MICHAEL
PORTER JR.

Denver • 2021-22
Dec. 1, 2019 - The Denver Nuggets have exercised patience every step of the way with 2018 NBA Draft pick Michael Porter Jr., that hasn't changed one month into what could have been his sophomore campaign. The Nuggets red-shirted Porter Jr. in Year 1 so that he could focus on recovering from neck surgery and have played him sparingly in Year 2 (his actual rookie season). Denver is fantastic at developing players so hang onto MPJ in dynasty leagues but don't expect him to start filling the stat sheet in 2019-20, the team just doesn't need to push him so soon.

Michael Malone says a full Nuggets squad with a healthy Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. with a possible two-time MVP in Nikola Jokic can be “scary.” Malone admits Murray will not be himself at the start of next season and will have to build up. But he says future is “bright”
