Insight: Denver's numerous injuries have allowed Fournier to get 23.7 minutes per game since Jan. 3, and he has averaged 11.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.7 threes in his last 25 games. Quincy Miller also should see extra playing time, but Fournier is the guy to add. Chandler will probably miss at least a few games.

Description: Randy Foye wasn't the only Denver guard doing work on Sunday. Evan Fournier matched Foye's 27 points while adding four rebounds and five assists.
Insight: Ty Lawson's rib injury has allowed Fournier to play more minutes than he normally would. Fantasy owners should enjoy Fournier's scoring binge (16.2 ppg in his last five contests) while it lasts.

Description: Nuggets shooting guard Evan Fournier saw 33 minutes off the bench Tuesday against the Suns and came up with 25 points, eight rebounds, four assists, three threes and two steals.

Description: Nuggets shooting guard Evan Fournier scored 18 points and had six rebounds, two steals and three threes over 38 minutes Friday against the Raptors.
Insight: Nate Robinson had surgery to repair a torn ACL Friday and Fournier is in line to inherit his minutes as a combo guard off the bench. He's worth a look in most leagues, especially in the short term with Ty Lawson sidelined by a rotator cuff injury.

Description: Nuggets shooting guard Evan Fournier could end up playing a lot of minutes at PG come Friday if both Ty Lawson and Nate Robinson are unable to run.
Insight: Fournier was on the floor for 38 minutes on Wednesday and played very well with 19 points, five rebounds, six assists and three steals. He's certainly worth a look if the top two on the depth chart are still sidelined.

Description: Nuggets shooting guard Evan Fournier will join the starting lineup in place of Randy Foye Sunday, according to Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post.
Insight: Fournier has averaged 11.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.0 threes over his last eight games while playing just 21.5 minutes per game in that span. Foye doesn't really deserve the benching, as he shot 52.7 percent and averaged 17.4 points with 3.6 threes per game in his last eight games. UPDATE: Foye is out with a stomach bug.

Description: Nuggets shooting guard Evan Fournier has scored 13.4 ppg in just 21 mpg over his last five games.
Insight: He compiled 27 points, nine rebounds and seven threes in just 39 total minutes the last two games. His playing time hasn't changed with Wilson Chandler (hip) out and he won't be able to sustain his production unless his minutes increase.

Description: Nuggets shooting guard Evan Fournier will start Saturday's playoff opener against Golden State. SOURCE: Denver Post
Insight: Danilo Gallinari's season-ending knee injury has forced coach George Karl to get creative. With Fournier (5.3 ppg in 38 games) at guard, swingman Andre Iguodala will slide over to the small forward position.

Description: Denver guard Evan Fournier started Sunday against the Blazers and had 24 points, four rebounds, four assists, three steals and three treys in 36 minutes.
Insight: It was a career high in points for the 20-year-old rookie from France. Wilson Chandler played 33 minutes Sunday, but Corey Brewer only received 21. Fournier is worth an add for the Nuggets final two games.
