Coach Michael Malone said Monday he doesn't expect Millsap (knee) to return to action before the All-Star break, which begins Friday, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
The 36-year-old was already ruled out for Monday's matchup with Chicago, but he's also expected to be unavailable for Tuesday's and Thursday's contests at Milwaukee and Indiana. Assuming Millsap sits out those games, he'll head into the break having missed 10 consecutive contests, with his next chance to play coming March 12 versus the Grizzlies.
Millsap (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game at Chicago, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.
The 36-year-old will be sidelined for the eighth straight game as he continues to deal with a knee sprain. PJ Dozier and Michael Porter should see increased run at power forward with Millsap unavailable.
Millsap (knee) is out Saturday against the Thunder, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.
Due to a sprained left knee, the veteran hasn't seen the court since Valentine's Day. He'll remain out Saturday, making it seven straight absences.
Millsap (knee) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Wizards, Mike Singer of the Denver Post reports.
This will be the sixth consecutive absence for Millsap, and the Nuggets will also be without JaMychal Green (shoulder), Gary Harris (thigh) and PJ Dozier (hamstring). In Tuesday's win over the Blazers, Denver started Monte Morris at shooting guard, Will Barton at small forward and Michael Porter Jr. at power forward.
Millsap (knee) will remain out for Tuesday's game against Portland, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.
It will be the fifth straight absence for Millsap, who continues to nurse a sprained left knee. He's without a firm timetable, but the fact that the Nuggets have ruled him out well in advance of Tuesday's game is an indication that he's probably not close to a return. With JaMychal Green (shoulder) and Gary Harris (thigh) also out Tuesday, rookie Zeke Nnaji could be set for another start alongside Nikola Jokic.
Millsap (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Hawks.
A sprained left knee will keep the veteran sidelined for a fourth straight game. In his absence, with JaMychal Green (shoulder) also sidelined, Michael Porter and Zeke Nnaji should see expanded roles.
Millsap (knee) is out for Friday's game against the Cavaliers.
Millsap and the Nuggets are still awaiting test results on the big man's sprained left knee, so he won't play Friday. As long as he's sidelined, JaMychal Green and Michael Porter should be in line for more minutes.
Nuggets head coach Michael Malone said the team is still waiting for more clarity on the test results for Millsap's sprained left knee before determining a timeline for the big man's return, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.
Millsap suffered the knee injury in Sunday's win over the Lakers in Denver, but he still joined the Nuggets for the start of their five-game road trip this week. He ended up getting examined by doctors in Boston on Tuesday, the same day the Nuggets took a 112-99 loss to the Celtics. Millsap then proceeded to sit out Wednesday's two-point loss to the Warriors, and at this stage, he appears likely to miss a third game Friday in Cleveland. The Nuggets could elect to send Millsap back to Denver for further rest if his test results reveal that his knee injury is more than a day-to-day concern.
Millsap (knee) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Katy Winge of Altitude TV reports.
Millsap was held out of Tuesday's loss in Boston, and he'll remain out for the second half of a back-to-back set. He sprained his left knee against the Lakers on Sunday, and while the Nuggets haven't said much about the injury, it's possible Millsap could end up missing a string of games.
Millsap (knee) will not be available for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.
Millsap sprained his left knee during Sunday night's game against the Lakers, and he could be set for a multi-game absence as the Nuggets enter a back-to-back set to begin a four-game Week 9. In Millsap's absence, expect to see more of Michael Porter Jr. and JaMychal Green.
Millsap (knee) won't return to Sunday's game against the Lakers, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.
Millsap suffered a left knee sprain late in the first half Sunday, and he'll be unable to return to the game as a result. JaMychal Green started the second half in his place and could see increased run over the remainder of the game. Prior to his departure, Millsap recorded 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and one steal over 16 minutes.
Millsap went to the locker room in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Lakers with an apparent knee injury, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.
Millsap appeared to bang his knee late in the second quarter Sunday, and he went to the locker room just before halftime as a result. The severity of the injury isn't yet clear. Whether he's able to return in the second half Sunday remains to be seen.
Millsap paced the Nuggets with a season-high 22 points (7-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT) and chipped in four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block across 27 minutes Wednesday in a 133-95 win over the Cavaliers.
The Nuggets built a quick lead in the first quarter and never let up in the blowout win, resulting in Millsap and each of the team's other four starters playing less than 30 minutes. Despite getting an extended breather in the second half, Millsap still did plenty of damage through the first three quarters to come away with perhaps his best stat line of the season. Of course, the 87.5 percent shooting from the field isn't realistic for Millsap to maintain moving forward, and the 36-year-old no longer racks up defensive stats like he did during his peak years in Atlanta. This was a nice performance from Millsap, but his season-long averages of 10.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.1 three-pointers, 0.9 steals and 0.5 blocks still make him a fringe 12-team-league option.
Millsap contributed 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, three blocks, one assist and one steal in the Nuggets' 125-112 loss to the Bucks on Monday.
Millsap provided the Nuggets with strong play on both ends. It is the second straight game that the forward has scored 14 points, and he has scored in double figures in four of his last six games. Monday was also the first game in which Millsap recorded more than one blocked shot in a game. The veteran continues to be a good two-way player, providing consistent stats in multiple categories.
Millsap totaled 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt), three rebounds and one steal over 22 minutes in Sunday's 128-117 win over the Jazz.
Millsap struggled early in the week after posting his first double-double of the season against the Thunder on Jan. 19, but he's been relatively consistent over the past three contests. His performance was somewhat overshadowed by a dominant game by Nikola Jokic, but Millsap still made effective use of his playing time against Utah.
Millsap tallied 13 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 25 minutes Tuesday, as the Nuggets beat the Thunder 119-101.
Despite picking up his third foul shortly before the half, Millsap started the third quarter and hit the landmark shortly thereafter. It was his first game with double-digit rebounds this season. Millsap is averaging just 4.6 rebounds per game this season and only averaged 5.7 per game last season. However, the Nuggets are still acclimating to life without Jerami Grant and Mason Plumlee. With 21 rebounds over his past two games, a gradual uptick in rebounding production for Millsap isn't out of the question.
Millsap recorded nine points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two steals and a block in 22 minutes in the 115-103 win over Philadelphia on Saturday.
Millsap struggled in the win Saturday. The forward could not make any strides from the floor after having a rather good run of form as of late. Millsap has not had great shooting all season and the trend continued against Philadelphia. The forward will not be viable until he can prove that he can produce more consistently.
Millsap registered 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), three rebounds and an assist across 16 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Timberwolves.
Millsap has been remarkably consistent and productive despite not receiving many minutes. He's started all seven games for Denver thus far, and while he's reached the 25-minute mark just two times, he's scored 10 or more points in all but two contests. His days as an automatic double-double threat are gone, but Millsap remains a useful fantasy asset for deeper formats.
Millsap totaled 19 points (7-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and grabbed three rebounds in Monday's victory versus Houston.
Millsap made the most of his eight field-goal attempts, knocking down seven -- including three from beyond the arc -- en route to 19 points. He contributed little in the way of peripheral stats, but the scoring output was a nice bounce-back after an eight-point, one-rebound dud on Christmas Day against the Clippers.
Millsap recorded 24 points (9-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, two steals, an assist and a block during Friday's 129-96 preseason win over Portland.
Millsap dominated the first half to the point Denver led by 31 once it ended. He would not play in the second half, ending his preseason with averages of 16.7 points and 5.0 rebounds across 21.3 minutes. Millsap will hope to kickstart Denver's season strong in Wednesday's season opener versus Sacramento.
