As expected, Michael Porter Jr. will be in the starting lineup for Monday's Game 1 against the Jazz.
The Nuggets are still without Gary Harris (hip) and Will Barton (knee), so Porter will get to keep the starting spot that he earned in Denver's seeding games. He was fantastic throughout, returning first-round fantasy numbers in that small sample, and figures to be a popular DFS player for as long as he's starting. There may be some struggles as Porter encounters a playoff defense for the first time in his young career but the Nuggets will ask him to sink or swim given their other injuries.
