Otto Porter Jr.
F - GSW
The Golden State Warriors and Otto Porter Jr. have come to an agreement on a deal.
Porter Jr. will likely fill a similar role that Kelly Oubre played for the Warriors last season. He reportedly passed up a bigger deal to sign a minimum deal with Golden State. He should play solid minutes off the bench for the Warriors this upcoming season, and can potentially start if needed as well.
Otto Porter Jr. has been ruled out with left foot pain ahead of the Magic's game Saturday against Utah.
Porter was reportedly in a walking boot Saturday after feeling pain in his left foot, according to Orlando reporter Josh Robbins. Magic head coach Steve Clifford said he believes Porter hurt the foot during Thursday's game in New Orleans.
Orlando Magic SF Otto Porter Jr. registered 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-3 FT) with seven rebounds and four assists across 21 minutes during Tuesday's 103-96 win over the Los Angeles Clippers.
OPJ shot fifty percent from the field against the Clippers on Tuesday, adding seven boards and four dimes to pad his stats in point and category leagues. Magic head coach Steve Clifford currently has him coming off the bench along with Terrence Ross, so it will be interesting to see whether or not he finds himself in the starting lineup replacing James Ennis III soon. Porter Jr. remains available on 66 percent of ESPN waiver wires and should be rostered but held out of your starting lineup unless absolutely necessary.
Chicago Bulls SF Otto Porter Jr. has been traded to the Orlando Magic, per Shams Charania.
The seventh-year forward will join the Magic along with teammate C Wendell Carter Jr. in exchange for All-Star C Nikola Vucevic. Porter will have big shoes to fill in Orlando, as he averaged just 9.9 points and 5.5 rebounds per game this season in Chicago. Fantasy managers should temper expectations until Porter can solidify a role in the front-court, as more trade rumors surrounding Magic PF Aaron Gordon could come to fruition by 3 pm ET Thursday.
Otto Porter Jr. registered 22 points (9-13 FG, 4-7 3PT), four rebounds, three assists, and a block in Friday's loss to the Nuggets.
This was the first time in 2021 that Porter was able to get above the 20-point mark. His role has been very limited on this team and he isn't on the fantasy radar. The eighth-year small forward is averaging 10.7 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game.
