Paul Millsap (left knee) and Thabo Sefolosha (groin) have officially been ruled out for Saturday’s game against the Bulls.
Millsap has missed the last seven games, allowing Ersan Ilyasova to start and average 13.0 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.7 triples in 30.3 minutes while shooting only 39.7 percent during that span. The report stated that Millsap participated in 70 percent of practice on Friday so there is a slight hope he makes it back for Sunday’s game against the Nets. Sefolosha will miss his fourth consecutive game so expect Tim Hardaway Jr. to continue getting heavy minutes and give him a long look if you are desperate for points and triples without much production in other categories. Taurean Prince has averaged 1.3 triples, 2.0 steals and 1.0 blocks over his last three so he may be more appealing than Hardaway based on your needs.
