According to this report from the Nuggets, Fernandez probably will not play in the team's game on Tuesday night.

"It’s feeling better, but every day when I start to run, when I start to jump, it’s bothering me," Fernandez said Monday. "We’ll see with the treatment what happens."

Fernandez, who is averaging 8.5 points and 3.5 assists per game, would not speculate on a potential return date. He also said that Denver's hectic schedule probably contributed to the injury -- Denver opened the season with nine games in 13 days.
