Nuggets' Will Barton: Posts 14 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton recorded 13 points (4-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists and a steal across 34 minutes in Sunday's 105-87 loss to the Celtics.

Barton's rebound totals surged back up after he only recorded five boards over the past two games. Barton's ability to make significant contributions in ancillary categories is a boon to his fantasy value and can usually offset a mediocre night of shooting. Lately, his shot volume has been on par with his usual average, but he's had occasional frigid nights from the floor over the last month.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Scores inefficient 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton scored 14 points (3-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT) with five assists, four rebounds and two steals in a 106-96 victory over the Spurs on Wednesday.

Barton had another solid two-way performance despite not being terribly efficient with his shot. It was the forward's second consecutive game with multiple steals, and he's taken advantage of an increased role as a distributor with Jamal Murray (knee) missing the last two games, as Barton's collected nine assists in that span.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Strong all-around performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton collected 24 points (10-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, four assists and two steals across 36 minutes in a 134-119 victory over the Pistons on Tuesday.

After a rough finish to March during which he averaged 5.3 points on 19.4 percent shooting from the field over the last four games of the month, Barton has caught fire with the calendar flipping to April. Over the first three games of the new month, Barton has pushed his scoring average back up to 19.3 points while converting 53.7 percent of his field-goal attempts and half of his three-point tries. In addition to the improved scoring production, he's averaging 5.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 2.7 triples and 1.3 steals so far in April.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Well-rounded performance Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton supplied 15 points (5-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes during Sunday's 119-109 victory over Orlando.

Barton put together another strong performance, and after a rough stretch over the past couple of weeks, he appears to be back on track. His versatility typically affords him significant minutes no matter the state of the team, and while his fantasy ceiling is far from spectacular, he does enough to fall into must-roster territory in most 12-team leagues.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Solid production in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton recorded 19 points (7-14 FG, 3=6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four assists, three rebounds and a steal across 35 minutes in Thursday's 101-94 win over the Clippers.

Barton continued to contribute as a member of Denver's starting five after an abysmal string of games. Coming into Thursday's contest, he had only converted six shots over his past four games, so it was a nice bounce-back for the eight-year veteran.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Fails to make shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton totaled four points (0-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds and six assists in a 104-95 victory over the 76ers on Tuesday.

Barton recorded a team-high assist total but failed to make a shot from the field for the second time in his last four games. The forward has really struggled over his last four games, averaging just 5.3 points on 19.4 percent shooting from the field and 16.7 percent shooting from three.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Virtually invisible Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton was held scoreless (0-8 FG, 0-3 3pt) in Wednesday's loss to Toronto, contributing three rebounds, one steal and one block in 23 minutes.

This marks the first time all season that the 30-year-old has gone scoreless. Before this dud, Barton had averaged 17.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.5 three-pointers and 1.2 steals over his previous 11 games. He'll look to get back on track Friday when the Nuggets travel to New Orleans to play the Pelicans.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Tallies three steals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton scored 17 points (6-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT) to go along with six rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block across 36 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Magic.

Barton continued his strong overall production, though he remained cold from three-point range. Across his last four games, he's gone only 7-for-32 from beyond the arc, though he has still averaged 18.0 points per game in span. He supplemented his scoring line with strong defensive stats, racking up multiple steals for only the third time in his last 15 games.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Strong play continues in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton collected 16 points (6-15 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 3-6 FT), six rebounds and three assists in 41 minutes during Friday's 131-127 victory over Chicago.

Barton continues to make the most of his opportunities, scoring in double digits for the ninth consecutive game. His production across the board has increased over the past six weeks and with Gary Harris (thigh) set to miss an extended period, Barton has quickly moved into must-roster territory.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Scores 23 in blowout victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton recorded 23 points (8-15 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds and four assists across 33 minutes in a 129-104 victory over the Hornets on Wednesday.

Barton cleared 20 points for the fourth consecutive game, continuing his run of elevated play following a slow start to the season. The Nuggets are likely to be without Gary Harris (thigh) for the foreseeable future, so Barton should be fairly insulated in a nightly 30-plus-minute role.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Goes for 20-6-5 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton had 20 points (6-16 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, five assists, two blocks and a steal in Monday's win over the Pacers.

Barton continues to play well out of the All-Star break, notching his third straight 20-point effort in 39 minutes of action. Over his last three games, the versatile swingman is up to 21.3 points, 3.7 assists, 3.7 rebounds, 1.7 steals, 0.7 blocks and 5.0 three-pointers made (15-27 3Pt).

Nuggets' Will Barton: Strong performance Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton had 23 points (8-17 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal Saturday in a 116-103 loss to the Mavericks.

Barton seems rejuvenated following the All-Star break festivities, posting consecutive stat lines with at least 20 points. He does not have a particularly high ceiling with an impending Gary Harris (thigh) return and rise of Michael Porter in mind. However, Barton can still offer serviceable value across deep-league formats and should be able to reap the benefits from his ongoing situation at this time.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Efficient in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton tallied 16 points (7-9 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block in 30 minutes during Thursday's 113-103 victory over the Pacers.

The 30-year-old came into tonight's game shooting just 43 percent from the field, so the efficient line is a welcomed sight. Barton has picked up the pace over his last four games, averaging 14.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.2 three-pointers while shooting 53 percent from the field. He's locked in as the Nuggets starting forward and should continue seeing 30-35 minutes a night the rest of the way.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Back over 30 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton scored 14 points (5-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 36 minutes in Monday's 118-112 win over the Bulls.

The Nuggets' rotation was thinned due to the COVID-19 protocols and other injuries, leaving Barton with the chance to top 30 minutes for only the second time in his last six games. He didn't shoot well from the field, but used volume to reach double-digit points for the second consecutive contest. Barton could continue to see plenty of minutes in the team's two remaining games until the All-Star break.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Quiet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton (personal) scored seven points (3-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt) to go along with two rebounds, three assists and one steal across 34 minutes in Friday's 120-103 win over the Cavaliers.

Back from a three-game absence, Barton immediately returned to his usual starting role on the wing. Though he saw a normal minutes load, Barton showed some rust and struggled to finish from the paint en route to submitting his lowest point total since Jan. 25. Barton has gotten off to a slow start overall this season, though he was showing signs of improvement in the five contests prior to his absence, averaging 14.0 points, 3.6 assists and 2.8 rebounds.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Starting in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton (personal) will start Friday's game against the Cavaliers, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

After a three-game absence due to personal reasons, Barton will be back in the lineup, bumping Gary Harris to the bench. In his past five appearances, Barton has averaged 14.0 points, 3.6 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 35.0 minutes.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Available vs. Cavs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton (personal) will play Friday against the Cavaliers, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

After missing the past three games for personal reasons, Barton will be back in action Friday. It's not immediately clear if he'll start or come off the bench.

February 18, 2021 05:44 PM
Nuggets' Will Barton: Questionable vs. Cavs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton (personal) is questionable for Friday's game against the Cavaliers.

Barton has been attending to a personal issue and has missed the past three games. However, he could make his return Friday. If he does, he could rejoin the starting five considering he's started in his last 21 appearances.

February 17, 2021 01:20 PM
Nuggets' Will Barton: Out again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton (personal) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Katy Winge of Altitude TV reports.

This will mark three straight absences for Barton, who remains away from the Nuggets while tending to a personal matter. With Paul Millsap (knee) also sidelined and Gary Harris (thigh) questionable, JaMychal Green and rookie R.J. Hampton could again be set for increased roles. Meanwhile, Michael Porter Jr. was held scoreless in just 24 minutes against Boston on Tuesday night.

February 15, 2021 05:44 PM
Nuggets' Will Barton: Ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton (personal) will not be available for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

A personal matter will keep Barton out of a second straight game, and his status will be something to monitor considering the Nuggets are heading into a back-to-back set. Paul Millsap (knee) and Gary Harris (adductor) will also sit out Tuesday, so Denver will be down three of its top contributors.
