Barton (groin) went through light shooting and ball handling drills at Monday's practice, TJ McBride of Mile High Sports reports. Barton still looked fairly limited in terms of exertion level, but he appears to be progressing well in his recovery from a groin injury. The versatile wing remains on track to be reevaluated at the beginning of December, at which point a clearer timetable should be available. In Barton's absence, the Nuggets have primarily filled the void with a combination of Juancho Hernangomez, Trey Lyles and Torrey Craig.
Barton (groin) will be re-evaluated in six weeks, Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report reports. Barton was originally expected to be sidelined for five-to-six weeks. The decision has been made to re-evaluate him after six weeks, which means his absence could extend seven or possibly eight weeks. On the far end of that timetable, we may not see Barton again until late December. Torrey Craig, Juancho Hernangomez and Trey Lyles should be in line for increased opportunities over that timeframe.
Barton (groin) is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday and is expected to miss 5-to-6 weeks, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports. Barton suffered the injury against the Suns over the weekend, and the issue was deemed serious enough to require surgery following an MRI and multiple opinions. While this is an unfortunate blow for Barton and the Nuggets, his absence apparently would have been longer if he hurt the labrum in his hip (as some speculated). Should his original recovery timetable hold true, Barton could be ready to return around the beginning of December. In the meantime, look for Torrey Craig, Juancho Hernangomez and Trey Lyles to see increased opportunities.
