NBA Injury News:
Denver Nuggets ‘ forward Wilson Chandler, who has been out 10 days with a strained left hamstring, had hope to return to full practice. He has participated in non-contract drills, but coach Brian Shaw has ruled him out of Monday’s game and possibly Tuesday’s game.
Shaw is very cautious with injuries, no matter how small because he doesn’t want any small injuries turning into long term, lingering ones. Therefore, he’ll keep a player out as long as he has to in order make sure the athlete is truly ready to return.
As reported by Christopher Dempsey of The Denver Post, Shaw talked about how he will handle Chandler moving forward.
“I’m being very conservative with him because I don’t want any hamstrings, calves, things of that nature that tend to linger if you let them completely heal. So I want him to get back to where he’s 100 percent before he can really get out there and start doing some stuff.”
Entering his 7th season in the NBA, Chandler has career averages of 13.7 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. Last season with the Nuggets, he appeared in 43 games and averaged 13 points and 5.1 rebounds in slightly over 25 minutes per game.

This season could be a make-or-break year for Kenneth Faried‘s future with the Denver Nuggets. The second-year power forward has plenty of competition this season after the Nuggets brought in Darrell Arthur and JJ Hickson this summer.

The Denver Nuggets played the Oklahoma City Thunder in the second of a back-to-back and lost 109-88. Lucky for Denver they have the fewest back-to-back sets in the NBA this season with 14. The Thunder were not as kind as the schedule makers on Tuesday night, as Kevin Durant...

The Denver Nuggets signed 2-guard Randy Foye from the Utah Jazz just five days after Andre “benedict” Iguodala jumped ship for the Golden State Warriors this past July.
At first, it appeared that the Nuggets signed Foye as a desperation move to replace Iguodala. However, after three preseason games it appears Foye could put in good minutes for the Nuggets...
With the departures of George Karl and Masai Ujiri this offseason, Josh Kroenke has taken the Denver Nuggets in the direction of a more modern front office.
Kroenke hired Tim Connelly as general manager and Brian Shaw as head coach.
"We never want to tell the coach what he has to do: He has to decide the best combinations on the floor, who to play, what to run," said Kroenke...
Nuggets guard Ty Lawson will be a game-time decision for Tuesday night’s game against Oklahoma City after suffering a back injury he called a “stinger” against San Antonio.
Lawson will get treatment tonight and see how it feels in the morning before he and the team determine what course of action to take.
“I’ve never hurt my back before” Lawson said. “If it tightens...

The Denver Nuggets play their next preseason game tonight at the Oklahoma City Thunder at 6 PM (MDT).
-Who will start at the power forward? Last night, Kenneth Faried came off the bench for the Nuggets for the first time since his Rookie season...
The Denver Nuggets have waived forward Reginald Becton and guard Kyle Fogg.
Fogg appeared in one preseason game for the Nuggets, scoring one point in two minutes against the San Antonio Spurs. Becton did not play in any of Denver’s first four preseason games.
The Nuggets can’t afford to lose anybody else. Gallinari is going to miss significant time due to rehab, Andre Iguodala and George Karl left in the off-season. Considering all them factors, it’s essential for Kenneth Faried to take his game to new heights but he must be on the court to do so. #Nuggets F […]
