Plumlee has been diagnosed with a right cuboid injury, according to Mike Singer of The Denver Post. He rolled the right foot after landing on a Timberwolves player during the first half of Monday’s game, but later returned to action. He said after the game that he received treatment from the training staff and X-rays didn’t reveal any damage.
“I just came down on someone’s foot,” he said. “X-rays were good.”
It’s the latest in a series of injuries for the Nuggets, who are already without Jamal Murray, Paul Millsap and Gary Harris. It should result in more playing time for Jerami Grant and maybe extra minutes for Michael Porter Jr.
Through 43 games, Plumlee is averaging 7.4 points and 5.6 rebounds in about 17 minutes per night.
