The Nuggets signed shooting guard Courtney Alexander on Sunday.

He ruptured his right Achilles tendon in an exhibition game in 2003 while with the New Orleans Hornets and is just now fighting his way back into the league. He averaged 9.0 points and 2.2 rebounds in 187 games with three teams and is not expected to have fantasy value this season.

Courtney Alexander has made an impressive return from a torn Achilles' tendon, but the Hornets probably won't place him on the playoff roster.

"It can't happen this season," trainer Terry Kofler said. "He's working hard every day. The playoffs start next Saturday, and he hasn't even scrimmaged yet. In all fairness to Courtney, he's optimistic, and he's having great success in his rehab. But as far as playing playoff-caliber ball, which is much more than regular season, and much more than preseason, it would be a miracle."

Courtney Alexander, who suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in October, hopes to return for the playoffs.

Courtney Alexander suffered a torn right Achilles' tendon in the fourth quarter of tonight's game and likely will miss the season.

Alexander's loss will hurt the Hornets, but they're still covered at the guard spots as long as Baron Davis, David Wesley and Darrell Armstrong all stay healthy. Davis will probably see more time at shooting guard with Alexander out, increasing Armstrong's playing time. Stacey Augmon will also have a bigger role.
