Nuggets’ Michael Porter Jr. in “really good place” following back surgery

DALLAS – Barely a month after back surgery, Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. is already getting shots up.

About an hour before Monday’s game against the Mavericks, Porter took numerous jumpers inside the 3-point line, draining most of them. He was careful not to overextend himself.

In a brief interview with The Denver Post, Porter said he’s in a “really good place” in terms of his recovery. His mood, being back around teammates and coaches, reflected it.

Porter, who underwent back surgery on Dec. 1, accompanied the team on their two-game road trip to Houston and Dallas.

There remains no timetable on his return following his third back surgery, but sources told The Post that Porter felt an immediate improvement as soon as the surgery was performed.
