Coach Mike Malone said Paul Millsap (wrist) could be back in early-mid March.
It did sound like maybe he could have his power forward back later this month, but that's apparently not the case. Millsap is progressing right now and he's been using both of his hands in on-court work, including even more work on Wednesday. He obviously needs to he added in all leagues while Mason Plumlee (calf), Trey Lyles and Wilson Chandler will take hits. Feb 7 - 2:34 PM

Paul Millsap (wrist) has progressed to significant on-court work and is ramping up his conditioning.

Coach Mike Malone hinted that Millsap's return will be after the All-Star break. "There are good days and bad days," Malone added. Millsap has been able to do some work with his left hand, and is working on getting his range of motion back. He needs to be owned in all leagues and his return would take minutes from Mason Plumlee, and possibly Wilson Chandler and Trey Lyles.

Paul Millsap (left wrist surgery) had his cast removed on Tuesday.

To be clear, Millsap still isn't expected back until after the All-Star break, but this is a small step in the right direction. We'll continue to track Millsap's progress every step of the way, but if you're in a league without an IR-spot, it's probably still a bit too early to stash him.

Paul Millsap (left wrist surgery) isn't expected to play before the All-Star break, according to Nuggets coach Mike Malone.

Malone added that the Nuggets "definitely won't rush [Millsap] back," which makes sense since Millsap said he's still working to regain normal range of motion in his fingers. If he returned for Denver's first game after the All-Star break, which is far from certain, Millsap would get 24 games to finish out the regular season.

Paul Millsap said he'll likely have to wear a cast on his wrist for about another month.

"Once the cast comes off I’m just rehabbing trying to get the range of motion back, get it strengthened back up," he said. "I’m hoping it will take a few weeks, or it might take a month – however long the training staff tells me it will take is how long I’ve got to wait." Millsap added that he has "no idea" when he will return, but vowed to be back as soon as possible. Several reports indicated that he will miss "several months," so he will be tough to stash if you don't have any I.R. spots.

Paul Millsap had surgery on Sunday to reconstruct ligaments in his left wrist, and he's expected to miss "the next several months."

The Nuggets' official press release specified that Millsap doesn't have a specific timetable, and that his return is "dependent upon consistent assessment throughout the rehab process." Trey Lyles and Kenneth Faried will both gain in his absence, with Juan Hernangomez also in the mix, but there's no clear-cut winner here. Early indications were that Millsap could miss 2-3 months, so whether fantasy owners hold him depends largely on league depth and IR spots.

Coach Mike Malone said the team will "talk to different doctors" to determine the best plan on Paul Millsap (wrist).

We still don't know what the team is going to do and this is pretty much a non-update. Millsap was expected to be out 2-3 months for surgery, but the Nuggets may try to rehab him without a procedure. Regardless, Millsap is out for an extended period of time, so his owners will likely have to wait until 2018 until he's back out there. The Nuggets will play the matchups without him, so Kenneth Faried, Juancho Hernangomez, Trey Lyles and Mason Plumlee will have ups and downs.

Nuggets coach Mike Malone said that Paul Millsap (wrist) is going to "get some other opinions before we make a decision as to what the best course of action is."

Shams Charania of The Vertical and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN both reported that Millsap will undergo surgery, and the Denver Post is reporting the same as well. Surgery would sideline the All-Star forward for 2-3 months, but until we know for sure, his fantasy owners should sit tight. The Nuggets went with a small-ball lineup with Wilson Chandler at the four on Wednesday while Kenneth Faried was a DNP-CD, but their lineups could change depending on the matchups.

Paul Millsap has been diagnosed with a left wrist ligament injury and he's currently mulling over his options to determine the best course of treatment.

Both Shams Charania and Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Tuesday that Millsap was set to undergo surgery and expected to miss 2-3 months, but it looks like surgical intervention hasn't officially been decided upon just yet. We'd advise on holding onto him until we have an official timetable and treatment option, but in the meantime, Kenneth Faried should be starting at the four with additional minutes falling to Juan Hernangomez and Trey Lyles. Will Barton, Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic should all see an uptick in usage as well.

Paul Millsap will reportedly undergo left wrist surgery and he will be out indefinitely.

Not good. While X-rays came back negative, tests taken over the past few days confirmed the need for surgery and Shams Charania reports he could be looking at a 2-3 month absence. Kenneth Faried got the start in his place on Monday night but finished with just six points and seven boards in 19 minutes, so he's still not a very attractive add. The Nuggets could also go small sans Millsap, shifting Wilson Chandler over to the four and starting Will Barton at the three, in which case Barton would see a nice uptick in value. Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and Barton figure to pick up most of Millsap's usage, and Juan Hernangomez could become a larger part of the rotation. Millsap will be tough to hang onto if you don't have an IR-spot.

X-rays taken on Paul Millsap's left wrist came back negative, but he will not play Monday vs. Sacramento.

It's nice to know that Millsap didn't break anything, but depending on the severity of the sprain, he could be looking at more than just a one-game absence here. Kenneth Faried or Will Barton could move into the starting five tonight with Millsap out, and there will be more opportunity on offense for guys like Gary Harris, Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray.

Paul Millsap (left wrist) has been ruled out for Monday's game in Sacramento.

Millsap sprained his wrist on Sunday night, and while X-rays came back negative, it won't be all that surprising if he's forced to spend at least a few games on the sidelines. Nuggets reporter Harrison Wind speculates that Kenneth Faried could be Millsap's replacement tonight, and if that's the case, he could be someone to consider as a punt play in DFS. We can also expect guys like Gary Harris, Nikola Jokic, Will Barton and Jamal Murray to all see an uptick in usage sans Millsap.

Paul Millsap (left wrist) had X-rays taken after leaving Sunday's game in the first half, but the results aren't yet known.

Millsap didn't play after halftime on Sunday, but Denver was trailing by more than 20 points so hopefully this isn't a long-term issue. The X-rays results should be disclosed soon. If Millsap does miss time, Trey Lyles should gain the most, with guys like Juan Hernangomez, Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee also picking up the slack.

Paul Millsap exited Sunday's game with a left wrist sprain, finishing with five points, four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 13 minutes.

Millsap headed into the locker room and emerged with his wrist taped in the first half, but Will Barton replaced him in the starting lineup after halftime. This could be a simple precaution, especially since Nikola Jokic was ejected early and Denver trailed by 22 points at halftime, but we'll consider Millsap questionable for Monday's road game in Sacramento.

Paul Millsap scored 20 points with six rebounds, seven assists, two blocks, two steals and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

October was not fun, but Millsap is having himself quite a month in November. In his last eight games, he averaged 17.6 points, 5.0 boards, 4.1 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.8 blocks and 1.6 treys. His Atlanta offense and this Denver offense are night and day, but now he seems to have it figured out. If you bought low on Halloween, you're in for a treat.
