Arthur Active vs. Timberwolves
Tuesday, Dec. 15
Arthur scored six points in 15 minutes in his return against the Timberwolves.
Arthur Key Factor in Nuggets' Gameplan
Arthur was averaging a career-high 20.6 minutes and seven points per game prior to the injury.
Arthur has been a reliable backup to Kenneth Faried and has even played some minutes at small forward when the Nuggets want to play bigger lineups. He doesn't provide the athleticism Faried does while coming off the pick and roll and attacking the basket, but he's a reliable defender in the post and can grab rebounds.
That kind of player is what a young Nuggets team needs. It's essential for Denver's growth that he remains healthy.
