Will Barton is expected to return to the lineup for the Denver Nuggets in their second game against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Barton is going to test his hamstring during warmups and if everything is fine, he’ll return to the lineup.

The Nuggets trail the best-of-7 series 1-0 after losing Game 1 on Monday night.

Barton sustained a hamstring injury in April and has been sidelined ever since. Barton hasn’t played a playoff game since 2018-19, missing the 2020 playoffs in the bubble last season.

In 56 games this season, Barton averaged 12.7 points, four rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game.

The Suns are 5.5-point favorites over the Nuggets in Phoenix for Game 2 on Wednesday evening.
