Guard Andre Miller's suspension over 'conduct detrimental to the team' rescinded by Denver Nuggets

DENVER - Just a day after announcing a two-game suspension of guard Andre Miller, the Denver Nuggets have rescinded the suspension.

The team reported the change of heart Friday and attributed the decision to general manager and executive vice president of basketball operations Tim Connelly. Despite the change, Miller will still not be with his teammates for the games on Friday or Sunday.

"He will return to the team on Monday, Jan. 6th and will be excused from all team activities for personal reasons until then," the team wrote in their announcement.

Miller's original suspension was for "conduct detrimental to the team."

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.

The Nuggets play the Memphis Grizzlies Friday night and face the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.

Miller is averaging 5.9 points and 3.3 assists this season.
