The Denver Nuggets are doing a good job of hiding that they can’t count on two of their stars. The loss of Jamal Murray was already taken for granted, but Michael Porter Jr.’s back discomfort has forced the team to reinvent itself and Jokic to assume an even greater weight if possible. The Nuggets already said they would be wary of the forward’s evolution, and the shadows cast by his back emphasize this attitude. Right now, the medical corps you are unable to detect the causes of your pain, but the player is still unable to train.
During his latest examination, tests have found nothing alarming despite the player continuing to noticeably suffer from the area. The franchise has decided to monitor its situation day by day, but at the moment there is only the pain of the player as a guide to action. Faced with questions about the status of Porter Jr., Mike Malone could do nothing but resign himself. We’re trying to see what happens. I’d say Michael is going to be out any time soon. We will try to sit down with him one day and decide what is the best for him to be healthy again ”, said the coach during his last press conference.
Words do not augur an early improvement for Porter Jr., and the uncertainty may end up lengthening the deadlines for his return. From what his coach says, the operation could be a solution, but it is impossible to make such a decision in the absence of conclusive results on the player’s back pain. At the moment the player has already lost four games, and it does not seem that the account will stop anytime soon.
