Denver Nuggets power forward Paul Millsap has been out since November 21 after undergoing surgery on his left wrist but could be on track to return next month.
Millsap suffered a torn ligament in his wrist against the Los Angeles Lakers and was expected to miss three-to-four months. Nuggets head coach Michael Malone, while speaking to reporters after practice Wednesday, says the team is hopeful Millsap will be back in early-to-mid March.
