Nuggets rescind Miller suspension

Views 7

Denver guard Andre Miller will return to the Nuggets on Monday after the Nuggets rescinded his suspension for conduct detrimental to the team.

Miller will not participate in any team activities for personal reasons until then, the Nuggets announced Friday. He will miss games against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night and the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.

Miller yelled at coach Brian Shaw on the bench during Wednesday night's game over his playing time. Miller's streak of 239 consecutive games played ended when he did not see action for the first time in his 15-year career in the Nuggets' 114-102 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Nuggets (14-17) entered Friday night having lost eight consecutive games.

"It just came to a boiling point," Shaw said. "We made a decison and we're moving forward."

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