Paul Millsap will receive "additional evaluation" on left wrist, Nuggets say

Nuggets head coach Malone suspended for one game

Denver Nuggets' forward Paul Millsap will have surgery on his left wrist and be sidelined indefinitely, reports Shams Charania of The Vertical, citing league sources.

The 32-year-old power forward has played in 73 games or more in nine of his 11 National Basketball Association seasons.

Paxton Lynch named Broncos starter
Osweiler and Trevor Siemian have combined for 2,370 yards and 12 touchdowns to 14 interceptions en route to a 3-7 record. The Denver Broncos are apparently on to their third starting quarterback of the 2017 season.

The 32-year-old All-Star suffered the injury in the second quarter of the Nuggets' 127-109 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.

He was already getting plenty of run (30.9 minutes per game this season), but his usage now ranks him 43rd among small forwards, a rate that has plenty of room for growth. Which players will see their values rise the most in his absence? He's started the season getting a handful fewer shots a game then he did in Atlanta last season, and Millsap was slightly less efficient, but like the team as a whole he seemed to be finding a groove and looked better during the recent streak when Denver won 4-of-5. The Houston Rockets (13-4) are one of the hottest teams in the National Basketball Association.

There were big sighs of relief in Denver when Paul Millsaps' X-rays on his injured wrist came back negative.

The moves were necessary with starting forwards Millsap and Chandler out with injuries, and an example of how quickly fortunes can shift during the NBA's regular-season marathon.
