    Denver Nuggets

    Position
    G
     
    Jersey
    4
    Name  Arron Afflalo
    Born  10/15/1985
    Height  6-5
    Weight  215
    College  UCLA
    3/6/2015 9:32:00 AM
    Description: Guard Arron Afflalo should see a significant increase to his fantasy value after Thursday's night's season-ending injury to Wes Matthews.
    Insight: Afflalo had only been averaging 8.7 ppg while playing around 27 minutes, but those numbers should both increase for the remainder of the season. Afflalo averaged 14.5 ppg with Denver this season and that number should be reachable.
     
    2/19/2015 12:20:00 PM
    Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo has been traded to Portland and his fantasy value should take a significant hit.
    Insight: Afflalo will have to back up Wes Matthews in Portland so his 33 mpg will see a huge drop. He was averaging 14.5 ppg in Denver, but will have to find his opportunities behind LaMarcus Aldridge, Damian Lillard and Nicolas Batum. Sit him until you see how it all plays out.
     
    1/28/2015 10:45:00 PM
    Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo led Denver with 20 points in the, 93-85, victory over the Pelicans on Wednesday.
    Insight: Afflalo hit four 3-pointers, going 7-for-13 from the field overall. He is averaging 18.0 ppg over his last five games.
     
    1/17/2015 9:09:00 AM
    Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo sunk three 3-pointers on his way to 16 points on Friday.
    Insight: Afflalo led the team in scoring although the Nuggets lost, 97-89. Afflalo was 6-for-17 from the field overall with five rebounds.
     
    1/10/2015 9:47:00 AM
    Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo scored 22 points on Friday night.
    Insight: He did so by shooting 8-of-19 from the floor and 5-of-5 from the line. Afflalo is averaging 15.5 ppg, 3.5 rpg, and 1.8 apg.
     
    1/5/2015 10:26:00 PM
    Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo made four 3-pointers and all of his foul shots in a big scoring night.
    Insight: Afflalo was 11-for-18 from the field overall and 8-for-8 at the line on his way to a season-high 34 points. He didn't accumulate many other numbers with two rebounds, two assists and a steal. Afflalo is playing better lately, but he still isn't worth owning in standard leagues.
     
    12/2/2014 4:48:00 PM
    Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo won't be suspended for his flagrant 2 foul, so fantasy owners can continue to play him.
    Insight: Afflalo received a $15,000 fine, but that's it. Afflalo is averaging 14.5 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 1.5 apg and has hit 29 three-pointers in 17 games. His value drops significantly after you see his scoring and three-point ability as he's not much of a box score filler.
     
    11/29/2014 9:36:00 AM
    Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo went 11-of-13 from the free throw line to help score 22 points during Friday's win over the Suns.
    Insight: He was also 5-of-9 from the field, with four rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer, and one turnover. Afflalo is averaging 14.6 ppg, 3.2 rpg, while shooting 45 percent from the field.
     
    11/17/2014 9:17:00 PM
    Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo scored a season-high 23 points during Monday's win against Cleveland.
    Insight: He was 8-of-17 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, including four 3-pointers. Afflalo also had four rebounds, three assists, one block and three turnovers. He has struggled to produce consistently in Denver, so hopefully this game will get him going.
     
    10/21/2014 5:16:00 PM
    Description: Nuggets guard Arron Afflalo is an enticing fantasy option for the 2014-15 season.
    Insight: He averaged 18.2 points per game, while shooting 46 percent from the field, along with draining 1.8 three-points per game last season with the Magic. Now, entering his first season in Denver, it will tough to duplicate those numbers, as there are a lot of mouths to feed. However, we feel that drafting Afflalo anywhere starting in the ninth round is appropriate value.
     
    6/26/2014 6:50:00 PM
    Description: Orlando has traded guard Arron Afflalo to Denver for Evan Fournier and a second-round pick. SOURCE: David Aldridge, TNT
    Insight: We can only guess the Magic were trying to clear cap space because otherwise this trade makes no sense. This will be a homecoming of sorts for Afflalo, who played for the Nuggets from 2009 to 2012.
     
    6/21/2014 4:04:00 PM
    Description: Orlando guard Arron Afflalo has been mentioned in multiple trade rumors and could be dealt prior to Thursday night's NBA Draft. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
    Insight: One rumor has Afflalo going to the Bulls while there's also word he could be part of a three-team trade involving Kevin Love. Either way, Afflalo (18.2 ppg in 2013-14) is unlikey to be back with the Magic next season.
     
    3/12/2014 9:54:00 PM
    Description: Magic shooting guard Arron Afflalo scored 24 points with two threes Wednesday against the Nuggets.
    Insight: Afflalo threw up scoring efforts like this regularly earlier this season, but he came in averaging 16.9 ppg over his last 27 games. That's still good, but nowhere close to the 21.9 ppg he put up in his first 29 games.
     
    3/5/2014 12:42:00 PM
    Description: Magic shooting guard Arron Afflalo (ankle) will play Wednesday after a five-game absence.
    Insight: Afflalo was dealing with an ankle sprain. Moe Harkless started all five games in his absence and averaged 35.7 minutes, 14.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.8 threes, 1.5 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steals his last four, but he'll go back to a reserve role.
     
    3/3/2014 5:49:00 PM
    Description: Magic shooting guard Arron Afflalo (ankle) is expected to play Wednesday, coach Jacque Vaughn said, according to NBA.com.
    Insight: Afflalo missed the last five games with an ankle sprain. Moe Harkless started all five and averaged 35.7 minutes, 14.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.8 threes, 1.5 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steals his last four, but he'll go back to a reserve role when Afflalo returns.
     
    3/2/2014 4:35:00 PM
    Description: Magic shooting guard Arron Afflalo has been ruled out Sunday against the 76ers. He's missing his fifth straight game.
    Insight: Moe Harkless has started the last four games and averaged 34.1 minutes, 16.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.0 threes and 1.0 steals over his last three.
     
    2/28/2014 4:23:00 PM
    Description: Magic shooting guard Arron Afflalo will not travel with the team for Saturday's game against Miami.
    Insight: He'll miss his fourth straight game with a sprained ankle. Moe Harkless has started the last two in his place and has averaged 17.5 ppg over that span.
     
    2/26/2014 6:03:00 PM
    Description: Magic shooting guard Arron Afflalo did not travel to Philadelphia for Wednesday's game, according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.
    Insight: He'll miss his third straight game with a sprained ankle. Moe Harkless has started the last two in his place and had 22 points in 38 minutes Tuesday. Harkless has a great matchup against the fast-paced but lowly 76ers on Wednesday.
     
    2/23/2014 10:17:00 PM
    Description: The Magic won't have shooting guard Arron Afflalo for Tuesday's game against Washington. SOURCE: Josh Robbins, Orlando Sentinel
    Insight: He's been ruled out with a sprained ankle. Victor Oladipo (13.8 ppg, 4.1 apg, 4.4 rpg) figures to get more playing time with Afflalo sidelined. Not that he hasn't been playing a lot already - Oladipo saw 49 minutes of action Friday against New York.
     
    2/23/2014 4:32:00 PM
    Description: Magic coach Jacque Vaughn didn't rule out shooting guard Arron Afflalo (ankle) joining the team in Washington on Tuesday or Washington on Wednesday, according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.
    Insight: Afflalo suffered a sprained right ankle Friday night and will sit out Sunday at Toronto, allowing Moe Harkless to get a start. The injury comes at a terrible time for Afflalo, as he went off for 25.3 ppg over his last three games following a 21-game stretch in which he put up just 15.8 ppg.
