Porter (ankle) logged eight minutes off the bench Friday in the Nuggets' 113-101 loss to the Thunder, finishing with four points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and two rebounds.
Though Porter received the green light to play after missing the Nuggets' final six games before the All-Star break, the Nuggets unsurprisingly eased the rookie back into the mix with a limited role on the second unit. Given Porter's injury history, Denver will likely take things slowly with him coming off his latest health setback, but the 21-year-old could eventually take on a regular 20-minute role once he regains conditioning.

Porter's ankle injury isn't expected to be anything too serious according to coach Michael Malone, Kendra Andrews of The Athletic reports.
Porter was forced to exit Friday's tilt with the Bucks early after suffering an ankle injury during the fourth quarter. Fortunately, the issue doesn't appear to be overly serious though the rookie forward's status will still be in question for Sunday's game against Detroit. In the event he's held out, Juancho Hernangomez and Torrey Craig would be the best bets to see expanded roles.
Porter is considered questionable to return to Friday's game against the Bucks due to an ankle injury, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

Porter continues to play well for the Nuggets, turning in another double-double Thursday. With the team ravaged by injuries, Porter has taken advantage and is currently putting up top-50 numbers. The fact he is only playing 25 minutes per game despite the injuries is a little concerning moving forward. However, as long as his current role holds steady, he is worth adding in all formats.
Porter collected 17 points (6-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 117-110 win over the Rockets.
Porter is playing at a very high level while coming off the bench for the Nuggets, hitting double figures in points in seven straight games while grabbing eight or more rebounds in six straight contests.

Porter (back) has been ruled out Wednesday against the Rockets, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.
Porter's back reportedly tightened up during warmups, prompting his late scratch. The 21-year-old has dealt with multiple back injuries in the past; while this issue is apparently unrelated to his previous injuries, according to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic, the Nuggets still figure to proceed cautiously with him. Jerami Grant and Juancho Hernangomez are candidates to benefit from increased run with Porter, Paul Millsap (knee) and Miles Plumlee (foot) all sidelined.
Porter (back) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Porter's back apparently tightened up prior to Wednesday's matchup in Houston, so the Nuggets will likely wait and see how he feels during warmups before determining his status. The 21-year-old has dealt with back injuries in the past, so Denver has every reason to play it safe with Porter. This comes at an unfortunate time, as Porter has performed well as a regular part of Denver's depleted rotation over the past four games, posting averages of 16.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals in 27.5 minutes per contest.
