Will Barton leads Nuggets in scoring Friday night

by Michael Gorman | Nuggets Correspondent | Sat, Jan 13th 1:32am EST

Getting the start with Gary Harris out, Will Barton scored 17 points, leading the team, on 5-for-12 shooting. He also had five rebounds and three assists, with a steal.

Fantasy Impact:

In the starting lineup for the first time in a while, Barton didn't take up his normal playmaking role, with fewer assists than his owners have gotten used to. Friday's 40 minutes probably won't happen soon, but he clearly has the trust of fickle coach Mike Malone. He's not gonna be super exciting unless another offensive piece goes down, but he will stay strong, with definite value in 12-team leagues.
