Before kicking off their weekends, several Denver Nuggets players went through a grueling workout session at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The high altitude (the amphitheatre sits at 6,450 feet above sea level at its peak height) and plethora of steep steps provide the players with a challenging training session. Monte Morris, Will Barton, Jarred Vanderbilt, Michael Porter Jr., Thomas Welsh and Brandon Goodwin participated in the Friday morning workout.
“He (Porter Jr.) is special for sure,” Nuggets guard Monte Morris added. “He can handle it, shoot it and he’s 6’11”. He’s a freak athlete. The best thing about Michael is that he feels he’s the best player on the court at all times, no matter who is out there. He carries that swagger about himself, so I feel it will be easy for him to adjust when he steps into the rotation because with that swagger, you will go out there and play confident.”
Storyline: Michael Porter Injury
We don’t know for certain if it’s this week. Or the next. But we do know this: The Nuggets (37-18 entering Monday night’s game) aren’t turning the screws on the rest of the Western Conference without big brother Isaiah pushing his younger teammates, be it in the locker room, in practice, or from his seat at the end of the bench. “We probably wouldn’t be this high along in the West if he wasn’t in our locker room,” point guard Monte Morris, one of the franchise’s — and the league’s — great narratives of 2019, said of Thomas. “(He’s) giving us tips on guys he played and just knowing how to pull through. I look up to him a lot, not just because he’s at my position, just what he’s been through and everything. So we’re looking forward to having him back. Everybody knows what he brings to the table, and when you add that on top of what we’re doing right now, we should be really, really good.”
