Michael Malone confirmed that Jameer Nelson will not start at point guard for the Nuggets this season.
Right now it’s between Emmanuel Mudiay and Jamal Murray, with Murray the likely victor here. Murray looked comfortable during his stint at point guard during the preseason while Mudiay still struggles too much to be given big time minutes. Murray could be mid-round value guy if given 30-plus minutes a night while Nelson is nothing more than a deep league option at this point.
