Barton added three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one triple, and now he gets a full 48 hours to recover for Sunday's shootout vs. the Rockets.

Will Barton hit 9-of-19 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, five rebounds, six assists and two steals in 43 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Spurs. Barton has now scored 20 or more in three of his last five games after struggling through much of January, and just like Wilson Chandler, looks like he's locked into a big role for the Nuggets going forward. The Nuggets are the No. 6 seed in the West, but are in a dogfight with the Thunder, Blazers, Pelicans, Clippers and Jazz, so they should be running at full speed through the end of the season. Barton should be owned in all leagues.

Will Barton (ankle) was good for 25 points over 42 minutes in Saturday's 123-113 victory on the road against the Suns. Barton rolled his ankle at one point, limped off the floor and took his shoe off on the bench. He didn't miss much time, obviously, as he rolled up 42 minutes in the game. After the game he said, "it hurts, but I'll be fine." There was no way he was coming off against the NBA's worst defensive club, and he didn't appear affected as he shot 10-of-14 from the field, including 4-of-6 from behind the 3-point line. He'll face much more resistance in his next outing Tuesday against the Spurs.

Barton posted 25 points (9-17 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal across 35 minutes in Saturday's 115-108 win over the Warriors. Barton drew another start at small forward and ended up leading the team in scoring with a total that was also his highest since Dec. 27. The veteran swingman hadn't been over 20 points in the prior eight contests, so Saturday's effort was a particularly welcome sight for fantasy owners. Given what appears to be a secure starting role for the time being, Barton is a solid option across all formats due to his ability to also offer solid contributions in the rebounding and assist categories.

Will Barton was thrilling during a 115-108 win over the Warriors on Saturday, scoring 25 points with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes. What a wild week. Barton missed the last shot in back-to-back losses on Monday and Tuesday, but this time he was the hero today. The Nuggets were down 12 earlier in the game, but a massive 38-point fourth gave them a win in front of their biggest crowd in franchise history at Pepsi Center. Barton is seeing a ridiculous amount of minutes with 38.6 per game over his last five, so that is really helping him become a must-start fantasy asset.

Barton produced 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists, a steal and a blocked shot in 36 minutes during Thursday's 127-124 win over the Thunder. Barton has now spent a considerable amount of time in the Nuggets' starting five after spending most of his five-year career in a reserve role. The loss of Paul Millsap (wrist) has offered a great boost in production, and Barton has also performed admirably as a reserve in Denver's backcourt as well. Millsap could be back by the end of February, and while that will cause a shuffle in the lineup, it will ultimately affect Wilson Chandler more. Barton has rightfully earned his role at the three for now.

Will Barton had 13 points, three rebounds, two assists, a season-high five steals and a 3-pointer on 4-of-13 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Spurs. Burton's been hot and got a boost by Wilson Chandler missing the last two games with an illness, averaging 12 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five games, hitting just 35 percent of his shots. He'll take a hit once Chandler is back, but still should have fantasy value going forward.

Barton generated 19 points (8-18 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists and one steal across 44 minutes in Monday's 111-110 loss to the Celtics. The six-year veteran's scoring total was second only to Nikola Jokic on the first unit and served as his third straight double-digit point total. Barton had a chance to help the Nuggets steal a win at the buzzer, but his seventh three-point attempt of the night came up short. Despite the disappointing conclusion, the sharpshooter's scoring haul was his best over the last six games. It appears that head coach Michael Malone is satisfied with deploying Barton on the first unit for the time being, but he typically sees a solid allotment playing time irrespective of where he slots on the depth chart.
