Millsap underwent surgery on his left wrist Sunday and is expected to be out for three months, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the Nuggets were still mulling options for the injured All-Star, the expectation was always that Millsap would end up having surgery to repair the torn ligament in his left wrist. The timetables leaves Millsap sidelined likely until late March, and in his absence, Kenneth Faried, who started in Friday's win over the Grizzlies, likely becomes a fixture in the starting five, while both Juan Hernangomez and Trey Lyles see extended frontcourt minutes off the bench.

Millsap is still mulling his treatment options for the torn ligament in his wrist and hasn't settled on surgery quite yet, Chris Mannix of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was reported on Tuesday that Millsap was going to undergo surgery and could potentially miss up to three months, though it sounds like nothing is official there and he's now weighing his options. While there's certainly a chance he does eventually undergo surgery, it appears he'll at least consider some sort of alternate treatment, though it's unclear when a final decision will be made or how that changes his timetable for a return. Either way, Millsap will still be out for the foreseeable future, which means Kenneth Faried should start at power forward, while guys like Juancho Hernangomez, Trey Lyles and Will Barton should all also benefit.

Millsap is slated to undergo surgery on his left wrist and will be sidelined indefinitely, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite an X-ray coming back negative on Monday, Millsap went ahead and scheduled a follow-up meeting with Nuggets doctors Tuesday, where it was decided it's in his best interest to undergo surgery on the wrist. The extent of the surgery is unclear at this point in time and the Nuggets aren't offering any sort of timetable for a return, so Millsap is going to be considered out indefinitely for the time being. A more concrete target date will likely be released following the surgery, but it wouldn't be surprising if he missed at least a month or two of action. Guys like Kenneth Faried, Juan Hernangomez and Trey Lyles should help cover his minutes, with Faried the likely starter moving forward. That said, Wilson Chandler has played some power forward in the past, so the Nuggets could experiment with him at the position as well, which could mean more Will Barton at small forward.

Millsap (wrist) will meet with Nuggets doctors in Denver on Tuesday to "look at" his sprained left wrist, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

The X-rays on Millsap's wrist returned negative, though he and the team seemingly feel it's a good idea to get a better look at things to help determine a recovery strategy and timetable for return. As of right now, it seems highly unlikely he'll suit up for Wednesday's game in Houston, especially considering he flew back to Denver. In Millsap's absence Monday, Kenneth Faried drew the start and played 19 minutes. Off the bench, Juan Hernangomez saw 23 minutes, Trey Lyles saw 19 and Mason Plumlee received 20.

An X-ray on Millsap's left wrist came back negative, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Millsap has already been ruled out for Monday's game against the Kings, but this recent update regarding a clean X-ray is fantastic news considering some in the organization were worried about a potential fracture. It appears Millsap has avoided anything serious, though the sprain could still cost him multiple games. Following Monday's contest, Millsap's next opportunity to return will be Wednesday against the Rockets, though his availability for that contest is not yet known.

Millsap (wrist) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

Millsap sprained his left wrist during Sunday's game against the Lakers, eventually being pulled from the contest after just 13 minutes. With the Nuggets heading into the second night of a back-to-back, that didn't give Millsap enough time to make a recovery and he'll now be held out to avoid putting any additional strain on his wrist. With Millsap out, Kenneth Faried and Juancho Hernangomez should see a bump in playing time in the frontcourt. Wilson Chandler could also get more run at power forward as well, though he's currently questionable for Monday's contest with lower back pain.

Millsap (wrist) will not return to Sunday's game against the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

Millsap was originally ruled questionable to return, but with the Nuggets down big at halftime, the team is likely exercising caution with its star power forward. Will Barton started the second half in Millsap's absence, but both Juan Hernangomez and Kenneth Faried could see extra time at power forward as well. Consider Millsap questionable to play in Monday's game against the Kings.

Millsap left Sunday's game against the Lakers with a left wrist sprain and is questionable to return, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

This was the second time Millsap left Sunday's contest due to the wrist injury, and with the Nuggets down 22 at halftime and without star center Nikola Jokic (ejection), it wouldn't be surprising to see Denver keep Millsap out for the rest of the game. In his absence, look for both Juan Hernangomez and Kenneth Faried to potentially pick up additional minutes at power forward.

Millsap scored 20 points (8-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding seven assists, six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in only 27 minutes during Friday's 146-114 win over the Pelicans.

EDGE Analysis

What little resistance the New Orleans defense was putting up in the first half evaporated after Anthony Davis left the court with a concussion in the third quarter, allowing Denver to shoot better than 60 percent from the floor and 50 percent from beyond the arc on the night. It's the first time in six games that Millsap has scored 20 or more points, and his current 69.2 percent mark from the free-throw line would be his worst performance in that category in a decade, but the veteran forward's ability to chip in all over the scoresheet is keeping his fantasy value afloat.

Millsap scored 18 points (6-16 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding five rebounds, a steal and a block in 34 minutes duringMonday's 99-82 loss to the Train Blazers.

EDGE Analysis

The five three-pointers were a season high for Millsap and snapped a cold spell that saw him go 2-for-18 from beyond the arc over his previous five games. The veteran power forward's scoring and rebounding are down to begin his first campaign with the Nuggets, but he's also averaging at least one steal, one block and three per game for only the second time in his career, buoying his fantasy value.
