Will Barton has missed the Nuggets last two games with left toe inflammation and should return to action Tuesday night against the Heat.

After starting the year incredibly strong, Will Barton has been sidelined the last two games because of left toe inflammation.

During his pregame press conference, Nuggets head coach Michael Malone noted how Barton is feeling much better and that his status should be upgraded from questionable.

Just moments after Malone spoke, Chris Haynes from Yahoo Sports tweeted out that Barton is set to make his return tonight against Miami.

Barton is currently averaging 14 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game. Another thing to watch against the Heat is how this impacts the Nuggets rotation, considering they played Michael Porter Jr. each of the last two games with Barton out.
