Huge Blow to the Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets are going to be without forward Michael Porter Jr for at least another 10-14 days as the forward is required to quarantine from the team.

The Nuggets are currently sitting 3-5 on the year which is good for 11th in the western conference, even though Nikola Jokic is playing out of his mind.

As for Porter, he already completed the seven-day quarantine from team activities this week as there was concerns regarding his contact tracing. He's already missed the last four games and is slated to now miss a few more which is horrible news for the Nuggets as they try to navigate through a shortened season.

Porter has been a breakout star for the team so far this season, averaging 19.5 points per game and 6.8 rebounds.
