Millsap posted two points (1-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 12 minutes during Thursday's 126-115 win over Portland. Millsap scored in single figures for the fifth time in six games in the series as he continued to hold onto a minor bench role. The veteran forward struggled mightily from downtown in the series, going 2-for-13 from that range in six games. Millsap will likely continue to take on a minimal role in the second round against either the Suns or Lakers.
Millsap will not play Friday against the Pistons due to rest, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. Millsap, Aaron Gordon and Facundo Campazzo will all get the night off for rest. It's the Nuggets' second-to-last regular-season contest. JaMychal Green and Zeke Nnaji should see extra run as a result.
Millsap will come off the bench Saturday against the Nets, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports. The 36-year-old started the past two games but will move to the bench in favor of JaMychal Green on Saturday. Mills scored 19 points Friday and should see plenty of action versus Brooklyn with Aaron Gordon (calf) sitting out.
Millsap will start Wednesday's game against the Knicks, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports. The 36-year-old will make his first start since March 26 with PJ Dozier (groin) the latest Nugget to be sidelined by an injury. Millsap has averaged 9.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists over 23.8 minutes in 34 starts this season.
Millsap scored 11 points (4-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and a block in 17 minutes off the bench during Friday's win over the Rockets. The veteran big has seen his role decrease significantly since the Nuggets picked up Aaron Gordon, but in a blowout win in Houston, Millsap was able to make an impact in limited minutes. It's his first double-double since Jan. 19 though, and he may not get a chance for another one this season.
