Jameer Nelson isn't sure if he has a future with the Nuggets.
"Like I said we’ll figure it out and see what’s going on," Nelson said. "I would love to come back here. That’s the reason why I signed a three-year deal. But it’s just one of those things that, it’s a business. It’s a business, and we have to figure it out." The Nuggets will likely try to re-sign D.J. Augustin this summer, meaning Nelson would be the third-string PG on the roster, a role that he said isn't "ideal at all." Expect the trade rumors to heat up if Augustin is brought back.

Jameer Nelson (wrist) was a DNP-CD during Friday's overtime loss to the Nets.

Nelson has been available to play over the past two games, but has not left the bench. With how well D.J. Augustin is playing, that trend is unlikely to change any time soon. Leave Nelson on the wire.

Jameer Nelson (wrist) was available to play on Wednesday, but was a healthy scratch.

Nelson's sprained left wrist was feeling good enough to allow him to play on Wednesday, but the Nuggets elected to sit the veteran. With the Nuggets out of the playoff hunt, we'll likely see more healthy scratches for Nelson while Emmanuel Mudiay and D.J. Augustin will see most of the point guard minutes for the Nuggets.

Jameer Nelson (wrist) did not play vs. the Lakers on Wednesday.

Nelson was a healthy DNP-CD on Monday and we're taking him off the injury report. His inactivity is purely the result of Denver playing Emmanuel Mudiay and D.J. Augustin at the point guard spot -- they have no incentive to play an ailing 12-year veteran in the final stages of a lost season.
Mar 3 - 1:44 AM

Jameer Nelson (wrist) is available for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

Just because he's available doesn't mean he will play, as D.J. Augustin has taken his spot in the rotation. Leave Nelson on the wire.
Feb 29 - 8:35 PM

Jameer Nelson (wrist) is doubtful to play Monday vs. Memphis.

Nelson has been available to play in Denver's previous two outings, but did not actually step foot on the court. D.J. Augustin has taken Nelson’s spot in the rotation, so it's safe to leave the 11-year veteran on the waiver wire in all settings.
Feb 28 - 2:48 PM

Jameer Nelson (wrist) is healthy enough to play, but he has been passed in the rotation by D.J. Augustin.

"You know, it's tough," Coach Michael Malone said. "D.J. [Augustin] has played well for us. Emmanuel [Mudiay] is getting the lion's share of the minutes. You can't play three point guards. Jameer and I have talked, and I told him that right now I'm going to play D.J. as the backup." This confirms that Nelson can be left on the wire in almost all fantasy leagues. We are taking him off the injury report.

Jameer Nelson (wrist) is available to play Friday vs. the Mavericks.

It's unlikely he actually takes the court tonight, so Jameer isn't an option in any league.
Feb 26 - 7:54 PM

Jameer Nelson (wrist) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Clippers.

Nelson was available to play on Tuesday, but ended his evening with a DNP-CD, and with how well D.J. Augustin has played lately there are no guarantees that Nelson steps foot on the court tonight. Even if he does get out there, it'll likely be in short stints as he hasn't played since January 30. Nelson belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Feb 24 - 1:53 PM

Jameer Nelson (wrist) picked up a DNP-CD on Tuesday vs. the Kings.

He was available to play, but coach Michael Malone is probably just being cautious since D.J. Augustin has played well as Emmanuel Mudiay's backup. Nelson belongs on the wire until further notice and we will keep him on the injury report until he returns to action.
Feb 24 - 2:20 AM

Jameer Nelson (wrist) is available to play on Tuesday vs. the Kings.

He was listed as out so this is definitely a surprise. Nelson hasn't played since Jan. 30 and it's not a guarantee that he will see the floor because D.J. Augustin has played well as the backup PG. Leave Nelson on the wire for now.
Feb 23 - 8:19 PM

Jammer Nelson (wrist) is questionable to play against the Kings on Tuesday.

He hasn't played in the last eight games due to his lingering wrist issue. Nelson probably won't have surgery, but he is likely out for Tuesday. D.J. Augustin logged 30 minutes and looked good on Sunday, so he might get decent run again.
Feb 22 - 5:26 PM

Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play Sunday vs. the Celtics.

Nelson has played in just two games over the past month, and with D.J. Augustin now in Denver, Nelson will likely struggle to see his minutes in the low-teens upon his return. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 21 - 4:29 PM

Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play Friday vs. the Kings.

D.J. Augustin will pick up his minutes, but that doesn't mean much in most leagues.
Feb 19 - 9:56 PM

Jameer Nelson (wrist) is questionable to play against the Kings on Friday.

He is trying to avoid surgery on his wrist injury. Nelson has dealt with some range-of-motion issues and he could miss more time. He will also have to compete with D.J. Augustin for the backup point guard minutes.
