This is not good news to say the least.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. is “facing a minimum of 10 additional quarantine days due to health and safety protocols.”
Porter Jr. finished a seven-day quarantine this week due to contact tracing protocols, and now faces an additional quarantine period in the 10 to 14-day range, sources said. https://t.co/4Wc0sMjKp6

This is not good news for the Nuggets second year player as Porter has already missed four games because of this and could miss even more due to an additional quarantine. Over the course of the next two weeks the Nuggets play six games that Porter could miss if he does indeed have to be out 10-14 more days.
In the four games he’s played this season, Porter is averaging 19.5 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. Porter has not appeared in a game for the Nuggets since December 29th in which he scored 30 points in a loss to the Sacramento Kings.
