Paul Millsap will undergo surgery on his left wrist and be out indefinitely.
Millsap suffered the injury in Sunday's loss at the Lakers. Initial X-rays returned clean, but Millsap had further tests over the past two days that confirmed the need for surgery.
Adrian Wojnarowski reports Millsap's surgery will be to repair a torn ligament and could force him to miss three months.
Millsap is in Year 1 of a three-year, $90 million deal with the Nuggets.
