The NBA has already canceled the first two weeks of the 2011-12 season and now fans should expect the next two weeks to follow. According to Frank Isola and Mitch Lawrence of the the NY Daily News, the NBA will announce this move on Tuesday. Neither the owners nor the players appear to be negotiating in good faith and, to keep all the convoluted financials out of it, both sides are playing a game of chicken on who will be able to hold out long enough before caving into the other sides' demands.
For the Denver Nuggets, this means they will miss seven games up to Nov. 28. The season, had a new deal been struck in the last couple of weeks, would have begun on Nov. 16, a home contest featuring Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks in the Mile High City. That game will be one of five home games wiped off the schedule on Tuesday should the announcement come.
The Nuggets' five home games included the Knicks, the Washington Wizards, the Chicago Bulls, the Dallas Mavericks, and the New Orleans Hornets. Their two road games come against the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Clippers.
