Kenneth Faried missed the Denver Nuggets home win over the Dallas Mavericks on Feb. 6th for "Personal Reasons;" since that time Faried has only appeared in three games for a grand total of 40 minutes. He has missed 14 of Denver's last 17 games, including nine straight with lower back spasms.
Faried's injury has been a tough one for team continuity as Wilson Chandler and Mason Plumlee have taken turns starting at the power forward spot for Denver. Faried did give an in-game interview to Lisa Leslie, during the team's blowout win over the tanking Lakers, in which he said he could be back soon, which poses an interesting dilemma for the Nuggets.
Denver has to win as many of their final 15 games as possible, but could blending Faried back in disrupt what the team has going? That's a question Michael Malone must answer.
