DENVER -- The Denver Nuggets say reserve guard Rudy Fernandez will undergo surgery on his lower back that will sideline him for the rest of the regular season.

The team did not announce a date for the procedure.

Fernandez has been bothered by a strained lower back that caused him to miss a dozen games earlier this season. He recently returned to the lineup, only to have the ailment surface again in a contest against Dallas last Monday. It led to more tests and further evaluation.

The 26-year-old Fernandez averaged 8.6 points and 2.4 assists for the Nuggets. He was acquired, along with Corey Brewer, in a trade with the Dallas Mavericks on Dec. 13.

Jesus, good thing they came up on Wilson Chandler. He went from luxury to necessity REAL quick.

Surprised Rudy Fernandez is only 26. I'm actually older than him, that seems off. He looks 30.

But yeah, this is tough for Denver, I always root for that team due to having no real superstar and relying on team ball.

It would truly be a shame if both he and Rubio were not a part of these Olympics. That was a potentially great matchup brewing between US/Spain (especially with Ibaka on Spain alongside that talent). Rudy's the man, and Rube's is something else.
