Paul Millsap had successful surgery on his left wrist on Sunday and is expected to miss three months.
If Millsap misses exactly three months he will return with six weeks left in the fantasy season and will likely only contribute if your team is playoff bound. There isn’t a clear cut replacement in Denver with players like Will Barton, Wilson Chandler, Mason Plumlee, Juan Hernangomez and Kenneth Faried splitting up Millsap’s minutes and getting a slight bump. Mike Malone has chosen his starters based on match-ups with Faried starting on Friday after being a DNP-CD on Wednesday. The main fantasy impact will be the increase in usage for Gary Harris, Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray.
