Guard Andre Miller suspected for 2 games by Nuggets over 'conduct detrimental to the team'

DENVER - The Denver Nuggets have suspended veteran guard Andre Miller two games for "conduct detrimental to the team."

Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly announced the suspension Thursday.

Miller was upset after not playing in a 114-102 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. It was the first "Did not play -- coach's decision" of Miller's 15-year career.

Mired in an eight-game slump, first-year coach Brian Shaw has vowed to shake things up to find the right combination of players on the court.

Miller yelled at Shaw for not playing him during the second half of Wednesday night's game against Philadelphia.

After the game, Shaw said he was disappointed by Miller's outburst.

"There's a time and place for everything," Shaw said, according to The Denver Post. "In the middle of the arena in front of everyone ...I just tried to calm him down."

Miller's suspension begins Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies. He also will not travel for a game Sunday in Los Angeles against the Lakers.

He's averaging 5.9 points and 3.3 assists this season.
