Stokes (foot) was waived by the Nuggets on Tuesday, Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post reports.

Stokes barely beat out Robbie Hummel for the 15th and final spot on the Nuggets' regular season roster out of camp, and was never able to earn a spot in the team's regular rotation before succumbing to a foot injury, which sidelined him for a second straight game. With the Nuggets dealing with injuries in the backcourt to Gary Harris (ankle) and Will Barton (ankle), the team is likely looking to add depth at that spot, so the banged-up Stokes was deemed expendable. Once healthy, Stokes could get a look elsewhere, but if not, the D-League could be his best option to restore value.
