The Chicago Bulls will be without key swingman Otto Porter Jr. for at least another month, after a foot and ankle specialist found a small fracture in his foot.
The Bulls announced the news today after Porter had been evaluated on Monday in Green Bay by Dr Bob Anderson.
Porter’s injury had been initially diagnosed as a bruise, but the fracture became apparent after repeated testing over the last five weeks. According to a release by the Bulls, Porter will “continue his current period of immobilization and progress as tolerated over the next four weeks when he will be reassessed.”
The 26-year-old – a former No.3 overall draft pick – suffered the injury in a game against the Atlanta Hawks on Nov. 6, after playing nine games this season for an average of 11.2 points per game.
