DENVER (AP) -Denver Nuggets guard Chucky Atkins is expected to miss six to eight weeks after an MRI on Saturday revealed a severe right groin strain.
Atkins, who signed with the Nuggets in July, has been bothered during the preseason by a pulled groin. He left an exhibition game against Phoenix on Thursday with a groin injury.
The eight-year veteran averaged 13.2 points and 4.6 assists with Memphis last season.
The Nuggets said Saturday they have re-signed guard Mike Wilks, whom they waived on Tuesday.
Wilks signed with the Nuggets on Oct. 18. He had two points and one assist in six minutes of the one preseason game he played before he was waived.
He has played five NBA seasons with Atlanta, Minnesota, Houston, San Antonio, Cleveland and Seattle, where he averaged 3.6 points and 1.7 assists in 47 games last season.
