The Nuggets cited "conduct detrimental to the team" in suspending Miller for his confrontation with coach Brian Shaw during Wednesday night's loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. Miller ripped into Shaw in full view of the public and had to be restrained during the first half of the game.

Miller had a streak of 239 consecutive games played end Wednesday night with Shaw's decision to sit him. For Miller, 37, it was the first DNP-Coach's Decision of his 15-year career.

Miller will miss the Nuggets' games against the Memphis Grizzlies (Friday) and the Los Angeles Lakers (Sunday).

Several teams have inquired about trades for Miller this season, but Denver hasn't been inclined to move him, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Denver GM Tim Connelly had an hour-long meeting with Miller later on Wednesday night, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Management and Shaw still believe Miller can be a productive player for the Nuggets and will move past this episode.
