The Nuggets will be without 26-year old shooting guard Rudy Fernandez for the rest of the year due to lower back surgery. Fernandez played in 31 games (1 start) for the Nuggets this year and he averaged 22.9 minutes, 8.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steal per game. This is a bad break for Fernandez, as he was playing the best basketball of his NBA career this year. The Nuggets should be o.k. without Fernandez as their roster is very deep.
