Nuggets’ Faried Set to Play in Game 2
Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried said he will play in Game 2 of the Nuggets’ first-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night after sitting out the last three games with an ankle injury.
“You can’t sit me out for too long. I get frustrated, I get mad,” Faried said Sunday, before the Nuggets practiced. “I could’ve played [in Game 1 on Saturday] but they wanted me to sit out no matter how anxious or how exciting the game was for me. They wanted me to sit out and rest and be ready that much more for Tuesday.”
