Miller leaves Nuggets game with shoulder injury


DENVER (AP) -- Denver Nuggets guard Andre Miller has left Monday's game against the Dallas Mavericks with a bruised right shoulder and will not return.

Miller was hurt when he was fouled by Brandan Wright with 10:51 left in the second quarter. Miller rotated his arm for several seconds before hitting 1 of 2 free throws. On Dallas' ensuing possession, he was clearly in pain and motioned to the bench to come out.

He went to the locker room and did not come back out.

Miller, who turned 36 on Monday, has missed just four games in his 13-year career -- and just three to injury. He is averaging 10.3 points and 6.6 assists for Denver this season.
