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.
Porter is starting Monday against the Jazz, Spencer Davies of BasketballInsiders.com reports.
Porter will get the spot start Monday with Darius Garland (groin) sidelined. In a pair of previous starts this season, Porter posted averages of 12.0 points and 4.5 rebounds in 25.0 minutes.
Porter ended with 16 points (7-19 FG, 2-8 3Pt), five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 31 minutes during Friday's 116-104 loss to the Pelicans.
Porter continues to figure things out during what has been an interesting rookie season. He was second on the team in shot attempts, recording 19 during his 31 minutes. After a couple of games where he saw limited playing time, he appears to have worked his way back into the good books of late. If you can live with a few inconsistent performances, Porter is worth a look in 12-team leagues.
Porter scored a career-high 30 points (9-18 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 8-10 FT) while adding eight rebounds, three assists and three steals in 41 minutes off the bench during Monday's 125-119 overtime win over the Heat.
The rookie was a big part of the Cavs' rally from a 19-point deficit heading into the fourth quarter, and Porter then scored the go-ahead bucket in OT with a dunk off a pass from Kevin Love. Porter had only five total points in his prior two games, though, and this marks only the third time this season he's struck for 20 or more, so the teenage guard remains a risky fantasy play despite the upside he flashed in this one.
Porter scored 18 points (7-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four rebounds, three assists and a steal in 32 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 127-105 win over the Hawks.
The teenage rookie got some extra run late in the blowout -- his 32 minutes were a career high -- but Porter has been rolling since the end of January. He's scored in double digits in seven straight games, averaging 16.1 points, 2.9 boards, 2.4 assists and 2.3 threes in 27.7 minutes a night over that stretch, and he's emerging as the Cavs' primary backcourt option on the second unit.
Porter totaled 17 points (8-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Sunday's 133-92 loss to the Clippers.
Porter took a while to get going Sunday but cashed in during garbage time. He finished with a serviceable 12-team line and more importantly, didn't turn the ball over at all. Porter is looking like a potential breakout candidate as the Cavaliers fall predictably out of the playoff race. He is worth a look right now if you can deal with a few inconsistencies and could pay off later in the season.
Porter provided 13 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 109-103 loss to the Thunder.
Porter matched his career high in minutes and reached double figures in scoring for the fifth straight game. The 19-year-old rookie figures to continue earning plenty of minutes as the season carries on, but expecting consistency might be a tough ask.
Porter has no minutes restriction for Thursday's game against the Raptors, Spencer Davies of BasketballInsiders.com reports.
Porter won't face any restrictions moving forward after experiencing no issues during his first two games back from a multi-week absence. The 19-year-old is averaging 15.0 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 2.0 steals in 21.0 minutes since his return.
Porter produced 21 points (8-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 125-111 loss to the Pelicans.
After having been listed as questionable due to an ankle injury, Porter scored at least 20 for the second time through 36 appearances, and he has reached double figures in nine of his last 18 games. Through his first 18 games he reached double figures just once, so it's clear Porter is becoming more comfortable as the campaign progresses.
Porter (ankle) will play Tuesday against New Orleans, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Porter took part in pregame warmups and has since been cleared to take the court Tuesday evening. He finished with nine points, three steals and a rebound over 16 minutes off the bench Monday night.
Porter (ankle) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against New Orleans.
The designation is likely precautionary, as the Cavs enter the second game of a back-to-back set. Porter made his return to action Monday night after missing a string of games with a sprained right ankle. He finished with nine points, three steals and one rebound across 16 minutes.
Porter pitched in nine points (4-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three steals, one rebound and one block in 16 minutes during Monday's 115-100 win over the Pistons.
Porter returned to the rotation following a 10-game absence due to a sprained left knee and posted a quality line in limited minutes. It's the fourth time through 35 appearances that he has amassed three swipes. Porter has been a pleasant surprise and could find himself more involved here in the second half of the campaign, particularly if the team swings a trade or two before the deadline.
Porter (knee) will play in Monday's contest against Detroit, Spencer Davies of Basketball Insiders reports.
It'll be the rookie's first game since logging 19 minutes against Minnesota back on Jan. 5, snapping a streak of 10 straight missed matchups due to a lingering left knee sprain. Porter will reportedly ease back into the rotation, meaning a minutes restriction is likely for the guard versus the Pistons on Monday. Porter's return will likely also affect teammate Alfonzo McKinnie's minutes moving forward.
Porter (knee) is considered probable for Monday's game against Detroit.
The Cavaliers haven't said much about Porter since he was diagnosed with a sprained left knee early in the month, but it appears he'll have a good chance to get back on the floor Monday. Even if he's ultimately held out, Porter was given a 4-to-6-week recovery timetable back on Jan. 9, so he's well ahead of that initial estimation.
Porter (knee) is expected to be sidelined for four-to-six weeks, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.
Initial reports suggested Porter would be sidelined at least two weeks with a sprained left knee, but now we've been given a more specific, and extended, timetable. While he's sidelined, Dante Exum and Alfonzo McKinnie could be in line for extra minutes.
Porter was diagnosed Monday with a left knee sprain and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Porter's multi-week absence was fully expected after he required assistance off the court in Sunday's loss to the Timberwolves. Fortunately, the rookie appears to have avoided any extensive structural damage to his knee, giving him an outside shot to return prior to the All-Star break or soon thereafter. Dante Exum, who scored a career-high 28 points Sunday, should benefit the most from extra minutes while Porter is sidelined.
