Rockets' Kevin Porter: Likely to miss Sunday's game
Porter (ankle) is expected to miss Sunday's game at Atlanta, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.
The Rockets are unlikely to play anyone that is out for Friday's contest against the Clippers for Sunday's regular-season finale. If that's indeed the case, Porter will be held out once again with a left ankle sprain. Porter last played May 5 against the Sixers, posting 16 points and five assists in 23 minutes.... See More ...

Rockets' Kevin Porter: Ruled out Friday
Porter (ankle) will not play Friday against Milwaukee.
With Porter ruled out and 13 players included on the injury report, the Rockets may be in legitimate jeopardy of not being able to field enough players for Friday's game. But as a team looking to lose as many games as possible, a forfeit wouldn't necessarily be the worst outcome. As far as Porter is concerned, he should be considered day-to-day after departing Wednesday night's loss with a sprained left ankle. There's a decent chance he could sit again Saturday at Utah....

Porter exited Wednesday's game against the 76ers due to a left ankle sprain and will not return, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.
Porter suffered the ankle sprain during the third quarter of Wednesday's game, limped to the locker room, and was ultimately ruled out for the rest of the night. That leaves the Rockets with six available players for the rest of the game. Depending on the severity of the injury, Porter's next chance to return will come Friday against Milwaukee....

Rockets' Kevin Porter: Stuffs stat sheet Sunday
Porter had 14 points (6-13 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-6 FT), six rebounds, six assists and a steal across 37 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Knicks.
Porter came out of nowhere to score 50 points against the Bucks a few days ago and while he hasn't been able to reach the 20-point mark since then, it's worth noting he has now scored in double digits in six straight games. He's averaging 17.1 points, 6.7 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game since the beginning of April.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Kevin Porter: Scores 16 in 36 minutes
Porter had 16 points (6-18 FG, 2-8 3pt, 2-2 FT) and six assists in Saturday's loss to the Warriors.
Coming off of a 50-point eruption against Milwaukee on Thursday, Porter followed up with a decidedly less-explosive performance Saturday night. Still, the ex-Cavalier led the Rockets in field-goal attempts while tacking on multiple three-pointers for the seventh time in the last eight games.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Kevin Porter: Explodes for 50 points
Porter scored 50 points (16-26 FG, 9-15 3Pt, 9-11 FT) with 11 assists, five rebounds and one block in 41 minutes Thursday in the Rockets' 143-136 victory over the Bucks.
Porter couldn't be stopped Thursday, as he rolled to a new career-high point total and became the fourth-youngest player in NBA history to hit the 50-point mark in a game. The second-year guard struggled in his return Tuesday from a three-game absence due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, but it didn't take him long to shake off any remaining rust. With John Wall (hamstring) out for the remainder of the season, Porter should see plenty of opportunities and could be positioned for a big finish to the campaign.... See More ... See Less

The 20-year-old returned from a three-game absence due to the league's COVID-19 protocols and posted an inefficient 10 points on 12 shot attempts. Before entering the protocols, Porter was averaging 17.0 points, 6.4 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 2.4 three-pointers in 35.0 minutes over his last five games. The second-year guard will look to bounce back shooting-wise Thursday at home against the Bucks.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Kevin Porter: Set to return Tuesday
Porter went through practice Monday and will make his return to action Tuesday night against Minnesota, Cayleigh Griffin of ATT SportsNet Southwest reports.
After missing three games while dealing with the league's COVID-19 protocols, Porter was cleared to return to the team Monday, and after putting in a full practice he's been cleared to return Tuesday. Prior to entering the protocols, Porter averaged 17.0 points, 6.4 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 2.4 made threes over his last five appearances (35.2 MPG).... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Kevin Porter: Out three games for COVID protocols
Porter was placed in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols and has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Jazz. Rockets head coach Stephen Silas said he expects Porter to be sidelined through Sunday, according to Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest.
Porter has been one of the few consistent sources of offense for Houston since joining the team at the All-Star break. In 31.7 minutes per game, he's averaged 15.5 points, 6.2 assists and 3.8 rebounds. His absence -- which will likely span at least three games -- will open up minutes for Avery Bradley, DaQuan Jeffries and Armoni Brooks.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Kevin Porter: Balanced effort despite loss
Porter notched 18 points (6-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three assists and two rebounds across 31 minutes in Monday's loss against the Heat.
Porter has been outstanding since joining the Rockets and delivered another strong performance in this game, co-leading the team in scoring with Christian Wood and delivering a strong all-around effort. Porter has had a few off nights but that can be expected out of a young player, though he's been a steady performance of late for Houston. He has scored at least 15 points in four of his last five games and has registered double-digit in all but two contests since joining the Rockets back in late March.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Kevin Porter: Team-high seven assists
Porter totaled 22 points (8-15 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and a steal over 32 minutes during the 114-110 win over the Magic on Sunday.
Porter sat at the final 5:05 of the third because of foul trouble and would eventually foul out with over seven minutes to go in the game. Still, he was one of three players to hit the 20-point mark and managed to lead the Rockets in assists. After putting up a dud performance Friday, Porter managed to bounce back for his second 20-point outing in his last four contests.... See More ... See Less
