Otto Porter turned it around during a 108-104 loss to the Hornets on Saturday, scoring 20 points with eight rebounds, four steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He scored 18 points in the first half thanks to some easy transition buckets. Porter was off to a terrible start in February, averaging 9.0 points, 2.3 boards, 1.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.7 treys. There was never a doubt he'd get it going and his owners can expect him to be a top 50-type player going forward.
Feb 6 - 9:34 PM

Otto Porter scored five points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer against the 76ers on Friday.

It hasn't been a good week for Porter. In his last five, he's averaged just 7.6 points, 2.4 boards, 0.2 blocks, 1.4 steals and 0.6 treys on 42.9 percent from the field. We saw Porter fall off a cliff earlier this year and he bounced back, so we're expecting him to do it again. Keep him on your roster in all leagues and consider him a buy-low guy if you don't have him.
Feb 5 - 11:36 PM

Otto Porter played 32 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday with nine points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and one turnover.

The Warriors ran him all over the court, but it didn't seem to affect him much tonight. Porter's troublesome hip has been his biggest bugaboo for his fantasy value, but he's posting fourth-round value on the year and in his last 10 active games.
Feb 3 - 10:50 PM

Otto Porter (hip, back) played 21 minutes in Monday's loss to the Thunder, scoring 13 points with one steal and one 3-pointer.

He shot 6-of-9 from the field, but he didn't record any boards, assists or blocks. Porter claims that he's 100 percent, but he played just 12 minutes in his last game and he didn't look great tonight either. The Wizards are probably just being cautious with Porter's minutes, so his owners should continue to stick with him.
Feb 1 - 11:02 PM

Otto Porter (hip, back) will play on Monday vs. the Thunder.

He was limited to just 12 minutes vs. the Rockets on Saturday, but the Wizards were likely just being cautious. Porter should see minutes closer to his normal workload on Monday, but owners in DFS should probably ignore him to be safe. He can be activated in season-long leagues, though.
Feb 1 - 6:44 PM

Otto Porter (hip, back) played just 12 minutes on Saturday vs. the Rockets, scoring nine points with three boards and one 3-pointer.

He played just six minutes in each half, and he was seen in the tunnel riding a stationary back in order to keep his back loose. The Wizards were probably just being cautious with him, but it's possible that these issues could potentially linger for a while. The Wizards are back in action on Monday vs. the Thunder, but they should have an update on Porter's status after Sunday's practice.
Jan 31 - 12:43 AM

Otto Porter is dealing with a back issue in addition to tightness in his right hip, but he will play on Saturday vs. the Rockets.

"It's more of my back," Porter said. "It's not really the hip. The back just locked up. That's all." The injuries are piling up for Porter, but he sounds determined to keep on playing and the Wizards can't really afford another injury right now. Porter is safe to plug into lineups, though.
Jan 30 - 1:56 PM

Otto Porter (hip) said that he will play on Saturday vs. the Rockets.

He was dealing with right hip tightness on Thursday, but he did go through the morning shootaround and it sounds like he is doing better. It's unclear if he will have any limitations, but it's safe to pencil Porter into all active lineups in season-long leagues.
Jan 30 - 12:58 PM

Otto Porter is dealing with right hip tightness on Thursday.

That's not good because he is just getting over a hip injury. Porter was very injury prone right out of the gate in his rookie Summer League and he's really having a tough time right now. He checked out with two points, two boards and no turnovers in 15 minutes on Thursday. If he's out, it'll be Kelly Oubre starting while several guards will take his minutes. Jared Dudley would be the best add.
Jan 28 - 9:13 PM

Otto Porter scored 15 points with eight boards, one assist, four steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes vs. the Raptors on Tuesday.

He has scored 15 points in two straight games since returning from his hip injury, and the Wizards will need him to be a primary weapon on offense with Bradley Beal out due to a concussion and broken nose. Porter has top-45 value on the season in standard leagues, so he needs to be in all active lineups.
Jan 26 - 11:45 PM

Otto Porter returned from a hip injury on Monday during a 116-91 loss to the Celtics, scoring 15 points with six rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.

He did not play in the final 4:33 because the Wizards were down 102-80, so Porter probably would've been close to 35 minutes in a close game. He has fourth-round value on the season and should be viewed as a must-start player.
Jan 25 - 9:46 PM

Otto Porter (hip) will start against the Celtics on Monday.

His hip injury was more than just a contusion and he has a problem with his labrum right now. Porter might not hit the ground running tonight, but he should still be back in all lineups even in a tough matchup against Jae Crowder.
Jan 25 - 6:19 PM

Otto Porter (hip) is expected to return to action on Monday vs. Boston.

Porter was able to go through shootaround, but he revealed he aggravated a labrum tear in his hip, a concern that he's going to have to deal with all season. "Not too concerned because it wasn't a new injury," he said. "We knew exactly what it was. Just give it a couple days to cool out. It was already torn." Although Porter's not expected to see heavy minutes in his first game back, his return will impact the roles of Kelly Oubre and Jared Dudley.
Jan 25 - 12:25 PM

Otto Porter (hip) should be ready to play on Monday against the Celtics.

The Wizards having Saturday's game postponed helps Porter a lot here. After a hard fall on Jan. 13, Porter has missed his last four games. His owners can expect him to return for that one and get back to posting must-start value. Kelly Oubre would lose a lot of run along with Jared Dudley losing some shots and minutes.
