Otto Porter Struggles to Earn Wizards Role

Basketball Insiders

Wizards rookie forward Otto Porter Jr., the third overall pick from Georgetown, has been used sparingly while backing up two veterans at his position and recovering from a hip injury that sidelined him for nearly three months.Porter admitted that he keeps track of his fellow rookies and takes note of the players who have been given opportunities – but also where they are in the standings.

“I knew the team was on the rise, getting to .500, going above that and getting to the playoffs,” Porter said of the Wizards. Watching other rookies get significant minutes “does make you hungry because they’re out there playing and I’m not. I’m going through things this year and some guys come into a situation where they have to play, for their team to be any kind of success. So it does depend. It is [hard], but my coaches are sticking with me. They are teaching me every day what I need to do to make me that much more ready when I’m out there.”
