Top Michael Porter Jr. News

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Posts double-double

    Porter supplied 19 points (8-16 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, one block and two steals across 37 minutes during Friday's 119-111 win over the Suns.

    Porter made his presence felt on both ends of the court Friday, and he stepped up with some clutch shots in the fourth quarter when the Suns were threatening with a comeback. The injury issues surrounding Jamal Murray (ankle) have forced Porter to handle a bigger role on offense, but he has responded well to the challenge. He's averaging 18.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists and a combined 1.5 steals and blocks per game over his last 10 outings.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Scores season-high 30 points

    Porter closed Wednesday's 134-124 win over the Rockets with 30 points (11-17 FG, 7-12 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and one steal across 34 minutes.

    Porter was impressive Wednesday and was one of the main reasons why the Nuggets escaped with the victory in this tight contest. He made his presence felt on both ends of the court, was efficient with his shot, and registered his fifth double-double of the season. Porter has been scorching hot of late after recording his ninth straight game with 20 or more points, and he's averaging 24.3 points per contest while shooting 55.9 percent from the field and 48.8 percent from deep in that span.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Grabs 10 boards in win

    Porter recorded eight points (3-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt), 10 rebounds and three assists over 29 minutes during Monday's 113-104 victory over the Clippers.

    Porter failed to step up offensively in a game where Jamal Murray (hamstring), Nikola Jokic (back) and Aaron Gordon (heel) were all sidelined, but the sharpshooter made his presence felt by grabbing double-digit rebounds for the sixth time this season. The poor shooting night can likely be chalked up as an outlier, as it was just the fourth time this season he failed to score in double figures. On the season, Porter is averaging 16.9 points and 7.8 rebounds while shooting 46.2 percent from the field and 38.1 percent from deep.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Hits for 25 in loss

    Porter had 25 points (9-16 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and one steal over 31 minutes during Wednesday's 124-119 loss to the Magic.

    With Jamal Murray (hamstring) still sidelined, Porter stepped up as the Nuggets' second-leading scorer behind Nikola Jokic, producing his third game this season with 25 or more points while tying his season high in made three-pointers. The 25-year-old wing is averaging 19.0 points, 7.8 boards and 3.3 threes in the eight games Murray has missed so far, numbers slightly above his season averages.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Another double-double

    Porter contributed 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and 11 rebounds across 33 minutes during Friday's 115-110 loss to the Pelicans.

    Porter has three double-doubles on the season, and two of those have come across his last three appearances, so he's trending in the right direction. Tasked with an uptick in usage while Jamal Murray (hamstring) is out, the forward has stepped his game up and is averaging 18.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.8 blocks per game across his last five outings.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Cools off against Clippers

    Porter ended with 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 0-2 FT), five rebounds, one block and one steal in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 111-108 win over the Clippers.

    Porter finally cooled off Tuesday but had been very solid in recent games. In seven November games so far, Porter is averaging 18.6 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 blocks and 2.7 three-pointers. He'll continue to see more usage with Jamal Murray (hamstring) sidelined.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Records double-double in loss

    Porter contributed 25 points (11-19 FG, 3-10 3Pt), 10 rebounds and one block over 38 minutes during Sunday's 107-104 loss to the Rockets.

    Porter topped 20 points for the fourth time in the last five matchups Sunday, and he hauled in double-digit rebounds for just his second double-double of the 2023-24 campaign. He got off to a relatively slow start to the season with single-digit scoring totals in three of his first five outings but has turned things around since then, averaging 23.0 points and 8.4 rebounds in 33.8 minutes per game over his last five appearances.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Carves up Chicago

    Porter registered 27 points (9-16 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 31 minutes during Saturday's 123-101 win over the Bulls.

    Porter posted a season-high 27 points in smooth fashion, as Chicago had no comparable size matchup for Porter on the perimeter or rim protection to withstand his two-man game with Nikola Jokic. Jamal Murray exited Saturday's game with a hamstring injury, and Porter would likely be tasked with a bump in usage if Murray is forced to miss time -- although overall synergy of the Denver offense would decrease.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Drops 24 on Mavs

    Porter provided 24 points (10-18 FG, 4-8 3Pt), nine rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 34 minutes during Friday's 125-114 win over Dallas.

    The 24 points were a season high for Porter as he looks to shake out of a bit of an early scoring slump, and his 43.7 percent shooting from the field is a full five points lower than last season. To his credit, the 25-year-old is finding other ways to contribute -- he's grabbed at least nine boards in four of six contests, and his 8.2 rebounds per game average would be a career high, topping the 7.3 he pulled in 2020-21.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Little involvement in win

    Porter closed with eight points (3-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt), one rebound, two assists and one block across 19 minutes during Monday's 110-102 win over the Jazz.

    Porter picked up three fouls in his 19 minutes of action and never found offensive rhythm. Denver shot just 42.9 percent as a team, so there will be better days ahead for both parties. A matchup against Minnesota on Wednesday is up next.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Strong from deep in 20-point outing

    Porter recorded 20 points (8-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt), nine rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes during Sunday's 128-95 win over Oklahoma City.

    Porter led all Nuggets players in threes made while finishing second on the team in scoring and one rebound shy of a double-double. Porter surpassed the 20-point mark for the first time this season and has now connected on two or more threes in all three of Denver's games thus far.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Will play Tuesday

    Coach Michael Malone said Porter (ankle) will play in Tuesday's regular-season opener against the Lakers, Vinny Benedetto of The Denver Gazette reports.

    Porter didn't make any appearances during preseason action, but that appears to have been precautionary. It's still possible the sharpshooter is limited versus Los Angeles after a lengthy absence, but further clarity on Porter's workload should surface closer to Opening Night.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Out again Thursday

    Porter (ankle) will not play in Thursday's preseason game against the Clippers, Vic Lombardi of Altitude TV reports.

    Porter has been unable to make any appearances in the preseason. Previous reports have indicated that he'll be ready for Opening Night on Oct. 24 against the Lakers, but this is worth monitoring closely over the weekend. The Nuggets' first official injury report should provide further clarity on Porter's status.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Out again Sunday

    Porter (ankle) will not play in Sunday's exhibition against the Bulls, Katy Winge of AltitudeTV reports.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Remains sidelined Thursday

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Out for exhibition opener

    Porter (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's preseason opener against the Suns, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.

    As expected, Porter has been downgraded from doubtful to out due to a minor ankle injury he sustained at the beginning of training camp. In his absence, Justin Holiday will likely slide into the starting lineup, while Christian Braun (calf), Hunter Tyson, Julian Strawther and Peyton Watson are candidates for increased run off the bench.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Unlikely to play Tuesday

    Porter (ankle) is unlikely to play in Tuesday's preseason game against the Suns, Harrison Wind of reports.

    Porter sustained a minor ankle sprain during practice last week, and the issue will likely prevent him from suiting up as the preseason gets underway. While the injury doesn't appear to be a significant concern, it's unclear whether he'll be cleared to make his preseason debut Thursday against Chicago.
