Kenneth Faried scored 14 points and hauled in 13 rebounds in another start for the Nuggets on Thursday.
Faried has been a marginal grab after Paul Millsap (wrist) out 2-3 months but Nikola Jokic suffered an ankle injury tonight and left after 16 minutes. The Nuggets will need to lean on Faried and Mason Plumlee (seven rebounds, 20 minutes) a bit more if Jokic, who is considered day-to-day, should miss a few games. Faried should be good for some points, boards and solid shooting from the field but steals and blocks cannot be expected on a nightly basis.
