Nuggets' Paul Millsap reportedly to undergo wrist surgery, out indefinitely

James Harden lead all scorers with 19 points, while Paul added 15 and Trevor Ariza chipped in 14.

Nuggets: Play at Houston on Wednesday.

Will Barton scored a game-high 25 points and went 5-for-6 from 3-point range for Denver.

Kings: Zach Randolph had 12 points and six rebounds in his third consecutive start at center.

With guard Chris Paul back from his month-long injury hiatus, the Rockets (13-4) are re-forging their own identity, particularly on the defensive end. We're going to miss him on the court. "We've got lobs, we've got floaters, we've got whatever's there". The Rockets also accumulated nine turnovers in the half.

Houston led 75-40 at the half, the Rockets' largest halftime lead of the season.

The incident occurred with 6:20 remaining in the second quarter of Denver's 127-109 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on November 19 at Staples Center.

"Given the circumstances, I'll take it", said Nuggets assistant Wes Unseld Jr., who coached the team while Malone stayed back at the team hotel.

"I thought he was joking", Barton said.

"I'm going to play the same way".

Millsap, 32, suffered the injury in Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Gary Harris chipped in 13 points for Denver.

Paul is expected to see about 28 minutes during Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

"You've got to understand, I'm not surprised by any of that stuff", Paul said. "There's a trust factor there and I trust Luc as much as I trust myself".

This is a crushing blow to the Denver Nuggets, who had steadily improved their play since starting out the season with a rough patch.

"We have to have that "next-man-up" mentality where, 'All right, here's your opportunity". The Kings, who had won their three previous home games against the Thunder, 76ers and Trail Blazers, have lost five of six overall.

Rockets Hall of Famers Hakeem Olajuwon and Elvin Hayes sat courtside next to Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta and were introduced to the crowd early in the second quarter.

The Rockets will be in action again against the New York Knicks Saturday night at Toyota Center.
