Jameer Nelson (toe) missed practice on Thursday and will not suit up for Thursday’s preseason opener, per T.J. McBride of BSN Denver.
Nelson is in the midst of an open competition at point guard but seems likely to occupy a veteran mentor role as Denver looks to see what they can get out of their younger alternatives. He should provide a steady hand off the bench and fill in capably if the team needs him to start, but that won’t be enough to sustain fantasy value. Nelson’s toe injury isn’t a major concern.
