Arthur scored 12 points (5-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and accumulated nine rebounds, five assists and one steal in 28 minutes off the bench on Wednesday against the Houston Rockets.
Arthur has seen an increase in minutes over his last three games (24 minutes per game versus 18 minutes for the season). During that span he is scoring 13.3 points and contributing 6.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.3 3PM. These are solid numbers from a guy who isn't likely owned in your league as he is owned in less than one percent of ESPN leagues. If you're need of a filler in a deeper league or a short-term option in standard leagues you could find worse than Arthur.

Arthur scored 12 points (6-17 FG, 0-3 3P) with 13 rebounds, two assists and a steal in 24 minutes off the bench before fouling out of Monday's OT loss.
JJ Hickson got the start at power forward, but Arthur ended up playing more minutes than Hickson. Kenneth Faried (back) should be back in the lineup soon enough, but if Faried does miss further time Arthur could be worth picking up in deeper leagues.

Arthur played through a bruised knee, and it appears he wasn't bothered it. Still, he's averaging just 7.3 points and 3.5 rebounds for the season, and it'll be tough to own him in standard leagues unless he finds more minutes in the rotation.

Arthur bruised his knee against the Bulls last Tuesday, but played Wednesday and Friday despite the issue.

Arthur is averaging 14.8 minutes on the court over the Nuggets' first four games of the season.
It appears as if Arthur will have a minimal role off the bench this season as he's currently listed below Kenneth Faried on the depth chart. There's no reason to believe this will change in the near future and Arthur will likely struggle to stay on the court for more than 20 minutes on any given night as a result.
