Calling his presence back with the Nuggets “therapeutic,” forward Paul Millsap talked for the first since suffering a left wrist injury about it and what’s to come with Altitude Sports and Nuggets.com on Wednesday. He recently was fitted with a hard cast. “I gotta stick with the cast,” Millsap said. “It’s part of me now. But, it’s been a tough journey, a tough road, a tough few weeks being that this is the longest time that I’ve missed. But I’m here to support my team, and I’m glad I’m here.” The cast, Millsap said, will be on for a long while. He detailed the next steps when it does come time for it to be removed. “Once the cast comes off I’m just rehabbing trying to get the range of motion back, get it strengthened back up,” he said. “I’m hoping it will take a few weeks, or it might take a month – however long the training staff tells me it will take is how long I’ve got to wait.”

Paul Millsap recently had an MRI on his left knee and the results of the exam showed no damage, Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said Sunday. However, Millsap missed his fifth straight game due to left knee tightness. The Hawks, in the midst of a six-game losing streak, have lost every game in the absence of the starting power forward. The Hawks are 0-7 overall this season without Millsap. Budenholzer said Millsap has seen team doctors but did not indicate whether the all-star has seen a specialist concerning the injury.
