KUSA - It was not pretty when the Nuggets and Andre Miller went their separate ways. And it's not getting any better.

The estranged point guard was suspended two games after getting into a verbal disagreement with head coach Brian Shaw during a game on December 30 against the Miami Heat. He has not returned to the team - including practice - and Denver has been unable to negotiate a trade.

The Nuggets are reportedly not interested in any reconciliation between themselves and Miller. Shaw doesn't want to discuss that topic any further.

"I'm getting really tired of answering questions about Andre [Miller]," the head coach asserted sternly. "I've said it from the beginning that at this point it's between the front office and Andre and his representatives. I'm coaching the guys that are here, out here on the floor. I've addressed the situation over and over again."

Denver is in desperate need of a ball-handler as Ty Lawson (fractured rib) and Nate Robinson (torn ACL) are out. Due to these injuries they entered the All-Star break on one of the worst three-game slides in franchise history - losing by a combined 110 points during that stretch.

"I cannot be really concerned about who's not here and if that's the case then I would love to have Nate and Ty here," Shaw said of the disagreement between Miller and the team. "At this point, that's out of my control. I'm not worrying about that at all."
