Scouting report
Porter has not dealt with an injury that has kept him out of the game since he suffered a bruised thigh last season that sidelined him for a significant amount of time. This time, his mindset was the same, as he did not think he would be out of the lineup for as long as he had. “No,” said Porter when asked if he thought his injury would sideline him for a substantial amount of time. “For any injury I have suffered, I felt like I could bounce back. My body is usually good at bouncing back. So, definitely, I thought I was going to be back faster.”

Kevin Porter not close to returning from toe injury

Three weeks after he injured his toe during the first of the Rockets’ two games in Sacramento, point guard Kevin Porter Jr. seems no closer to returning. Porter will miss his 10th consecutive game on Wednesday when the Rockets play the Thunder. He said on Tuesday that he has not begun any basketball activities and has no target return date in mind.
Porter has not practiced since his injury. Although the Rockets have continued to describe his ailment as a left foot contusion, Porter and coach Stephen Silas both said the problem is pain in Porter’s left big toe. That is as specific a diagnosis as has been revealed. “It’s just irritated. It’s something to do with my joint, but it’ll be fine,” Porter said. “We’ve just been taking it a day at a time, really. You know, I sometimes shoot in my free time. I dribble the ball all day every day when I’m at home, and I do those little things but as far as participating, everything like that, we’re taking it a day at a time.”
