Otto Porter is undergoing a small procedure on his left leg on Friday to address a build up of blood flow in the area of his leg contusion, according to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.
He is not going to play again in the Toronto series and he would likely be out beyond that in the event the Wizards pull off an upset. Porter's leg injury has clearly bothered him for multiple games and the medical staff has been monitoring him. With him out, Kelly Oubre will be the next man up as a chalky DFS play while Mike Scott should also see added run. Apr 27 - 3:16 PM

Otto Porter (left lower leg contusion) did not participate in shootaround and remains questionable for Game 6 on Friday.

Porter has played in each of the first five games of this series, but is clearly less than 100 percent healthy. He is averaging 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 31.6 minutes. We will likely get a final confirmation on his status at approximately 5:30 pm, when coach Scott Brooks addresses the pregame media. If Porter is ruled out or limited, Kelly Oubre Jr. will soak up additional minutes.

Otto Porter (left lower leg contusion/soreness) is listed as questionable for Game 6 on Friday.

This is the third Otto update today with the first saying he had a strain and the second saying he was playing through a contusion. He looked a step slow in Game 5 and at times he's been grabbing at his leg for parts of this series, so it's likely a lingering issue. Considering it's an elimination game, he'll likely be giving it a try, but he will likely be limited. If Otto is limited, Kelly Oubre will benefit most.

Otto Porter (leg) has played with a bone contusion in his left leg that has been monitored by the Wizards’ medical staff, according to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.

Coach Scott Brooks said he's going to hope for the best that Porter will be out there for Game 6. "I know he’s banged up. That’s all I know as of right now," Brooks said. Porter has been a shell of himself lately, especially in his 31 minutes in Game 5. If he's limited, Kelly Oubre would be an easy call for DFS while Mike Scott would also benefit.
Apr 26 - 4:28 PM

Otto Porter's (leg) status for Game 6 is up in the air.

He's been dealing with this right lower leg strain since the end of the regular season and hasn't looked healthy during the playoffs -- he's averaging just 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.2 steals and 1.0 triples on 48.8% shooting. Coach Scott Brooks made it sound like there's a chance Porter wouldn't play, but we'd expect him to tough it out with Washington's season on the line. For what it's worth, he's not listed on the injury report.
Apr 26 - 12:25 PM

Otto Porter scored nine points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

He didn't look healthy in the first quarter and was limping in the first couple minutes. Porter wasn't looking to get shots like he had been for most of the last two months, but maybe that'll change as the series goes on. With John Wall out there, Porter's offensive upside isn't nearly as high.
Apr 14 - 8:07 PM

Otto Porter (calf) will play on Saturday against the Raptors.

He was called a game-time decision earlier today, but he gets the green light before the Wizards complete warmups. His calf strain from Tuesday was never considered serious, but the Wizards opted to hold him out on Wednesday. Porter will need a big series and he's likely going to have to guard DeMar DeRozan a bunch.
Apr 14 - 4:04 PM

Otto Porter (calf) is a game-time decision for Saturday against the Raptors.

After missing Wednesday, he is reportedly feeling better and did go through some practice on Friday. Porter has dealt with some leg injuries throughout his career, but this new issue doesn't sound serious. If he is limited, that will put even more pressure on Kelly Oubre.
Apr 14 - 2:15 PM

Otto Porter (mild right calf strain) went through "some of practice" on Friday and is listed as questionable for Saturday's Game 1 vs. Toronto.

Porter initially injured his calf in the first half of Tuesday's game vs. Boston. He didn't play in the second half and was ruled out of Wednesday's season finale. That fact that he was able to participate in portions of practice is encouraging, but the fact that he remains questionable is worrisome. We should expect an update on his status after Saturday's shootaround. The Wizards need him healthy if they hope to knock off the top-seeded Raptors. If Porter is unable to play, Kelly Oubre would likely draw the start in his place.
Apr 13 - 12:36 PM

Otto Porter (mild right calf strain) has been ruled out for Wednesday's season finale.

Kelly Oubre should be very busy without Porter, who we're considering day-to-day. Scott Brooks was asked if Porter would be playing if this were the postseason, but he said he wasn't sure and "hasn’t played that hypothetical game." The Wizards can only hope that Porter makes a speedy recovery with the postseason looming.
Apr 11 - 6:41 PM

Otto Porter (right lower leg strain) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. Boston.

He didn't come out for the second half and now we know why. There's no word on the severity, but this is a tough blow with playoffs looming. Kelly Oubre started the second half and will have a significant workload while Porter is on the shelf. Porter finished with 12 points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two triples.
Apr 10 - 9:37 PM

Otto Porter scored 18 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and two turnovers in 30 minutes Thursday vs. Cleveland.

This loss will sting for the Wizards, who blew a 17-point, fourth-quarter lead. However, Porter delivered an efficient, well-rounded line as usual. The Wizards play the second night of a back-to-back vs. Atlanta on Friday.
Apr 6 - 12:31 AM

Otto Porter returned from a mild ankle sprain with 26 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and six 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

One of the biggest questions last year was whether or not Porter's breakout last year was for real. Well, it is. With his most recent uptick, it'll be interesting to see what happens with Otto next to Wall because his usage rate drops from 20.7 without Wall while it's just 15.5 with him. He needs more shots and he's shaping up to be a top-30 pick in drafts next year.
Mar 31 - 6:29 PM

Otto Porter Jr. (ankle) will play Saturday vs. the Hornets.

Otto tweaked his ankle in Thursday's loss to the Pistons and was unable to return to the game. There was concern he might miss time, but Porter will be back in action Saturday afternoon. Make sure he is in your fantasy lineup.
Mar 31 - 1:32 PM

Otto Porter Jr. (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday's game vs. the Hornets.

Great news for Porter owners, as Otto avoided a serious injury after spraining his right ankle on Thursday, and is on track to suit up Saturday afternoon. We should have confirmation at approximately 1:30 pm EST, when coach Scott Brooks addresses the media prior to the game. We'll also find out at that time if Porter is on any type of minutes restriction for Saturday's game.
