  • Nuggets' Jameer Nelson: Out for rest of season
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson (calf) won't play in either of the Nuggets' final two regular season games, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports. The Nuggets will opt to sit their veteran point guard for the remainder of the season after being eliminated from playoff contention, likely in order to give some of their younger guards extra run. Nelson will finish the season averaging 9.2 points, 5.1 assists and 2.6 rebounds across 27.3 minutes per game while drilling 38.8 percent of his three-point attempts. In his stead, Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) will likely be the main beneficiaries of his absence.

  • Nelson (calf) won't play in Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, T.J. McBride of BSN Denver reports. Nelson will be missing his fifth out of the Nuggets' last six games. With the team's season finale on Wednesday against the Thunder, it appears increasingly likely that we've seen the last of Nelson for the season. Jamal Murray will likely continue to start as long as Nelson remains out.

  • Nuggets' Jameer Nelson: Out Sunday vs. OKC
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson (calf) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Thunder, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. It will be the fourth absence in five games for Nelson, who continues to work back from a strained calf. The fact that he's been ruled out more than 24 hours in advance is not the most encouraging sign, and with only two games remaining beyond Sunday, it's fair to wonder whether Nelson will be back on the court this season. particularly if the Nuggets fail to make the playoffs. Expect Jamal Murray to make another start in Nelson's place Sunday.

  • Nuggets' Jameer Nelson: Out Friday vs. Pelicans
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson (calf) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pelicans, Nick Kosmider of The Denver Post reports. Nelson missed two games earlier in the week due to a right calf strain, but was able to return to action in a starting role in Wednesday's loss to the Rockets. He didn't face any limitations and was able to play 32 minutes, but he struggled to produce during his time on the floor, finishing with eight points (3-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt), five assists and two rebounds. Nelson's calf was still hurting a day after the game, and since he didn't make any notable improvement with his condition heading into Friday's contest, the team decided it was best to hold him out for the third time in four games. Jamal Murray is expected to start at point guard and see significant minutes, but he'll also work in an off-the-ball role while sharing the floor with backup point guard Emmanuel Mudiay.

  • Nuggets' Jameer Nelson: Doubtful Friday vs. Pelicans
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson (calf) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Pelicans, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. Nelson was back in the lineup Wednesday against the Rockets following a two-game absence, playing 32 minutes, but was noticeably hobbled by the right calf injury. He appears to be dealing with some significant discomfort after taking the court Wednesday and will now likely find himself back on the sideline Friday for additional rest and recovery. If Nelson is ultimately held out, Jamal Murray would presumably reenter the starting five, while Emmanuel Mudiay would also see a bigger workload off the bench.
