Porter (concussion) will not play in Tuesday's tilt against the Bulls, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports. Porter has yet to clear the concussion protocol and will miss his third consecutive game as a result. His next chance to suit up will be Friday versus the Hornets.
Porter (concussion) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Spurs, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports. Porter's absence for a second straight game comes as little surprise after he was ruled out indefinitely upon picking up a concussion in his last appearance Wednesday against the Celtics. The rookie will need to clear each phase of the protocol for head injuries before the Cavaliers deem him available for action. Unless he's able to get in some on-court work Monday, Porter seems likely to sit out Tuesday's game in Chicago, too, and perhaps additional contests to follow.
Porter has been placed in the league's concussion protocol and is out indefinitely, Sam Amico of SI.com reports. Porter suffered the concussion after playing 10 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Celtics. It comes at an unfortunate time for Porter, who had strung together a nice stretch of games. In the 14 contests prior to Wednesday, he was averaging 14.2 points on 11.4 shots, plus 3.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.0 steal in 28.2 minutes. That stretch also included one 30-point, eight-assist, three-assist, three steal effort against the Heat. While Porter is on the shelf, the short-handed Cavaliers may have to get creative to fill 48 minutes per position. The recently-signed Sir'Dominic Pointer could see significant run.
Porter suffered a head injury and is doubtful to return to Saturday's game against Boston, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Porter left during the second quarter of Wednesday's game after suffering an unspecified head injury. As the specifics of the issue are largely unclear, look for the team to provide a more detailed update on Porter's health status ahead of Saturday's tilt with the Nuggets.
Porter will come off the bench for Wednesday's tilt with Boston, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports. Porter was a late scratch from the starting lineup, being replaced by Matthew Dellavedova. The move's unlikely to affect his workload as the rookie guard's been one of the bright spots on the Cavaliers over the recent weeks and has tallied double-digit scoring performances in 10 of his past 12 games.
