Saying Goodbye to Five
(Boulder-CO) In no major surprise, today the Denver Nuggets trimmed back their preseason roster by waiving five players. Mateen Cleaves, Smush Parker, Nick Fazekas, James Mays and Ruben Patterson were let go leaving the Nuggets with 14 players on their roster. Remember, under the rules of the collective bargaining agreement a team can only have twelve active players on its roster while also having up to three, but no fewer than one player(s) on it's inactive list which includes NBDL players.
My guess for who will be on the inactive list on opening night are Sonny Weems, due to injury, and Juwan Howard. Once Weems is healthy again, it will be a fight between he and Dahntay Jones for the twelfth active roster spot.
