The Nuggets received some good and not so good news on their Monday injury report.

The Nuggets injury report came out on Monday afternoon and there is plenty to discuss ahead of Denver’s matchup against Portland on Tuesday. Michael Porter Jr. will miss his second consecutive game with a right ankle injury, while Paul Millsap (left knee contusion/sprain), Mason Plumlee (right cuboid injury), and Bol Bol (left foot: injury management) will also be held out.

Porter injured his ankle in the Nuggets big time victory over the Milwaukee Bucks last Friday night. It does not sound like it will be a long-term injury, which is a very good sign for Porter and the Nuggets moving forward.

On the bright side: Jamal Murray has been upgraded to questionable with a left ankle sprain. Murray has missed the Nuggets last 10 games after suffering the injury against the Charlotte Hornets back on January 15th.

Murray is averaging 17.6 points, 4.6 assists, and 4.1 rebounds per game in 40 games this season. The Nuggets have really missed Murray’s presence as Denver has gone just 6-4 with their starting point guard out of the lineup.
