On Monday, the team also waived guard Brandon Goodwin.

Young, 33, is entering his 12th season in the National Basketball Association.

The Denver Nuggets signed veteran guard Nick Young on Monday after being granted an exemption following an escalating injury crisis.

Last season, as a member of Golden State, he appeared in 80 games (eight starts) and averaged 7.3 points per game. The 11-year National Basketball Association veteran has averaged 11.4 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists while shooting 37.6% from three-point range in 716 career games (201 starts) with Golden State, L.A. Lakers, Philadelphia, L.A. Clippers and Washington Wizards. Young was the 16th overall pick by the Wizards in 2007.

Four balls later, a loud appeal for caught at short leg was turned down with Cummins reviewing it successfully this time. Cheteshwar Pujara was the pick of India's batsmen, scoring a century in the first innings and a fifty in the second.

Goodwin, 6-2, 180, was signed by Denver on November 29 with the injury hardship relief exception.

Still, the 33-year-old Young is a proven shooter who can help the Nuggets stem the tide of all these injuries.

The Nuggets are now sitting in third place in the Western Conference with a 17-9 record. Next up for Denver is a four-game homestand that kicks off tonight vs the Memphis Grizzlies, followed by games against OKC, Toronto and Dallas.
