Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. will miss Wednesday night’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers because of lumbar management, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

There is optimism he could be back for Friday’s game against the Utah Jazz.

A back injury limited Porter to nine games in 2021-22, and he underwent lumbar spine surgery last November, his third back procedure since November 2017.

He is averaging 18 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists, shooting 50% from 3-point range, through four games for the 2-2 Nuggets.
