Michael Porter Jr. (heel) downgraded for Denver on Monday

Denver Nuggets power forward Michael Porter Jr. (left heel contusion) is doubtful to play Monday versus the Houston Rockets.

What It Means:

Porter has been downgraded from questionable and is heading for a third straight absence. Bruce Brown Jr. will likely make another start on Monday for Denver. He had a triple-double last Wednesday and added four steals, but Brown was quieter in the most recent game (8 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists).

numberFire's models project Brown for 34.0 minutes and 31.4 FanDuel points on Monday, and he has a $5,700 salary on the Main slate. Per our NBA Heat Map, the Nuggets’ implied total (120.0) is second-highest out of 20 active teams today.
