DENVER – The Nuggets’ All-Star offseason acquisition, Paul Millsap, could miss up to three months as he is set to undergo wrist surgery, according to The Denver Post.

Millsap is second on the team in scoring and rebounding—just behind center Nikola Jokic.

According to The Post, Millsap tore a ligament in his left wrist during Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers and sat out Monday’s game against the Sacramento Kings.

The tentative timetable would put Millsap back in the lineup sometime around the All-Star break in February, according to The Post.
