The Denver Nuggets have had many problems this season when it comes to the roster’s health and missing Michael Porter Jr. is one of them.

Porter played nine games for Denver this season with his last being on November 6th. And it might just end up being his last game of the season.

Porter Jr. has been dealing with a nerve issue in his back that could jeopardize his return this season, according to The Denver Post.

The Nuggets have been vague about specifics of the injury and when Porter might be expected back. They have given him a timeline of a week to show improvements before considering other treatment options. Another back surgery is also a possibility.
