The Nuggets still hope to see Michael Porter Jr. again this season | NBA

What if Michael Porter Jr. returns this season? However, this seemed unlikely on December 1, at the time of his lumbar operation, since the absence of the Denver winger was going to be counted in months.

But a little over a month after playing pool, Michael Porter Jr. surprised everyone when he returned to the courts on January 3 for a few shots before the match against the Mavericks, and again this night he made a few shots before the game against the Blazers.

From now on, the Denver Post advances that the Colorado franchise has not yet ruled out the idea of ​​a possible return this season. Both the 23-year-old and the Nuggets are optimistic, with rehabilitation going very well.

A return in a few months, plus that of Jamal Murray, would obviously be great news for Denver. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that the leaders will be very careful with Michael Porter Jr, who has a heavy liability with his back and was extended at a hefty price before the start of the season.

So we mustn’t go too fast so as not to jeopardize the next few years, with a talented player who has basically only had one big season so far, that is to say the 2020/21 financial year.
