Otto Porter didn't skip a beat on Friday, making all seven attempts from the field for 16 points with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.
He missed two games due to bruised ribs and was truly awesome for this game. There was some talk of the SF starting job being "up for grabs" earlier this month, but that is firmly in Porter's grasp now. Chances are anyone who drafted in the past week stole Otto, but now he should cost you a mid-round pick in standard drafts. Oct 21 - 9:43 PM

John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter (ribs), Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat will start on Friday.

Due to the injuries to Markieff Morris (foot), Otto Porter (ribs) and John Wall (knees), the Wizards finally get their starters out there for a preseason game. There is some talk of Kelly Oubre taking Porter's spot, but that seems even more unlikely now. Porter is a fine pick in the later rounds.

Otto Porter (ribs) and Jason Smith (oblique) will miss Tuesday's preseason game against the Cavs.

It's just a precautionary absence for Porter, so he should be just fine for opening night. Scott Brooks seems to really like him, so he should be able to improve upon last year's averages of 11.6 points, 5.2 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.3 treys per contest. He's a solid mid-round target. Smith, however, will have zero fantasy value this season operating as the third-string center in Washington.

Otto Porter (ribs) was present at shootaround on Tuesday.

The Wizards play their final preseason game on Tuesday against the Cavs, but Porter will be held out for precautionary reasons. The 23-year-old should be ready to roll for the regular season and make for a solid late middle round target after averaging 11.6 points, 5.2 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.3 triples last season.

Otto Porter (ribs) will not play on Saturday vs. the Kings.

He is traveling with the team and the injury isn't believed to be serious. It's the preseason, so nobody should be shocked that the Wizards are playing it safe. Kelly Oubre looks like the real deal and will get a chance to impress again on Saturday.

Otto Porter (ribs) traveled with the Wizards for Saturday's game against the Kings.

The game is at University of Kentucky and it sounds like Porter could be suiting up for that one. He suffered bruised ribs after a collison with Joel Embiid on Thursday and did not return. This injury shouldn't affect his fantasy value as a late middle round target. If he's out, that will be more time for Kelly Oubre.
Oct 14 - 7:43 PM

Otto Porter suffered bruised ribs on Thursday night and will not return.

He got into a collison with Joel Embiid in the second quarter and did not start the third quarter. Kelly Oubre started the third in his place and should see more burn tonight. While Porter hasn't locked up his starting job yet, he's still the heavy favorite to start at the three and see a good chunk of time at the four. Assuming he didn't suffer any structural damage to his ribs, Porter is a sneaky pick to take in the late middle rounds.
Oct 13 - 8:48 PM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks suggested that Otto Porter could develop into a stretch-PF role, which Porter was quick to embrace.

"[Porter's] evolution as a player, he's going to have to learn how to play some fours and using his length and his quickness guarding bigger fours," Brooks said. Porter unabashedly supported the notion, saying, "[Playing power forward] puts a lot of pressure on the defense to react to you. That's where I feel really comfortable playing that position." This should only help his fantasy outlook, and we might get a long look at Porter-as-PF if Markieff Morris' foot injury costs him any preseason games.
Oct 13 - 1:05 AM

Otto Porter scored nine points with six rebounds, one assist, two steals and one turnover in 27 minutes against the Knicks on Monday.

The stat line doesn't jump out, but Porter played well on defense and seemed to be more comfortable out there. He's still the heavy favorite to start at small forward with Kelly Oubre behind him. The push from Oubre makes Porter a bit of a value in the later middle rounds.
Oct 10 - 11:25 PM

Otto Porter scored eight points with six rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

About two weeks ago, it looked like Porter's starting job was set in stone. Now, coach Scott Brooks said it's going to be a competition between Porter and Kelly Oubre. With Oubre being arguably the best Wizard so far this month, this position battle is something to watch. That said, Porter is a really great fit in his role for his minutes at the three and four. The competition may actually make Otto a bit of a bargain in the later middle rounds now.
Oct 6 - 11:54 PM

Otto Porter started at SF on Tuesday but he was quiet in 17 minutes, scoring five points on 2-of-6 shooting with three boards, one steal and one turnover.

Meanwhile, fellow swingman Kelly Oubre got going in the second half to finish with 16 points in 25 minutes. Scott Brooks said the starting SF job is open for competition this preseason, but Porter is favored to keep his job and he remains a mid-round target until further notice.
Oct 4 - 9:59 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said the veterans are not likely to play more than 20 minutes on Tuesday against the Heat.

John Wall (knees) is out, so Trey Burke is probably the only starter set for more than 20 minutes. Otto Porter could get more than 20, especially since he might have to keep Kelly Oubre at bay. Expect to see a lot out of the young guys.
Oct 3 - 4:04 PM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said that the starting SF position is "up for grabs."

While Otto Porter is the heavy favorite to start, Brooks isn't just going to hand him the job with Kelly Oubre ready to take on a larger role. Brooks has said in the past that he's a "big believer" in Porter, so this could simply just be motivation. Porter is still a solid mid-round pick after averaging 11.6 points, 5.2 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.3 triples last season.
Sep 26 - 11:04 AM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said there will be "healthy competition" at small forward this season.

The suggestion is that Otto Porter might not be a lock over Kelly Oubre for the starting SF job, even though he's coming off a strong season. "We also have some younger players who are coming into camp," Brooks said. "I’d like [Porter and Oubre] to take a step in the right direction and they should." Porter has the edge and he managed top-75 value in just 30.3 minutes last year (top-50 in 9-cat), so fantasy owners shouldn't be scared off him in the middle rounds.
Sep 21 - 11:36 PM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks believes Otto Porter will be a premier defensive wing.

It's unclear how quickly Brooks believes Porter can develop into this role, but obviously the new lead man is intrigued with his starting small forward. The potential exists for the Georgetown alum to be productive across the stat sheet, but he's going to have competition for minutes and for touches under a new coaching staff.
