Otto Porter scored 10 points with six rebounds, one assist, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.
This type of stat line used to be peak Otto, but he's added so much more offense this season to help him truly break out as a Most Improved Player candidate. If Bojan Bogdanovic (back) does need to miss more games, Otto may look more like that second-round guy we saw before the break. Mar 25 - 10:36 PM

Date:

Otto Porter played just 21 minutes vs. the Celtics on Monday, scoring eight points on 4-of-8 shooting with three rebounds and two assists.

He missed all three of his 3-point attempts and really struggled in his matchup with Jae Crowder. Porter scored 14+ points in each of his previous three games with a total of six triples, so expect him to bounce back vs. the Hawks on Wednesday.
Mar 20 - 11:17 PM

Otto Porter scored 16 points with three rebounds, one assist, three steals and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He was off to a terrible start and didn't make his first field goal until 1:15 left in the second quarter. Porter's brief slump earlier this month was compounded by Bojan Bogdanovic being on fire, but now Porter is back with 36 minutes per game these days. He should be an early-round guy going forward.
Mar 18 - 9:59 PM

Otto Porter scored 14 points on 6-of-14 shooting in Friday's win over the Bulls.

He was attempting 4.4 treys per game prior to Monday, but didn't have a single attempt tonight. He did take a hard fall in the final moments of the game and appeared to hit his head on the court, but he stayed in the game and collected a clutch rebound on their final possession. He grabbed eight rebounds in 38 minutes and his owners should expect him to be fine on Saturday vs. the Hornets.
Mar 17 - 9:45 PM

Otto Porter scored 18 points with 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

Yeah, he's good. Porter finally had his first slump of the year earlier this week, but his coach had his back with some confident words and now the action is behind it with big minutes. Porter is right at the top of candidates for Most Improved Player and he's probably the best value pick in standard leagues.
Mar 12 - 3:21 AM

After a slumping out of the All-Star break, Otto Porter is heating up once again.

The Wiz traded for Bojan Bogdanovic at the deadline and it seemed to impact Porter negatively. In Washington's first seven games after the All-Star break, Porter averaged 8.3 points while shooting just 36.4 percent from the floor and 27.3 percent from 3-point territory. However, over his last two games, Porter has scored 40 points while shooting 65.4 percent from the floor and 66.7 percent from downtown. Porter is still on pace to lead the league in 3-point percentage and is returning top-60 overall value on the season.
Mar 11 - 9:50 AM

Otto Porter made 7-of-11 from the field for 18 points with six rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers against the Kings on Friday.

He's just too good to lose minutes. Porter brought it on the defensive end and he continues to be one of the most efficient shooters in the NBA -- he still leads the league in 3-point percentage. Porter probably won't be quite as good as he was in the first 55 games of the season, but he should still be an early-round guy.
Mar 11 - 2:02 AM

Otto Porter bounced back with 22 points, three rebounds, one assist, four steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Yeah, he got the Nuggets bump here, but he made 10-of-15 from the field in this win. Coach Scott Brooks said he's not worried about Porter's slump at all, so it didn't take long to prove him right. He may not have as high of a floor because a hot Bojan Bogdanovic could take his minutes, but Porter will be a must-start player the rest of the way.
Mar 9 - 2:34 AM

Coach Scott Brooks said Otto Porter will bounce back from his recent slump.

Brooks said there really is nothing to Porter's slump and it's just part of what players go through. This is compounded by Bojan Bogdanvic posting an absurd 83 true shooting percentage in his last six games, which has cost Porter about three minutes per game with only 8.5 points per game in that six-game span. Porter's fantasy owners should expect a good game soon, possibly coming tonight against the weak Denver defense.
Mar 8 - 3:36 PM

Otto Porter hit just 1-of-6 shots for two points, seven rebounds and a steal in 24 minutes of Tuesday's 131-127 win over the Suns.

Porter's had two really bad games in his last four, and has been pretty mediocre in his last seven. The arrival of Bojan Bogdanovic is not doing Porter (or Kelly Oubre) any favors, and it could be a rough ride the rest of the way for Porter, as long as BB is on fire. He's still clearly worth owning and had scored in double figures in his previous two games, but he doesn't look nearly as good as he did a month ago, averaging just 28.7 minutes in March after averaging 36.4 ticks in February. Bogdanovic is obviously having an impact on Porter.
Mar 8 - 12:10 AM

Otto Porter scored 18 points with eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

After a major drop in production, Porter was back at it for a career-high nine attempts from the line. Plus, his defense was terrific, which is what will keep him in the lineup. He is likely going to trend down from his awesome first half, but Porter could still be an early-round guy.
Mar 3 - 11:49 PM

Otto Porter didn't score in 19 minutes vs. the Raptors on Wednesday, adding just three rebounds and one steal in the Wizards' road win.

It's the first time Porter has been held scoreless in Mar. 18, 2015. Suffice to say this is a fluky performance and Porter just didn't have it tonight, whereas Bojan Bogdanovic was on fire off the bench. Otto's spoiled owners know better than to overreact to one quiet night, as he's likely to follow it up with an across-the-board gem. If Bogdanovic starts to routinely mess with Porter's playing time, we'll let you know.
Mar 1 - 10:47 PM

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.
Feb 16 - 10:04 PM

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.
Feb 13 - 10:50 PM

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.
