Faried (rest) will not play in Monday's game against the Grizzlies, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

Faried will simply sit for a day of rest, much like Wilson Chandler and Randy Foye did Sunday. He will join Ty Lawson and Danilo Gallinari on the bench, bu will likely rejoin the lineup Thursday.

Faried posted a monster double-double Friday against the Warriors with 24 points and 17 rebounds in 34 minutes of action.

Faried is averaging 16.2 points and 10.4 rebounds over the last five games, and it's becoming more obvious that his early season woes were attributed to former coach Brian Shaw. Faried has been playing significantly better under the new system, and owners can continue to ride his double-doubles for the remaining weeks.

Faried scored a team-high 19 points (7-12 FG, 5-7 FT) with 11 rebounds, a steal and a block in 28 minutes during Monday's win over the Knicks.

In the seven games that Jusuf Nurkic has missed since injuring his ankle, Faried is averaging 12.9 points, 10.3 boards, 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks. Nurkic is close to returning to the lineup, however, so Faried's run of solid fantasy value could be about to end.

Faried cooled off Saturday against the Rockets, scoring only four points (1-5 FG) to go with nine rebounds, two steals, and three blocks in 34 minutes.

Despite the lack of offensive production Saturday, Faried has played well at the center spot since taking over for Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) Mar. 1. Going into Saturday's game, Faried had recorded three straight double-doubles. It's hard to gauge Faried's scoring potential on a nightly basis, but he's proven himself a valuable fantasy commodity in regard to rebounds and defensive statistics.

Faried struggled in his start at center Sunday against the Pelicans, posting three points, six rebounds, and five fouls in 27 minutes of action.

Faried has been disappointing all season, and it appears his woes continue as he moves to the starting center spot. It's unclear whether it's a permanent move with Jusuf Nurkic out of the lineup, but teammate Joffrey Lauvergne (zero points, three rebounds) didn't do much to dethrone Faried either.

Faried will get the start at center for Sunday's game against the Pelicans, Altitude Sports reports.

Faried came off the bench in Friday's matchup, after missing Wednesday's game with a thumb injury, but will move back into the starting lineup Sunday. Instead of starting at power forward, he'll move to center, as Jusuf Nurkic will sit out with an ankle injury. He'll have both Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari starting next to him at the two forward positions.
