Otto Porter Jr.

  • Otto Porter Jr. - F - Chicago Bulls

    Otto Porter Jr. played 56 games in 2018-19, but found success after his mid-season trade to the Bulls.

    Porter was banged up all season with injuries including toe, personal, knee, quad, leg and shoulder, but still managed a good fantasy season. On the season as a whole, he finished in the top-60 in 8-cat and top-40 in 9-cat, but those jump up to 36 and 30 when only looking at his time on the Bulls. He played only 15 games in Chicago, but his scoring skyrocketed up to over 17 points per game, compared to his 12.6 points per game with Washington this season. His percentages also shot up, so while he's likely due for some regression, a change of scenery away from the toxicity that is the Wizards could have helped Porter raise his play. He should be locked into over 30 minutes per game as the starting small forward next season.

    Otto Porter (right shoulder strain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game with the Knicks.

    Porter's done for the year, even if the organization won't say it. Shaq Harrison, JaKarr Sampson and Wayne Selden are the big beneficiaries.

    Otto Porter Jr. (right shoulder strain) will remain on the sidelines when the Bulls travel to face his former team on Wednesday.

    The Bulls remain tight-lipped on their core's availability for the remainder of the season, but neither Porter nor Zach LaVine are good bets to play again this season. Shaq Harrison remains the best bet at consistent value, while Walter Lemon Jr. has had two productive games since being called up.

    Otto Porter Jr. (shoulder) has been ruled out on Monday vs. the Knicks.

    Porter has missed his last six games and the Bulls are really banged up right now with both Zach LaVine and Kris Dunn missing time as well. Feel free to add Shaq Harrison as he's the biggest beneficiary.

  • Kris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls

    Kris Dunn (sore back) and Otto Porter (rotator cuff strain) will not play on Saturday vs. the Raptors.

    That means you can fire up Shaq Harrison. Ryan Arcidiacono is a lower-upside option as well.

    Otto Porter Jr. (right rotator cuff strain) is out for Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

    This has become a familiar sight recently, as Porter will now miss his fifth game in a row. Porter said he wants to return, but his time is running out. Shaq Harrison, Antonio Blakeney, Wayne Selden and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will continue to shoulder the load in Porter's absence.

    Otto Porter (right rotator cuff strain) will not play in Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Porter has missed his last three games and this will make a fourth. He's said that he plans on returning this season but the Bulls only have eight games left and they might opt to keep him out for the remainder of the year. Antonio Blakeney, Wayne Selden and Shaq Harrison will all have the most to gain from Porter's absence.

    Otto Porter Jr. (right rotator cuff strain) did not practice on Sunday.

    Porter does plan on returning this season, but there's no guarantee that he does. Antonio Blakeney, Wayne Selden and Shaq Harrison will all be looking at extra minutes as long as Porter is out. Harrison is the most intriguing fantasy option, especially if you need steals.

    Otto Porter (right rotator cuff strain) will not play on Saturday against the Jazz.

    Porter was initially doubtful, so this isn't surprising. He would like to return this season but we could be looking at a shutdown situation, so holding on is a tough call at this point. Antonio Blakeney, Wayne Selden and Shaq Harrison will all be looking at extra run off the bench, with Harrison's ability to rack up steals making him the most useful fantasy asset.

    Otto Porter Jr. is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Jazz with his rotator cuff strain.

    Porter not being available is kind of expected at this point. It's very inconvenient right now for fantasy owners but this is unfortunately how it's going to go the rest of the way. He wants to play even though the Bulls 2018-19 season was over in like… 2017. We'll see if he can get into a game soon.

    Otto Porter (right rotator cuff strain) plans on returning this season.

    The Bulls have nine games left, not counting tonight's game that Porter will miss. He's still a shutdown candidate despite his own desire to play, but the fact that he is so upbeat following an MRI does mean that we're probably looking at a day-to-day situation here. It's going to be a big headache for fantasy owners until the Bulls provide a target return date, if they do at all. We wouldn't blame you for holding or dropping either way.

    Otto Porter Jr. (right rotator cuff strain) is out for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    This is a big blow to owners of Porter, as he doesn't get the chance at a revenge game. Shaq Harrison and Wayne Selden will look to absorb the majority of Porter's minutes, and are both decent streamers in a good matchup. Porter went through an MRI and Jim Boylen said simply, "He's hurt." This late in the fantasy season, it's time to look at dropping Porter if you need the space.

    Otto Porter Jr. (right rotator cuff strain) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    This is a big blow to owners, as Porter looks unlikely to play against his old team. Wayne Selden has started in the past at the three, while Shaq Harrison figures to get a substantial minutes bump as well. Both Harrison and Selden make for quality streams in a good matchup if Porter can't give it a go on Wednesday.
