Michael Porter Jr. Ruled Out of Summer League Following Setback

Former lottery pick Michael Porter Jr. simply cannot get healthy.

After missing out on his lone season in college with Mizzou, his lingering back issues carried over into his first season in the NBA. The Denver Nuggets snagged Porter late in the lottery after medicals forced him to drop to near the middle of the first round. Porter had a second back surgery last season which forced him to miss the entirety of his rookie campaign.

Finally he was cleared and was set to play his first NBA minutes in Summer League, but that too was taken away from the stretch forward. According to reports, Porter will now miss Summer League after suffering a knee injury in a team scrimmage.

The team believes Porter’s latest setback will not turn into a long-term issue and the hope is that he is still ready by the start of training camp.

At 6’11”, Porter has all the tools and athleticism to become a generational player in today’s NBA.
