Faried struggled in his start at center Sunday against the Pelicans, posting three points, six rebounds, and five fouls in 27 minutes of action.

Faried has been disappointing all season, and it appears his woes continue as he moves to the starting center spot. It's unclear whether it's a permanent move with Jusuf Nurkic out of the lineup, but teammate Joffrey Lauvergne (zero points, three rebounds) didn't do much to dethrone Faried either.

Faried will get the start at center for Sunday's game against the Pelicans, Altitude Sports reports.

Faried came off the bench in Friday's matchup, after missing Wednesday's game with a thumb injury, but will move back into the starting lineup Sunday. Instead of starting at power forward, he'll move to center, as Jusuf Nurkic will sit out with an ankle injury. He'll have both Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari starting next to him at the two forward positions.

Faried (thumb) will play in Friday's game against the Jazz, the Denver Post reports.

Faried missed Wednesday's game against the Suns with a thumb injury but it apparently feels well enough to take the court Friday. He's averaging 19 minutes on the hardwood over his last three games and will likely see around that same total when he faces the Jazz.

Faried (thumb) is considered probable for Friday's game against the Jazz, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

Faried sat out Wednesday's game with a bruised thumb. With X-rays coming back negative on the thumb, Faried is on track to play Friday, and he has a good chance to return to the starting lineup with Jusuf Nurkic and Darrell Arthur both listed as doubtful.

Faried (thumb) won't take the court Wednesday versus the Suns, the Arizona Republic reports.

Faried suffered a bruised thumb in the second quarter Monday against the Nets, and while X-rays were returned negative, he's still dealing with a fair amount of discomfort.

Faried (thumb) is considered questionable to play Wednesday against the Suns, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

Faried injured his thumb in the second quarter of Monday's loss to Brooklyn. X-rays on the thumb were negative, and Faried has been officially diagnosed with just a bruise. It's still causing him considerable discomfort, however, so Faried should essentially be considered a game-time call. A more definitive report should be available once he's had an opportunity to test out the thumb in warmups.

Faried injured his thumb in the second quarter of Monday's loss to the Nets, although he was able to return to the bench in the second half.

He finished the game with just four points (1-4 FG, 2-4 FT) and five rebounds and a block in 13 minutes. Should Faried's thumb injury prove to be serious, look for Darrell Arthur and JJ Hickson to split most of his court time.
