Porter had a breakout year after becoming the full-time starter, averaging 11.6 points per game. Porter saw his role increase during the 2015-16 season to full-time starter after the departure of Paul Pierce this past offseason. The added responsibility and minutes naturally led to an increase in production, going from 6.0 points and 3.0 rebounds per contest during the 2014-15 season to 11.6 points and 5.2 rebounds per game this season. The third-year pro played in all but seven games, only missing three in December with a bruised thigh and four games in January with hip soreness. Unless Washington makes a big offseason acquisition, Porter will remain the starter and should be taken in the mid rounds of standard league drafts.
Porter scored 20 points (8-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt) to go with four assists and one rebound in 28 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Kings. It was Porter's highest scoring total in 11 games and just the third time he's made four three pointers all season. Porter has exhibited a nice shooting touch from distance at times and his efficiency on offense usually dictates his production.
Porter provided 14 points (6-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt), 13 rebounds, one assist, and one block across 45 minutes during the Wizards' 132-129 double overtime loss to the Timberwolves on Friday. Porter has scored in double figures in eight straight games after managing only 28 points through the first five contests in March. This was his second double-double in the last three games, and his fifth of 2015-16. Porter is averaging 14.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, two threes, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.8 blocks in 36 minutes over his last eight showings.
Porter finished with 16 points (6-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals, and a blocked shot in 36 minutes during Monday's win against the Hawks. This punctuates an impressive stretch for Porter, who is now averaging 15.2 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 2.0 steals over his last six contests. It's the sixth time he's grabbed double-digit rebounds and the 15th time he's registered stats across all five major categories. At just 22 years old, he is finally beginning to show flashes of promise and should continue to improve with this group in Washington.
Porter netted 23 points (8-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds, an assist, and a career-high five steals in 33 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Nuggets. It was a much need scoring binge for Porter, who had recorded single-digit scoring outings in his previous five games. The third-year swingman has had the opportunities with Bradley Beal (pelvis) still out but hasn't produced must until tonight. With the season winding down, he probably isn't worth the risk in most situations but may provide a scoring burst here and there.
