The Georgetown Hoyas are off this week, so it’s time to take a quick look at the NBA.
Otto Porter is feeling a bit better these days, after missing time last season with a left foot injury.
Otto Porter said: "Right now, I feel really good, really strong... As far as the minutes and such, that’s totally up to Coach. I told him that I would play whatever he wanted me to do... It’s totally up to him, and I’m definitely down for doing that." https://t.co/I8AeyMZnTo— Philadelphia Hoyas (@PhillyHoyas) December 15, 2020
Omer Yurtseven was waived by OKC last week, a day after signing. He’ll likely be playing with the G-League.

And apparently Trey Mourning is getting a shot with Houston. It’s likely an Exhibit 10 contract similar to what Yurtseven signed the other week.

The NBA season starts December 22nd, with preseason games all this week.
UPDATE: Once and forever Hoya, Greg Whittington, has a two-way contract with the Denver Nuggets. He should be playing Wednesday night against Portland after some knee inflammation.

R.J. Hampton is questionable (illness), and Greg Whittington is probable (left knee inflammation).
UPDATE 12/17: Trey Mourning has been signed by the Houston Rockets on a “camp deal” to make one of the 15 roster spots. It does appear that the Rockets have a two-way spot open.
