Kenneth Faried will start in Saturday’s game against the Pistons and Nikola Jokic will come off the bench.
This is actually a good thing for Jokic’s value if it means getting him more minutes away from Jusuf Nurkic, and it’s also a classic showcase move for the Nuggets and Faried. The Pistons also roll out heavy centers and light power forwards, so the configuration makes sense from that point of view, too. Jokic owners are probably at a fever panic point right now so throw those offers out before the game starts and give them a deadline.
