  • Millsap is slated to undergo surgery on his left wrist and will be sidelined indefinitely, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Despite an X-ray coming back negative on Monday, Millsap went ahead and scheduled a follow-up meeting with Nuggets doctors Tuesday, where it was decided it's in his best interest to undergo surgery on the wrist. The surgery is reportedly to repair a torn ligament and while the Nuggets are saying he's out indefinitely, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports that it could cost him up to three months of action. A more concrete target date will likely be released following the surgery. Guys like Kenneth Faried, Juan Hernangomez and Trey Lyles should help cover his minutes, with Faried the likely starter moving forward. That said, Wilson Chandler has played some power forward in the past, so the Nuggets could experiment with him at the position as well, which could mean more Will Barton at small forward.

  • Millsap (wrist) will meet with Nuggets doctors in Denver on Tuesday to "look at" his sprained left wrist, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. The X-rays on Millsap's wrist returned negative, though he and the team seemingly feel it's a good idea to get a better look at things to help determine a recovery strategy and timetable for return. As of right now, it seems highly unlikely he'll suit up for Wednesday's game in Houston, especially considering he flew back to Denver. In Millsap's absence Monday, Kenneth Faried drew the start and played 19 minutes. Off the bench, Juan Hernangomez saw 23 minutes, Trey Lyles saw 19 and Mason Plumlee received 20.

  • An X-ray on Millsap's left wrist came back negative, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports. Millsap has already been ruled out for Monday's game against the Kings, but this recent update regarding a clean X-ray is fantastic news considering some in the organization were worried about a potential fracture. It appears Millsap has avoided anything serious, though the sprain could still cost him multiple games. Following Monday's contest, Millsap's next opportunity to return will be Wednesday against the Rockets, though his availability for that contest is not yet known.

  • Nuggets' Paul Millsap: Out Monday vs. Kings
    By RotoWire Staff

    Millsap (wrist) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Kings. Millsap sprained his left wrist during Sunday's game against the Lakers, eventually being pulled from the contest after just 13 minutes. With the Nuggets heading into the second night of a back-to-back, that didn't give Millsap enough time to make a recovery and he'll now be held out to avoid putting any additional strain on his wrist. With Millsap out, Kenneth Faried and Juancho Hernangomez should see a bump in playing time in the frontcourt. Wilson Chandler could also get more run at power forward as well, though he's currently questionable for Monday's contest with lower back pain.

  • Nuggets' Paul Millsap: Will not return Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Millsap (wrist) will not return to Sunday's game against the Lakers. Millsap was originally ruled questionable to return, but with the Nuggets down big at halftime, the team is likely exercising caution with its star power forward. Will Barton started the second half in Millsap's absence, but both Juan Hernangomez and Kenneth Faried could see extra time at power forward as well. Consider Millsap questionable to play in Monday's game against the Kings.
