Lyles mustered 9.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 73 games played with Denver during the 2017-18 season.
Lyles improved in just about every category during his third NBA season as he averaged career bests in points, rebounds, assists, blocks, field-goal percentage and free-throw percentage. The former Kentucky Wildcat is signed with the Nuggets next year and will make about $3.4 million.
Lyles scored 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt) to go along with five rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 14 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 114-110 loss to the Raptors.
Lyles did't even play a third of the game, but he was locked in as a shooter and rebounded well while contributing a respectable line. The third-year forward has played quite well on a per-minute basis this season, but his role is still limited by the plethora of veteran frontcourt options on the roster. He should continue to deliver spotty production as long as this pattern continues.
Lyles scored 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3PT) to go with four rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes during Saturday's 101-94 loss to Memphis.
While playing 20 minutes or less in his last seven games, Lyles has averaged 8.0 points on 6.8 shots per game. On Saturday, the forward kicked it up a notch with his bench leading 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting. Playing as mostly a bench player this season, Lyles has thrived in his first season in Denver. Reaching career-highs in points (10.5), rebounds (4.9) and assists (1.3), he has proved to be a valuable option as Denver's leading bench scorer this season.
Lyles had 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), two blocks and one steal in 17 minutes during Thursday's 134-123 victory over Milwaukee.
Lyles has been trending down over the past couple of weeks and has seen his minutes dip of late. Paul Millsap (wrist) is due back in about two weeks which will also impact on Lyles' ability to produce. He is still an ok hold but his value is likely going to expire in the coming weeks.
Lyles produced 11 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and two rebounds across 17 minutes in Tuesday's 117-109 win over the Spurs.
Lyles had experienced a downturn against the Suns last Saturday, scoring in single digits due to a 3-for-11 shooting night. However, the third-year forward bounced back against the Nuggets to generate his fourth double-digit scoring effort in the last five games, and he's supplemented that production with between six and 10 boards in four contests during that span as well. While his minutes did drop into the teens Tuesday, Lyles is usually the beneficiary of greater playing time, which helps keep his scoring and rebounding contributions at serviceable levels.
