Michael Porter Jr. (ankle) doubtful for Nuggets versus Jazz

Denver Nuggets power forward Michael Porter Jr. (right ankle) is doubtful to play on Wednesday versus the Utah Jazz.

What It Means:

The Nuggets are going to be incredibly thin at the forward spot Wednesday, as Will Barton (knee) is questionable, Mason Plumlee (foot) and Paul Millsap (knee) are out, and Juan Hernangomez and Jarred Vanderbilt were traded away Tuesday night. Torrey Craig and Vlatko Cancar may both enter the starting lineup on Wednesday. Porter also missed the previous two contests.

Per numberFire's NBA Heat Map, the Nuggets-Jazz game has the second-lowest over/under (215.5 points) on Wednesday's nine-game slate. The Nuggets' implied total (103.25 points) is also second-lowest.
