DENVER -- The two-game suspension of Nuggets guard Andre Miller has been rescinded by the team, though he will remain away from the club until Monday under a newly issued personal leave. Miller originally was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team by the Nuggets for verbally confronting coach Brian Shaw in the waning minutes of their 114-102 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night in full view of teammates and fans. It was the eighth consecutive loss for the Nuggets. Miller reportedly was upset over what became the first "did not play-coachs decision" of his 15-year career. In a brief statement released Friday, Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly said that Miller would rejoin the team on Monday. He also said that until then, Miller would be excused from all team activities for personal reasons. Prior to Friday nights game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Shaw said that the club decided it was best to lift the suspension but maintain a sort of cooling off period. "Its a personal matter and what we wanted to happen was him basically be away from the team for a few days," Shaw said. "The crux of it is the incident that took place, everybody understands that cant happen, and because of that, hell get time to attend to some personal matters." Shaw said he has not had any contact with Miller since the episode, but indicated too much had been made about the issue. "Really, I thought the whole thing was blown out of proportion," Shaw said. "In the heat of the moment, sometimes players say things to coaches, sometimes coaches say things to players. What we try to get to happen is have it happen in the locker room, behind closed doors, within the group. "It started out on the court and thats what brought attention to it. As far as Im concerned, its not a big deal. It really doesnt. Ive had the utmost respect for Andre since he was at the University of Utah. Just an unfortunate incident, were moving on from it."

At 25-25, Washington is on track for its first playoff berth in six years. After an uninspiring 93-84 win over the Sacramento Kings, however, Wittman made it clear he expects more. "I dont want them to be satisfied," Wittman said. "Were back to .500. Were better than .500. I want them to believe that. They believe that." Over its last 14 games, Washington has been within a game of .500. Its flirtation with a winning record has been a source of ridicule. Quality wins over Miami, Oklahoma City and at Golden State were countered by home losses to Detroit, Boston, and Cleveland. As Washington frittered away most of a 17-point lead against Sacramento, Sundays game bore some of the earmarks of those unfocused defeats. "I wont accept the way we played," Martell Webster said. "We should have won by 30 points." There were some positives for Washington. Bradley Beal scored 16 points, hitting two 3-pointers in the final 6 minutes. Marcin Gortat added 17 points and eight rebounds. Nene scored 18 points and led a strong defensive effort, limiting DeMarcus Cousins to 14 points on 3-of-16 shooting. On a key sequence in the fourth quarter, Nene made a jumper, then followed with a block of Cousins. Nene took little credit for shutting down the NBAs ninth-leading scorer. "You know his average," Nene said. "We did our job." The Kings outrebounded the Wizards 49-38, but made only 35.4 per cent of their field goal tries, went 2 of 11 from 3-point range, and committed 18 turnovers leading to 26 Washington points. "That was not an offensive performance we were hoping for," Sacramento coach Michael Malone said. "Very hard to win on the road when you turn the ball over that many times. We talked about it going in that this is a team that does a great job turning their opponents over and scoring." Sacraamentos Isaiah Thomas scored 30 points and had eight assists, but he had little help.dddddddddddd Rudy Gay, one of three Kings who averages more than 20 points per game, had five points, hitting two of 11 shots. Rookie Ben McLemore scored nine of his 11 points in the second half, helping the Kings reduce the 17-point deficit to four. But Beal answered with 3-pointers from the same spot in the left corner to steady the Wizards. "We wish we could have had at least 10 more wins, but at the end of the day, we really cant complain where we are at," Beal said. "Were in a solid position playoff-wise, but we still have a lot of moves to make." Washington took command in the first half with a lift from its reserves. After Webster hit a 3-pointer, Kevin Seraphin made hook shots to close and open the quarters and added a jumper. When Garrett Temple retrieved a loose ball and scored a transition three-point-play, the Wizards had a 39-26 lead. Washingtons lead swelled to 17 points in the third quarter, but Sacramento went on a 14-2 run that bridged the quarters, the surge touched off by Quincy Acy, who scored on a put-back slam. It wasnt the resounding win the Wizards were looking for. Afterward they faced another round of questions about a sore subject - their .500 mark. "I dont want to answer that. I dont care about .500," Nene said. "We need everything we can. Thats the mentality. If youre going to think small like that, its fine, just stop right there. If you want to go for the gold, the championship, make the team better, you need to think forward." NOTES: Kentucky coach John Calipari attended the game, visiting with former Wildcats Cousins and John Wall. ... With a 22.9 scoring average entering Sunday, Cousins ranks ninth in the NBA and is the only player in the top 15 who was not selected to play in the All-Star game. ... Rudy Gay (illness) and Marcus Thornton (hip) returned to the starting lineup after missing Fridays loss at Boston.
