Nuggets' Michael Porter Jr.: No timetable for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porter (back) doesn't have a timetable for a return to the court, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

It was known since Draft Night that the Nuggets weren't going to rush Porter onto the court during his first year as a pro, so him not having a timeline for a return is perfectly on par with his other injury news so far. There's a chance that Porter could be worth a waiver-wire addition later in the season, but for now he's avoidable in most formats given the ambiguity of his injury situation and the Nuggets' early-season success without his help.

Nuggets' Michael Porter Jr.: Won't play in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porter (back) won't be available for Wednesday's game against the Clippers, T.J. McBride of Mile High Sports reports.

Porter was optimistic he'd manage to return from back surgery in time for the season opener, but he'll be forced to miss at least the first contest of the 2018 campaign. His exact return date remains unknown, but the Nuggets aren't' expected to rush him back into action. Porter's next opportunity to take the court will come Saturday against Phoenix.

Nuggets' Michael Porter Jr.: Out for start of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porter Jr. (back) did not participate in Tuesday's opening day of training camp, T.J McBride of Mile High Sports reports.

Porter stated in mid-August that he was pain-free and hoping to play in the opener, but the Nuggets have yet to place a timetable on his return. He should be considered day-to-day, though the fact that he wasn't dressed for practice isn't encouraging.

Nuggets' Michael Porter: Says he's pain-free, hopes to be ready for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porter (back) recently said he's pain-free and hopes to be on the floor for the start of the 2018-19 season, Chris Forsberg of ESPN reports. "I don't have a date but I'm hoping to be back for the beginning of the year. Gotta heal up, but I feel great," said Porter. "I'm able to get on the court a little bit right now, do something different things. But my rehab has definitely been very conservative. They're really taking it easy with me, being patient with me."

Porter had a microdisectomy performed in November of last year to repair a bulging disk in his back and then underwent a second spinal procedure in July, which prompted concerns over his availability for the upcoming season. However, this latest update provides some overall optimism regarding Porter's chances of taking the court early on this year, with the 6-foot-10 forward saying, "I finally fell, like, good." It sounds as if the Nuggets are taking an extremely cautious approach with their prized rookie, so don't be surprised if Porter continues to have limitations well into training camp and potentially the regular season. The Nuggets have Will Barton and Paul Millsap locked into the top two forward spots, so Porter would likely have to battle for reserve minutes at those two positions if he does indeed get fully cleared prior to the opener. Look for further clarification to be provided once camp draws near in September.
