Michael Porter Jr. was made available to take part in the Denver Nuggets’ Friday game against the Phoenix Suns, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

After being a starter in the first four games of the season, the promising forward missed the next 10 games due to league’s health and safety protocols.

It was later confirmed that Porter had tested positive for coronavirus and was being held out until he could test negative several times in a row.

Porter is a valuable offensive piece for the Nuggets averaging 19.5 points and 6.8 rebounds per contest in four games this year.

Porter had played his last game on December 29. Since then, he did not participate in his team’s basketball activities remaining out almost three weeks.

The Nuggets’ head coach Michael Malone will limit the young forward minutes. However, do not make a mistake, Denver needs Porter to add an extra dimension in its game with his athleticism and shot-making ability.
