Otto Porter strengthened his bid for Most Improved Player on Thursday in a win over the Pacers, scoring 25 points with eight rebounds, two assists and six 3-pointers.
He has a stranglehold with his league-leading 46.5 3-point percentage on the season. When taking into account his lack of turnovers, Porter has actually been one of the most efficient shooters in recent memory. In fact, he is on pace to be the only player in the history of the NBA to average more than 2.0 treys, less than 1.0 turnovers, and turn in at least a 65.0 true shooting percentage. In standard leagues, the only Eastern Conference players with more total value are Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kyle Lowry and Isaiah Thomas. Porter has been a league-winning kind of fantasy draft pick.

Otto Porter scored 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting vs. the Thunder on Monday, adding 12 boards, two blocks and two triples in 34 minutes.

He bounced back nicely after he was limited to eight points vs. the Pacers on Friday due to foul trouble. Porter has played incredible all season, yet his right hip is still giving him problems which is why he frequently uses the exercise bike when he checks out of the game. "Just trying to stay loose. That's the only thing. I don't want to sit down for too long," Porter said. "Once I get back in I'm already kind of loose. Hopefully during this All-Star break I can get some rest and really let it heal a little bit staying off of it." He added that "It's just something you get used to," but he should benefit from a full week off starting this Friday. This shouldn't be a real concern for his owners going forward.

Otto Porter was held to eight points in 25 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

He picked up five fouls, so don't panic about the low minutes. Porter shot 3-of-7 from the field and added four boards, one assist, two steals and one triple. The impending free agent is expected to draw significant interest around the NBA this summer including from the Nets, but the Wizards would be crazy to not match any offer that comes his way. Expect a better performance on Monday vs. the Thunder.
Feb 11 - 12:33 AM

Otto Porter picked up his ninth double-double of the season on Wednesday with 20 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and three 3-pointers.

Marcin Gortat also had a strong double-double with 14 points and 14 boards, helping Washington escape with a narrow win in overtime. Porter turned the ball over just once in 39 minutes and he continues to do everything for the Wizards as an X-factor at both ends of the court. It's that versatility that's helped him surge into early-round fantasy value this year.
Feb 8 - 11:33 PM

Otto Porter scored 25 points on 8-of-11 from the field with six rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers against the Cavs on Monday.

He just cannot be left open and needed just seven attempts to get to five makes. Before tonight, Porter had a 71.1 effective field goal percentage on 3-pointers with a defender at least four feet away, so teams really need to do a better job of getting a body on him. He continues to lead the NBA in 3-point percentage and has been a top-15 player in standard leagues this season. He looks like a difference-making fantasy pick.
Feb 6 - 10:56 PM

Otto Porter scored 11 points with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday.

He's not going to be in the 3-point contest, which is a shame for the NBA's leader in 3-point percentage. John Wall said he was "shocked" that Porter isn't out there to compete, but Porter has said he's a better in-game shooter. Porter has been a fantasy All-Star in standard leagues as the Eastern Conference's sixth-best player in standard leagues so far this season. He's been amazing.
Feb 2 - 10:51 PM

Otto Porter was quiet against the Knicks on Tuesday, scoring 10 points on 5-of-9 shooting with six boards, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes.

He missed all three of his attempts from beyond the arc, making this is his first game without a triple since Jan. 14. Porter didn't look healthy tonight and Wizards reporter J. Michael believes his troublesome right hip could've been the reason why -- Porter only attempted two shots in the first half and was using the exercise bike to stay warm every time he subbed out of the game. We'll look for updates prior to Thursday's game vs. the Lakers, but for now his owners can expect to have him in their lineups.
Jan 31 - 10:40 PM

Re-signing Otto Porter, who can become a restricted free agent in July, will be the Wizards top priority this summer.

The 23-year old Porter has made "the leap" this season. Porter, a terrific wing defender, is averaging career-highs across the board, while also leading the entire league in 3-point accuracy (46.8 percent). If the Wiz don't lock up Porter before he hits free agency, there will be plenty of team willing to throw major money at him. In fact, it has already been reported that the Nets would be willing to make a max offer, which would be approximately $105 million over four years. Bringing back Porter at big money will push the Wiz very close to luxury tax land, but they simply can't afford to let Porter walk away and get nothing in return.
Jan 31 - 10:09 AM

Otto Porter continued his breakout season against the Hawks on Friday, scoring 21 points with 11 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and five 3-pointers.

He only need seven attempts to pad his lead for the NBA's 3-point percentage shooting crown, making an impressive 46.5 percent from deep on the year. Porter said he doesn't mind not playing in the 3-point contest over the All-Star break because he's an in-game shooter. He's a catch-and-shoot guy on treys at a whopping 93.7 percent of the time this season, and he's also been open on 94.4 percent of all his treys. If you want to make a case for how awesome John Wall has been, this is a great point to make. Otto is a top-15 player this year.
Jan 28 - 3:25 AM

Otto Porter hit just 2-of-4 shots for six points, four rebounds and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes on Tuesday.

He had scored in double figures in 11 straight games and the minutes were there tonight, so this is more of a fluke than anything else. He should bounce back Friday at Atlanta. Despite tonight's dud, he's still averaging 15.8 points, 7.4 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 3.6 3-pointers over his last five games, while shooting 53 percent. Patience, please.
Jan 25 - 2:59 AM

Otto Porter hit 6-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers on his way to 14 points, 13 rebounds and two assists in Monday's 109-99 win over the Hornets.

Porter hit just 4-of-13 shots for 11 points on Saturday, but bounced back tonight, and is now averaging 17 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 3.8 3-pointers on 52 percent shooting over his last five games. This was his seventh double-double of the season, but first in the month of January. We're witnessing his coming out party this season and he should be starting in all formats.
Jan 23 - 9:47 PM

Otto Porter scored 11 points with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.

He couldn't stay hot forever after making 12 treys in his last two games combined. Besides his insane efficiency lately, Porter has been extremely consistent with steals. He's had at least one for every game this season, averaging 34 minutes in that span. He probably won't be a top-15 player, but Porter should be an early-round guy going forward.
Jan 21 - 9:10 PM

Otto Porter matched his career-high six 3-pointers against the Knicks on Thursday, scoring 23 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

It didn't take long for him to match his career high from Wednesday, and he's the first Wizards player ever to make six treys in back-to-back games. Porter's incredible shooting lately has moved him up to the No. 2 player in 3-point percentage this season, trailing Joe Ingles by just 0.2 percent. Porter has arguably been the most efficient player lately, posting an otherworldly 70.0 true shooting percentage over his last 14. He now has top-15 value in standard leagues.
Jan 19 - 11:12 PM

Otto Porter made a career-high six 3-pointers to help him get to 25 points against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, one steal and no turnovers in 34 minutes.

The 3-pointers have been a trend for Porter lately. In his last 13 games, he's averaged 2.7 treys, 16.4 points, 5.2 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks on 55.9 percent from the field -- good for a 69.0 true shooting percentage. He's been a top-15 player in that span and on the season overall, too. Porter is arguably the best value pick in fantasy this season.
Jan 18 - 10:43 PM

Otto Porter looked 100 percent in a win over the Blazers on Monday, scoring 12 points with four rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

The hip strain from over the weekend clearly didn't bother him in this easy win. Porter has been arguably the best fantasy draft pick this season and is in the mix for Most Improved Player.
