The Denver Nuggets must decide by Wednesday what to do with former Jazz player Eddie Hughes, whose 10-day contract with the team comes due that day. Hughes now appears a necessary roster addition. If Denver waives him, the Nuggets are left with only three true guards: Fat Lever, Michael Adams and Elston Turner.

But to retain Hughes' services, the Nuggets must choose among Jay Vincent, Bill Hanzlik and Calvin Natt. One must be left off the active roster.
