Nuggets suspend Andre Miller two games for yelling at Brian Shaw

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Andre Miller experienced the first DNP-CD (did not play, coach's decision) of his career on Wednesday in the Nuggets' loss to the 76ers.

And now he'll experience a two-game suspension, the team announced Thursday calling it "conduct detrimental to the team."

Apparently upset with his lack of playing time, Miller yelled at coach Brian Shaw on the bench with about five minutes left in the fourth quarter. Shaw addressed the matter postgame saying, "There's a time and place for everything. In the middle of the arena in front of everyone ... I just tried to calm it down."

Miller did not speak to reporters following the game.

Miller will miss the Nuggets' games against the Grizzlies on Friday and the Lakers on Sunday. Amazingly, those will only be the eighth and ninth missed games of Miller's career.

Miller, 37, is averaging 5.9 points and 3.3 assists in 30 games this season.
