Darrell Arthur returned to the Nuggets lineup Saturday night. But in order to keep the veteran forward in uniform on a nightly basis, Arthur’s minutes might have to be monitored the remainder of the season. “Yeah, probably through the rest of the year that’s what we’ll have to do,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “Even with practices I’m going to have to limit him. The one thing I love about Darrell, he knows one speed and one way to play, and that’s hard.” Arthur missed three games with left knee soreness, a complication stemming from an offseason lateral release knee procedure.
“I wanted to play today, I wanted to,” he said. “So we’ll just see. I want to get back out there as soon as possible, especially after practicing Tuesday. I felt pretty good. We’ll see how it goes. I trust (the training staff), they’re going to make sure I’m right. I want to come back, be 100 percent and be good to go.” Meanwhile, Arthur has experienced a couple of small setbacks in his recovery from arthroscopic knee surgery. He experienced some swelling in the knee after Monday’s practice and had a treatment day on Tuesday. “I think I’m day-by-day right now,” Arthur said.

A source confirmed that Boston was in discussions with the Pacers about George, however, and indicated that the team would have interest in reviving the talks, but is unsure where the Pacers stand in the process.
A source said the Timberwolves turned down a slightly lesser offer in a deal for Butler last season that included LaVine and Dunn. Of course, LaVine was still healthy then and Dunn was a much-hyped prospect rather than a second-year guard whose potential had taken a mild hit.
League sources said Knicks president Phil Jackson’s trade requests to at least two teams were beyond extreme and that they may have just been a ploy to motivate Porzingis, the 7-foot-3 Latvian who seemed to anger Jackson by skipping an end-of-season exit interview.
Running counter to that type of forthcomingness is Kristaps Porzingis’ decision to skip his exit meeting, which Oakley told the Daily News was the wrong move. It especially annoys Oakley that Porzingis had the audacity to pull that off as a second-year player with a 63-101 record on his resume
“He’s wrong for that. You can’t do that,” Oakley told the News on Friday, two days before his debut as a player/coach with Ice Cube’s Big3 League at Barclays Center. “Not being two years in the league and you’ve been on the team two years and you won 32 games and 31 games. I mean, you don’t do that. Especially when you’re in town (at the same time the meeting was supposed to take place). You don’t do that. That’s wrong.”
“(Porzingis) should tell (Jackson) himself. That’s why you got a mouth,” Oakley said. “All they can do is trade you or keep you. But you got to realize that you have an opinion too. You can’t worry about what they will do. But all you can do is tell them to respect you. When they disrespect you, you have a right to say something to them. If you disrespect them, they have a right to say something to you. You can’t be sensitive. It’s a two-way street.”
