Otto Porter hit 3-of-4 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, three rebounds and nothing else in 27 minutes on Tuesday.
He was in foul trouble and the 27 minutes were his fewest since Nov. 21. There are no reports of an injury and this was simply a bad night for OPJ. He should bounce back in the next one, as tonight broke a streak of six straight games in double-digit scoring for the young Wizard. Dec 6 - 9:45 PM

Otto Porter scored 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting in Monday's win over the Nets.

Porter is having a remarkable season in Washington and he's averaging career-highs across the board. He added four rebounds, two assists, three steals and four triples with zero turnovers before fouling out in 36 minutes. Porter is returning first-round value in standard leagues, but he will have a hard time keeping that pace as he's shooting a blistering 53.5 percent from the field.
Dec 5 - 10:50 PM

Otto Porter hit 6-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, eight rebounds and three steals in Monday's overtime win against the Kings.

Porter was struggling a week ago, but has turned it on over his last three games, averaging 16 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over that stretch, knocking down 20-of-32 shots.
Nov 28 - 11:42 PM

Otto Porter made 6-of-8 from the field for 14 points with eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

Before the game, coach Scott Brooks said he wasn't going to limit Porter on the second half of a back-to-back because of a hip flareup earlier this week, so he wasn't kidding with the big playing time. Porter is just crushing both in reality and fantasy, 14.7 points, 8.1 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.7 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.4 treys on 51.4 percent from the field. He may not keep his top-20 value to date, but Porter has been extremely consistent this season.
Nov 26 - 9:38 PM

Otto Porter (hip) scored 19 points in 34 minutes against the Magic on Friday, adding seven rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers.

The performance and minutes are just what his owners wanted to see after missing some practice time due to a sore right hip. Porter is shaping up to be a terrific fantasy value on the year with his top-20 per game value. If you're going to sell high because of the hip scare, you should be asking for a lot.
Nov 25 - 10:04 PM

Otto Porter (hip) and Markieff Morris (ankle) are both in the starting lineup on Friday against the Magic.

Porter was probable for his minor right hip soreness. There was some slight concern due to how he had a right hip flexor injury last year, but he looks to be good to go. His minutes may be slightly down on a back-to-back, but get him in all season-long lineups.
Nov 25 - 6:56 PM

Otto Porter (hip) will play Friday night vs. the Magic.

Porter left Monday's game and did not practice on Tuesday due to inflammation in his right hip, but is ready to roll on Friday. "For sure, I always feel good to play," Porter told reporters Friday morning. This is great news for Porter owners who were nervous this week. Porter is enjoying a breakout season this year. He is currently averaging career-highs in points (14.5), rebounds (8.2) and steals (1.7).
Nov 25 - 12:26 PM

Otto Porter (hip) is probable to play on Friday against the Magic.

He left Monday's game and did not practice on Tuesday due to right hip inflammation. Porter actually felt an aggravation in it after the Saturday game, and said there was an issue with the connective tissue. He had suffered injuries to his right hip back in January of last season with that hip flexor issue costing him four games. Porter is off to a fantastic start, so hopefully he can avoid further damage.
Nov 24 - 5:47 PM

Otto Porter (right hip inflammation) did not practice on Tuesday.

Porter left the second half of Monday night's game due to the hip injury. Porter also missed time last season due to hip and thigh issues, although Washington is optimistic that he'll be able to play Friday after resting up Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Owners can expect to get more than a few updates in the intervening days leading up to Friday's tip.
Nov 22 - 1:57 PM

Otto Porter (right hip inflammation) did not return to Monday's game.

Porter missed a total of seven games in 2015-16 due to hip and thigh issues, but it's not clear if this is related. He finished with nine points, nine rebounds, two assists and two steals in 23 minutes. Kelly Oubre and Tomas Satoransky will both get a boost if Porter misses additional time.
Nov 21 - 8:48 PM

Otto Porter hit just 2-of-9 shots (both 3-pointers) for a season-low six points, seven rebounds and four steals in 37 minutes of Saturday's loss to the Heat.

Porter had been cooking and was averaging 16.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.7 3-pointers in November before tonight's dud. The minutes were there and he should pick things back up on Monday against the Suns.
Nov 19 - 10:20 PM

Otto Porter hit 8-of-14 shots and a season-high four 3-pointers on his way to 21 points, eight boards, two steals and a block in Thursday's win over the Knicks.

The fact he played so well with Bradley Beal back is encouraging to see and Porter's having a great season. He's only failed to hit double digits in scoring in two of his 11 games, and came into this one averaging 16.1 points, 9.1 rebounds, 1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers in November. And the points and threes are going up after this performance. He also saw some minutes at shooting guard tonight, which was a nice bonus.
Nov 17 - 9:59 PM

Otto Porter scored 11 points with five assists, eight rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes during a 105-94 loss to the Cavs on Friday.

He's taken a serious step this year, especially on the offensive end. Shortly after he was hired, coach Scott Brooks said Porter could break out, but he came out of nowhere in training camp and said the small forward spot was "up for grabs." Well, not anymore. Porter has an elite 65.6 true shooting percentage, averaging 16.1 points, 8.3 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.0 treys on the season. He has first-round value on the season and seems like a good bet to finish with at least early-mid round value.
Nov 12 - 12:47 AM

Otto Porter played a pristine game against the Celtics on Wednesday, scoring a career-high 34 points with 14 rebounds, four assists, three steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers.

The Wizards dropped a hammer on Boston to start the game, leading 34-8 after one quarter, with Porter's 13 points leading the way -- he finished 14-of-19 from the field and 3-of-3 at the line without a single turnover, rounding out a perfect roto line. Porter's across-the-board contributions rarely get headlines, but he's a steady mid-round fantasy value with considerable upside -- through Washington's first six games he was already returning top-40 value in 9-cat leagues.
Nov 9 - 9:35 PM

Otto Porter hit 6-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, eight rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block in a team-high 39 minutes on Monday.

After a dud last Friday, he's hot again, double-doubling on Saturday and filling the stat sheet on Monday. He's averaging 14.8 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.8 3-pointers over his last five games, and the fact he led the team in minutes tonight is promising.
