Will Barton played 31 minutes off the bench in Tuesday’s loss and paced the Nuggets with 23 points, six rebounds, two assists, three triples, a steal and a block while shooting 8-of-14 from the field.
Not bad considering Barton had to be helped off the floor after rolling an ankle in his last practice. He said he’d be good to go and most certainly delivered in this one. Will The Thrill can have this sort of game at any time and is locked into a big minute role for Denver, even as a reserve. His top-100 upside meant he was drafted just about everywhere but you should probably take a quick stroll to your waiver wire just in case.
