Nuggets’ Porter Jr. suffers knee injury in practice

Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. confirmed to The Undefeated that he suffered a knee injury during a team scrimmage Wednesday.

Porter will miss the Las Vegas Summer League but is expected to be back for training camp, a source told The Undefeated.

He had been slated to make his Nuggets debut after missing his rookie season due to his second back surgery. The source said the team decided that playing in the summer league was not reason enough to rush the former Missouri forward back into action.

Porter, the 14th overall pick in 2018, did not have any back issues during practice and scrimmages this week.

The Denver Post first reported that Porter would miss the team’s summer league play.
