Michael Porter Jr. will return to the Denver Nuggets' lineup for Friday's meeting with the Phoenix Suns after missing the team's previous 10 games due to COVID-19 protocols, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

Porter last played on Dec. 29 against the Sacramento Kings before being ruled out for the Nuggets' next game due to health and safety protocols.

Porter was forced to quarantine for seven days before testing positive for COVID-19 the following week, prompting a second quarantine period.

The 22-year-old is averaging 19.5 points and 6.8 rebounds in four appearances for Mike Malone's Nuggets this season.
