Will Barton will remain out of action indefinitely, due to a knee injury.

Barton is dealing with knee soreness and there is no timetable for his return.

Therefore, Barton is expected to miss at least the first round of the playoffs, where the Denver Nuggets face the Utah Jazz.

The Nuggets lead the series (1-0), with Game 2 taking place on Wednesday.
