Porter (knee) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against Phoenix.

Porter was held out of the preseason finale with a knee issue, but his absence was likely precautionary. The 23-year-old will be locked into a starting forward spot this season and is widely considered to be among the favorites for the Most Improved Player award after a strong 2020-21 campaign in which he averaged 19.0 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.9 blocks and 2.8 threes per game. With Jamal Murray (knee) sidelined for several more months, Porter will be tasked with serving as the No. 2 offensive option alongside reigning MVP Nikola Jokic.
