Paul Millsap Is Out Indefinitely After Opting To Get Wrist Surgery

Paul Millsap Is Out Indefinitely After Opting To Get Wrist Surgery

Denver Nuggets forward/center Paul Millsap has been diagnosed with an injury to a ligament in his left wrist and he's now evaluating all of his treatment options.

Millsap is averaging 15.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 16 games this season, his first with the Nuggets.

Millsap injured his wrist against the Lakers on Sunday and it was first thought to be only a sprain. X-rays came back negative, but Millsap missed Monday's contest before deciding to go under the knife. A three-month recovery time would put Millsap's return date around the All-Star break in mid-February. If Chandler is unable to play, it could be Juancho Hernangomez to potentially fill in at the small forward spot. Standing at 10-7, the Nuggets have started well enough to be considered playoff contenders.

The Nuggets are taking on the Sacramento Kings on Monday night - in Sacramento - and will still be without Millsap, but the injury report does not stop there.

Jim McCormick: An injury of this magnitude influences an entire rotation, as we've seen Murray, Harris, Jokic and Barton surge in usage rate when Millsap is off the floor. It's unknown how long Chandler (lower back pain) will remain sidelined, potentially making today's contest at the Western Conference-leading Houston Rockets even tougher. "Make the most of it'".
