The Nuggets will be without Kenneth Faried for their final two games after an MRI revealed a sprain of the anterior talofibular ligament, but the second-year forward, who suffered the injury during Sunday’s game against the Blazers, is set on returning for the playoffs in less than a week.

Within two hours of spraining his left ankle Sunday, Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried vowed to be ready when the playoffs start within the next week.
“I know I will be out there,” he said. “I don’t care what’s going on. If I can walk, I can play.”
