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.

Think you got a fair deal with Lakers? D’Angelo Russell: “It’s business, man. That’s how I got to look at it. A lot of things happen in this league and you don’t agree with it or however you may feel about it and at the end of the day realize it’s business.”
First reaction to the trade: “I was excited. I was excited to get a new opportunity to start over, but it definitely caught me off guard. You see guys get traded you never think it would have to be you until it does. New step for me.”
Now Lakers president Jeanie Buss is getting into the mix. Buss appeared on the Petros and Money Show and AM 570 LA Radio and said that Kobe Bryant is the only other rookie to have as much excitement surrounding him as Ball: “No other draft pick, except maybe Kobe Bryant, has had this kind of excitement about him.”
“There’s something special about Lonzo […] I think because he just wants to play basketball, he’s selfless. He has a certain charisma and I think the fact that his teammates at UCLA loved playing with him and all the nice things that they have to say about him, I think he’s going to bring an element that’s very similar to Magic Johnson.”
