DENVER (AP) — Nuggets versatile forward Will Barton will miss Denver’s game Sunday night (Monday, PHL time) against Golden State because of a right hip injury.
Barton was carted off the court Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) after feeling something pop when he took off for the basket during the third quarter of a win over Phoenix. He underwent an MRI on Sunday morning.
Denver coach Michael Malone said the team will have a clearer idea how long me may be sidelined Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). Malone added that Barton will be out for the “foreseeable future. But what does that mean? How long? That’s to be determined. Hopefully we’ll get some good news tomorrow.”
Barton signed a four-year deal to remain in Denver over the summer. He averaged 15.7 points and 4.1 assists last season.
