Bobby Portis will start at center on Thursday, replacing the injured Wendell Carter Jr.
Carter's sprained thumb isn't as serious as initially expected and he's hoping to play on Saturday, so this could be a short one-game thing for Portis. That said, his minutes are likely to tick up in the second half of the year and we like him as a late-round guy the rest of the way. Don't react too much one way or another to tonight's results, as he gets promoted for a date with Nikola Jokic. It's a tough spot to say the least.
