Michael Porter Jr. is returning after missing all but nine games of the 2021-2022 season after back surgery. The explosive 6-foot-10, 218-lb explosive forward has tantilized fantasy drafters with his 19 PPG, 7.3 RPB, and 44.5% 3P accuracy in 61 games just two years ago. Due to injury, Porter Jr. is placed around other safe, veteran options who lack anywhere close to his upside. It's important to note: the return of Murray could stifle his upside. In 35 games without Murray on the floor, Porter Jr. has averaged 21.3 PPG, 8.0 RPG, and 3.2 3PM. In 81 games with Murray, those numbers drop to 11.5 PPG, 5.2 RPG, and only 1.5 3PM.

Michael Porter Jr. (back) unlikely to return in playoffs

Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. (back) is unlikely to return in time for the NBA Playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

Porter is dealing with a back issue that has kept him out for nearly the entire season, and it's becoming increasingly clear that he probably won't return at all this season. The Nuggets will be shorthanded, and will need young players like Bones Hyland to step up if they want to have an extended playoff run.
