The Denver Nuggets depth at the point guard position is at an all time low. Starter Ty Lawson is out nursing a broken rib and Nate Robinson just had season ending surgery for his torn ACL. Due to those injuries, could the Nuggets bring back Andre Miller?
Miller hasn’t played since December 30 after he had a public altercation with head coach Brian Shaw. Miller could be a solution for their problem but would Shaw be willing to let Miller return?
There have been conflicting reports about what the Nuggets might do. Ken Berger of CBSSports.com says that the Nuggets have worked out Miller and are considering bringing Miller back.
“Facing a difficult trade market and a glaring hole at the point guard position, Nuggets officials worked out the banished Andre Miller this week and are considering bringing him back, league sources told CBSSports.com.
Miller hasn’t played since Dec. 30 following a public confrontation with coach Brian Shaw. Despite concerns about the 37-year-old’s tendency to put on weight, Miller has lost 12 pounds since being banished from the team, one league source said.”
Meanwhile, Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports provides a much different outlook on the situation.
“The vibe is delusional,” the source said. “It’s a burned bridge. No reconciliation. He’s waiting by the door with his bag already packed. The relationship is irreparable. Under no circumstances does he want to come back to Denver.
“Andre hasn’t spoken about the situation. He’s being quiet out of goodwill”.
I think it safe to say that the Nuggets are looking at all options before they make a decision. But it seems that it would be best for both parties to go their separate ways.
