Jamal Murray and Michael Porter J. looks like they’ll be available at the start of next season. But those returns will come with a minute restriction to open the season, according to Denver Nuggets coach Michael Malone.
Murray missed all of the 2021-22 season, after tearing his ACL late in the 2020-21 campaign. Porter had back surgery in December and played in just nine games last season.
Both players have recently said they feel good and have been pain-free during workouts. The Nuggets hope that getting both back, along with two-time MVP Nikola Jokic and some offseason additions, that they can take the next step and contender for the NBA Finals.
