Iverson unlikely to play Nuggets' preseason finale

Nuggets guard Allen Iverson, recovering from a sprained right ankle, probably will not play in the team's final preseason game Friday night against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Iverson went through a full practice Thursday but said he wants to ensure he is healthy for next Tuesday's regular-season opener.

"That's the only thing I’m concerned about -- that initial game,"’ he said. "I've been in the league 13 years now, so a preseason is just a preseason game. I need to get my ankle ready, strong for the regular season. I felt great (Thursday) and I don't want to get back out there and have any type of setback.’’

Iverson, who sprained the ankle last Friday, has played in only two preseason games, averaging 4.5 points and 6.5 assists.

Coach George Karl said he planned to talk with Iverson on the flight to L.A. on Thursday night to guage whether his star guard would be willing to play against the Clippers. He might be wasting his breath.

"The one thing I'm going to do is be smart about the situation,"’Iverson said. "Last year I was able to play every game. That's something that I want to be able to do now. I just don't want to take no chances and not be able to try to fulfill that goal. "My whole focus is just to be ready for the season opener. I'm not really concerned about any preseason games. I just want to be ready for my teammates."rocky (http://www.rockymountainnews.com/news/2008/oct/23/iverson-unlikely-play-nuggets-preseason-finale/)

Denver up 62-42 at the half - looks like very balanced production from the whole team, and Juwon is playing great - good sign.

Nuggets 106-92 Clips

We finish the preseason 6-1 - nice job, Nuggets! :clap:

6 in double figures, J.R. with 19, LK with 17, Juwon Howard 11/6/3 on 4-8 shooting (3-3 from the line), Birdman's boards: 15! but shooting was crap, 1-8; but hey AI also only shot 1-8, trying to make up for it with 6 steals; Melo 11/6, K 10/4/1, Nene 12/4/2... solid all around.

But J.R. and LK had the lines of the game:


BENCH MIN FGM-A 3PM-A FTM-A OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF PTS
Linas Kleiza, SF 25 7-10 3-4 1-1 0 6 6 1 0 1 0 1 18
J.R. Smith, SG 30 5-11 4-7 5-6 0 3 3 4 1 0 2 1 19
