The Return of JR

Allen Iverson has had a difficult time adjusting since he was traded last month to the Denver Nuggets . Playing without the team’s top two scorers hasn’t made his transition any easier.

Iverson will get some help with the return of J.R. Smith on Wednesday when the Nuggets face the San Antonio Spurs at the Pepsi Center.

Denver (17-15) is only 3-6 since acquiring Iverson in a blockbuster trade with Philadelphia on Dec. 20, but has been playing without Smith and league scoring leader Carmelo Anthony , both suspended for their actions in a brawl with the New York Knicks on Dec. 16.
