DALLAS — Golden State Warriors forward Otto Porter Jr. is “doubtful” to play in Tuesday’s Game 4, coach Steve Kerr said on Monday.
Porter departed Game 3 of the Western Conference finals midway through the second quarter and was later ruled out with what the team described as left foot soreness.
Porter sustained the injury when he landed after going up for a layup. Porter came up hobbling, and was fidgeting with his left foot at the next stoppage — a pair of Dallas free throws. Porter tried to play through the pain, but called to be subbed out just a few moments later.
During the Warriors’ subsequent timeout, Porter limped back to the locker room with trainers. After undergoing X-rays, he was running up and down the hallway testing out his foot.
Porter missed Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals with right foot soreness.
