Hamilton Shifted Into Starting Line-up, Faried Out Tonight

The Denver Nuggets are ready to break out of their slump, and will make a starting line-up change. Sharp shooter Jordan Hamilton will be inserted into the starting line-up over Randy Foye. Hamilton is averaging 8 points per game, and he should be able to make an immediate impact for the Nuggs. They team is desperate for 3 pointers, and having him on the floor more will only help in that category. Randy Foye is also averaging 8 points per game, but he has been ice cold. This move does not come as a surprise, but it will be interesting to see how Foye handles his role coming off of the bench.

In other news, Kenneth Faried has been ruled out for tonights game. This is a blow for the Nuggets since they really need him out there on the floor. His ankle is the issue, and he is considered to be day-to-day with the injury. The hope is that with sitting out tonight, he will be ready to go tomorrow night against the Memphis Grizzlies.
