Forward Otto Porter Jr. missed a must-win Game 6 for the Washington Wizards in their playoff series against the Toronto Raptors on Friday night because of an injured left leg.

”It’s hard on him Elias Lindholm Jersey ,” Washington coach Scott Brooks said. ”It’s hard on all of us.”

The No. 8 seed Wizards entered Friday trailing 3-2 in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference first-round series. They announced a few hours before the scheduled tipoff that Porter is sidelined indefinitely after having a medical procedure earlier Friday to prevent permanent damage to muscles in the leg because of compartment syndrome.

Porter has averaged only 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists while making just five 3-pointers during the playoffs.

He was Washington’s third-leading scorer during the regular season, behind John Wall and Bradley Beal, averaging a career-high 14.7 points, along with 6.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists. He was third in the NBA in 3-point field-goal percentage at 44.1 Jake DeBrusk Jersey , another personal best.

”He hasn’t got a lot of things going offensively,” Brooks said. ”But I always felt that, any day now, he was going to have a bust-out game. It’s not going to happen.”

Top reserve Kelly Oubre Jr. moved into Washington’s starting lineup to take Porter’s spot.

Brooks said he also expected Tomas Satoransky and Ty Lawson to see increased minutes off the bench.

”You hate to hear that about a young man, to go down like that Morgan Rielly Jersey ,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said about Porter, ”but they have a lot of guys that can step in and play that role.”

Porter received a max contract last offseason, when he was a restricted free agent and the Wizards ended up matching the Brooklyn Nets’ $106 million, four-year offer sheet for the forward.

That came after Porter set career bests of 13.4 points, 6.4 rebounds Youth John Moore Jersey , 1.5 steals and a 3-point shooting percentage of 43.4.

The Wizards drafted Porter third overall in 2013 out of Georgetown.

Oubre has been averaging 10.6 points and 4.0 rebounds in the series, along with playing active defense.

He was going to draw the tough assignment of guarding DeMar DeRozan in Game 6; Toronto’s All-Star guard came into Friday putting up 28.8 points per game.

But the Wizards also could use some better shooting from Oubre, who has been making only 41.5 percent of his field-goal attempts, including 3 for 16 – 19 percent – on 3-pointers.

”He’s going to get opportunities. Hopefully he can knock some shots down to get some confidence. He hasn’t shot the ball well for a while,” Brooks said. ”But he does a lot of other things. He’s aggressive. He’s an emotional player. He gives us a spark that way Nathan MacKinnon Jersey , and now he’s going to have to start the game with that same intensity he gives us off the bench.”

NOTE: Casey said backup PG Fred VanVleet would be available. VanVleet has been dealing with an injured right shoulder and appeared in only one game in the series.



Papa John's is ending its recently stormy role as an official sponsor of the NFL.

Officials at the pizza chain said Tuesday that the two sides agreed to end the relationship, which became strained last year when its founder John Schnatter criticized NFL leadership over national anthem protests by players.

But the company based in Louisville, Kentucky, is not divorcing itself from the league altogether. It says instead it will focus its football marketing efforts on 22 of the league's 32 teams and its star players.

Schnatter blamed slowing sales growth at Papa John's on the outcry surrounding football players kneeling during the national anthem. The company later apologized for the remarks and Schnatter stepped down as CEO at the end of last year.
