Darrell Arthur’s improbable run continued in Thursday’s win over the Raptors, as he scored 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting (including three treys) with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 27 minutes.
Kenneth Faried missed this game due to his ankle injury and Arthur has been putting up mid-round numbers while Faried has been in and out of the lineup. Some writers were joking that this was Arthur trying to play his way into a trade, but whatever the case may be he’s an ideal plug-and-play, with just a hint of upside in case he can somehow keep things rolling. When Faried gets back he could easily fade out of the fantasy picture and even the rotation.
