  • Porter (back) said Saturday after the Nuggets' 123-101 loss to the Warriors in Game 1 that he's hopeful to play at some point during the series, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports. "Right now, I'm taking it game by game. I'm not ruling anything out," Porter said. "This is a thing I don't ever want to deal with again, so I'm just taking my time...I'm playing it game by game. Every day I'm getting closer." After undergoing lumbar spine surgery on Dec. 1 -- his third back procedure in just over four years -- Porter had initially targeted a return to the lineup at some point in March. However, Porter's timeline for playing was pushed back due to a setback, which Mike Singer of The Denver Post relays was a result of overwork rather than an aggravation of the back issue. Porter sounds like he's making strides in his recovery, but the Nuggets have yet to offer any indication that the 6-foot-10 forward has resumed full-court, full-contact activities. Assuming that's the case, Porter will face long odds to be available for the series with Golden State, despite his own optimism about his health.

  • Porter (back) is not expected to play during the postseason, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Porter was on the verge of returning late last month but suffered a setback in the ramp-up process, and it's apparently significant enough to likely keep him out for the postseason. After missing all of his rookie season, Porter has appeared in just 125 regular-season games across the past three years. Fantasy managers looking to draft Porter next season have to keep in mind his injury history, as it was also the reason he fell in the 2018 Draft.

  • Porter (back) had a minor setback in his rehab and no decision has been made about his availability for the rest of the season, Mike Singer of the Denver Post reports. This is a tough blow for the Nuggets and Porter, as it seemed like the forward could be returning this week. That now seems highly unlikely, and the looming question is whether he'll be shut down for the remainder of the season. Fantasy managers still clinging onto Porter, or those that picked up him recently, should cut bait.
