Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried will miss the rest of the regular season, but could return for the playoffs, according to the Associated Press.

An MRI on Faried’s ankle Monday showed no fractures in his sprained left ankle.

Faried was injured Sunday while driving for a layup against Portland. He told the Associated Press he had never felt such pain and initially feared a more serious injury but vowed to play in the postseason.

The Nuggets are playing for homecourt advantage in the playoffs for the Nuggets, and a win in either their final two games, vs Milwaukee tonight or Phoenix on Wednesday will seal homecourt advantage. Denver is an NBA-best 37-3 at home, where they’ve won 22 straight.

Faried is averaging 11.5 points and a team-best 9.2 rebounds per game in his second season.
