Porter (leg) was able to go through a workout recently, Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington reports.
This marks Porter's first workout since undergoing left leg surgery back in April. The exact intensity and specifics of the drills are unclear, though it still represents a positive step forward in his recovery. Considering there's still multiple months prior to the start of training camp, Porter appears to be on track to be a full participant. Porter finished the 2017-18 campaign playing in 77 games and averaging 14.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.5 steals across 31.6 minutes.
Porter is undergoing a procedure on his left leg to address a build-up of blood flow in the area of his bone bruise, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. He will be sidelined for the remainder of the series.
Porter hasn't been himself during the playoffs while dealing with the injury, averaging 10.0 points in 31.8 minutes. Even still, the news that he'll need to undergo a procedure that will cause him the remainder of the series is relatively out of the blue, as he was listed as questionable for Game 6 prior to this news. As a result of his absence, Kelly Oubre will probably draw the start, with extra minutes likely going to Mike Scott off the bench as well.
Porter (leg) did not participate in shootaround and remains questionable for Friday's Game 6 against the Raptors, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Porter's absence from shootaround surely isn't an encouraging sign for his status Friday night, but he'll likely end up being a true game-time decision as he continues to nurse a bone bruise in his left leg. If he's unable to play in Game 6, Kelly Oubre would most likely be inserted into the starting five.
Porter is dealing with a bone bruise in his left leg and his status is uncertain for Game 6 against the Raptors on Friday, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.
Porter has reportedly been nursing the injury for the entire series, which is likely why he's appeared to struggle a bit of late. With the Wizards on the brink of elimination, it seems likely that Porter will ultimately give it a go Friday, though coach Scott Brooks wouldn't commit to it. "Anything's possible, but we hope for the best," Brooks said regarding Porter's availability Friday. "I know he's banged up. That's all I know as of right now." Look for another update to be provided following Friday's morning shootaround.
Porter finished with 12 points (4-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 39 minutes during Sunday's 106-98 victory over the Raptors.
Porter once again chipped in across the board as the Wizards came from behind to record an impressive victory in Game Four of their first-round series. Porter impacts the game in a number of ways and this is not always reflected on the stat sheet. He is going to need to continue to play well, especially on the defensive end, if the Wizards hope to win in Toronto on Wednesday and steal away the home court advantage.
