Hours after being released from an Oakland, Calif.-area hospital Sunday, Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried was back in uniform. He not only played against the Portland Trail Blazers, he started at the Pepsi Center.

It was the culmination of a whirlwind, scary 18 hours.

“Not to sound coldhearted, I wasn’t concerned at all, because we had a game to win,” Malone said. “Afterward, that’s when the concern set in and how was he. You hear he has to go to the hospital, neck injury, that can be very scary. … Then you think about Kenneth the person, once the game is over. It’s great to have him back.”
