It was reported earlier today by Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports that Gary Harris, Michael Porter Jr., and Torrey Craig were not with the Nuggets in Orlando. Later this afternoon, we got even more clarity surrounding one of those players via his agent.
Porter's agent Mark Bartelstein confirmed with us on @SiriusXMNBA Porter has yet to report, but should be in Orlando within the next day or two. https://t.co/7PH2qk11xQ— Justin Termine (@TermineRadio) July 13, 2020
That is incredibly good news not just Porter, but the Nuggets as well. This timeline goes along with that of what we have seen regarding Nikola Jokic, which means the Nuggets could be gaining two massive reinforcements in the coming days.
It was also reported from Eric Woodyard of ESPN that Nuggets backup point guard Monte Morris is also not with the team and that he is waiting the results of his latest COVID-19 test.
Nuggets guard Monte Morris hasn’t entered the Orlando bubble yet, but a source confirmed he does plan on traveling to Orlando and joining the team once he’s cleared. His latest COVID-19 test is currently pending, but he’s asymptotic while waiting for the results.— Eric Woodyard (@E_Woodyard) July 13, 2020
The good news there is Morris is not only asymptotic, but he is planning on joining the team in Orlando once cleared.
