Arthur scored 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), grabbed two rebounds and picked up two assists and two steals in 28 minutes Friday in a victory over the Kings.

Arthur started in place of Wilson Chandler (knee). It was his first of the season, so don't expect Arthur to keep up this kind of production. In 17.5 minutes per game off the bench this year, he's averaging just 7.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists.

Arthur had five points (2-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and an assist in 14 minutes of action Monday against the Timberwolves.

Arthur, who returned to action Saturday after missing two games with a leg injury, played in his second straight game Monday night. It appears as though he's past his leg injury at this point. That said, Arthur doesn't contribute much outside of scoring, and even so he is only averaging 7.4 points-per-game this year.

Arthur (leg) did not play in Thursday's game against the Bulls, despite being available.

Arthur received the dreaded "DNP - Coach's Decision" and missed his seventh game in the Nuggets' past eight. His next chance to see some action is Saturday against the Grizzlies. In 10 games in December, Arthur shot just 36.7 percent from the floor and averaged 8.4 points and 4.6 rebounds in 20.4 minutes, so he's not much of a fantasy option even if he's playing.

Arthur (leg) will play Thursday against the Bulls.

Arthur was available in an emergency Tuesday but did not play, marking his sixth absence in the Nuggets' last seven games. The 26-year-old will return to action against Chicago, but more cautious owners may want to wait and see how he fares coming off the injury before deploying him.

Arthur (leg) did not play in Tuesday's game against the Lakers, as he was only scheduled to be used in emergency situations.

Arthur's next chance to play is Thursday against the Bulls as he continues to recover from a leg sprain. He did play in limited minutes Sunday, but missed five games before that. In 17.6 minutes per game this season, Arthur is averaging 7.5 points, 1.4 assists and 4.0 rebounds with just 40.8 percent shooting.

Arthur will only be used in an emergency situation Tuesday, the Denver Post's Chris Dempsey reports.

He is still having issues with a lower leg strain, and should not be started in daily leagues as he will only see limited minutes if he plays Tuesday.

Arthur (leg) returned to action from a five-game absence Sunday. He put up two points and two rebounds in 11 minutes off the bench.

While Arthur was out with the injury, Kenneth Faried unleased the Manimal, making Arthur's role somewhat questionable moving forward. Coach Brian Shaw has used Arthur at both forward spots, and given Shaw's predilection for stirring up his rotation every game, it's possible Arthur could flip-flop in and out of fantasy relevance all season. Most likely, though, Arthur will stay in a bench role, and every blue moon, he'll have an impressive stretch, but he's never been a consistent option due to a lack of minutes and a propensity for injuries.

Arthur missed his fifth straight game with a lower leg injury Friday.

Arthur's next chance to play is Sunday against the Raptors. In his absence, Jusuf Nurkic and J.J. Hickson have been coming off the bench in the frontcourt.

Arthur (lower leg) was not in the lineup against the Nets on Tuesday.

Arthur has now missed the past four games with a lingering lower leg sprain. His next opportunity to play will come against the Timberwolves on Friday, although the Nuggets have been rather hush about his injury thus far, and he should be considered day-to-day as a result. In his potential absence, Jusuf Nurkic will likely see additional time on the court, albeit limited.

Arthur (lower leg) won't take the floor Monday at Charlotte, the Denver Post reports.

Arthur will miss his third game in a row due to a lower leg strain, and with the Nuggets' next game arriving Tuesday at Brooklyn, a fourth could very well come to pass. In his stead, J.J. Hickson and Jusuf Nurkic will hold down the frontcourt reserve spots.
