Nuggets Vs. Thunder: Timofey Mozgov, Kenneth Faried To Start Against OKC

The Denver Nuggets' ever-changing starting lineup will see another shake up on Sunday, as Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports that George Karl will be starting Kenneth Faried at forward in favor of Al Harrington while returning center Timofey Mozgov to the starting lineup.

Faried, Denver's 2011 first-round pick, has already started four times for the Nuggets this season despite entering only 11 games while being limited with injuries. He put up career-best numbers in Denver's previous game against the Memphis Grizzlies, setting new career-high figures with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Harrington struggled against Memphis, scoring just four points while failing to make a single field goal.

Mozgov is returning to the starting lineup after coming off the bench against Memphis, his first game back after dealing with a sprained ankle. Kosta Koufos has started in Mozgov's absence, but he'll be returning to a bench role now that Mozgov is near full strength.
