Jameer Nelson: Waived by Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson was waived by the Nuggets on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Nelson was let go in order to make room for incoming free agent Richard Jefferson. The veteran point guard was set to begin the season third on the depth chart, which ultimately made him expendable. Entering his 14th season in the league, Nelson will now look for a new team looking for point guard depth and veteran leadership.

Nuggets' Jameer Nelson: Set to open season in bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson will come off the bench to start the 2017-18 season, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

The Nuggets' point guard competition has long been believed to be between Emmanuel Mudiay and Jamal Murray, so this is merely a confirmation of what was originally expected. Nelson started 40 of the 75 games he played in last year, but will now have to settle for the No. 3 job early on. If the two younger guys struggle, however, Nelson could see his role grow as the season wears on. For now, this will likely keep him off the radar for most fantasy leagues.

Nuggets' Jameer Nelson: Five points off bench in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson posted five points (2-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four assists, one rebound and one steal across 21 minutes in Tuesday's 96-86 preseason loss to the Thunder.

Nelson is a darkhorse participant in the starting point guard job battle, as most of the focus has been on former first-round picks Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay. The veteran guard has been effective with his ball distribution in his three preseason contests, but he's drained just four of 15 shot attempts, leading to a trio of single-digit scoring totals. The 35-year-old was productive at times while logging 40 starts last season, but it would seem likely that head coach Michael Malone will opt for one of the two much younger options to man the top point guard spot to open the regular season.

Nuggets' Jameer Nelson: Starting Sunday's exhibition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson will start at point guard for Sunday's preseason matchup with the Spurs, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.

While Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay have been considered the two favorites to battle for the starting point guard spot, it will be Nelson who gets the call in the top unit Sunday, indicating he may not be out of the race himself. He's expected to get extended run with Murray sitting out for rest, though his role during the upcoming campaign depends on who the Nuggets end up naming a starter. Keep an eye on that competition moving forward.

Nuggets' Jameer Nelson: Will make preseason debut Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (toe) has been cleared to play in Wednesday's preseason matchup with the Lakers, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Nelson missed the first two exhibition contests due to a toe injury, but is finally ready to make his debut. While Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay are currently the top two options to start at point guard, Nelson could still be a factor here after starting 40 games last season, so it should be a competition to monitor until the regular-season opener.
