat to the Skyhawks. This was an encouraging bounce-back game out of the 32-year-old.

  • Kenneth Faried: Solid despite rough shooting

    Faried totaled four points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt), 15 rebounds, three steals and three blocks over 28 minutes Saturday's 99-92 victory over the Charge.

    The veteran big shot just 20 percent from the floor and failed to top even five points, but Faried was still able to affect the game in other ways. The 32-year-old's 15 rebounds were by far a team-high while he was also able to record six combined blocks and steals. If Faried can figure out his scoring, it would not be surprising to see him back in the big leagues at some point this year.

  • Kenneth Faried: Double-double in debut

    Faried finished with 20 points (7-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist and one block across 27 minutes during Wednesday 's 127-108 win over Westchester.

    The veteran big looked good in his first action with the Gold since signing with the team. Faried even showed off his improved shooting, drilling two out of four triples in the win. With COVID still heavily present in the league, it would not be too surprising to see Faried eventually make his way back to the Nuggets' official roster.

  • Kenneth Faried: Joins G League team

    Faired signed a G League contract with the Grand Rapids Gold on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Faired, who attempted to make an NBA return in February, spent his first seven seasons with the Nuggets and will now get to rejoin their organization as a member of their G League affiliate. The 32-year-old hasn't played in an NBA game since the 2018-19 season, which he spilt between Houston and Brooklyn. It's unclear what his role will be, but he will likely be considered for an NBA gig as teams around the league continue to be decimated by COVID-19.

  • Kenneth Faried: Eyeing NBA comeback

    Faried is working out in Los Angeles in hopes of signing with an NBA team, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The 31-year-old made a name for himself as a high-energy big man early in his career with the Nuggets, but he fell out of the league a few years ago, last appearing in an NBA game during the 2018-19 season, which he split between Houston and Brooklyn. At his peak, Faried averaged a near-double-double, but he offered very few contributions in any categories outside of points and rebounds.

  • Rockets' Kenneth Faried: Available Friday

    Faried (personal) is available for Friday's Game 6 matchup with the Warriors, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

  • Rockets' Kenneth Faried: Listed as inactive

    Faried is listed as inactive due to personal reasons for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Warriors, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

    Faried is slated to miss Wednesday's game due to personal reason. While it's unclear what exactly Faried's dealing with, his absence won't have much of an impact on the Rockets rotations considering he's managed just five minutes of run so far in Round 2.

  • Rockets' Kenneth Faried: Efficient contribution in Game 1 win

    Faried managed 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and six rebounds in 16 minutes during Sunday's 122-90 victory over Utah.

    Faried saw a decent amount of playing time in Game 1 of the Rockets series against the Jazz, taking advantage of the blowout. He missed only one field-goal on his way to 11 points, adding six boards in 16 minutes. He will likely see less action if and when the games become closer but he has certainly been a solid pickup for the Rockets and has to be loving life after being out of the rotation in Brooklyn earlier in the season.

  • Rockets' Kenneth Faried: Sneaky double-double in return

    Faried ended with 12 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 130-105 victory over the Kings.

    Faried returned after missing three straight games with a knee injury, recording 12 points and 11 rebounds in 21 minutes. It was initially thought Faried would miss Tuesday's game to ensure his availability for Wednesday. Surprisingly, Faried was in action and rewarded those owners who may have streamed him in. Given the reports, there is a decent chance he misses Wednesday's game against the Clippers with Nene likely to replace him in the lineup.
