Kenneth Faried (back) is doubtful for Saturday’s game against the Hornets.
Faried’s slowdown/shutdown is in the works and we’ve broken down Joffrey Lauvergne and Jusuf Nurkic a few times so search their histories if you’d like, but we have Lauvergne by a nose ahead of Nurkic on the wish list but Nurkic has a higher upside. He also has more risk. Darrell Arthur was quiet in his last game but we’ve liked him as a must-own player in 12-team leagues for a week or so because of the Nuggets’ favorable schedule and then the Faried news broke.
