  • Nuggets' Troy Daniels: Out vs. Blazers

    Daniels (hip) will not play Thursday against Portland, Kendra Andrews of The Athletic reports.

  • Nuggets' Troy Daniels: Questionable vs. Portland

    Daniels is considered questionable for Thursday's game against Portland due to a sore hip, Blazers reporter Casey Holdahl reports.

    The issue apparently arose after Wednesday's win over the Spurs, in which Daniels played 14 minutes off the bench and finished with five points, one rebound and one steal. Look for a more definitive update closer to game time.

  • Nuggets' Troy Daniels: Scores 22 points Wednesday

    Daniels finished with 22 points (7-15 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists and a steal in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 89-82 scrimmage victory over Washington.

    Daniels led the Nuggets in scoring despite coming off the bench, making a case for meaningful minutes moving forward. With the team shorthanded for this contest, Daniels made the most of his opportunity, flashing his offensive upside. That said, it's hard to have a lot of trust when it comes to Daniels' role, and drafting him in a resumption league is certainly not a given.

  • Troy Daniels: Waived by Lakers

    Daniels will be waived by the Lakers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Per Woj, the two sides had been working toward a parting of ways, with the goal of finding Daniels an opportunity to contribute for another team. Meanwhile, waiving Daniels opens up a roster spot for the Lakers, who have reportedly shown interest in J.R. Smith and Dion Waiters, among other free agents.

  • Lakers' Troy Daniels: Sees garbage-time run in blowout

    Daniels knocked down his lone shot attempt -- a three-pointer -- and accrued no other statistics in four minutes off the bench Tuesday in the Lakers' 129-102 win over the Spurs.

    Since popping off for a season-high 17 points in a Jan. 15 loss to the Magic, Daniels has been only an occasional member of coach Frank Vogel's rotation. He's gone unused in two of the Lakers' last eight games and has topped out at 14 minutes during his six appearances over that stretch, averaging only 2.5 points while shooting 27.8 percent from the field.

  • Lakers' Troy Daniels: Pops off for 17 points

    Daniels amassed 17 points (6-9 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound and one assist in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 119-118 loss to Orlando.

    Daniels hit four triples Wednesday, ending with a season-high 17 points. He can be a sneaky source of three-pointers when afforded sufficient playing time. Unfortunately, that is not an every night occurrence, highlighted by the fact he played only three minutes in the game prior.

  • Lakers' Troy Daniels: Scores 12 points in win

    Daniels produced 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt) and six rebounds in 21 minutes during Saturday's 125-110 win over Oklahoma City.

    The 28-year-old shot nicely in the middle quarters with 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and set season-highs in both rebounds and minutes played. Daniels received a more significant workload due to team injuries, so it's highly unlikely he'll continue to produce at this rate unless most of his teammates are out.

  • Lakers' Troy Daniels: Does not score against Phoenix

    Daniels didn't score a single point (0-1 FG) in four minutes during Wednesday's 117-107 win over the Suns.

    Daniels has reached double-digit minutes twice and has gathered four DNP designations over the Lakers' last 10 games. He is struggling to produce when given the chance and, considering recent tendencies, he shouldn't be much of a factor off the bench for the Lakers moving forward.
