Can Michael Porter Jr. Help the Nuggets?

Michael Porter Jr. is a player the league is still trying to figure out. Porter is said to have tremendous potential, but due to circumstances, he has not had the chance to show it. At least, not until now. On Tuesday, Porter made his NBA debut, as the Denver Nuggets beat the Portland Trailblazers 105-94. Porter checked in five minutes of the third quarter, as he stepped on an NBA court for the first time in his career. And, he did not disappoint.

When Porter entered the game, he quickly scored, as he nailed a step-back jumper. Porter managed to finish the game with nine points and three rebounds.

For Porter, stepping on an NBA court has to feel good as he has waited nearly two years to do so. He missed the majority of the college season as he underwent back surgery. Porter was set to be a top pick, as he was ranked the No.1 player of his class, but his injury caused him to drop. He ended up going 14th in the 2018 draft, as the Denver Nuggets decided to take a chance.  Then Porter suffered another setback and had to get another surgery, causing him to miss all of last season. Now, he has an opportunity to show what he is capable of.

The Nuggets had an excellent season, as Porter sat on the bench. They finished the season with a record of 54-28. They reached the second round of the playoffs, where they lost to the Portland Trail Blazers. With Porter finally on the floor for the Nuggets, he just might be a player that can swing the Nuggets’ season.

The Nuggets are a talented team, and Porter could make them even better. If he stays healthy, Porter can definitely make an impact.
