Porter was taken by the Nuggets with the 14th overall pick in the draft last month. He was considered a top-five selection before a back injury that required surgery limited him to three games at Missouri in 2017-18.
The 6-foot-10 Porter was hampered by back and hip soreness during pre-draft workouts. He recently said he's ready to go.
Porter averaged 36.2 points and 13.6 rebounds his senior year at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle. He was the MVP of the McDonald's All-American Game and captured both the Naismith and Gatorade player of the year honors. The other players to accomplish that feat include Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Chris Webber and Alonzo Mourning.
