Top Michael Porter Jr. News

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Available Friday

    Porter (quadriceps) is available Friday against the Spurs.

    Despite dealing with both a lingering knee and quad injury, Porter has missed just one contest all season. Since the All-Star break, the 25-year-old has averaged 18.8 points and 7.4 rebounds in 32.1 minutes, complementing impressive shooting splits of 51.9/41.8/90.0. In Denver's last matchup against San Antonio on April 2, Porter recorded 15 points, 16 boards and three assists in 35 minutes.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Probable against San Antonio

    Porter is probable for Friday's game against the Spurs due to a left quadriceps contusion.

    Porter has been dealing with a knee issue recently but hasn't been forced to miss time in over two months. Although he's dealing with a quadriceps issue ahead of Friday's matchup, he'll likely be available once again.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Grabs eight rebounds in victory

    Porter had 18 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and two assists over 37 minutes during Wednesday's 116-107 win over the Timberwolves.

    Porter hasn't missed a game this month despite playing with a knee injury. Although his rebounding totals remain steady, Porter's scoring numbers tend to fluctuate depending on how the flow of the game develops. The Nuggets will need an extra dose of aggressiveness from him as they try to seal up the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Available for Wednesday

    Porter (knee) is available for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, as expected.

    Porter was listed as probable on the initial injury report, so there was never much doubt about his status, but now we have official confirmation that he'll be active. Make sure you've got MPJ in your active lineup.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Probable for Wednesday's matchup

    Porter (knee) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.

    Porter continues to deal with a right knee issue, but he'll likely be able to suit up once again in the second half of a back-to-back set. Over his last five appearances, he's averaged 16.0 points and 7.8 rebounds in 31.2 minutes per game.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Available to play

    Porter (knee) is available for Tuesday's game against the Jazz, Jack Borman of Locked on Minnesota reports.

    Porter was carrying a probable tag into Tuesday, but he'll give it a go despite not being 100 percent. There's no word of any restrictions heading into tipoff.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Nursing knee issue

    Porter is probable for Tuesday's game against the Jazz due to right knee tendinopathy.

    This is a new ailment for Porter, who has also been battling an illness over the last few weeks. Even so, he's expected to suit up for Tuesday's clash.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Flirts with double-double in loss

    Porter ended Thursday's 102-100 loss to the Clippers with 14 points (6-18 FG, 2-10 3Pt), nine rebounds, one assist and one block in 38 minutes.

    Porter has been suffering through an illness, causing him to lose a step or two over the past two weeks. The last time Porter broke the 20-point barrier was two weeks ago against the Knicks, and even though he's averaged 32.6 minutes per game since his 31-point total, his shot continues to betray him. His success beyond the arc is notably poor, averaging only 36.4 percent from long range over the seven-game span.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Plays through illness for 18 points

    Porter recorded 18 points (7-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds and two steals over 33 minutes during Wednesday's 104-97 loss to Phoenix.

    Porter drew the start despite battling an unspecified illness but was fairly productive in the loss. Porter has plodded along with pedestrian scoring numbers over the past three games due to lower-than-expected shot volume, but his 16 attempts Wednesday is a move in the right direction. Porter can soar well above 20 points with enough opportunity, but he sometimes lacks the necessary aggression to make those opportunities happen on his own.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Good to go

    Porter (illness) is available for Wednesday's game versus the Suns.

    Porter was in danger of missing his first game since Feb. 9, but he will ultimately play through an illness. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual starting role at forward.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Returns to injury report

    Porter is probable for Wednesday's game against Phoenix due to an illness.

    Porter was dealing with an illness before suiting up in Monday's victory over Memphis, but he worked with an abridged workload, delivering 11 points (4-7 FG) and four rebounds in 22 minutes of action. His status will need to be monitored, but he appears firmly on track for Wednesday's contest.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Cleared for action

    Porter (illness) will play Monday versus Memphis.

    Porter and Nikola Jokic (back/hip) are available Monday, while Aaron Gordon (foot) and Jamal Murray (ankle) are out. The specifics of Porter's ailment are unclear, but no minutes restriction has been mentioned for the 25-year-old.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Dealing with illness

    Porter is questionable for Monday's game against the Grizzlies due to an illness.

    Porter and Aaron Gordon (foot) are late additions to the injury report, joining Nikola Jokic (back/hip) and Jamal Murray (ankle) as questionable. Given almost their entire starting lineup is questionable, it's difficult to project what the Nuggets' rotation will look like until we get clarity on who'll be available.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Extremely efficient in win Thursday

    Porter finished Thursday's 113-100 win over the Knicks with 31 points (13-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and eight rebounds in 37 minutes.

    There's no question the Nuggets will go as far as Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray can carry them, but the team gets an entirely new dimension on offense when Porter can knock down shots consistently. This 13-for-16 performance was one of his best showings of the entire campaign, and Porter is arguably going through one of his most productive stretches of the season. He's scored at least 20 points in four of his last five appearances, averaging 23.0 points per game while shooting 50 percent from deep and 60.9 percent from the field in that span.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Balls out in fourth quarter

    Porter closed Tuesday's 115-112 win over the Timberwolves with 26 points (9-15 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds and one assist over 32 minutes.

    Porter was a prime catalyst in the final stanza, scoring 13 of his 26 points in the final 12 minutes. Occasionally, the game doesn't work in Porter's favor, but he usually registers solid two-way numbers when he sees more than 30 minutes. The 6-foot-10 forward is especially effective when the opposition suffers a height disadvantage, and Porter excelled against the Timberwolves' shorthanded frontcourt.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Strong two-way play Sunday

    Porter ended Sunday's 107-105 loss to the Mavericks with 20 points (6-13 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals in 37 minutes.

    Porter is having an outstanding year as a secondary offensive alternative in Denver's two-man game of Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray but has been able to step up when needed. Porter has scored 20 or more points in four of his eight March appearances, averaging 18.8 points per game while shooting 47.3 percent from three-point range. He complements that scoring prowess with decent numbers in other categories, making him a valuable asset in fantasy and real life.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Keeps firing from downtown

    Porter contributed 13 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes during Friday's 117-106 win over the Spurs.

    Porter didn't have his best performance from a fantasy perspective, as he's shown the ability to fill the stat sheet in any given game, but he's been consistent when it comes to his three-point shooting. He's made multiple threes in all but two of his 12 appearances since the end of the All-Star break, a span in which he's averaging 19.9 points per game while shooting 42.4 percent from beyond the arc.
