Porter ex­pects to play in Game 4

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

Otto Porter said he had a tin­gling feel­ing run down the left side of his neck and into his arm af­ter be­ing blind­sided by a screen Satur­day night in Game 3.

Porter left the game in the fourth quar­ter af­ter col­lid­ing with Hawks guard Tim Har­d­away Jr. The team de­scribed Porter’s in­jury as a “stinger” and ex­pects him to be avail­able for Game 4 on Mon­day night in Phillips Arena.

Porter said his neck went one way and his shoul­der went an­other way when he ran into Har­d­away, which “kind of pinched a nerve” in his shoul­der.

“He feels much bet­ter, which is good news,” Wizards coach Scott Brooks said.

Porter said he was able to get mul­ti­ple shots up Sun­day dur­ing prac­tice.

“Just try­ing to get back to nor­mal,” Porter said.
