Darrell Arthur drained three 3-pointers on his way to 15 points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals in just 25 minutes off Denver's bench on Sunday.

Arthur had a clear path to playing time with J.J. Hickson (knee) done for the season, Wilson Chandler (groin) day-to-day, and Jan Vesely leaving Sunday's game with a rib injury. He's scored double-digit points in three straight games and is worth a look given Denver's injury woes, especially since he's unexpectedly averaging 1.6 three-pointers over his past seven games.

Darrell Arthur scored 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds, two assists and one block in 28 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Arthur is posting some sneaky late-round value in 9-cat formats over the last eight games with averages of 16.3 minutes, 8.9 points, 1.0 threes, 2.6 boards, 0.9 steals, 0.8 blocks, 0.9 turnovers and 51.9 percent shooting from the field.
