Porter Jr. available for medical exams in Chicago

Michael Porter Jr. is expected to be back with the Nuggets soon.

Michael Porter Jr. will be made available for an invitation-only medical examination on his surgically repaired back Friday in Chicago, his agent, Mark Bartelstein, informed teams via an email Thursday afternoon.

Porter, a freshman star out of the University of Missouri, was scheduled to hold a pro-day workout for teams Friday in Chicago. However, it was called off because of a strained hip. That raised reg flags if he would ever be made available for medical examinations.

“There doesn’t appear to be anything wrong with him right now,” one NBA executive told ESPN.com. “But a conservative doctor could still [be concerned about] what might happen down the road.”
