Otto Porter said he's been out of rhythm since returning from the one-game absence last week.
"I know I've only been out a [game], but I'm trying to slowly get back mentally and physically to where I was," Porter said. "I'm just trying to get back into rhythm." Over the past seven games, Porter has averaged just 8.9 points per game on 37.7% shooting, so he's certainly struggling at the moment. Head coach Scott Brooks hinted that he'll run some more plays for Porter, but also said that Porter will need to be more aggressive in seeking out his own shot. Jan 17 - 8:49 AM

Otto Porter's shooting woes continued on Monday, as he went just 3-of-8 from the field on his way to eight points, six boards, two assists, three steals and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

Porter's jumper has been off in January, as he's been connecting on just 37.9 percent of his field goal attempts, and this was his third game in a row without a single 3-pointer. He's also seen his usage rate dip to just 14.5 over the past seven games, so there's no denying that he's in a dreadful cold streak, but at least he's been coming through with the defensive stats to keep his value afloat. Porter should be able to right the ship soon, so now looks like a good buy-low opportunity.
Jan 15 - 5:20 PM

Otto Porter Jr. (hip) was able to play 39 minutes against the Magic on Friday, finishing with nine points on 4-of-13 shooting.

Fantasy owners won't be terribly pleased with the off shooting night, and the fact he chipped in with just two assists, two rebounds and two steals. However, it was nice to see him roll up 39 minutes, playing with no restrictions after just returning from a hip injury on Wednesday. It will be interesting to see how the team handles him on Saturday night in the second end of a back-to-back against the visiting Nets.
Jan 12 - 11:11 PM

Otto Porter (hip) won't be on any sort of minutes limit for Friday's game against the Magic.

Porter looked fine in his return from a one-game absence on Wednesday, tallying 14 points, six boards, three steals, two triples and one assist in 37 minutes of action, and he should see a similar workload tonight. Get him active.
Jan 12 - 5:24 PM

Otto Porter (hip, back) returned to action on Wednesday with 14 points (5-of-9 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), six rebounds, three steals, two 3-pointers and one assist in 37 minutes.

Hip soreness has been an ongoing issue for Porter, but the Wizards don't sound overly concerned. "There’s no question with Otto, we’re always working on his flexibility and his core so he can play like last year [when] he played most of the season," said coach Scott Brooks. "Hopefully this season he’ll do the same." There's no reason to think he'll miss more games imminently, so make sure he's locked into active lineups.
Jan 10 - 11:59 PM

Coach Scott Brooks confirmed that Otto Porter (hip, back) will start Wednesday vs. the Jazz and play "about 30 minutes."

Porter is back after missing just one game. He's a risky play in DFS, but should be locked and loaded in daily leagues. Kelly Oubre will get bumped back to the bench.
Jan 10 - 5:24 PM

Otto Porter (hip, back) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

Scott Brooks already said on Tuesday that Porter would be back out there for Wednesday's game, so the probable tag is just a formality and owners can go ahead and get him active following his one-game stint on the sidelines. With Porter back, Kelly Oubre will return to the bench and his value will take a bit of a hit with the demotion to the second unit.
Jan 10 - 2:03 PM

Scott Brooks said that Otto Porter (hip, back) will be "good to go" for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

Porter was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, so he'll get back out there on Wednesday following a one-game stint on the sidelines. Because he only missed one game, he shouldn't be dealing with any sort of minutes limit, so owners can deploy him with confidence tomorrow. With Porter back in action, Kelly Oubre will return to the second unit and his value will take a slight hit.
Jan 9 - 2:19 PM

Otto Porter (right hip strain) is listed as questionable in the game notes for Wednesday's matchup vs. Utah.

Porter was held out of Saturday's loss to the Bucks after his back tightened up in Friday's win over Memphis. Encouragingly, Porter was able to participate in "some portions" of practice on Monday. We should have another update, and a better idea of his status going forward, after Tuesday's practice. If Porter is unable to play, Kelly Oubre will likely draw another start.
Jan 9 - 10:45 AM

Otto Porter (back, hip) participated in "some portions" of practice on Monday according to coach Scott Brooks.

His status for Wednesday's game is to be determined, but this is still a good sign. If Porter can't go after a couple days of rest, Kelly Oubre will draw another start and will be a solid punt in DFS and streaming option in standard leagues. Oubre had 14 points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two triples against the Bucks on Saturday.
Jan 8 - 1:52 PM

Otto Porter (back, hip) will not play and Kelly Oubre will start against the Bucks on Saturday.

On the second night of a back-to-back set, Porter is going to sit this one out. It's somewhat encouraging that he did not get ruled out right away, so maybe he only needs to miss one game after his back tightened up. Oubre is a possible pickup if you need a short-term boost while Markieff Morris also benefits.
Jan 6 - 7:08 PM

Otto Porter (back, hip) is a game-time decision against the Bucks on Saturday.

He had his back tighten up on him on Friday night and did not play in the fourth quarter. If Porter can't go, it'll be Kelly Oubre in the first unit today. Oubre would be a DFS option without Otto, assuming he avoids foul trouble.
Jan 6 - 6:26 PM

Otto Porter (back) said "I don't know" when asked if he thought he would be able to play Saturday vs. Milwaukee.

Porter sat out the entire fourth quarter of the Wizards wins over the Grizzlies on Friday night after his back tightened up late in the third quarter. Porter finished with just two points in 27 minutes on Friday. With Saturday being the second night of a back-to-back, the Wiz may choose to err on the side of caution and rest him. We should get an update early on Saturday. If Porter can't play, Kelly Oubre would likely draw the start.
Jan 6 - 9:24 AM

Coach Scott Brooks said Otto Porter Jr. couldn’t finish the game on Friday because his back tightened up.

Well, maybe this is better news than the original hip strain diagnosis. Porter played 11 minutes in his third-quarter stint, so that may have been a factor here. For now, we'd consider him questionable at best for Saturday, which means it's probably Kelly Oubre time as a stream or in DFS.
Jan 6 - 12:50 AM

Otto Porter (hip strain) will not return to Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

He played 27 minutes in this game and it didn't appear like he had a bad injury. He checked out with 1:18 left in the third quarter after he played the rest of the third, so maybe that long stint affected him. He does have some hip issues in his career, so this will be something to watch. Kelly Oubre would be an interesting speculative add while Markieff Morris also would benefit.
