Will Barton (left knee soreness) is unlikely to return for the Western Conference Finals as he continues to rehab his knee injury in Miami.
Barton hasn't seen the court since March and while the Nuggets have not given any updates on his injury, it's clear the soreness is significant. This news does not come as a surprise but it's still unfortunate for the Nuggets on the heels of a buzzer beater loss to the Lakers. Barton finished this season as the 66th ranked overall player, a major bounce back from the 2018-19 season where he finished outside the top-200. Hopefully his rehab goes well and he can continue putting up solid numbers next season.
