While playing defense, Kaman backed into Mozgov in an effort to box him out as a Denver player attempted a shot from the perimeter. But as Kaman pushed Mozgov, the 7-foot-1 center toppled on Kaman's back and chomped down on his head with his teeth. "I went back pretty hard and I must've hit him in the chest," Kaman said, retelling the story. "He kind of folded over and his teeth went down on my head." Oregonian

Kaman instantly cupped his head, felt a gash and blood. He was pulled from the game and taken to the locker room, where he was given three stitches. After the game, he was wearing a big bandage on his balding head, but said he felt "pretty good." "It happened so fast, I was like, 'What the heck?" Kaman said. "I felt his teeth kind of crush me in and I was like, 'Crap, I know I'm going to need some stitches." Oregonian

Meanwhile, the Nuggets will get JaVale McGee back, either Wednesday against Portland or at Golden State on Friday. The center has progressed to the point of taking part in full practices the last couple of times out, and he's ready to get back on the court. He said the pain in his left tibia is down to a minimum, and he wants to get a game or two under his belt before the regular season begins. McGee, who has had the added motivation of watching young center Jusuf Nurkic play well in his absence, will participate with a minute restriction, but he'll play. "I'm excited, really excited," McGee said. "It's been a long time since I played in a real game." Denver Post

Chris Dempsey: The Nuggets would love to bring Chauncey Billups into their front office, but it's not going to happen this season. Billups has long said he's not necessarily into coaching, so don't look for that to happen. Right now he's taking time off to be with his family, and I've been told to expect to see him in some sort of TV basketball analyst capacity for this coming season. Then, the Nuggets will likely revisit that situation in the coming months. Denver Post

During the past calendar year, Mozgov arguably has been the Nuggets' most-coveted trade asset. Teams called last winter and throughout the summer. That's not likely to change, because with a $4.6 million salary, Mozgov is one of the best bangs for the buck in the NBA. Denver Post
