Nuggets' Michael Porter: Unlikely to play in playoffs

Porter (back) is not expected to play during the postseason, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Porter was on the verge of returning late last month but suffered a setback in the ramp-up process, and it's apparently significant enough to likely keep him out for the postseason. After missing all of his rookie season, Porter has appeared in just 125 regular-season games across the past three years. Fantasy managers looking to draft Porter next season have to keep in mind his injury history, as it was also the reason he fell in the 2018 Draft.

FBI: Michael Porter may have recorded more than 100 minors at YMCAs

CHICAGO (CBS) -- The FBI announced Tuesday that a man charged last summer may have recorded more than 100 minors in the locker and shower rooms at three Chicago area YMCAs. The FBI has launched a push to identify victims, who likely do not even know it happened. Michael Porter was charged in July of last year with multiple counts of  producing, receiving, and possessing child pornography. The Y said at that time that for 14 years, from 2006 until March 2020 when YMCA facilities had to close due to COVID-19, Porter visited three YMCA locations – the...

Nuggets' Michael Porter: Suffers minor setback

Porter (back) had a minor setback in his rehab and no decision has been made about his availability for the rest of the season, Mike Singer of the Denver Post reports. This is a tough blow for the Nuggets and Porter, as it seemed like the forward could be returning this week. That now seems highly unlikely, and the looming question is whether he'll be shut down for the remainder of the season. Fantasy managers still clinging onto Porter, or those that picked up him recently, should cut bait.

Nuggets' Michael Porter: Listed out Saturday

Porter (back) is listed as out Saturday against the Thunder. Last week, the Nuggets indicated that Porter may have a chance to get back on the floor sometime this week, but it looks like he's still in the final stages of his recovery from back surgery. The sharpshooting wing recently completed a rehab stint in the G League, and his status will likely be handled on a game-to-game basis going forward. Porter has not played since Nov. 6.

Nuggets' Michael Porter: To remain out Thursday

Porter (back) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Suns. Although he could still return to the court before the end of March, it appears Porter isn't quite there yet and he won't be available when the Nuggets host the Suns on Thursday. If rehab continues to go well with the G League's Grand Rapids Gold, however, Porter's next opportunity to return from the long absence could come Saturday against the Thunder.

Michael Porter returning next week?

Nuggets: 41-28 Sixers games with James Harden: 8. Nuggets games with either MPJ or Jamal Murray: 9 – 10:30 PM. It sounds like making excuses, but games like these are where I remember Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. are out. They wouldn’t improve some of Denver’s problems, but it would give Denver more options in how they want to play these games.

Nuggets' Michael Porter: Could return next week

Porter (back) could return as soon as next week, Ryan Blackburn of Denver Stiffs reports. This news tracks with the timetable that was given in late February, but the fact that it's being reiterated is a good sign that things are going well in Porter's G League rehab stint. Once Porter returns, he'll presumably be on a conservative minutes limit in his first several games back, if not longer. That said, Denver will want to ramp him up as much as possible heading into the playoffs.

Nuggets scrap plan to send Michael Porter, Jamal Murray to G League for now

The Nuggets have scrapped plans to send Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray to Grand Rapids for the time-being, two league sources told The Denver Post on Thursday. Both Porter and Murray were set to fly to Grand Rapids and practice with the Gold on Friday, but logistical concerns, in addition to the fact that they’d only be there for one practice, altered the plan, sources said. Neither player has had any kind of setback, and there was also a sense that some of the work they would’ve done in Grand Rapids could get done in Denver.

Jamal Murray and Michael Porter back before playoffs?

There is a strong sense within the Denver Nuggets locker room that both Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. could be back in time for the playoffs, if not sooner, sources told The Athletic. Porter is on track to return in mid to late March, a source said. Murray has been out since tearing his left ACL last April. The 25-year-old averaged a career-high 21.2 points and a career-best 40.8 3-point shooting percentage last season.

Nuggets' Michael Porter: Will continue rehab in G League

The Nuggets are planning to send Porter (back) to the G League's Grand Rapids Gold to scrimmage later this week, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. Singer adds that the Nuggets rarely go through full practices at this point in the season, so the stint in the G League will give Porter a better opportunity to get his legs under him before making an eventual return to game action. The 23-year-old forward was able to go through 1-on-1 drills during practice Tuesday, and Sam Amick of the Athletic reports that Denver is anticipating his return to the lineup sometime between mid-to-late March.
