ANALYSIS: Porter has reportedly been 'pain free' after undergoing a back procedure back in November, and could return to the Nuggets lineup as soon as March once he gets final clearance from doctors. The Nuggets could be the healthiest they've been all season once March comes around, with Porter Jr. inching closer towards a return and rumors swirling that Jamal Murray (knee) could also return to the lineup before the postseason.
Expect updates on Porter's progress within the next couple weeks.
