Five days after shuffling out of Pepsi Center on crutches, Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried reported improvement in his sprained left ankle and remained optimistic about playing Denver’s playoff opener Saturday against the Golden State Warriors.
“I feel physically better,” he said Thursday. “I can walk without a boot. I can walk barefoot now. It’s just getting better and better each day. Like I’ve said, if I can walk, I can play, so I’m just going to see how good the tape job is when game time comes.”
Asked if that meant he would try to play in Game 1, Faried said: “Hopefully. I’m not making any promises. If I’m cleared, I’m playing.”
