Kenneth Faried (back spasms) has been getting treatment “around the clock” but will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.
Faried’s timetable was put at 7-10 days on February 28 and it seems he is still in a lot of discomfort. If you are fighting for a playoff spot, it may be wise to drop him. If you are comfortably sitting at the top of the standings you may want to wait another week. Wilson Chandler will continue to get most of the power forward minutes. This is a good opportunity for Darrell Arthur to get into the rotation.
Update: Faried has been ruled out.
No Kenneth Faried (back) tonight, as has been documented. But Manimal is described as "in rough shape" by #Nuggets coach Michael Malone
