Now that he has approached the hiatus with that same kind of mentality, studying ways to further understand his body and maximize what he can do, Millsap figures to be a major X-factor in Denver’s playoff run should one occur. With access to his own gym, leaning on a workout plan he created and used to spark the season’s early splash — he averaged 13.9 points through Denver’s first 18 games on 49.1/50/88.2 percent shooting splits — it will be fascinating to see whether Millsap can spring into the postseason with a similar energy level. The advanced data is clear: The Nuggets have been at their best over the past three seasons, on both ends of the floor, when Millsap is on the court and healthy. He could very well set the tone for how Denver approaches an unprecedented postseason tournament.
Porter didn’t play in Thursday’s dramatic 114-112 win over the Hornets on Thursday. It was his first healthy scratch since the Nuggets were in Brooklyn on Dec. 8th. “I think (it’s) for the betterment, for himself, I think it’s good for him because he knows we need him, and if he’s not locked in, the team struggles,” Millsap said. “We need him locked in. I think he’s understanding it, and he’s taking it a little bit better than he would, per se, at the beginning of the year, but still a work in progress, and he’s still learning.”
Paul Millsap looked like he’d seen a ghost. It was only moments earlier that reports spread around the Nuggets locker room that NBA legend Kobe Bryant died Sunday in a helicopter crash. The Associated Press reported just before Sunday’s 1:30 p.m. tip that Bryant and four others died in the wreck. “Are you (expletive) me?” Millsap said. He could’ve been speaking for any of the handful of players in the Nuggets’ locker room.

NBA All-Star and Denver Nuggets player Paul Millsap has teamed up with PGA REACH, the nonprofit arm of the PGA of America, to help bring diversity to the game of golf. It was announced Wednesday that Millsap is the first-appointed ambassador for PGA WORKS, a PGA REACH initiative designed to create a pipeline for diverse talent to gain access to career opportunities in the golf industry.
Millsap will also launch a golf academy under the umbrella of CORE4, a prep academy school and state-of-the-art basketball training facility that he co-founded with his three brothers in Atlanta. Through the CORE4 golf academy, students will be exposed to careers in the golf workforce and pathways to PGA membership. According to the power forward, the mission of PGA WORKS “aligns perfectly” with the CORE4 mantra: “the power of 4: character, community, commitment and competition.”
The uptick in playing time has tested Porter’s commitment to recovery, an element of his approach that was always going to be vital once he began playing again after nearly two full years away from the court. “It’s something my parents have always really stressed,” Porter said. “I grew up vegetarian because my mom was always really health aware, but seeing how these guys recover — especially the older guys like Paul Millsap, and Isaiah Thomas when he was here — whether they play good or bad, their routine stays the same. I try to take a lot of that from them and just try to take care of my body in order to be ready to go every game.”

Nuggets standing pat?

And what seems even more clear as Jokic wades deep into his third season of playing alongside Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Will Barton and Paul Millsap is that any move shaking up Denver’s starters appears increasingly unlikely — and unwarranted. In conversations with numerous people around the team, there has been a strong sense of optimism about where Denver sits. No one thinks this team has hit its stride just yet. But Jokic has returned to MVP candidate form, players like Harris are finding their footing, and shots have largely begun to fall.
