UPDATE: March 5, 3:31 p.m. Kevin Porter Jr. is out indefinitely due to the concussion he suffered in Wednesday’s loss to the Celtics. Porter was one of the trendy plays on Wednesday’s slate and busted big time.

UPDATE: 8:20 p.m. — Porter has quite the story arc tonight. After forgetting to wear his jersey for the start of the game, reports indicate he injured his head late in the first quarter. It appears he won’t return, ending his night with a disappointing 6.5 DKFP.

One of the most popular plays on tonight’s slate, Porter ($5,300) appeared set to have a big night. He was originally slated to start at shooting guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers in place of Darius Garland. When the game was about to start, an issue arose. Porter left his jersey in the locker room!

This led to Matthew Dellavedova ($3,000) starting and playing most of the first half minutes. At halftime, Dellavedova has scored zero points while accruing two rebounds and two assists. Porter was limited to ten minutes in the first half, so he might be in the doghouse.
