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.

When Wendell Carter Jr. joined other members of the 2018 draft class at this week’s mandatory Rookie Transition Program, he knew there would be seminars and maybe some studying. What the Bulls first-round pick didn’t know is there would also be a magic show. And an NBA 2K video-game tournament. And a straight-talk moment from 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony.
There are interactive workshops and smaller breakout sessions to keep players engaged. But when someone such as Grant Hill or Anthony Davis, both of whom presented at this year’s program, is talking attention is assumed. “You get those guys who are so engaged,” said Greg Taylor, the NBA’s senior vice president of player development. “They come ready to learn. They’re sitting in the front row.”

Kemba Walker can’t avoid it. Whenever he sets foot in the five boroughs, the questions come from every direction. “I’ve been hearing it for years,” Walker said Thursday, after working with youngsters at the National Basketball Players Association summer camp. “Every time I come home, ‘When are you going to come home and play for the Knicks?’ I know it’s a special place, I was a Knicks fan growing up, always rooted for the home team. But I just can’t see myself in a Knicks jersey, only because I’ve only been in one jersey.”
