07:25 AM ET 01.31 | If time doesn't heal all wounds, necessity has a way of bridging the gap. The Nuggets' situation at point guard has thinned to the point of extinction if Ty Lawson is not able to play Friday night against the Toronto Raptors. The paucity of players at that position has the Nuggets considering all of their options ... perhaps including asking exiled playmaker Andre Miller to play. In addition to Lawson, backup point guard Nate Robinson was diagnosed with a sprained ACL in his left knee, suffered Wednesday night against Charlotte. "We will explore whatever we need to explore to help us out in this situation," Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said Thursday. "We have 15 players on the roster." Miller is one of those players, but he hasn't played since the incident Jan. 1 when he yelled at Shaw during a game.

Not looking for Coach Shaw. You shouldn't have done that. You need everybody to be on your side. He alienated Miller.

I'll be there tonight. I think it's time to mend fences and let him play. If for no other reason to remind possible trade partners he still is a valuable asset.

reminds me of when the Knicks players voted to not let marbury suit up. He actually said he would come of the bench and everything but they said nope we don't want you. When they made a trade and was short players, hey man, we got some minutes for you if you want. Of course he said nope. Paycheck is what it is weather i play or not.
