As if it wasn’t bad enough that Nuggets Coach Michael Malone is suspended for one game for contacting an official after their loss to the Lakers, the team’s prized power forward, Paul Millsap, suffered a wrist injury that will see him out of the season indefinitely. Millsap has been averaging 15.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. His absence will hurt the small lineup of Nuggets that is mostly composed of guards.

Naysayers continue to doubt the rebirth of the Boston Celtics this season, even with an admirable 16 consecutive winning streak under their belt. Compared to one of the most popular teams in the league right now, the Golden State Warriors, which have eked out a winning streak of only two, the Celtics have a lone “superstar” player in their team. However, that’s hardly worth complaining about, especially since the Celtics’ game plan of selfless playing has been working out well for them. They have been playing like a well-oiled machine and are expected to put pressure on top teams like the Cavaliers.

Two-time All-Star David Lee recently announced his retirement.

His career history spans playing for 5 teams, starting with the New York Knicks where he was the team’s second first-round pick (30th overall) in the 2005 NBA draft. He was then signed by the Warriors and was traded to the Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs in his final season.
