Otto Porter had 18 points, 11 rebounds, three 3-pointers, three steals and one assist in 42 minutes vs. Boston on Wednesday.
He shot 5-of-12 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line. Porter's smart drive-and-dish to Jodie Meeks helped force the first overtime, and he used the extra periods to finish with his best overall fantasy line in March. In addition to multiple career-high averages this season, Porter has missed a mere three games due to injury. Mar 14 - 11:39 PM

Otto Porter played through a bruised right hip on his way to 19 points on 8-of-13 shots in a comfortable 116-97 win over the Pelicans on Friday.

He only played 26 minutes, but that was due to the lopsided score. Porter didn't look limited at all, grabbing seven rebounds, with one assist, one steal and two triples. It will be interesting to see how his hip responds in the morning, but he should be relatively fresh for Saturday's game vs. the Heat on the second night of a back-to-back.

Otto Porter (bruised right hip) will play vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

He tweaked his hip back on Tuesday, but he's had a few days off and was able to go through the morning shootaround. We haven't heard about any restrictions, but the Wizards will be watching him closely. He's safe to deploy in season-long leagues, while Kelly Oubre loses some streaming appeal.
Mar 9 - 6:40 PM

Otto Porter (bruised right hip) participated in shootaround and is a game-time decision for Friday's matchup against New Orleans.

Porter initially injured his hip in Tuesday's win over the Heat. He took a shot to the right hip in the fourth quarter, retreated to the locker room, and was unable to return. However, he avoided a serious injury, with the Wiz calling him day-to-day. The fact that he was able to partake in shootaround is a welcomed sign. We should have confirmation of his status for Friday's game at approximately 6:30 PM est, when coach Scott Brooks addresses the media pregame. Kelly Oubre and Markieff Morris will see extended minutes if Porter can't play.
Mar 9 - 1:03 PM

Otto Porter (bruised right hip) did not practice on Wednesday.

For what it's worth, Scott Brooks did say that Porter was feeling better on Wednesday, but with his health being absolutely crucial to the Wizards' postseason success, we'd expect Washington to be cautious with bringing him back. The Wizards have a Friday-Saturday back-to-back set coming up, so don't be surprised if he sits out at least one of those games. Kelly Oubre and Markieff Morris will pick up the majority of Porter's minutes if he can't play on Friday.
Mar 7 - 12:19 PM

Otto Porter has been diagnosed with a bruised right hip and is considered day-to-day.

He took a shot to the hip in the fourth quarter, went back to the locker and wasn't able to return in the overtime win vs. Miami on Tuesday. Any time we see Porter suffer a hip injury it's concerning because of his history with them, but hopefully he dodged a bullet here. For now, we'll consider him questionable for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans, but at least he gets a few days off. Kelly Oubre and Markieff Morris will pick up the slack if Porter can't go. Porter finished with 12 points, five rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and two triples.
Mar 6 - 10:13 PM

Otto Porter (hip) took a shot to his right hip and went back to the locker room.

He went down in obvious pain, but he briefly carried on before heading back to the locker room during a timeout. Porter has a long history with hip injuries, so hopefully it's nothing serious. He checked out in the fourth quarter, so we should have an update soon.
Mar 6 - 9:05 PM

Otto Porter ended up with 17 points, eight rebounds and four steals across 36 minutes in Sunday's 98-95 loss against the Pacers.

Porter will see as much playing time as he can handle with Kelly Oubre (foot) on the mend. Oubre's foot has reportedly been bothering him for several days, so he could be in line to miss more time. His loss is the gain of Porter and his fantasy owners. He and the Wizards will be back at it Tuesday night against the Heat for the start of a three-game week.
Mar 4 - 10:17 PM

Otto Porter scored 24 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

He is on fire since the break, averaging 20.0 points, 7.6 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.8 steals and 3.0 treys on 54.1 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line in those six games. Porter is still just 24 years old and the Wizards clearly are going to need him to play well if they want to advance in the postseason. His fantasy owners got a steal in drafts for the second year in a row.
Mar 2 - 11:12 PM

Otto Porter (right elbow) matched his season-high 29 points during a 109-101 loss to the Warriors on Wednesday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in just 32 minutes.

He had X-rays on his sore right elbow today and wasn't a lock to play, but obviously he was more than fine. Porter continues to be the guy that has seen a huge usage boost to help offset the loss of John Wall and it hasn't really hurt his efficiency either. Everything is working out just fine for the Wizards on their max deal so far and his fantasy owners are getting an early-round player for the second straight season.
Feb 28 - 11:09 PM

Otto Porter (elbow) is the starting lineup against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He only has a sore right elbow and X-rays were negative. Hopefully this doesn't interfere with his shot because he's taking a lot more of them these days. Porter is as must-start as it gets in standard leagues.
Feb 28 - 7:21 PM

Otto Porter (sore right elbow) had X-rays after the game on Tuesday, and is planning to play against the Warriors on Wednesday.

The results came back good on Porter's elbow and he should be all set for an important game. For now, expect him to be busy with his usage increase since John Wall went down.
Feb 28 - 6:21 PM

Otto Porter posted 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting, seven rebounds, three assists, three 3-pointers and two steals during Sunday's 109-94 win vs. the Sixers.

Porter was cruising as a top-40 value while John Wall was healthy, despite having a modest 17.6% usage rate -- the only player with higher fantasy value and lower usage rate in that span was Draymond Green. Ever since Wall had knee surgery, Porter has crept even higher, flirting with second-round value and a usage rate of 20.7%. He's not quite as valuable in points leagues, but you won't hear any owners complaining about Porter's return-on-investment this season.
Feb 25 - 11:54 PM

Otto Porter Jr. managed 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting in Friday's 122-105 home loss against Charlotte.

OPJ was a very effective 7-of-12 from the field, including 2-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, while adding six rebounds and four assists with no turnovers. He is riding high, posting double-digit fantasy totals in 12 straight outings, just two games shy of a career-high 14-game run of 10 or more points from March 12-April 6, 2016. Porter is averaging 17.8 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 3.3 APG and 1.3 SPG during the impressive 12-game run.
Feb 23 - 10:22 PM

Otto Porter had another strong game on Thursday with 27 points, 11 rebounds, two assists and two steals vs. the visiting Celtics, making 9-of-18 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs.

Porter logged 40 minutes tonight and he's really stepped up with John Wall (knee) out of commission. Washington's coaching staff has pressed Porter to be more aggressive, and with Wall out he's averaging 18.2 points (53.0% FGs, 88.2% FTs), 1.2 triples, 6.2 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.2 blocks. That's fantasy gold and he's been even better in 9-cat with just 1.0 turnovers during that stretch.
