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.

Since the beginning of the 2014-15 season, when Steve Kerr took over in Oakland and the Warriors took over the NBA, 105 players have attempted at least 1,000 3-point shots. Of that group, Curry ranks first in overall makes and second in efficiency. It’s not fair, my dudes. He shoots more than anyone, and with the exception of the ridiculous Kyle Korver, he sinks them at a higher rate. No player in the history of the NBA has combined range, volume and efficiency from downtown as well as Curry, and over the course of the Warriors’ dynasty, he has changed the way the entire league looks at 3-point scoring. Curry’s jumper is so lethal that he has become the most efficient volume scorer on the planet — of the league’s top 20 scorers, nobody has a higher TS% than Curry. Not even Giannis Antetokounmpo, and all he does is dunk it.

The NBA is preparing to double down on policing its players, teams and staff amid the expansion of legalized sports gambling in the United States, deputy commissioner Mark Tatum told ESPN. Speaking in the United Kingdom on Wednesday, Tatum, who is also the NBA’s chief operating officer, revealed that moves have been made to get up to speed on the opportunities and threats surrounding the issue since May’s Supreme Court ruling that allowed states to sanction sportsbooks in a manner that has been commonplace in Europe for decades.

That will mean extra resources to prevent the kind of in-house infractions that have plagued a number of sports, such as soccer, tennis and cricket. Spanish police recently arrested 28 professional tennis players, including one who participated in the US Open, who were linked to a group accused of fixing matches. NBA’s gaming rules, overseen by the league’s security department, specifically prohibit betting, fixing or tipping, including the encouragement of others to place wagers, or exercising any “improper influence or manipulation.”
