Michael Porter Jr. Returns With A Minutes Restriction – NBA News


9 mins agoDenver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. (heel) will return from a 13-game absence on Friday versus Portland but will play with a minutes restriction. Porter Jr. has missed multiple weeks with a left heel strain, so it’s completely understandable that the team won’t want to push him too hard in his first game back. A healthy Porter Jr. is a great asset in real life and in fantasy hoops, with him having averaged 16.4 points and 6.0 rebounds for the season. Bruce Brown has been getting a lot of burn in Porter Jr.’s absence and his fantasy stock takes a hit now, while his return could also have a negative impact on Aaron Gordon, who has enjoyed his best spell as a Nugget with Porter Jr. out of the lineup.Taavi Pailk – RotoBaller
