I haven't seen any updates about him at all. Is he even practicing or doing drills? I saw somewhere that he might come back mid January but idk that that info is up to date.

talented guy but back injuries and nerve damage is hard to come back from. won't really know until summer league but probably a deep league watch or ambitious last round pick.

Bold prediction: He will win ROY over Zion (and Ben Simmons of course)

I don’t think you are far off.  I say Morant wins ROY but Porter will be top 5 for rookies.

Will definitely take a late round pick on him in our upcoming draft.

Impossible to not like his talent but no way he gets enough minutes and usage on Denver this year to get ROY level numbers. Hopefully next year he can start putting up numbers though pending that he's proven he can stay healthy for a full season.

You guys are expecting too much from this guy. 

He's gonna need 2-3 years to develop. He's talented but he won't make an immediate impact. 

You got too much competition in Denver. They are stacked on all positions. 

That being said, i drafted him with my 11th rookie pick last year in a very competitive 20x20 dynasty league.

I mean one can hope.

They had so many injuries last year, so opportunities can happen.

His family has a history of athletic injuries unfortunately.

He has a great high school pedigree and size/skills.  I was really hoping to see him play in summer league to see if the hype was justified after all the injuries and being out of basketball for such a long time. Hopefully the injury is minor and he can be ready for preseason. As far as where to draft him in a redraft, I would like to see him play a game in preseason first. In dynasty, yes he should be rostered.
