News of Paul Millsap‘s wrist injury — which will likely keep him out until the All-Star break — was a shock for Denver Nuggets fans, and it’s clear that the four-time All-Star can’t easily be replaced

What will the Nuggets do to fill the void? Does it spell the end of the season? CBS Sports’ Matt Moore joined Sean Walsh and T.J. McBride of Mile High Sports AM 1340 | FM 104.7, and says, the team can function fine without Millsap.

“I think this team is well-positioned to survive it,” Moore said. “With [Nikola] Jokic, if you’re able to position him with shooters, and you’re able to play small ball. You can win that way. That’s one of the good things about the Nuggets; they have a lot of different ways they can win.”

Moore addressed the defensive void that Millsap leaves, and how the Nuggets’ mindset sets them up to be successful, even without him. “I think we’re seeing that the defensive shift that they have tried to adjust over the summer in terms of mindset and schematic approach, are paying dividends that doesn’t necessary mean that they’re tied to Millsap,” Moore spoke. “They don’t necessarily have to have Millsap in order for that mindset to carry over — and that’s big.”
