Once Paul Millsap is ready to return to the starting lineup Will Barton will move back to the bench.
Nothing surprising here. Barton will join Devin Harris, Trey Lyles, Mason Plumlee and a fifth player that is dependent on match-ups. Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Wilson Chandler and Nikola Jokic will continue to start when Millsap is ready. Nuggets coach Michael Malone said earlier today that Millsap is working on his conditioning and expects him to rejoin the starting unit next week. This is an obvious hit to Barton’s value but he should still be held onto right now as he’s been an effective bench player for the Nuggets in the past.
