After the game, Wizards coach Scott Brooks was noncommittal about Porter’s status for Wednesday’s season-finale against the Orlando Magic.
“Doubt if he plays,” Brooks said about Porter, “but you never know.”
Kelly Oubre Jr. and Mike Scott stepped up in Porter’s absence, scoring 11 and 12 points, respectively, off the bench.
For now, the Wizards are eighth in the East. Their result against the Magic, along with how Miami fares against Toronto and what Milwaukee does at Philadelphia, will determine where the Wizards, Heat and Bucks all wind up in the standings.
