Top Michael Porter Jr. News

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Hits 30-point mark in win Thursday

    Porter supplied 30 points (12-23 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals across 38 minutes during Thursday's 103-97 victory over Miami.

    Porter reached the 30-point mark for the third time this season, and the fact that two of those performances have come near the end of February is encouraging for Denver, especially with the immediate future of Jamal Murray cloudy due to the right ankle sprain he suffered against Miami. Porter could pick up a bigger role on offense if Murray misses Saturday's trip to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Top scorer in season-high outing

    Porter recorded 34 points (13-21 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 34 minutes during Friday's 127-112 win over Portland.

    Porter led all players in Friday's contest in scoring and threes made while ending as one of two Nuggets players with a double-double and setting a new season high in scoring in an offensive outburst. Porter has surpassed the 30-point mark in two games this season, with the other occurrence taking place Nov. 29 when he scored 30 points. Porter has connected on five or more threes in seven games, with Friday being his first such performance since Jan. 14 against Indiana.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Records double-double in win

    Porter totaled 22 points (9-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds and two assists across 31 minutes during Thursday's 130-110 victory over Washington.

    Porter posted his first double-double since Jan. 12, when he finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds against the Pelicans. Porter has scored in double digits in nine games in a row, a span in which he's averaging 16.9 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Sinks three triples in loss

    Porter scored 19 points (8-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt) and added four rebounds and two assists over 37 minutes in Wednesday's 102-98 loss to the Kings.

    Porter has now achieved double-digit scoring outputs in his last eight games, averaging 16.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.5 blocks and 0.3 steals in that span. However, his three-point efficiency has taken a dip recently, averaging only 34.3 percent from long distance. As the Nuggets look to bounce back after the break, they will likely need more consistency from beyond the arc from Porter.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Cleared for Monday

    Porter (knee) will play Monday night against the Bucks.

    Porter was added to the injury report as probable after missing Friday's matchup against the Kings, marking his first absence of the season. However, he'll be good to go for Monday and is coming off a strong 27-point performance in his last action Thursday against the Lakers.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Probable for Monday's contest

    Porter (knee) is probable to play Monday versus Milwaukee.

    Porter sat out Saturday's 135-106 loss to the Kings with right knee tendinopathy, but he looks as though he'll be ready to play Monday. The Nuggets will likely wait and see if Porter can make it through morning shootaround unscathed before formally clearing him to play ahead of the 8 p.m. ET tipoff.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Ruled out for Friday

    Porter (knee) will not play in Friday's game against the Kings.

    This is a massive blow for Denver, as Porter was previously listed as probable. In addition to Porter, the Nuggets will be without Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (hamstring). Peyton Watson, Justin Holiday and Christian Braun are likely to soak up significant minutes as a result.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Likely to play against Sacramento

    Porter is listed as probable for Friday's game versus the Kings due to right knee tendinopathy.

    Porter has yet to miss a game this season and isn't expected to do so Friday despite dealing with a knee injury. Since the beginning of 2024, Porter is shooting 40.2 percent on 6.5 three-point attempts per contest across 18 appearances.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Drops 27 against Lakers

    Porter finished Thursday's 114-106 win over the Lakers with 27 points (11-20 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one block over 38 minutes.

    It was Porter's best scoring effort since he poured in 30 points against the Rockets on Nov. 29. The fifth-year forward has scored in double digits in six straight games, but that's his second-longest such streak of the season as he continues to have trouble being a consistent offensive threat. During those six contests, he's averaging 16.7 points, 6.8 boards, 2.8 threes and 1.7 assists.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Swats three shots

    Porter totaled 12 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists and three blocks across 24 minutes during Sunday's 112-103 victory over Portland.

    This was the ninth career game in which Porter recorded at least three blocks, but he's not usually known for his defense, as he's on pace to average 0.7 blocks and 0.5 steals for the season. Although his minutes have remained high at 34.0 per game over his last five outings, Porter has cooled off offensively with a 39.2 percent mark from the field.

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

    Porter closed with 20 points (8-19 FG, 4-12 3Pt), eight rebounds and two assists over 35 minutes during Saturday's 111-105 victory over Philadelphia.

    Porter put forth a strong game from deep while ending as one of three Nuggets with 20 or more points and finishing two boards short of a double-double in a winning effort. Porter has now recorded at least 20 points and eight boards in 11 games this season.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Good to go Tuesday

    Porter (illness) is available for Tuesday's game versus the Pacers.

    Porter has been upgraded from probable to available Tuesday despite dealing with a non-COVID illness. The 25-year-old forward is averaging 19.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks in 34.6 minutes across his last five appearances.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Still dealing with illness

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Good to go Sunday

    Porter (illness) has been cleared to play Sunday versus Washington.

    Porter appears to be dealing with a minor illness, but he will suit up nonetheless. Denver's full cast of contributors is available with the exception of Julian Strawther, who is amid a multi-week absence due to a knee issue.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Appears on injury report

    Porter is questionable to play Sunday versus Washington due to an illness.

    Porter being added to the injury report within three hours of Denver's 6 p.m. ET tipoff against the Wizards does not bode well for his status. If he's ultimately unable to suit up, Peyton Watson or Christian Braun could slide into the starting lineup, while Denver's main cast of contributors would all see an uptick in usage.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Pops for 20 in Tuesday's loss

    Porter closed Tuesday's 126-121 loss to Philadelphia with 20 points (6-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds and one steal across 34 minutes.

    A couple of years ago, it seemed like Porter's career, or at least his ability to be an impact player in the NBA, might be in jeopardy due to back trouble that required surgery. The 25-year-old forward hasn't missed a game yet in 2023-24 though, and he's scored at least 20 points in three straight games and five of eight in January. Porter's averaging 17.5 points, 5.4 boards, 3.1 threes and 1.4 assists to kick off the month while shooting 53.6 percent from the floor and 46.3 percent from beyond the arc.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Questionable to play Tuesday

    Porter is questionable to play Tuesday against Philadelphia due to left knee inflammation.

    Porter has yet to miss a game this season, averaging 31.1 minutes across 41 starts for Denver. If he's unable to suit up Tuesday, Justin Holiday and Christian Braun would likely be the main candidates to absorb his workload.

  • Nuggets' Michael Porter: Strong from deep in 25-point game

    Porter amassed 25 points (9-15 FG, 7-11 3Pt), eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal across 37 minutes during Sunday's 117-109 victory over the Pacers.

    Porter led all players in Sunday's contest in threes made while finishing with a team-high-tying scoring mark, ending two rebounds short of a double-double and adding a pair of blocks and a handful of assists in a balanced showing. Porter has scored 25 or more points in six games this year, connecting on at least seven threes for the second time.
