Nuggets' Darrell Arthur: Will be limited to begin camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arthur (knee) will face limitations to begin training camp, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Arthur underwent a procedure on his left knee over the summer, and while he'll participate in the team's first practice Tuesday, coach Mike Malone indicated that the veteran will likely be held out of action Wednesday to limit the strain on his knee. Barring a setback, Arthur should have no trouble returning to full health prior to the start of the regular season. In 2016-17, Arthur averaged 6.4 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists in just under 16 minutes per game.

Nuggets' Emmanuel Mudiay: Will have to earn starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nuggets coach Mike Malone said Monday that the team will hold an open competition for the starting point guard job, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Malone's comments aren't overly surprising considering Mudiay's struggles over the last two seasons, and it appears as though he'll compete with second-year guard Jamal Murray and veteran Jameer Nelson for the starting job. In 55 games last season, Mudiay made 41 starts and averaged 11.0 points, 3.9 assists and 3.2 rebounds, but he shot just 37.7 percent from the field and 31.5 percent from three. If he's unable to improve his efficiency, the Nuggets could pivot to Murray -- a high-upside second-year guard -- or roll with Nelson, who's by far the most experienced and may have the highest floor of the three. Malone also confirmed Monday that his other four starters will be Gary Harris, Wilson Chandler, Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic.

Nuggets' Mason Plumlee: Re-ups with Denver on three-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plumlee re-signed with the Nuggets on Monday on a three-year, $41 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Since Plumlee was a restricted free agent, the Nuggets had the ability to match any offer sheet the big man would have received from another team, but with few teams having the existing cap space to submit a competitive contract to Plumlee, he was content to stick around in Denver. Though he saw his numbers drop across the board while playing second fiddle to Nikola Jokic after coming over via trade from the Trail Blazers last February, Plumlee's combination of size (6-foot-11, 255 pounds), athleticism and passing skills make him a viable rotational big man for just about any team. Plumlee isn't likely to see his role grow much in his first full season in Denver with Paul Millsap and Jokic entrenched as the clear frontcourt starters, but Plumlee and Kenneth Faried should form a high-energy tandem on the second unit. Look for Plumlee to receive around 15-to-25 minutes per game while coming off the bench, which will likely relegate his utility to deeper fantasy formats.
