The injury hits keep coming for the surprising Denver Nuggets. With Will Barton, Gary Harris and Isaiah Thomas all sidelined, the Nuggets are going to be without All-Star big man Paul Millsap for at least the next month with a broken toe.

This is a major blow for a Nuggets team that heads into this week’s action with a 17-9 record.

Millsap, 33, suffered the toe injury this past Friday. It comes on the heels of him missing all but 38 games to injury last season.

The four-time All-Star started this season out strong, averaging 13.6 points and 7.0 rebounds on 50 percent shooting.
