DENVER, Jan. 30, 2013 - The Denver Nuggets have assigned second-year guard Julyan Stone to the Iowa Energy of the NBA Development League, Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Masai Ujiri announced today.
Stone has averaged 1.0 ppg and 1.0 rpg in 5.5 mpg in two games with the Nuggets this season after missing the first 34 games this season while recovering from off-season surgery for a right hip injury.
When everyone is healthy, depth can be a curse.
Finding enough minutes to keep everyone happy is an impossible task.
The Denver Nuggets knew that when they built their roster with a dozen rotation-ready players. They also knew that depth would be a valuable commodity when injuries inevitably cropped up during the season.
