Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. had spine surgery at Dallas-based Carrell Clinic, the team said Dec. 1.

Andrew Dossett, MD, performed lumbar spine surgery on the 23-year-old player. Mr. Porter will be out indefinitely, the team said.

Mr. Porter has had two back surgeries since the Nuggets drafted him in 2018, according to a Dec. 1 report in The Denver Post. He has been playing injured all season before hurting his back to a greater degree in a Nov. 6 game.
