Michael Porter Jr. News
Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. Remains optimistic that a contract extension will get done. Porter had his best statistical output as a professional last season, averaging 19.0 points and 7.3 assists while shooting a whopping 44.5 percent from deep. The 23-year-old will be entering the final year of his rookie contract if an agreement isn't reached before the start of the 2021-22 campaign. However, based on his play over the years, it would seem the franchise will do everything in its power to keep him in the Mile High City moving ahead. Nonetheless, Porter's fantasy outlook is higher than ever, and as long as he can remain healthy, he should be one of the most impactful fantasy options going.
Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. (back) will likely play in Game 3 against Phoenix. The 22-year-old has been dealing with tightness in his lower back since Game 1 but still managed to suit up for Game 2 on Wednesday. However, he has struggled during this series, averaging just 13 points and 6.5 boards. With Will Barton (hamstring) back in the picture as well, Porter's DFS outlook isn't as bright as it was just a few short weeks ago.
Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. (rest) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. It's the front end of a back-to-back set, so Denver will play it safe with the playoffs starting next week. Shaquille Harrison and Vlatko Cancar will benefit the most without Porter playing on Thursday. Sadly, neither of them are reliable enough to warrant using in DFS contests.
Denver Nuggets small forward Michael Porter Jr. had a 30-point night against the Hornets on Tuesday, shooting 12-for-18 from the field and 6-for-10 from downtown in a 117-112 win. He pulled down six rebounds and had two steals and one assist with five turnovers in 35 minutes. Taking care of the rock was a problem for Porter Jr., but it was an outstanding scoring performance. He now boasts six 30-point efforts for the season and two of them have come in his last three outings. With a poor defensive team like Minnesota up next on the schedule, Porter Jr. has a very good chance to keep up his hot scoring form on Thursday.
