Paul Millsap Undergoes Surgery, Out Three Months

After some debate, Paul Millsap and the Nuggets decided that surgery would be the best option for the injured forward. Per Shams Charania of The Vertical, Millsap underwent successful surgery on his left wrist today and is expected to be sidelined for three months.

Last week we wrote about Millsap injuring his wrist in a game. It was determined by way of an MRI at the time that the forward hadn’t fractured it but sprained it. Eventually, word spread that it was a torn ligament.

While Millsap has taken time adjusting to his new role with the Nuggets, he’s put forth respectable numbers, including 15.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Just as the 32-year-old seemed to be acclimating himself, however, this setback has thrown a wrench in plans.

    Manimal for Okafor and whatever else to match (stauskas?) one man’s trash for another man’s trash. Sixers value a high energy rebounding forward off the bench to add depth behind Holmes and Johnson.

      The trade machine accepts it, but I think Denver would have an issue giving up anyone else on the roster other than maybe Darrell Arthur for the honor of waiving Stauskas. Most of the bench is made up of first-round prospects that are in Malone’s rotation to some degree.

      I’m sure they’d love to get out of the last year of Faried’s deal, especially with the Plumlee overpay, but not at the cost of sacrificing all defensive integrity until Millsap returns.
