Millsap (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Miami, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports. Millsap left Thursday's game against the Pacers with a sprained left ankle and was unable to return, but after some down time, he has been upgraded to probable heading into Sunday. Tiago Splitter and Mike Scott saw increased playing time in Millsap's absence Thursday, but they will likely return to their usual roles should Millsap play against the Heat.
Millsap left Thursday's game against the Pacers with a left ankle sprain and will not return, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Millsap suffered the injury in the first half of Thursday's game and will finish the outing with four points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot over 13 minutes. The severity of the injury remains unclear at this point in time, but we should see his status updated following the game.
Millsap returned from a one-game personal absence to score 22 points (8-15 FG, 6-7 FT, 0-1 3Pt) while grabbing nine rebounds, dishing three assists making two steals and adding a block in just 28 minutes during Monday's win over the Nuggets. The All-Star filled up the stat sheet in typical fashion in his return to the lineup, although his fantasy output was capped by his limited allotment of minutes in the easy win. Millsap has been outstanding over his last six games, averaging 19.3 points, 10 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 2.2 steals and two blocks, despite seeing fewer than 30 minutes on three occasions. Millsap should be considered an elite fantasy play due to his ability to contribute across the board even on nights when he doesn't see extended playing time.
Millsap (personal) is back with the team and will play Monday against Denver, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The 30-year-old is enjoying a stellar month of January, averaging 18.8 points and 8.6 rebounds while shooting nearly 54 percent from the field.
