MRI negative for Nuggets guard

DENVER -- An MRI on Tuesday was negative on Jon Barry's right shoulder, and the Denver Nuggets guard is listed as day-to-day.

Barry has a strained right rotator cuff and is questionable for
Thursday's game in Portland.

Barry left Monday night's game against Memphis in the third
quarter and did not return.

He missed 21 games after tearing the labrum in his right
shoulder in December and was activated Jan. 30, but Nuggets trainer
Jim Gillen said the latest injury was not related to the torn
labrum.

The Nuggets medical staff feared Barry might have torn his
rotator cuff, which would have ended his season.
