    Troy Daniels' right hip tightness has him questionable to face the Jazz on Saturday.

    With Will Barton still ruled out, Daniels would have an excellent window open to him if he can suit up. Check back to see where things stand tomorrow, but Michael Porter Jr. is bound to go off either way with so many absences in Denver.

    Troy Daniels (right hip tightness) will not be available for Thursday's tilt vs. the Blazers.

    This news allows for more opportunity for the guards that are left. Without Gary Harris, Will Barton and Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr. has proven to be the team's second go-to scorer behind Nikola Jokić and will be asked to do it again on Thursday. Torrey Craig and PJ Dozier will also see additional minutes and Dozier makes for a sneaky DFS tournament play if his price is right.

    Troy Daniels is officially questionable for Thursday's game with right hip tightness.

    Daniels has played a big role for the Nuggets in the bubble as they're shorthanded on guards, so it's a bummer to see him as questionable. If he suits up, you can expect him to see the same usage as before with Gary Harris (right hip) and Will Barton (knee) out.

    Troy Daniels caught fire from deep on Saturday, hitting seven three pointers on his way to scoring 28 points on 9-of-17 shooting from the field.

    Daniels has a reputation for being a sharpshooter and has hit 11 three pointers in his first two scrimmages in Orlando. Daniels won't be a consistent part of Denver's rotation, but his recent play could earn him some important minutes as a three-point specialist in late-game situations.

    Troy Daniels came off the bench for 30 minutes of action and scored a game-high 22 points in Wednesday's win vs. the Wizards.

    Daniels was the only guard who was able to play on Wednesday and took advantage of the additional opportunity. He finished with 22 points (7-of-15 FG, 4-of-9 3PM, 4-of-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers in 30 minutes. Daniels is unlikely to see many minutes once the Nuggets get the cavalry back but this was a nice showing from the NBA journeyman.

    Troy Daniels told the media that the Nuggets currently only have 8-10 players in Orlando which infers that 7-9 players are yet to join the squad for the NBA restart.

    This news comes as a bit of a shock as it was previously reported that only three players (Gary Harris, Michael Porter Jr. and Torrey Craig) were not in Orlando due to positive Covid-19 tests. If Daniels was accurate with his estimation, this means that there are an additional two-four players that are also away from the team and it is unclear as to why. This is definitely a situation to monitor as the NBA looks to get up and running by the end of the month. Everyone is hopeful that the league can resume in a safe manner in such a difficult time.

    Troy Daniels was waived by the Lakers after playing in 41 games and logged just one game for the Nuggets before the league was suspended.

    Daniels was outside the top-400 on the season, averaging 4.1 points, 1.1 rebounds and 1.0 threes in 10.9 mpg while shooting .390 from the field, .354 from distance and .625 from the charity stripe. Daniels took the majority of his shots from deep and will be asked to do the same for the Nuggets when he is on the floor. However, the 28-year-old is a depth piece and can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

    Troy Daniels will be unavailable Thursday night against the Hornets.

    Daniels is still in the process of signing with Denver. He's not fantasy relevant outside of deep leagues as a 3-point specialist.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Nuggets signed Troy Daniels on Wednesday.

    Denver had an open roster spot after waiving Jordan McRae earlier in the week. Troy Daniels is off the fantasy radar but could help the Nuggets as a deep rotation piece as they hope to make a deep playoff run.

    The Lakers are waiving Troy Daniels but will not immediately add another player to the roster.

    The Lakers are going to maintain some flexibility with that last spot, hopefully adding someone who fills a specific need when the time arises. Daniels should find some interest as a sharpshooter off the bench.

    Troy Daniels (left knee injury) is available for Tuesday's matchup against the Suns.

    Daniels has only been averaging 15.2 minutes per game through the first nine games so far this season. The Lakers are getting healthier as Kyle Kuzma returned last week and Rajon Rondo is returning tonight so Daniels might see less minutes moving forward. There are better low-cost options in DFS lineups on Tuesday as it is unclear how many minutes he will see in this contest.

    Troy Daniels (left knee injury) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Suns after the results of his MRI came back negative.

    Daniels is considered day-to-day, so watch the news tomorrow if you happen to have Daniels in a very deep league.

    Troy Daniels will have a precautionary MRI after tweaking his left knee during practice.

    Daniels is coming off a nice game against the Raptors in which he scored 11 points. However, his playing time has been sporadic overall and an injury wouldn't help matters.

    Troy Daniels played well in a loss to the Raptors on Sunday as he put up 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting.

    Daniels has played better than Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, which has allowed him to keep his minutes. KCP played just four minutes in this one and it is likely that his role is diminishing as he has had a rough start to the season. KCP can be left on the wire, while Daniels is a solid shooting specialist in deeper leagues.

    Troy Daniels scored 15 points on Friday night, hitting four 3-pointers in 21 minutes off the bench.

    This is pretty much what Daniels does. He wasn't a major part of the rotation on Wednesday but was on the court even before garbage time in this one, so he's a gamble of a 3-point specialist in deep formats going forward.
