DENVER -- Facing his first predicament as a head coach, Brian Shaw suspended one of his players and sat down the rest of the Denver Nuggets for a lengthy chat Thursday. Paulo Nagamura Kansas City Jersey . He hopes his message got through and possibly serves as a turning point in the season. The Nuggets are trying to snap out of an eight-game slump, their longest in nearly a decade. "Didnt anticipate for (the meeting) to last as long as it did, but however long it needs to take to flush everything out and figure out whats going on with our team, we decided to take that time today," Shaw said. "Its been a long morning after a long night of watching the game over and just playing everything back in your mind and trying to find a solution for where we are." One of the biggest moves of the day was Denver suspending veteran point guard Andre Miller for two games for "conduct detrimental to the team." Miller was upset after not playing in a 114-102 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. It was the first "Did not play -- coachs decision" of Millers 15-year career. Asked how his meeting with Miller went, Shaw said he hasnt talked to him yet. Shaw didnt elaborate on why Miller was suspended but there were reports that Miller voiced his displeasure with Shaw over his lack of playing time. "It just came to a boiling point. We made a decision and were moving forward," Shaw said. Millers suspension begins Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies. He also will not travel for a game Sunday in Los Angeles against the Lakers. "We will have a conversation before he comes back with the team," Shaw said. "Thatll happen when it happens." In the meantime, Shaw met for several hours with the rest of his squad as the Nuggets try to get back on track. "Everybody got their feelings out. Everybody said what needed to be said," point guard Ty Lawson said. "Hopefully everybody can take that to heart and change so we can start getting wins. Its always healthy to get things out and get everything in the open. Hopefully, this will be a turning point for the rest of the season." Shaw is hoping for the same thing. "Ive been on championship teams that while you were winning you had these kinds of meetings to air everything out," Shaw explained. "It happens and its a part of what goes on in our business and a family. These things happen. "There was a lot of things people wanted to get off their chest." Miller was a favourite of former coach George Karl, who was ousted after winning a franchise-best 57 games last season only to be bounced from the first round of the playoffs for a fourth straight time. The transition from Karls up-tempo style to the system Shaw wants to run hasnt been all that smooth. This season could be filled with growing pains, which has been hard for the fans to digest. The Nuggets drew some boos after losing their fifth straight game at Pepsi Center on Wednesday. They were a franchise-best 38-3 at home last season. Shaw said the takeaway from the meeting was the importance of "hard work and effort." "If we bring that every night and we ended up losing every game, we can still live with ourselves because we know we gave it everything we had," Shaw said. "To this point, at different stages in the games, we havent been doing that, so thats why we are where we are." Chance Myers Kansas City Jersey .com) - Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James will sit out Thursdays game against the Oklahoma City Thunder with left knee soreness. Graham Zusi Kansas City Jersey . In a matter of days, he went from unwanted to wanted, from fired to hired, from discarded by the Philadelphia Eagles with reputation tarnished to rock star treatment and a new fat contract from the Washington Redskins.The Montreal Alouettes found a diamond in the rough this season. However, Jim Popp isnt sure how long hell be able to admire wide receiver Duron Carter. "Do I think we are going to lose him? Absolutely," general manager and head coach said on the latest Als This Week on TSN 690. Popp understands that having a young, talented wide receiver has its negatives; that every catch and every touchdown will not only motivate any player to do more but itll attract suitors from down South. "Hes a very intelligent young man and hes only 22 years old. Hes going to get bigger and stronger and more mature," Popp continued. At 65", 205 pounds, Carter is already big and strong, its the maturing that has been amplified in his first professional football season. Just like many American-born CFL player, let alone the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Cris Carter, he still thinks of the National Football League as an option. "The NFL has always been a dream of mine, but Im doing well right now and Im comfortable," Carter said after practice Wednesday, in preparation for the East Semi-Final. Both Carter and Popp know that the NFL isnt around the corner this winter because he still has a year left on his contract. Plus, Carter was quick to point out and ease the mind of Alouettes fans that he isnt ready to hold out for the opportunity to go South like Hamiltons former WR/KR Chris Williams. "Were takking it a day at a time, were not trying to do a (Chris) Williams from last year, none of that," said Carter. Jimmy Medranda Kansas City Jersey. Thatll make Popp happy, if he already wasnt with his 49 receptions, 909 yards and five touchdowns. Those are numbers that would make any GM/head coach smile over an 18-game season, let alone the 11 games Carter played this year. If you were to pro-rate his numbers to a full season, Carter would have had 80 receptions, 1487 yards and eight touchdowns. That yardage would be tops in the league, ahead of the Eskimos Fred Stamps, his receptions and touchdowns, good for fourth overall. This is also Carters first season of competitive football in three years, so hes very appreciative for the opportunity Popp and the Alouettes have given him. "Im just getting back into playing games and everything, Im really fortunate to be playing for Montreal." Hell be playing a big role for the Alouettes this Sunday against the Tiger-Cats in the East Semi-Final. Two of his three 100-yard receiving games have come against Hamiltons defence. He totaled 17 catches, 285 yards and two scores in the three games against Hamilton. Carter is ready to make waves this weekend and next season for the Alouettes, but Popp knows hes shining too bright to keep him around forever. "With his bloodline and everything he can do, were only going to have him in Montreal for so long," Popp lamented.
