Nuggets' Will Barton: Not on injury report for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton (ankle) is not listed on the team's injury report ahead of Wednesday's season-opener against the Jazz.

Barton left Monday's practice with an ankle injury, but it seems to be causing him minimal discomfort in advance of Wednesday's game. He saw 28.4 minutes per game in a reserve role last season, posting 13.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. There's a strong possibility he's in line for a similar role this season, making him a viable option in many fantasy formats.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Leaves practice with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton exited Monday's practice with an ankle injury, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Barton was unable to put much weight on his ankle as he was helped off the floor, so it's surely not an encouraging sign with the Nuggets' season opener just two days away. With that, Barton's status is certainly in doubt for Wednesday, but the team will likely provide an update on the shooting guard's status after further testing is done.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Erupts for 26 off bench in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton collected 26 points (9-18 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block across 30 minutes in Tuesday's 96-86 preseason loss to the Thunder.

The exhibition-closing effort perfectly exemplified the upside that Barton brings on any given night when his shot gets going. The veteran closes out the preseason slate on a strong note, having also poured in 16 points on 54.5 percent shooting against the Spurs last Sunday. He posted a 62.5 percent success rate (10-for-16) from three-point range in his last three contests as well, leaving him primed for a season in which he should once again see a high-usage role off the bench behind starting two-guard Gary Harris.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Scores 16 off bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton scored 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT) while adding three assists, three steals, two blocks and a rebound in 26 minutes off the bench during Sunday's preseason loss to the Spurs.

The Nuggets' top shooter off the bench appeared to be in midseason form as he lit it up from beyond the arc. Barton has posted strong numbers the last two years in his current role, but his minutes and touches could see a bump with Danilo Gallinari now a member of the Clippers.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Tallies 11 points in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton went for 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt), seven assists and three rebounds across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 122-104 preseason win over the Lakers.

Barton drew the start in place of Gary Harris (shoulder) and in addition to his usual production from long distance, he also served as much more of a ball distributor than usual. The veteran sharpshooter is apparently banking on himself in opting to play out the final year of his three-year deal with the Nuggets after declining to extend his deal this past summer. Barton has proven capable of producing starter-quality numbers in a high-usage role off the bench over the last two seasons, one that he's expected to serve in once again while Harris mans the starting two-guard spot.
