This report comes just over a week after the initial Chris Haynes report that Porter was not in Orlando along with Nuggets teammates Gary Harris and Torrey Craig. Then just the other day, Kendra Andrews of The Athletic broke the news that Harris and Craig were finally on their way to join the team in Orlando.
League sources also say that Torrey Craig is expected to arrive with Harris. They will be landing tonight, after which they will go into the mandated 48-hour quarantine period.— Kendra Andrews (@kendra__andrews) July 19, 2020
This is phenomenal news for the Nuggets as they gear up for their first official game back on August 1st. The Nuggets will have three scrimmages before then — starting today against Washington — in which their roster might be a little short handed.
Michael Malone mentioned the other day that Denver will likely only have nine players when they take on the Wizards today. The potential additions of Porter, Craig, and Harris in the coming days is going to be huge for the Nuggets and hopefully all three guys will be ready when the games really start to matter.
