Will Barton scored 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 23 minutes off the bench on Saturday.
Barton has been terrible over the last month or so and it’s really unfortunate because he has had all of the opportunity in the world with Danilo Gallinari out. A lot of his value decrease has been tied to high volume 36.8 percent shooting from the field and high volume 70 percent foul shooting in his last 16 games. There is some serious bounce-back potential here that we don’t want to sleep on in the slightest, because simply put he won’t be this bad. But if you are in a do-or-die situation you might have to cut bait. The Nuggets have two straight four-game weeks to help prop all of them up.
