Otto Porter was terrific in Monday's Game 7 loss to Boston, scoring 20 points on 6-of-10 shooting in 39 minutes.
Not a bad way to bounce back after a scoreless dud in Game 6. Porter grabbed 10 rebounds with two assists, two steals and one block while going 8-of-8 from the line. He had a breakout 2016-17 season and has likely earned himself a max deal in restricted free agency this summer, posting averages of 13.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.9 treys on 51.6 percent shooting. The Wizards traded away their 2017 first-round pick to acquire Bojan Bogdanovic, so re-signing Porter will likely be their top priority during the offseason. May 15 - 11:48 PM

Otto Porter did not score in 36 minutes against the Celtics on Friday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

While the zero-point game looks bad, he played solid defense on Isaiah Thomas and did a solid job on the offensive glass with three key boards on that end with a 6.1 usage rate. The Celtics were hiding IT on Porter, so it was a little surprising coach Scott Brooks didn't use Porter more than tonight. That may change on Monday.
May 12 - 11:14 PM

Otto Porter took a shot to the face in Game 2 vs. Boston, but he finished with 13 points, nine rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

He shot 5-of-12 from the field and hit a huge 3-pointer to give the Wizards a two-point lead with just over 30 seconds remaining in regulation, but then Isaiah Thomas happened. Porter went to the locker room after taking a shot to the face and his nose was gushing blood, but he quickly returned and seemed fine (link below). He also took a hard fall in this game and said he's dealing with a sore elbow, but he's expected to be fine. After a quiet first-round series, Porter is averaging 14.5 points, 10.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.0 3-pointers in the first two games against Boston. A max contract offer is likely in his near future.
May 2 - 11:56 PM

Otto Porter posted a 16-point, 11-rebound double-double during Sunday’s Game 1 loss, to go with one 3-pointer, one assist and two steals in 41 minutes.

Porter did a nice job on the glass, and didn’t commit a single turnover but he also rarely took advantage of the fact that they had Isaiah Thomas as his primary defender for much of the game. If Markieff Morris (ankle) is forced to the sidelines in Game 2 on Tuesday, Porter will again be forced into heavy minutes.
Apr 30 - 4:35 PM

Otto Porter scored 17 points during Wednesday's 103-99 home victory, adding five rebounds, two steals, one assist, one block and zero turnovers in 31 minutes.

These are the type of efficient, all-around lines that made Porter a super-sleeper in roto leagues this season. He went 3-of-4 from the line tonight, with a pair of 3-pointers, and did most of his damage at the free throw line (9-of-10). He becomes just the third player since 1963 to score at least 17 points on four or fewer attempts in the playoffs, joining Doc Rivers and Jon Koncak.
Apr 26 - 9:30 PM

Otto Porter played through a neck injury in Game 4 vs. the Hawks on Monday and had his best game of the series with 13 points, four boards, one steal, two blocks and a triple in 39 minutes.

He didn't have any restrictions and finished 5-of-10 from the field in a whopping 39 minutes. Porter said he "pinched a nerve" when he was forced to leave Game 3 on Sunday and said he had a "tingling feeling" shooting down his arm, but he didn't miss any practice time and coach Scott Brooks said he was feeling "great" prior to tonight's game. Hopefully tonight's effort will get him going because he was averaging 7.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.7 3-pointers in his previous three contests.
Apr 24 - 11:14 PM

Otto Porter (neck) will play in Game 4 vs. the Hawks on Monday.

He was listed as probable after going through Sunday's practice, and the Wizards cleared him to play after he made it through the Monday morning shootaround. Porter has struggled during the postseason with averages of 7.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.7 3-pointers, but he hasn't really looked like himself for a couple months now.
Apr 24 - 11:41 AM

Otto Porter (neck) practiced on Sunday and he's being listed as probable for Monday's Game 4 in Atlanta.

Porter played through the neck strain on Saturday, and it looks like that trend will continue on Monday night, although he could be limited. We should have official confirmation on his status following Monday morning's shootaround.
Apr 23 - 2:24 PM

Otto Porter was dealing with a strained neck on Saturday, finishing with seven points, two rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

He was grimacing in the first half and the Wizards opted to hold him out for the final 18 minutes of this loss. Porter had a back problem earlier this month and it cost him two games, so perhaps this is related. If Porter can't go on Monday, Kelly Oubre and Bojan Bogdanovic will benefit the most.
Apr 22 - 8:32 PM

Otto Porter finished Wednesday's home victory with four points on 2-of-7 shooting, four rebounds, three steals and two assists in 23 minutes.

Porter was coming off a relatively quiet Game 1 and he rode a stationary bike while off the court tonight, suggesting that his recent back injury isn't completely behind him. Don't let the low scoring fool you, though. Porter's fingerprints were all over the Wizards' impressive win, and his low playing time was simply the result of early foul trouble.
Apr 19 - 10:13 PM

Otto Porter scored 10 points on 3-of-6 shooting (3-of-3 from the line) on Sunday, to go with nine rebounds, one 3-pointer, two assists and zero turnovers in 32 minutes.

While this wasn't the most impressive stat line from Porter, he displayed some excellent hustle throughout the contest, and he also had an impressive 23.3 defensive rebounding rate in this one. He should be able to produce a more diversified stat line during Game 2.
Apr 16 - 4:27 PM

Otto Porter (back) looked good in his return to action on Wednesday, making 4-of-8 shots to score 11 points before getting rested after 15 minutes.

Porter added six minutes during his short time on the court. He crushed his ADP in almost any league this year, and was particularly fantastic for 9-cat roto owners, contributing top-25 value on the strength of efficient scoring, low turnovers and all-around production. He's just 23 year old, so the best is yet to come.
Apr 12 - 11:15 PM

Otto Porter (back) will start and play limited minutes Wednesday vs. Miami.

Marcin Gortat will join Porter in the starting lineup tonight, but he'll also be playing limited minutes, so neither of these guys are all that attractive in daily leagues. Bojan Bogdanovic figures to see heavy minutes and a noticeable uptick in usage tonight sans John Wall (quad), Bradley Beal (rest) and Markieff Morris (rest), and Jason Smith should be earning extended minutes as well.

Otto Porter (back) will not play on Monday vs. the Pistons.

The Wizards are locked in as the No. 4 seed, so they will be cautious with Porter for the second game in a row. Kelly Oubre will start again in his place and had 12 points with six rebounds, one assist and one triple in 33 minutes on Saturday vs. the Heat. His ceiling should be a little higher with the Wizards limiting their starters minutes, though.
Apr 10 - 6:40 PM

Otto Porter (back) is a game-time call vs. the Pistons on Monday.

If he's able to play, Porter will see a limited workload along with the rest of the starters according to coach Scott Brooks. That's an indication that the Wizards want to be as fresh as possible for the postseason, so they may end up resting Porter again. If he's out, look for Kelly Oubre to draw another start -- Oubre scored 12 points with six rebounds, one assist and one triple in 33 minutes on Saturday vs. the Heat.
