Porter played a season-high 22 minutes off the bench Wednesday against the Jazz, but failed to make any sort of impact in a 104-91 win. Porter was held scoreless while missing his lone field-goal attempt, and he added just two rebounds and two steals to his line.
Pretty much nothing has gone right for Porter since he was selected with the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft. He has struggled to play through injuries, appearing in just 27 games and averaging 1.6 pints per game on 30.2 percent shooting.
Porter has been buried in the rotation his entire rookie season. The first-round pick failed to see any minutes off the bench in a triple overtime game on Thursday against Toronto and only saw the court Saturday against Philadelphia once the game was well in hand. He is averaging 1.6 points and 1.4 rebounds in 25 appearances.
“We have to be a little careful with all the new guys we’re bringing back but I think down the down the road we could look at that in case, something [injuries]…You got to cover your back,” Wittman said.
Porter, the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, has appeared in just 6 of the team's last 15 games and 22 of 33 since making his return from a hip injury. He is averaging 1.7 points and 1.5 rebounds per game.
Porter has yet to score in double figures in his 13-game NBA career, a disappointing showing for the No. 3 overall pick in last June's draft. He is averaging just 2.4 points in 12.2 minutes per game.
After missing more than a month with a right hip flexor strain,
Porter, the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, entered the game off the bench at the start of the second quarter. He only logged 14 minutes of game action and missed all three of his field goal attempts, including a shot from beyond the arc. He was held scoreless with two rebounds and one assist in a 109-105 defeat.
