I reported on November 27 that Arthur, who left the previous day's game with a leg bruise, played through the injury and had six points, four rebounds and two steals in 17 minutes off the bench against the Suns.
Chris Dempsey, who covers the Nuggets for the Denver Post, tweeted the following yesterday on Arthur's status.
Darrell Arthur (knee) did not participate in Sunday's practice but is expected to be available tomorrow at Utah.R.J. White of CBSSports.com added that Arthur played through both games last week against the Suns despite the knee contusion on Tuesday. If Arthur cannot go, expect starter Kenneth Faried, who is averaging 26 minutes per game, to see even additional time on the court.

Arthur was drafted in the first round of the 2008 draft by New Orleans. The sixth-year power forward played in 76 games as a rookie for the Memphis Grizzlies in 2008-2009, averaging 5.6 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. Arthur enjoyed his best season in 2010-2011 when he averaged 9.1 points and 4.3 rebounds in 20.1 minutes per game. He's averaging 6.9 points and 3.6 rebounds in 15 games this season.
