Foye will remain in Denver for the 2015-16 season after the Nuggets picked up his third-year option Saturday, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.

The option on Foye's contract is for just $3.1 million, leaving an easy decision for the Nuggets who'll retain a veteran scorer that averaged 22 minutes per game last season. Given that Foye only made 50 appearances due to various injuries in the previous year, he'll compete for reserve playing time with Will Barton and Gary Harris this upcoming season.

Foye averaged 8.7 points (37% FG, 36% 3Pt, 82% FT), 1.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 22 minutes per game during 50 regular season games in 2014-15.

Foye's 37 percent field goal percentage is the worst he's shot during his nine-year career. The 31-year-old guard is on the Nuggets' payroll for $3.3 million in 2015-16.

Foye will not play Wednesday against the Warriors, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

Foye will be rested, along with Kenneth Faried, as the Nuggets continue their march to the lottery. Expect Erick Green or Gary Harris to start in Foye's stead.

Foye was just 3-for-11 from the floor Sunday in a win over the Kings, but still managed to put up 16 points, three assists and two steals in 29 minutes.

Foye doesn't do much in the box score, but he can help any team in need of threes. In his past five games, he's made a combined 18 shots from beyond the arc.

Foye scored 14 points (5-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes Saturday.

Foye is now averaging 12.6 points and 2.7 three-pointers over the last month, and is getting consistent minutes under new coach Melvin Hunt. Foye is really only consistently helping in the three-pointer category though, but he's a solid option to help stoke that category.

Foye started at shooting guard and scored five points (2-7 FG, 1-6 3Pt) with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the 76ers.

Foye missed the previous game with an illness so there is no ongoing issue here. He is worth considering on a short day if you need three-pointers.

Foye (illness) practiced Tuesday and should be available for Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

Foye missed Sunday's game against the Magic but has probably had plenty of time to recover from the flu. The Nuggets have taken an interesting approach to the final few weeks of the season, resting their key guys in some games but giving them heavy run in others.

Foye is dealing with the stomach flu and will not play in Sunday's game against the Magic, broadcaster Chris Marlowe reports.

Foye should be considered day-to-day moving forward while Will Barton likely sees added time on the court. The next opportunity for Foye to play will be against the 76ers on Wednesday.

Foye sunk four treys en-route to a 16-point performance Friday against the Heat. He added one rebound and one assist in 30 minutes of action.

FOye is now averaging 18.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.3 steals, and 3.8 three-pointers made over the last four games. With the Nuggets resting their starters occasionally down the stretch, Foye is worth owning in standard leagues.

Foye got another start Thursday, scoring 23 points (9-19 FG, 5-12 3Pt) with six assists, two rebounds and a steal in 35 minutes during Thursday's loss to the Rockets.

He's been on a roll, averaging 16.2 points, 4.8 assists, 3.0 threes and 1.2 steals over his last five games. The Nuggets are just jockeying for lottery position at this point, and have little to gain by continuing to give Foye big minutes, but as long as he gets the court time he should remain a useful fantasy option.
