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 was slated to make his Nuggets debut after missing his rookie season due to his second back surgery, but the source said the team decided that summer league was not serious enough to rush the former Missouri forward back.

The 14th overall pick 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.
