Nuggets Could Lose All-Star Paul Millsap For 3 Months

After worries that Paul Millsap may have fractured his left wrist against the Los Angeles Lakers, there is now a brief shimmer of positive light.

The Nuggets made short work of the Sacramento Kings on Monday with Kenneth Faried at the power forward position, but were without Wilson Chandler, who has played comfortably at either forward spot during his stay in Denver. In 16 games so far in 2017-18, Millsap has averaged 15.3 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 44.6 percent shooting from the field in 29.7 minutes per game.

As aptly pointed out by The Ringer, Millsap has played a huge role in Denver's success this season.

In the off-season, Millsap signed a two-year, $61 million deal with the Nuggets that includes a club option for a third season in 2019-20. Standing at 10-7, the Nuggets have started well enough to be considered playoff contenders.

James Harden finished second in MVP voting last season and is playing like he wants to win it this year.

Faried, who has traditionally paired well with standout center Jokic, finished with six points and seven rebounds in 19 minutes in his first start of the season.

Haynes, of ESPN, has reported that Millsap's X-ray was negative. Chris Paul is back in Houston's starting lineup after being sidelined with a bruised knee.
