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.
