Coach Scott Brooks is a "big believer" in Otto Porter's potential, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.
Interesting. Brooks got on fantasy owners' nerves at times for cutting down minutes on guys like Serge Ibaka. This is a good start for Porter after a mini-breakout in 2015-16. If he can be consistent and stay healthy, it's definitely possible for Porter to be an early-round value next season. Apr 22 - 2:05 PM

Otto Porter hurt his hamstring on Wednesday against the Hawks, checking out with five points, three rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block in 22 minutes.

That's not a good injury to end his season. Porter had a litany of hamstring problems in his rookie season dating back to summer league. Porter shouldn't have much competition for minutes next year with the Wizards not having their first-round pick unless they win a top-three pick in the lottery.
Apr 13 - 10:13 PM

Otto Porter scored 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers and two rebounds over 22 minutes.

Porter lost some minutes to Kelly Oubre and Jared Dudley in this one, but it would be surprising to see that develop into a trend. However, with Bradley Beal (pelvis) hitting the sidelines, the Wizards lost another creator, which could negatively impact Porter's value as he's not really capable of creating his own shot. With Beal and John Wall off the floor, Porter's usage rate dips to 13.4. It'll be interesting to see what he can do Monday vs. Brooklyn.
Apr 10 - 5:17 PM

Otto Porter scored 20 points in a loss to the Kings on Wednesday with one rebound, four assists and four 3-pointers.

The Kings get killed on the wings and Porter kept it going. He's really snapped out of his slump 10 games ago, averaging 14.1 points, 1.2 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.8 treys. Keep him rolling in all leagues.
Mar 31 - 12:41 AM

John Wall said Otto Porter needs to shoot the ball more.

Wall added he doesn't care about how many screens Porter has to go through. Porter has taken 15 shots from the field in each of his last two games and has at least eight in each of his last six -- he didn't have more than eight in his previous five. Porter is back to being a must-start player again.
Mar 23 - 4:53 PM

Otto Porter double-doubled in a win over the Hawks on Monday with 16 points, 10 boards, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

Porter finished 6-of-15 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line and didn't turn the ball over. He's a must-start player again and is averaging 15.2 points, 5.7 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.8 blocks, 2.0 steals and 2.2 3-pointers over his last six games. His brutal slump in early March is now a distant memory.
Mar 21 - 11:02 PM

Otto Porter turned in another nice outing on Saturday against the Knicks with 15 points, six rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He's finally out of his slump after a two-week run of killing his fantasy owners. In his last five games, Porter averaged 15.0 points, 4.8 boards, 1.6 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.2 treys on 50.9 percent from the field. He's back to being a must-start player again.
Mar 19 - 9:38 PM

Otto Porter scored 12 points with five rebounds, one assist, three steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

He might be back. Porter has turned in four productive games in a row and he looks like he can keep it going. Porter owners should have confidence in starting him every night now. He should be owned in all leagues.
Mar 17 - 11:11 PM

Otto Porter had 14 points, five rebounds, two assists, two blocks, one steal and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes, helping the Wizards defeat the Bulls in D.C. on Wednesday.

Porter has played at least 30 minutes in four straight games, and he helped himself to some easy buckets tonight thanks to sharp off-ball movement. The Wizards need to go on a prolonged run to keep their playoff hopes alive, so Porter should be in no danger of having his role reduced during the fantasy playoffs. Keep him locked and loaded.
Mar 16 - 11:10 PM

Otto Porter scored 11 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Pistons on Monday.

Baby steps. Porter busted out on Saturday and he had a decent line tonight. Alan Anderson (groin, ankle) could also be down for the count, so Porter should be able to keep his minutes closer to 30. If he's on the wire, it makes sense to add him now that he's turned in two decent games.
Mar 15 - 12:14 AM

Otto Porter was awesome vs. the Nuggets on Saturday, scoring 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting with two boards, one assist, five steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

Finally. Porter was in a major slump and was averaging 5.6 points, 3.0 boards, 0.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.4 3-pointers in 25.2 minutes in his previous five games, so hopefully he can build some momentum off this performance. Bradley Beal (hip) and Alan Anderson (ankle) were both out tonight, but it makes sense to pick up Porter if he was dropped in your league considering he has mid-round upside.
Mar 13 - 12:21 AM

Otto Porter scored six points with two rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 30 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

He's been horrible and not even the Bradley Beal (hip) injury could save him in his last two. In his last five games, Porter averaged just 5.6 points, 3.0 boards, 0.8 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.4 treys and no blocks on 38.7 percent from the field. It's one thing to slump in November, but it's another when it's crunch time in fantasy with a ton of pickups out there. Porter can be dropped for a hot free agent at this point.
Mar 12 - 1:07 AM

Otto Porter was held to seven points on 3-of-8 shooting vs. the Blazers on Tuesday, adding four boards, two steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

Bradley Beal (sprained pelvis) and Gary Neal (leg) were both out and Alan Anderson was ejected after just one minute, so it's a major disappointment that Porter couldn't produce tonight. He was consistently churning out mid-round value earlier in the season, but he's been awful over his last five games with averages of 6.4 points, 3.8 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.8 3-pointers in 24.4 minutes. He has enough upside to warrant a hold, but benching him in your fantasy lineup makes sense. For what it's worth, Porter didn't even touch the floor during overtime.
Mar 9 - 1:29 AM

Otto Porter scored six points with three rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 20 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

Well, he's in a slump again and this time he has a backup, Alan Anderson, taking his minutes. In his last three, Porter averaged just 5.0 points, 3.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.3 treys. With Bradley Beal (hip) going down, maybe that will give him some new life. He should still be owned unless there is a red-hot free agent out there.
Mar 5 - 10:37 PM

Otto Porter flopped on Wednesday with just five points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer, while turning the ball over three times in 18 minutes.

Alan Anderson was terrific in 21 minutes off the bench and Porter is averaging just 23.4 minutes over Washington's past five games. This doesn't bode well but Porter has too much upside to think about cutting, especially since the Wizards' rotations are still in flux with Markieff Morris joining the starting lineup. We'll unlock the panic room if he's similarly limited vs. Cleveland on Friday and Indiana on Saturday.
