FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) -- Wizards rookie Otto Porter has a right hip flexor injury.

Porter, the No. 3 overall pick, rode a stationary bike as Washington opened camp Saturday at George Mason University. Coach Randy Wittman said the injury has been bothering Porter for a couple of weeks.

The small forward said he slipped and twisted during a recent voluntary pickup game before camp opened.

"Nothing major," Porter said, classifying his timetable for returning as "day by day."

This is Porter's second injury since joining the Wizards. The former Georgetown star sat out the final two games of the NBA's Las Vegas Summer League with a right hamstring injury.

"He's missing a lot of valuable time out here, in terms of what he's been limited to," Wittman said. "So I mean, we've got to be smart with it. We need to get him healthy as soon as we can."
