Nuggets' Will Barton: Solid in Wednesday spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton supplied 17 points (7-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 109-104 loss to the Clippers.

Barton drew the start at point guard with Jamal Murray (concussion) sidelined, and he did a largely solid job in the latter's absence. However, he also committed a back-breaking turnover, as he had the ball stolen by the Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell with under two seconds remaining and the Nuggets trailing by a 106-104 score. Barton has posted double-digit scoring in nine of the last 11 contests and is averaging a solid 13.6 points across 30.8 minutes in nine January games. Barton could be in line for another start if Murray is forced to sit out Friday's matchup against the Suns.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Starting second straight game Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton will start at point guard for Wednesday's game against the Clippers, T.J. McBride of Mile High Sports reports.

Barton entered the top unit on Tuesday with the Nuggets going small and while they'll likely switch back to a bigger lineup Wednesday, Barton will shift over and start at point guard with Jamal Murray sitting out with a concussion. Look for Barton to take on an expanded role once again after posting 22 points, five rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block over 42 minutes Tuesday. Due to the uncertainty surrounding head injuries, Barton could pick up multiple starts at point guard moving forward depending on Murray's recovery process.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Scores 22 in Tuesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton scored 22 points (9-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding six assists, five rebounds, a steal and a block in 42 minutes during Tuesday's 105-102 win over the Mavericks.

He led the Nuggets in court time on the night, and as a result topped 20 points for the first time since Dec. 27. The Nuggets fell apart defensively in the fourth quarter and nearly let the Mavs steal the game, so coach Michael Malone may not be done tinkering with his lineup, but if Barton does stick in the starting five it should lead to more consistent production for the 27-year-old.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton will get the start at small forward for Tuesday's tilt against the Mavericks, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

Coach Mike Malone hinted during pregame that he may shakeup the starting lineup, and it turns out Barton will be the beneficiary. He has averaged 17.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.0 assists across a healthy 38.0 minutes in nine starts this season.

Nuggets' Will Barton: Team-high scoring total in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barton managed 17 points (5-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 40 minutes in Friday's 87-78 win over the Grizzlies.

Barton drew the start for Gary Harris (personal) and finished with a team-high scoring total. The veteran sharpshooter has posted double-digit scoring efforts in seven of the last eight contests, and he's accomplished the feat with multiple substandard shooting efforts. Barton has shot between 16.7 percent and 38.5 percent in seven of the last 10 games, but his typically robust usage continues to help prop up his point totals.
