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.”

Brooklyn Nets guard D’Angelo Russell had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday.

The procedure was performed by Dr. Riley Williams III at the Hospital for Special Surgery. No timetable for his return was announced.

“It’s an arthroscopic surgery, so the plan would be for him to return this season,” general manager Sean Marks said. “It’s definitely frustrating for D’Angelo. He’s going into this as another challenge. He knows he’ll bounce back from this and we have no doubts in our mind that he’ll be better and stronger than he was before.”

Russell missed time due to knee injuries last season, but this latest knee injury was not related.

Russell has played in 12 games for Brooklyn this season with team-leading averages of 20.9 points and 5.7 assists.

Memphis Grizzlies guard Mike Conley is out for an indefinite period because of soreness in his left Achilles and heel, the team announced Friday.

The Grizzlies did not provide a timetable for his return, saying only that they would provide an update in approximately two weeks.

“It’s unfortunate,” Grizzlies coach David Fizdale told reporters Friday. “But watching him play in pain like that and really trying to push through that stuff was worse to watch.”

Conley will undergo therapy to help in the healing process after consulting with physicians and the team’s medical staff.

The guard has started 12 of the Grizzlies’ first 14 games this season. Conley is averaging 17.1 points, 2.3 rebounds, 4.1 assists in his 11th NBA season. He has been playing an average of 31.1 minutes each game.

Cavaliers starting point guard Derrick Rose will miss at least the next two weeks with a sprained left ankle.

The Cavaliers say Rose had additional tests Friday at the Cleveland Clinic Sports Health Center. Rose’s ankle will be immobilized in a boot for the next week, and he will undergo “an extended treatment process over the next two to three weeks.”

“Just a jacked-up ankle,” Rose told ESPN. “I’m just trying to figure it out, bro. Right now, it’s just a jacked-up ankle. Just sore. I’m getting a lot of treatment for it, and tonight will be my first time wearing a boot. So I’ll wear this, for I don’t know how long, to see how it helps.”

Rose injured the ankle Oct. 20 at Milwaukee and missed four games, then returned, before missing Cleveland’s past four games.
