The timetable for Chicago Bulls’ forward Otto Porter is unknown, according to a report by Eric Woodyard of ESPN.
Porter was diagnosed with a left foot sprain and will not play in the Bulls game against the Houston Rockets on Saturday.
Bulls head coach Jim Boylen had this to say according to Woodyard:
“It’s a soft tissue injury so it’s something that’s difficult to put a timetable on. That’s about as easy as I could say. We’re not exactly sure.
“I don’t want to give you a definite timetable because it could be sooner or longer than maybe we see. I know that’s vague and I’m sorry for that, but that’s the kind of injury it is.”
The Bulls were expecting Porter to be a relief upon scorer and three point shooter, as after he was acquired in a trade last season, he averaged 17.5 points per game, including 48.8% from downtown in the fifteen games with the club.
Various injuries, a sprained ankle, and a foot contusion have limited Porter’s productivity, as he has only shot 41.7 percent from the field.
Chandler Hutchison could finally be unglued from the Chicago bench with Porter being out
