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.

Nuggets' Emanuel Terry: Gets camp deal from Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nuggets signed Terry to a training camp contract Tuesday.

Terry earned an invite to camp after suiting up for the Nuggets' entry in the Las Vegas Summer League. The undrafted rookie out of Lincoln Memorial University appeared in all five of the Nuggets' games in Las Vegas, averaging 7.4 points and 5.0 rebounds in 17.6 minutes per game while shooting 60.7 percent from the field. He's unlikely to make the Nuggets' final roster out of camp, but could earn a spot in the G League if he stands out in practices or exhibition play.

Nuggets' DeVaughn Akoon-Purcell: Agrees to two-way deal with Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akoon-Purcell agreed Monday with the Nuggets on a two-way contract, Gina Mizell of The Denver Post reports.

The swingman earned one of the Nuggets' pair of two-way contracts by impressing his defensive intensity and athleticism in the summer league, during which he averaged 12.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.5 assists in four games. It's expected that the former Illinois State standout will see most of his action in the G League in 2018-19, but Akoon-Purcell could end up getting some run in the NBA if injuries test the Nuggets' depth on the wing.
