Otto Porter (leg) out rest of first round vs. Raptors

Otto Porter (leg) out rest of first round vs. Raptors

Whether or not they will have a fully stocked roster for that game remains in doubt as of now.

"Wizards forward Otto Porter Jr underwent a successful left lower leg fasciotomy for compartment syndrome earlier today", read a Washington statement. Porter's leg injury has clearly bothered him for multiple games and the medical staff has been monitoring him.

Otto Porter is undergoing a small procedure and will miss at least Game 6 on Friday and a potential Game 7 on Sunday, if the series lasts that long, according to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.

Porter has averaged 10 points and five rebounds per game in five 2017-18 playoff appearances. On Thursday, Wizards Coach Scott Brooks was vague about Porter's status for Game 6, set to be played at 7 p.m. Friday in Capital One Arena. "That's all I know as of right now". He's averaging 10 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.0 blocks on 48.8 percent shooting and 41.7 percent from beyond the arc.

Washington drew level after surrendering the first two games of the series to the Raptors, but a 108-98 win on Wednesday gave Toronto a 3-2 lead.
