Otto Porter will miss the Wizards' final home game against the Miami Heat on Saturday night due to back spasms, head coach Scott Brooks announced during his pregame press conference. Second-year forward Kelly Oubre, Jr. will start in his place.
Brooks also revealed good news that Markieff Morris will play. Morris missed the team's last game on Thursday night against the Knicks with a sore right ankle.
Porter had been considered questionable all day due to his back, as reported by CSN. The 23-year-old will miss his first game this season and his first since Jan. 20, 2016.
Porter had appeared in 120 consecutive games, the longest streak on the Wizards. That distinction now belongs to Marcin Gortat, who will play his 80th straight game on Saturday night.
This will be Oubre's third start of the season. Porter is averaging 13.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.
