Faried will be rested for Wednesday's game against the Warriors, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

The Nuggets have nothing to play for at this point, so coach Melvin Hunt will rest both Faried and Randy Foye for the season finale. J.J. Hickson is likely to move into the starting lineup in place of Faried.

Faried scored 19 points (7-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-9 FT) with 17 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Monday's loss to the Clippers.

It's his fifth double-double in the last eight games. Faried stands a good chance of making it six in nine games to finish off the regular season, as the Nuggets' final game on Wednesday will be against a Warriors squad likely to be resting its key players.

Faried scored 30 points (12-14 FG, 6-8 FT) Sunday to go along with three steals, seven rebounds and an assist in 31 minutes.

Faried scored 29 points )10-14 FG, 9-9 FT) with 11 rebounds, two blocks and two steals in 29 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Lakers.

Faried has four double-doubles in his last five games, but has been a disappointment this season for owners. He will go into next season as a mid-round option with top 50 upside.

Faried scored 19 points (7-13 FG, 5-5 FT) with 10 rebounds and one block in 27 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Jazz.

This was Faried's second double-double in a row. March was his best month by far averaging 14.3 points, 9.4 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and one steal in 15 games. Hopefully he can keep this up and finish off the season in strong fashion.

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.
