The Denver Nuggets have had to navigate the majority of the 2017-18 season without their big offseason addition, Paul Millsap. Good news appears to be on the horizon, though, as the former All-Star is closing in on a return.
Millsap has been out since mid November after suffering a torn ligament in his left wrist that required surgery. The last time he suited up -- on Nov. 19 -- the Nuggets were 9-7 and still finding their rhythm to the season. Before the All-Star break, Denver got more into a groove by winning six of its last seven games, including victories against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs.
As for Millsap, he went through a full practice yesterday and was glad to be back in the Nuggets' mix. He doesn't think he'll return this week, writes Nick Kosminder of the Denver Post, but he's hoping his time out of the lineup will end soon
Paul Millsap practices, but is unlikely to play this week
