Marcin Gortat jokes Otto Porter so small he “might get destroyed”
Otto Porter could make his Washington Wizards debut this weekend. He has been out since before training camp with a hip flexor injury, but the No. 3 pick overall could get some NBA action soon.
And teammate Marcin Gortat is worried about him.
Jokingly. But Porter’s slight frame (6’9, 198 pounds) became a joke, as reported by J. Michael at CSNWashington.com.
Gortat did say good things about Porter.
Porter likely will come off the bench — Washington wants to make the playoffs and Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster are covering the three spot well.
