DENVER (AP) - Denver Nuggets guard Dahntay Jones suffered a separated right shoulder in pregame warm-ups on Tuesday and was out of the lineup for the game against the Sacramento Kings.
The Nuggets said Jones injured the shoulder in a collision in a pregame workout but the x-rays were negative for a clavicle fracture. Renaldo Balkman will start in his place.
Jones, in his first year with the Nuggets, is averaging 6.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and one assist a game.
