Nuggets head coach Michael Malone said Sunday that Porter (back) remains out for the "foreseeable future," NBA writer T.J. McBride reports.

The Nuggets have revealed very little information about the back soreness that will cost Porter his fourth straight game when the Nuggets face the Blazers on Sunday. It doesn't appear that he'll be back on the floor anytime soon, but the Nuggets have not offered any sort of timetable. McBride notes that a recent MRI didn't reveal anything of great concern, so for the time being, Porter will be monitored closely until the team's medical staff feels he's ready to return to on-court work. With a four-game Week 5 ahead for Denver, Porter should be left on the bench in weekly lineup leagues.
