More on this storyline

Barnes said he had no information to indicate that Michael Porter Jr. was involved in the crash. Coban came to Denver after committing to the University of Denver men’s basketball program and played in 28 games as a freshman last season. He tore an anterior cruciate ligament during the offseason and has been unable to practice with the team this year because of the injury. Michael Porter Jr. was held out of Sunday night’s game against Oklahoma City due to “personal reasons.” -Street Denver Post / January 22, 2023
