Denver Nuggets forward Paul Millsap on Wednesday returned to his first full practice since undergoing left wrist surgery in November.
Although Millsap said it felt good to be back with his teammates, he stopped short of putting an exact date on when he’ll return to game action.
“When he is back, there’s a good chance I start off by bringing him off the bench,” Malone sad. “He’s missed 42 games right now. And I think we’re 23-19 without him, and our group is playing at a high level.”
Also Wednesday, the Nuggets welcomed back center Mason Plumlee, who hasn’t played since Jan. 29 due to a calf injury. Plumlee is expected to play Friday against the San Antonio Spurs.
“It’s just great to have those guys back,” Malone said, according to the Post. “We’ll figure out who plays and when they play, but being healthy with 24 games to go [is] a good thing to be.”
The Warriors would face the Sacramento Kings during the 2018 preseason.
During their one trip to Washington, D.C., this season, the reigning champion Warriors will spend time with area kids, according to sources, having been uninvited from the customary trip to the White House.
Golden State star Kevin Durant played his rookie season for the Sonics before moving with the team, which became the Thunder. Durant returned to Seattle to play in front of a sellout crowd at Seattle Pacific University during the Crawsover Pro-Am in the summer of 2013, telling fans, “I miss you guys. Thank you for the warm welcome. I can’t wait to come back.”
According to a source, the Warriors had hoped to schedule an exhibition game in Seattle last fall but were unable to do so because of their preseason trip to China.
