Diminished role since return

Porter recorded five points and five boards across 19 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 65-69 loss to Colorado.
ANALYSIS
Porter got off to an exceptional start to his freshman campaign, averaging 14.0 points and 4.0 rebounds across his first five games (three starts). He then missed a long stretch of time due to a quad injury, and not too long after returning was dealt an indefinite suspension due to a conduct issue. There was even a point in which it was thought Porter might not return to the team, but he's now appeared in the last six games off the bench for USC. After scoring 14 points in his first game back, he's averaged 5.2 points and 3.5 rebounds on 35.7 percent shooting over the next five contests. It doesn't appear as if the relationship between Porter and the Trojans is irreparable at this point, but given that some NBA scouts still see him as a late-first/early-second round talent, it would be a bit surprising to see him return to the program after the conclusion of his freshman season. USC would need a miracle run to make the NCAA Tournament this year, and given that it's a down year for the conference, Porter's national exposure may be limited for the rest of the 2018-19 campaign.
