Paul Millsap appears to be the latest member of the Denver Nuggets to go down with an injury. Not only did the Nuggets start the season without free agent signee Isaiah Thomas, 2018 first round draft pick Michael Porter Jr and second round pick Jarred Vanderbilt, they’ve also been without Will Barton and Gary Harris recently suffered a hip injury that’s been listed as day-to-day for the moment.

Millsap reportedly suffered a Broken Toe on Friday night in the Nuggets road game against the Charlotte Hornets. Millsap scored 16 points to go along with 3 rebounds and an assist in 19 minutes before he left the game shortly after this play.

Following comes from Shams Charania of The Athletic and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

We’ll be sure to update you with an official timetable when it becomes available.

The Nuggets still sit atop the Western Conference with a 17-8 record heading into the weekend despite all the depth issues they currently face but the loss of Millsap for an extended period of time might bring them back to earth. He’s had a solid season playing alongside Nikola Jokic posting per game averages of 13.5 points, seven rebounds, two assists, 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocks in 26.8 minutes. But another injury has people questioning if Denver’s investment in him was worth it.

The four-time All-Star originally signed a three-year, $90 million contract to join the Nuggets in the summer of 2017 after he elected to leave the Atlanta Hawks. The Nuggets have a team option on him after this year. He was supposed to bring toughness, defense, rebounding and just another punch to the young Nuggets but injuries have shortened his first two seasons. He missed 44 consecutive games last season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist.
