When the Denver Nuggets take the floor on Wednesday night against the Sacramento Kings, they will be without two of their newest additions to the roster.

JaMychal Green (left calf strain) and Greg Whittington (left knee sprain) will miss the Nuggets opener as both were ruled out on Tuesday afternoon according to the Nuggets game notes.

Green appeared in two of the Nuggets preseason games and came off the bench in both of them. Whittington has yet to appear in a game for the Nuggets and is one of Denver’s two-way contract players along with Markus Howard.
