Paul Millsap (wrist) will reportedly undergo surgery and will be sidelined indefinitely according to Shams Charania.
Millsap left Sunday’s game against the Lakers and did not return. X-Rays came back negative on his left wrist which ruled out a fracture but there must still be something wrong which requires a procedure to correct. Nikola Jokic will get a bump in value purely due to the fact he’ll get more touches while Kenneth Faried, who started for Millsap on Monday, is the presumed starter moving forward so he’s a guy worth owning in most formats. Hernangomez and Lyles are also interesting targets but are more so suited in deeper formats for now, however, they do have upside so are worth keeping an eye on.
Update: ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says Millsap’s surgery will repair a torn ligament in his left wrist and he could be sidelined for up to three months.
