Arthur plays 26 minutes in Monday's win (Nov 17 12:00 ET )
Darrell Arthur logged 26 minutes and double-doubled in Monday's win over the Cavs, scoring 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting (including three treys) with 11 rebounds, two assists and two steals.
The Scoop: Kenneth Faried played just 22 minutes and was the subject of a leaked story to ESPN stating how the front office wasn't thrilled with the Team USA forward. So naturally a good game like this out of nowhere might get a little bit more weight in the minds of owners, but unless he can do it again we're not moving the needle at all.
Kenneth Faried and Arron Afflalo were benched to start the second half on Wednesday in favor of Darrell Arthur and Alonzo Gee.
The Scoop:Wow. Faried was benched down the stretch on Friday in favor of Alonzo Gee and he has worked his way into coach Brian Shaw's doghouse. The Nuggets gave up 84 points in the first half and have looked horrible to start the year. The Manimal can be viewed as a buy-low guy.
Darrell Arthur was suspended by the NBA for Sunday's game after he was ejected for shoving Dion Waiters on Friday.
The Scoop:This is just a reminder, and this does not help Arthur's case for more playing time when he does come back. Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson will pick up a few extra minutes for the struggling Nuggets as they search for their second win of the season against a terrific Portland team. Ignore Arthur in all but the deepest of leagues.
Arthur has been suspended one game without pay for shoving Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters in the back as he went up for a layup. NBA President of Basketball Operations Rod Thorn made the announcement in a news release Saturday night. The league says he will serve his suspension Sunday when the Nuggets play at Portland.
The Scoop:The play occurred Friday night with 4.4 seconds remaining in the first quarter of Cleveland's 110-101 victory in Denver. Arthur was called for a flagrant 2 foul and ejected.

The Scoop:It was bad and Arthur is looking at a suspension here. Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson will get a few extra minutes.
