Nuggets' Nene A Game-Time Decision Against Clippers

Denver Nuggets center Nene missed Wednesday’s game with a groin strain, and his status for tonight is a game-time decision. Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post reports that Gary Forbes, who scored 12 points and added three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block, will not start the game if Nene cannot go. The Clippers have a tall front court with the 6-foot-10 Blake Griffin and the 7-foot Chris Kaman

The only hint coach George Karl has given to the potential starter is that the player will be big. Hochman suggests Melvin Ely or Al Harrington could start in Nene’s place. However, Karl would prefer Harrington to stay in his bench rotation.

Ely played in the first two games of the season and totaled three points and three rebounds in 16 minutes. Harrington averages 16.3 points off the bench, second-best on the team, and five rebounds. The injured Nene is averaging 10.3 points and 6.7 rebounds in three games.
