May 26 update: Porter Jr. is expected to be out for Game 5 as the Warriors try to close out the Mavericks Thursday.
Golden State Warriors forward Otto Porter Jr. (foot) is not expected to play tonight in Game 5 against the Dallas Mavericks, league sources tell @YahooSports.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) May 26, 2022
May 25 update: Porter Jr. is listed as questionable for Game 5 against the Mavericks. Moses Moody has been playing well in Porter Jr.’s absence, so there’s a chance the Warriors remain cautious with the backup small forward and hold him out one more game.
May 24 update: Despite being upgraded yesterday to questionable, Porter Jr. has been ruled out for Game 4 against the Mavericks. This elevates players like Moses Moody and Andrew Wiggins in DFS lineups, as well as in the rotation for Golden State.
May 23 update: Porter Jr. has been upgraded to questionable, so his foot injury seems to be more about pain management than a structural issue.
May 23 update: Porter Jr. is doubtful to take part in Game 4 Tuesday as the Warriors attempt to sweep the Mavericks in the conference finals. Look for Moses Moody to be a big factor in Golden State’s rotation with Porter Jr. unlikely to play.
Update: Porter Jr. is not returning to Game 3 with the foot injury he suffered in the contest. It is not the same foot injury he had in the second round, which makes it even more concerning for Golden State.
I'm told Otto Porter Jr. is done for the night with left foot soreness. He missed Game 6 of the Conference Semifinals with right foot soreness.— Kendra Andrews (@kendra__andrews) May 23, 2022
The Golden State Warriors saw Otto Porter Jr. go to the locker room in Game 3 against the Dallas Mavericks with a foot injury. Porter Jr. had this issue in the previous round against the Memphis Grizzlies, missing the final game of that series because of it.
Otto Porter just limped out of the game to the Warriors bench and forced the Warriors to call a timeout.— Nick Angstadt (@NickVanExit) May 23, 2022
He’s going to the locker room.
Porter Jr. was noticeably grimacing as he was running up and down the floor trying to play through the pain initially. It looked like the forward tweaked something while defending a layup, but it’s hard to tell exactly when the pain started. Porter Jr. did play Games 1 and 2 of this series with no issues, so this is a concerning development for Golden State.
Look for Moses Moody and potentially Jonathan Kuminga to get some run with Porter Jr. out. The Warriors are also giving Juan Toscano-Anderson some minutes here with a hole in the rotation at small forward, but Moody might have earned the biggest share of minutes overall.
Otto Porter Jr. is getting X-rays on his left foot, per source. No official word yet on his status the rest of the night.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) May 23, 2022
