Otto Porter started in place of Paul Pierce (toe) on Tuesday and had 10 points, five rebounds, one assist, a block and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.
Pierce is day-to-day and Porter wasn't exactly a beast tonight, so there's no reason to run out and pick Porter up. However, if Pierce is ever set to miss a lot of time, Porter would be someone to look at, after Rasual Butler. Dec 16 - 9:37 PM

Otto Porter (hamstring) returned to action on Tuesday with six points, three rebounds and two turnovers in 20 minutes off the Wizards' bench.

Porter sat out Saturday's game as a precaution but the injury was never considered serious and he looked fine tonight. As long as Paul Pierce is healthy, however, there's no reason to own Porter in typical fantasy formats.

Otto Porter (hamstring) went through shootaround on Tuesday and is a game-time decision to face the Hawks.

Going through shootaround usually means a player will go and he said he can "definitely" go, but Porter is a little different considering how he's aggravated his hamstrings before. Fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting much from him anyway now that Bradley Beal is back. Plus, Martell Webster (back) is getting closer, too.

Otto Porter (hamstring) is a game-time decision for Tuesday against the Hawks.

He was able to go through practice today and he's likely a little closer to probable. Porter had some major issues with is hamstrings in his first offseason in 2013, so the Wizards will likely be careful. Paul Pierce may get a few more minutes coming off a tremendous game on Saturday.
Nov 24 - 2:24 PM

Otto Porter (hamstring) was able to practice on Monday.

Porter was able to practice in full, so we expect him to be fully ready for the Wizards' next game on Tuesday. It's been an inconsistent season for Porter who has failed to live up to some of the preseason hype.
Nov 24 - 1:58 PM

Otto Porter said that his hamstring injury is minor and may be the result of dehydration and fatigue, but he remains questionable to practice on Monday.

"Just a lot of soreness [on Saturday]," said Porter. "I didn’t want to make it into a big injury ... I’ve been through injuries before so I knew from the start it wasn’t nothing serious." Paul Pierce and Rasual Butler both picked up more minutes in Porter's absence but it sounds like he may return to the lineup for Tuesday's home game.
Nov 23 - 9:11 AM

Otto Porter will not play on Saturday night due to a left hamstring tightness.

He actually had some major hamstring issues in 2013 summer league, but that was to his right hamstring. Paul Pierce will play a little more while the Wizards could also use Bradley Beal at small forward off the bench as well.
Nov 22 - 8:40 PM

Otto Porter played well in 25 minutes against the Raptors on Friday with 13 points, five rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer.

The Wizards were a lost cause on offense and no starter scored more than eight points. Porter has a couple bright spots on the season, but he'll likely need Paul Pierce to miss time in order to have reliable value in standard leagues.
Nov 8 - 2:37 AM

Otto Porter started the second half on Saturday against the Bucks, finishing with 21 points, five rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

He shot 7-of-11 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line to make this a fantastic fantasy line. Paul Pierce won't be suspended following his ejection on Saturday night, so it'll be up to coach Randy Wittman to play Porter at shooting guard for his fantasy value to rise. Unless you were already considering adding him, there's little reason to add him.
Nov 2 - 1:18 AM

Otto Porter committed five fouls in his 18 minutes of action against the Magic on Thursday with four points, one rebound, one assist and three steals.

He's had some fouling issues before and tonight was one of his worst. Porter has been playing well and he should normally get minutes in the mid 20s while Bradley Beal (wrist) is out. He should be better against the Bucks on Saturday.
Oct 30 - 10:31 PM

Otto Porter came off the bench for 13 points, four rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer on 4-of-7 shooting Wednesday.

Paul Pierce played well and Porter might have a tough time matching tonight's 24 minutes once Bradley Beal is healthy.
Oct 30 - 12:36 AM

Wizards beat writer J. Michael is projecting Otto Porter to come off the bench in Wednesday's season opener, with either Garrett Temple or Glen Rice Jr. starting at SG.

Rice is returning from a sore right ankle and Temple has more experience -- he even started 36 games during the 2012-13 season. Porter is coming off an impressive stretch in the preseason and he's the guy to target as a late-round fantasy option, in spite of his bench role.
Oct 29 - 5:34 PM

Otto Porter is looking to put last year's injury plagued rookie season behind him, and bounce-back during his sophomore campaign.

"I’m thankful to be playing at 100 percent and getting better," Porter said. "I’m trying to play hard each and every time I step onto the court and hopefully everything else will take care of itself." Porter could start off the year as the team's shooting guard with Bradley Beal on the shelf for the first month of the season. He's been practicing at the two-guard position during practices, and during the final five preseason games he averaged 14.8 points, 4.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.4 steals and 1.2 triples on 51.9 percent from the field. There's a lot of upside here, and Porter looks like someone worth taking a late-round flier on in standard leagues.
Oct 24 - 10:39 AM

Otto Porter kept his momentum going against the Knicks in his 31 minutes in the starting lineup on Wednesday, scoring 22 points on 9-of-15 from the field with two rebounds, one assist, three steals and four 3-pointers.

He is absolutely rolling right now. Over his last five games, Porter averaged 14.8 points, 4.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.4 steals and 1.2 triples on 51.9 percent from the field. If he can consistently make triples, Porter could really be in for a fantastic sophomore season. He's on the radar in standard leagues and should start off strong while Bradley Beal (wrist) is on the shelf.
Oct 22 - 10:06 PM

Otto Porter made 4-of-10 from the field on Monday for 12 points with three rebounds, three assists, two steals and two turnovers in 35 minutes.

He is living and dying by the mid-range jumper since Las Vegas, but the looks haven't been as clean as they were at Las Vegas Summer League. The Wizards are definitely going to use his length and they continue to play him a lot in the preseason. He's likely the beneficiary of the Brad Beal (wrist) injury, but he's more of a late-round pick in 14- and 16-team leagues.
