The Nuggets announced in their press release that "additional evaluation and consultation is ongoing to determine the best course of medical care."
The 32-year-old All-Star suffered the injury in the second quarter of the Nuggets' 127-109 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
Millsap is averaging 15.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 16 games this season, his first with the Nuggets.
