Otto Porter Jr. To Miss Additional Time

Otto Porter Jr. was expected to be back on the court prior to Christmas. However, his left foot woes are going to keep him out of the lineup for at least four more weeks, according to the team’s website. The Bulls indicated that Porter will “continue his period of immobilization and progress as tolerated” during that time.

That four-week mark is when the team plans on re-evaluating the small fracture in his foot, so expect Porter to sit out well into January. The wing has only played in nine games for Chicago this season because of the ailment. His averages thus far as 11.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.0 steals per contest.

The Bulls enter the night 8-17 on the season. They could certainly use their starting small forward back in the lineup if they are going to make a run at the postseason, as I mentioned on the Turning Points podcast.

Chicago had high hopes for the season, but without Porter Jr. for much of the year, the team has struggled to score efficiently. Only the Knicks have a worse offensive rating than the Bulls, per NBA.com.

    The bulls are a dumpster fire, the fact that it even mentions them having high hopes for the season in this article is a joke pr move from garpax, every fan knew this was a terrible team but the people running the team try and sell garbage as gold

    Hopes for the Post Season. That’s funny. This guy should be on Colbert.

    They’re better off without him, they need to tank like the Warriors are.
