Kenneth Faried    F  Nuggets

 

 

Kenneth Faried scored two points with one rebound and one assist in six minutes against the Pelicans on Friday. It's pretty clear that Trey Lyles is ahead of him for power forward minutes and Mason Plumlee looks like he has the backup center locked up. Faried is probably going to be a DNP-CD his next time out.

Kenneth Faried scored one point with 10 rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 16 minutes off the bench against the Celtics on Wednesday. This could be his last chance for decent minutes because Nikola Jokic (ankle) was cleared for this game -- Jokic was held out, though. Faried was playing the vast majority of his minutes at center before the Jokic injury, so he's a fairly easy drop candidate after getting a DNP-CD on Tuesday.

Updating a previous report, Faried will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Gina Mizell of the Denver Post reports. Nikola Jokic (ankle) is returning from a six-game absence, but will come off the bench. While Faried was originally expected to start because of it, the Nuggets will now go with Trey Lyles instead and bring Faried off the bench. Whether starting or not, Jokic's return should signal a slight decrease in Faried's overall workload.

Faried, in the wake of Will Barton's (back) injury, will draw the start at power forward for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Jason Kosmicki of the Nuggets Radio Network reports. Though Barton is hurt, allowing Faried to draw a start, Nikola Jokic (ankle) is back. With that being the case, Faried may not see as much run as usual. Over his past eight appearances, he's garnered 27.1 minutes, posting 11.9 points and 9.5 rebounds per game.

Kenneth Faried will start against the Celtics on Wednesday. The Nuggets are going to go with Mason Plumlee in the first unit and will bring Nikola Jokic off the bench. Faried was a DNP-CD in the last game on Tuesday, so it'll be really hard to count on him because he'll certainly have a short leash today. He's a drop candidate now that Jokic is back.

Kenneth Faried picked up a DNP-CD on Tuesday vs. the Pistons. Faried has been outplaying Mason Plumlee lately and was coming off two straight games with 30+ minutes, but you never know what coach Mike Malone is going to do with his rotations on any given night. This time around, Plumlee had a nice double-double and was a +29 in his 29 minutes, but it does help Faried's case that Darrell Arthur was exposed as the backup center by Boban Marjanovic. With Nikola Jokic (ankle) still out, Faried's owners should expect to see him back in the rotation on Wednesday vs. Boston.

Kenneth Faried followed up Friday's big game with four points, 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and four turnovers in 32 minutes on Sunday. Nikola Jokic (ankle) was out again but Mason Plumlee (seven points, nine boards in 21 minutes) got the start at center for the second straight game. Faried continues to win the position battle, even if he's coming off the bench, and he's worth streaming until Jokic gets back -- the Nuggets' star center said recently that he still can't jump off his injured leg, so more DNPs could be coming.

Kenneth Faried scored a season-high 20 points in Friday's 103-89 win over the Magic, adding 10 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes. Faried moved to the bench in favor of Mason Plumlee (six points in 18 minutes), but coach Mike Malone turned the Manimal loose early and he delivered, hitting 8-of-10 shots and 4-of-5 free throws. His role is pretty volatile with Malone playing the matchups, and he's now played exclusively at center in two straight games. With Nikola Jokic (ankle) nearing a return, Faried is better viewed as a short-term solution if you need boards and a trickle of defensive stats.

Faried scored 20 points (8-10 FG, 4-5 FT) to go with 10 rebounds, one steal and two blocks during 29 minutes in Friday's 103-89 win over Orlando. Faried scored a season-high 20 points and collected 10 rebounds en route to his third double-double in his last five games. What makes Friday's feat most impressive is that he was returned to the bench after starting the last seven games. Shooting efficiency has proven key to Faried's recent run, shooting 68.1 percent in his last five games. Averaging 8.8 shots during this stretch, Faried has taken more chances on offense than his season average of 4.9 field goal attempts suggests. As a result, he is averaging 13.2 points to go along with 9.6 rebounds over this time.

Faried will come off the bench Friday against the Magic, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. Denver has tried a few different alignments since losing Nikola Jokic to injury, and Faried will now head back to the bench as Mason Plumlee gets the nod at center. Plumlee makes sense as a better matchup against Nikola Vucevic, but Faried is still likely to play a significant role as a reserve.
