Faried (back) won't suit up Monday in Toronto, TSN Sports reports.

Faried is missing back-to-back games due to a strained lower back, but because he was seemingly a game-time call Monday, a similar situation could come to pass for the Nuggets' next tilt Wednesday against the Heat. In his place, J.J. Hickson should garner another start at power forward.

Faried (back) is questionable to play Monday, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

Faried, who is not playing Sunday against Atlanta, strained his lower back during a fall in practice Saturday. When queried about his status for Monday's matchup with Toronto, Faried said, "we'll see tomorrow." The forward will likely go through shootaround, at which point a decision on his status will be made. If he's held out again, expect J.J. Hickson to make another spot start.

Faried (back) will not play Sunday against the Hawks.

Faried recently strained his lower back and should be considered day-to-day heading into Monday's game against the Raptors. In his absence, J.J. Hickson and Darrell Arthur could see more time on the court.

Faried is dealing with a lower-back strain and is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Hawks, the Denver Post reports.

With Faried's availability in question for Sunday, J.J. Hickson and Darrell Arthur would likely benefit from Faried's absence. If Faried does in fact sit out, his next opportunity to get on the court will be against the Raptors on Monday.

Faried ended the night with 8 points and one rebound in the Nuggets overtime victory against the Lakers on Sunday.

This may only add fuel to the fire about Faried's ongoing issue with the front office, but from a basketball perspective, Faried just hasn't been able to log enough minutes to generate any consistent production. Owners should treat this situation as an opportunity to buy low. His averages this year have been 11.9 points and 7.5 rebounds, which is not as big of a drop off as it seems from last year at 13.7 points and 8.6 rebounds. On the brightside, it seems as though his production is the result of a lack of minutes more than anything.

Faried played with a lot of energy on Sunday, finishing with 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-5 FT), nine rebounds, one assist, and two steals in 32 minutes.

Faried has seen his rebounding numbers take a hit this season, as he's averaging only 6.8 rebounds per game thus far in the month of November. Since his 17 rebound outburst to begin the season, he has only reached double figures in boards one other time this season, while his blocks and steals have also taken a dip as well. With the Nuggets playing themselves into a hole to begin the year this may be only an attitude thing and hopefully something Faried can correct, for his team as well as his fantasy owners.

Faried scored just four points (1-5 FG, 2-2 FT), with five rebounds, one assist and one block in 21 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Kings.

Faried had been having a solid year to this point, but the Nuggets' rotation seems to make him a tough decision for fantasy owners. This game got ugly quick though, and Faried spent the bulk of the game watching from the sidelines. He'll be worth watching moving forward, but in most situations you'll want to give him a go.

He was sporting socks and sandals at the end of Friday's shootaround, but his status for the game is up in the air. It doesn't sound like a major sprain, but it's a situation worth following in the coming weeks.
