Ty Lawson (hamstring) will not play on Friday. Eric Green will get the start.

Lawson injured his hamstring recently, and while it isn't a serious problem, he'll get the night off to rest it. Eric Green will get a chance to show the Nuggets coaching staff what he can kind as he is getting the start Friday.

Coach Brian Shaw says he isn’t going to re-insert JaVale McGee into the rotation until his conditioning is back where it needs to be.

JaVale McGee is a big time presence in the paint on the defensive end and is the best center the Nuggets have. You can read more about McGee's season projections in the Fantasy Alarm NBA Draft Guide.

Ty Lawson (hamstring) did not practice again on Thursday.

Lawson hasn't been able to practice in recent days because of a sore hamstring and it is looking as though he will miss Friday night's game against Golden State. The Nuggets are hoping that he is recovered enough to play when they open the season at home against Detroit next Wednesday.

Quincy Miller was released by the Nuggets.

Miller was the final cut the Nuggets made for the upcoming season. Any fantasy value he did have for the season has vanished, and Miller shouldn't even be looked at until he gets picked up by another team.

Nuggets PG Ty Lawson did not practice Wednesday and remains questionable for Friday's preseason finale at Golden State.

Lawson injured his hamstring during a preseason game Saturday and missed Tuesday's contest. It's very possible the Nuggets hold him out for the duration of the preseason as they don't want to take any unnecessary chances with his health so close to the start of the regular season.

Nuggets have officially released Marcus Williams and Jerrelle Benimon.

Williams was given a training-camp invite but there was no reasonable expectation that he would make the squad. The former second-round pick in the 2007 NBA draft will be looking for a new job elsewhere for guaranteed money.

Ty Lawson says he's TBD on the preseason finale at Golden State on Friday, but would like to play in order to keep up his conditioning.

Ty Lawson was one of the best players in all of fantasy last season having averaged 17.6 points, 8.8 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 3s per game. You can read more about Lawson and his fantasy projections for this season in The Fantasy Alarm NBA Draft Guide but you can rest assured Lawson will be one of the first point guards off the board.

Danilo Gallinari did not practice Monday due to a cold. He was checked out by team doctors and sent home. His status for Tuesday is to be determined.

While he is projected to be their starting small forward, there are many red flags with Gallinari. As mentioned in the Fantasy Alarm NBA Draft Guide, he is a 42% career shooter, and only really contributes in points and rebounds. He also is expected to be in a timeshare with Wilson Chandler and Aaron Afflalo.

JaVale McGee (tibia) might make his preseason debut on Tuesday.

McGee has been sideline through most of the preseason after experiencing soreness in the leg he had surgery on to repair a stress fracture. He's still somewhat of a question mark for Tuesday and his status for the start of the regular season remains up in the air.

Nuggets G Ty Lawson (hamstring) will not play Tuesday night vs Portland.

Having suffered the hamstring injury Saturday, the Nuggets want to take it easy on Lawson who just got over an ankle issue. They may even consider holding him out for the duration of the preseason, though they still believe the injury to be minor.
