Kenneth Faried will not play for the Nuggets for at least a week after a bout of back spasms. Faried, a star forward, left Friday’s game against the Nets in the third quarter and then did not play Sunday against the Grizzlies. He is getting treatment for his back at home in Denver.

“Hopefully we’ll get him back as soon as possible, whenever that is,” coach Michael Malone said Tuesday. “I think he won’t be available for at least seven to 10 days. The back is a funny thing, and he’s had back issues in the past. It happened when he went to the basket and got hit hard and fell hard and reaggravated it.”

Restricted free-agent center Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to the Denver Nuggets, league sources told ESPN.

Agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports and Denver president of basketball operations Tim Connelly reached agreement on the deal late Sunday night, league sources said.

With the deal, Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season — which would’ve allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
