Millsap (calf) won't play in Monday's preseason game against the Suns.
Millsap was initially considered a game-time decision due to a right calf injury, and the team has now announced that he'll miss the contest. The severity of the issue is unknown at this time, but Jerami Grant and Michael Porter are expected to see an increase in minutes until the veteran returns to health.
Millsap is considered questionable for Monday's preseason game against the Suns, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.
This is the first we're hearing of the injury, but it doesn't look to be anything overly serious. Look for a clearer update after the team can evaluate him on Monday.
Millsap tallied 13 points (4-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and two steals across 20 minutes in the Nuggets' 111-91 preseason win over the Clippers on Thursday.
Millsap led the first unit in scoring and checked in second to only Malik Beasley in that category on the night. The veteran forward will reprise his frontcourt partnership with Nikola Jokic for a third straight season, as the Nuggets exercised a $30 million team option this summer despite Millsap putting up his lowest scoring average (12.6 points) since the 2009-10 campaign last season. However, that downturn was primarily due to a dip in offensive usage, as Millsap's 9.5 shot attempts per contest were also his lowest figure in that category this decade.
The Nuggets exercised Millsap's $30 million team option for 2019-20 on Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Given the hefty price tag, Millsap's status for the upcoming season was uncertain. Based on the decision, Denver now looks set to prioritize roster continuing heading into the 2019-20 season, which may hinder the team's efforts to pursue any marquee free agents this summer. The veteran power forward has averaged 13.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.9 blocks and 0.9 triples across 28.1 minutes per game through his first two seasons with the Nuggets..
Millsap managed 17 points (4-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-8 FT), six rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block across 39 minutes during the Nuggets' 119-108 loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 6 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series Thursday.
Millsap was far from efficient from the floor, but a perfect showing from the charity stripe served to prop up his final line significantly. The veteran big had been very sharp in the first five games of the series, shooting 56.3 percent or better in four of those contests. The Game 6 clunker aside, Millsap remains one of the most reliable fantasy assets on the Nuggets and will look to maximize his opportunities in Sunday's decisive Game 7 on his Pepsi Center home floor.
Millsap registered 24 points (9-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 34 minutes during the Nuggets' 124-98 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series Tuesday.
Millsap was a force down low once again, particularly in a first half when he put up 19 of his points. The veteran is now averaging 19.0 points and 9.6 rebounds during the series, and he's eclipsed the 20-point mark in back-to-back contests. Coupled with his strong efforts on the boards, the veteran shapes up as an appealing fantasy asset heading into Thursday's Game 6.
Millsap registered 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist, three steals and two blocks across 49 minutes during the Nuggets' 140-137 quadruple-overtime loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal-round series Friday.
Millsap put together another strong effort and gave the Nuggets a momentary 129-125 lead in the final overtime with a jumper. The veteran big man has back-to-back double-doubles and is shooting an impressive 54.2 percent over the first three games of the series overall. The 34-year-old will look to continue making an impact on both the scoreboard and the glass in a critical Game 4 on Sunday.
Millsap tallied 14 points (6-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 97-90 loss to Portland.
Millsap was able to put up a double-double during his 32 minutes Wednesday, although it was to no avail as the Nuggets gave up homecourt advantage in the Game 2 loss. Millsap has had two strong performances matching up with the smaller bodies of the Trail Blazers. Unfortunately, there was not a lot of support for the veteran and the Nuggets will now need to win at least one of the two games coming up in Portland if they hope to advance to the Conference Finals.
Millsap had 19 points (7-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-7 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and one block in 28 minutes during Monday's 121-113 victory over Portland.
Millsap did most of his damage early Monday but remained a factor throughout as the Nuggets held on for an eight-point victory in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals. He took advantage of a number of mismatches to begin the game and got the Nuggets off to a strong start. Millsap is certainly not the player he once was but his playoff experience could prove invaluable throughout the course of the series.
Millsap mustered 20 points (7-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-7 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 114-105 Game 2 win over the Spurs.
Millsap finished with twice as many points as field goal attempts, scoring efficiently while contributing in every statistical category. The 34-year-old forward has settled into a modest role offensively but can clearly still fill it up when the occasion calls for it.
Millsap (rest) will play in Tuesday's game against the Jazz, Katy Winge of Altitude TV reports.
Millsap was one of the three Nuggets to get the night off Sunday, and with his return to the starting lineup, Trey Lyles will head back to his role off the bench.
Millsap will not play due to rest purposes Sunday against Portland.
The veteran will get Sunday's game off as the playoffs draw closer. In his place, Juancho Hernangomez and Trey Lyles figure to see extra run.
Millsap contributed 25 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal across 30 minutes in the Nuggets' 119-110 win over the Trail Blazers on Friday.
Millsap paced the Nuggets in scoring on the night by breaking out of a three-game slump in sensational fashion. The veteran forward had shot 33.3 percent or worse in each of the previous three contests, but his resurgence Friday came at a critical time for a Nuggets squad still trying to catch the Warriors for the top seed in the Western Conference. Despite less involvement offensively this season -- his 9.6 shot attempts per contest are his lowest since the 2009-10 season -- Millsap has been impressively efficient while shooting 48.8 percent, his best success rate from the floor since the 2012-13 campaign.
Millsap totaled 13 points (3-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 16 rebounds, and three assists in 31 minutes during Sunday's 95-90 loss to the Wizards.
Millsap matched his season high with 16 rebounds Sunday, but unfortunately, that is where the good news ends. He shot just 3-of-13 from the field and failed to record a single defensive stat. He has been solid enough this season but is far from the player he was only two seasons ago. The Nuggets are likely to finish with the second seed in the West after this loss and may decide to rest a number of players leading into the playoffs. Millsap would certainly be a candidate there and owners should keep an eye on the injury report moving forward.
Millsap recorded 10 points (2-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block across 40 minutes during Tuesday's 95-92 win over the Pistons.
Though he struggled from the field, Millsap hit double-digit points Tuesday after failing to reach that threshold across the past two contests. He also recorded his 13th double-double in the process. Overall, it was a struggle for the entire Nuggets squad, as it was just the seventh time all year Denver has accumulated fewer than 100 points.
Millsap scored 12 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and five assists in 27 minutes during Monday's 114-105 win over the Celtics.
It's his 12th double-double of the season, half of which have come in the last 13 games. Millsap isn't an involved in the offense as he was in Atlanta, but the 34-year-old forward will still playing a key supporting role in the Nuggets' push for the top seed in the Western Conference.
Millsap ended with 15 points (5-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists, and one block in 34 minutes during Saturday's 102-100 victory over the Pacers.
Millsap's impressive stretch continues, turning in another strong performance Saturday. The victory keeps the Nuggets within one game of the Warriors and gives them a very real chance of ending the season with the best record in the West. Millsap is playing the most consistent he has played since joining the Nuggets. The production does seem somewhat unsustainable but as long as he is rolling, he should continue to be rostered in every format.
Millsap ended with 33 points (14-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 36 minutes during Thursday's 100-99 victory over the Mavericks.
Millsap turned back the clock Thursday, leading all scorers with 33 points on 14-of-19 shooting. It was his highest scoring night of the season and was certainly timely with many of his teammates struggling on the offensive end. Millsap is not the fantasy stud he once was but is still a very serviceable standard league option and should be rostered in all competitive formats.
Millsap tallied 23 points (8-12 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes Tuesday in the Nuggets' 133-107 win over the Timberwolves.
After averaging a double-double over his first seven games back from a right ankle injury, Millsap has alternated strong and lackluster performances over the past four contests. Tuesday's outing was one of the better ones, with Millsap's efficiency from the field and three-point range in particular a welcome sight for his fantasy managers. While his counting stats are mostly down across the board this season, Millsap is at least converting at a 49 percent clip from the field and 36.6 percent mark from three-point range, his best marks since 2012-13 and 2010-11, respectively.
