Asked if he will play in Gm 1 Saturday, he said: "Hopefully."— Denver Nuggets (@denvernuggets) April 18, 2013 The Nuggets and fans initially thought the worst when Faried had to exit on crutches after sustaining his ankle sprain. He’s now walking without a boot, and he acknowledged that the ankle is getting better each day.Faried suffered the injury when he stepped on the ankle of Portland Trail Blazers rookie Will Barton while driving to the basket Sunday. If he’s unable to make it back for Game 1, the Nuggets have two days of rest before Game 2 and then another off day prior to Game 3, so he expects to be back at some point early in the first round.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
