When Denver Nuggets point guard Andre Miller had an on-court altercation with head coach Brian Shaw, the team deactivated him and began actively shopping him. But after almost a month of deactivation, the Nuggets are reportedly considering activating Miller and inserting him back into their lineup.

Shaw also notes that he hasn’t spoken to Miller since they had their incident back in the beginning of January. Miller being activated shouldn’t be read into as the two sides making amends, rather putting Miller back in the lineup would be purely to compensate for injuries.

The Nuggets have failed to trade Miller since the incident despite getting interest from the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings almost immediately.

Many believe that Miller will still be traded by the deadline, but for now it appears they’re willing to use him to help make up for injuries on the roster.
