The Denver Nuggets are already without Gary Harris, Will Barton, Isaiah Thomas, and Michael Porter Jr. due to injury.

Now add Paul Millsap to the list, who will miss time due to a broken toe suffered in a loss at Charlotte Friday night, according to multiple reports.

Broken toe injuries can cause a player to miss just a couple of weeks or far more, depending on which toe and the severity of the break.

Paul Millsap has averaged 16.4 points and 8 rebounds a night, shooting 52.6% and knocking down 44.4% of his threes in the last five games. He has become a crucial cog next to Nikola Jokic up front on a Nuggets team that has won seven in a row before falling to Charlotte on Friday.

With Millsap out, Trey Lyles will have a much bigger role.
