The clock is ticking on Otto Porter's time with the Wizards, who will have 48 hours to match a $106 million offer from the Brooklyn Nets or allow the small forward they drafted No. 3 overall in 2013 to walk for nothing.
Porter's time has been up and down in Washington, but he had a breakout 2016-17 season as he finshed among the league's best three-point shooters in a 49-win season.
His career started out rocky because of his right hamstring and hip. The latter was bothersome but Porter still managed to play a career-high 80 games.
July 14, 2013: Porter has three assists in the Wizards' second summer league game, their second loss in a row as they only put up 69 points.
July 16: Wizards beat the Denver Nuggets 97-69 in the third summer league game but Porter has to leave because he aggravated his hamstring.
Mid-Sept: Porter strains his right hip flexor in a pickup game. Misses all of training camp.
Oct. 28: Porter goes to get an MRI on his right hip flexor strain before the regular season opens in Detroit. He's unable to play in the first 18 games.
Dec. 6: Porter makes his NBA debut in a 109-105 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. He played 14 minutes and missed all three shot attempts.
Dec. 13: Porter gets his first points and makes his first field goal in a 101-99 loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
March 3, 2014: In a 110-104 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, Porter makes his first three-pointer. He finished 2-for-3 from long range.
May 13: Made his only shot in a 102-79 blowout of the Indiana Pacers in Game 5 of the East semifinals for his first postseason points.
Oct. 29: In the season opener at the Miami Heat, a 107-95 loss, Porter had his first game in double-digit scoring. He shot 4-for-7 for 13 points.
Nov. 1: Broke the 20-point barrier for the first time in a 108-97 win over the Milwaukee Bucks, knocking down 7 of 11 shots Porter finished with 21.
May 3, 2015: Recorded his first double-double (10 points, 11 rebounds) in Game 1 of the East semis vs. the No. 1 seed Atlanta Hawks in a 104-98 victory.

Nov. 9, 2016: Set career highs of 34 points and 14 rebounds in a 118-93 blowout of the Boston Celtics.
Jan. 14, 2017: Left a home game vs. the Philadelphia 76ers because of his right hip. Porter said it was precautionary.
Jan. 31 Porter started limping and wasn't the same after he was trying to defend Carmelo Anthony in a game with the N.Y. Knicks. He played gingerly on it from that point on and logged only 29 minutes.
Feb. 10: Porter's hip issues returned in a game vs. the Indiana Pacers. It wasn't apparent but he only took seven shots and scored eight points. CSNmidatlantic.com pulled Porter aside and he said this: "It's just something you get used to. Time to time to time it bothers me a little bit. I try not to focus on it."
April 8: Sat out vs. the Miami Heat because of back spasms.
May 12: Went scoreless in 36 minutes of a 92-91 win vs. Boston in Game 6 of the East semis, missing all five of his shots.
July 2: Receives a $106 million offer sheet from the Kings as a restricted free agent.
July 4: Kings forced to pull offer because of no cap room; Nets extend same offer.
July 5: Wizards prepare to match the offer to retain Porter.
So the question is during the course of a four-year deal, will these hip issues continue and the area worsen or are they just a blip on the screen?
That has to factor into any decisions, but the Wizards and Nets have a major need at his position and that'll end up trumping everything.
