Otto Porter (hip) will play on Monday vs. the Blazers.

He looked fine during the morning shootaround and he previously said that he was going to play. Porter has been a top-20 stud in standard leagues and his owners will want to make sure he's active, even he's not 100 percent.
Jan 16 - 12:24 PM

Otto Porter (hip) said he should be ready to play on Monday.

In case you missed it, he had a right hip strain today and did not return. Porter did have this injury before in this season and even before that, so the Wizards likely just played it safe. After all, they were up pretty big in the fourth quarter. For now, expect him to be a go against Portland.
Jan 14 - 11:11 PM

Otto Porter (hip) is questionable to return to Saturday's game due to a strained right hip.

He dealt with hip issues in November, so this is definitely something worth monitoring. Prior to exiting the game, he scored 10 points with six rebounds, one assists and one steal. Kelly Oubre and Sheldon McClellan will both get a boost if Porter misses any time. Oubre could be worth a look as a speculative add in competitive leagues.
Jan 14 - 9:58 PM

Otto Porter made 9-of-12 shots to finish Wednesday's game with 20 points, six rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers in a tough loss at Boston.

Porter added a pair of 3-pointers with zero turnovers in 37 minutes. This is a perfect encapsulation of his fantasy value -- efficient scoring, low turnovers, and across-the-board value including 3-pointers and defensive stats. He's a roto goldmine and isn't a slouch in points leagues, either. We're halfway through the season and there's no reason to think he'll regress.
Jan 11 - 11:13 PM

Otto Porter stuffed the stat sheet during Sunday's win over the Bucks, racking up 13 points, seven boards, seven assists, three 3-pointers, two blocks, one steal and two turnovers in 39 minutes.

This is just par for the course for one of fantasy basketball's most versatile forwards. In standard 9-cat leagues he's been a steady top-20 guy on the year with averages of 14.2 points, 6.6 boards, 1.4 dimes, 1.5 steals, 1.7 triples, 0.7 swats and 1.4 turnovers per game on 53.8 percent shooting, and he's showing absolutely no signs of slowing down.
Jan 8 - 4:49 PM

Otto Porter scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists, two blocks, one steal and three 3-pointers in Friday's win over the Wolves.

This was his third game of the season with 3+ 3-pointers, 2+ blocks and 1+ steals, and only Kristaps Porzingis (7), Kevin Durant (4) and DeMarcus Cousins (4) has accomplished that feat more. Porter shot 7-of-12 from the field which bumped him up to 54.0 percent on the season and turned the ball over a couple times. His FG percentage likely isn't sustainable since nearly half of his shot attempts are from deep, but Porter could be an early-round value the rest of the way.
Jan 6 - 11:03 PM

Otto Porter scored 13 points with four rebounds, three assists, three blocks, three steals and three triples in Tuesday's loss to the Mavericks.

Porter is now the only player in the NBA this season with multiple games (2) of 3+ blocks, 3+ steals and 3+ triples. He finished 5-of-11 from the field with one turnover in 37 minutes, and it's easy to see why he's returning top-20 value in standard leagues on the season.
Jan 3 - 11:33 PM

Otto Porter Jr. hit 4-of-12 shots for eight points, three rebounds, one assist and a steal in Monday's 101-91 loss to the Rockets, and also missed all five of his 3-point attempts.

Porter has been fading since his big 32-point, 13-rebound game a week ago tonight, scoring 22, 12 and eight points in his next three games. Tonight was the first time he struggled with his shot and even with the game included, he's still shooting 59 percent over his last five games. Look for him to bounce back on Tuesday against the lowly Mavericks.
Jan 2 - 11:08 PM

Brian Lewis of the New York Post said that the Wizards are expecting the Nets to pursue restricted free agent Otto Porter this summer.

Since Nets GM Sean Marks took over, he has made three significant offers to restricted free agents in Allen Crabbe, Tyler Johnson and Donatas Motiejunas, but he's currently 0-3. However, prying away Porter from the Wizards won't be any easier. Porter could command a max deal this summer based on his play and it looks like he's worth it, as he's averaging 14.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.7 triples on 54.8 percent shooting from the field.

Jan 1 - 9:51 AM

Otto Porter scored 22 points with one rebound and three 3-pointers against the Pacers on Wednesday.

After being shutout in the first quarter, his terrific offensive season continues with another strong finish. Porter ranks first among qualifiers with his 7.5 percent from the field improvement from last year. With Bradley Beal (ankle) getting hurt tonight and the Wizards likely to be careful, Porter does have a 5.1 percent usage bump with Beal off the court -- his efficiency takes a big hit, though. Regardless, one of the steals of the draft should have a big game on Friday against the Nets.

Otto Porter, who has been kind of quiet lately, hit 13-of-18 shots and a season-high five 3-pointers on his way to 32 points, 13 rebounds and a block in 41 minutes of Monday's win over the Bucks.

This was easily his best game since he dropped 34 points on the Celtics on Nov. 9 and he's scored between 17 and 32 points in three of his last four games. He's averaging 16.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.6 3-pointers on 60 percent shooting over his last five. He's been dealing with back spasms, but is clearly back to full strength. Make sure he's in your lineup going forward.

Otto Porter (back spasms) made 7-of-9 shots for 18 points on Friday, playing 25 minutes in a blowout loss in Milwaukee.

Porter has battled a few ailments this season, including back spasms, an inflamed hip, and a minor preseason rib injury, but he's yet to miss a game. He's been a top-50 value in nearly every fantasy format this season, and leaps into the second round in 9-cat thanks to terrific efficiency and a mere 0.8 turnovers per game.

Otto Porter (back spasms) will start Friday vs. the Bucks.

Porter sat out the second half of Wednesday's game with back trouble, but appears ready to roll on Friday. Porter, who has yet to miss a start all year, is enjoying a breakout season. He is averaging career-highs in points (13.4) rebounds (7.0), steals (1.7) and 3-pointers (1.5).
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 01:13:00 PM

Otto Porter (back spasms) is listed as questionable for Friday night against the Bucks.

He had back spasms in the first half and was not able to play in the second half. Porter had a heat pack on his back on Wednesday, so the team was likely holding out hope he could've returned. Sheldon McClellan got the start in the third quarter and is likely the favorite to start, assuming Porter can't go. Kelly Oubre would also benefit and be worth a stream or DFS punt.
