Kenneth Faried PF DEN 6 Days

Faried (illness) started Friday's game against the Celtics and scored 11 points (4-12 FG, 3-5 FT) and grabbed 14 rebounds for his sixth double-double this month.

Faried doesn't score as consistently as owners would like, but he's a machine on the boards. He has double-digit rebounds in seven out of his past 11 games and is shooting 53.8 percent from the floor this season. Owners should continue to use him in all leagues.

Faried (illness) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Celtics, the Denver Post reports.

Considered questionable heading into the night due to the illness, Faried looks like he's shown enough improvement over the last few hours to give the Nuggets confidence about his health. He'll receive the start at power forward.

Faried (illness) is considered questionable for Friday's game against the Celtics, Matt Moore of CBS Sports reports.

Faried came down with the flu Thursday morning, and his status for Friday is in jeopardy. He'll receive fluids and treatment throughout the day, and an update should be available following Friday's morning shootaround.

Faried recorded a double-double in Tuesday's loss to the San Antonio Spurs, finishing with 26 points (9-17 FG, 8-12 FT) and 14 rebounds in 37 minutes.

Faried got to the free throw line a season-high of 12 times in this game, along with matching a season-high in points with 26, which was good to see as he hasn't been scoring as well as he did last year. He's averaging 27 minutes per game so far this season, so the 37 minutes he recorded Tuesday will probably be more than he'll see going forward. He's still a very good source of rebounds and if he continues to record higher minutes totals like he did in this game, his fantasy value will only increase.

Faried posted a double-double with 22 points, 14 rebounds, and two blocks in 30 minutes of action Wednesday against the Mavericks.

Faried has been very sporadic in January, but has managed to average 13.7 points, 13.0 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks for the month. His minutes will continue to ebb and flow as coach Brian Shaw feels fit, but with those solid averages, Faried is a solid option in most formats.

Faried had a stellar outing against the Bulls on Thursday as he posted 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-4 FT), 19 rebounds, three assists, two steals, and three blocks during his 36 minutes on the court.

Faried dealt with "dead legs" this past Tuesday and only managed to play 21 minutes against the Lakers as a result. He's averaging 26.4 minutes on the season and Thursday's 36-minute outing seems to denote that his legs have recovered nicely. The 25-year-old is a double-double threat every time he steps onto the court and should be deployed in almost every type of format as the season continues.

Faried had "dead legs" Tuesday night and played a mere 20 minutes as a result, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

Faried had played at least 30 minutes in each of his last three games and pulled down a ridiculous 58 rebounds during that span, so it's understandable as to why he had tired legs. He won't have a ton of time to rest those legs however, as the Nuggets travel to Chicago to take on the Bulls on New Year's Day. Still, Faried's tired legs don't sound like much of a reason for concern at this point.

Faried had another big game on Sunday, following up his career night on Friday. He finished with 17 points (8-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 19 rebounds, and two assists in 38 minutes.

Thet's three straight double-doubles for Faried and counting. He's really starting to come into form for Denver and now is a perfect opportunity to sell-high on the forward for those who are thinking of jumping ship.

Faried erupted Friday in a win over the Timberwolves, scoring a season-high 26 points (11-15 FG, 4-5 FT) and grabbing a career-high 25 rebounds.

Faried's night could have been even better had he not picked up five fouls in the game. After the third quarter alone, Faried had 20 points and 20 rebounds. He obviously won't be putting up these numbers every night, but now has a double-double in two straight games. In December, he's averaging 10.5 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists. Hats off to any owners who used him in a daily league for this one.

Faried (ankle) grabbed a double-double in his return to action Wednesday against the Rockets. He contributed 11 points, 11 rebounds, and two assists before fouling out after 32 minutes of play.

Faried has played just three games over the last six contests, but it appears he'll be fine moving forward. Still, the young forward has had a massively disappointing season so far, contributing 11.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, and not much of anything else. He's a low-end option in standard leagues for now.
