Georgetown Hoyas sophomore Otto Porter will not play Wednesday night against the Liberty Flames after being diagnosed with a concussion. Porter suffered the concussion in Georgetown's 61-55 win over Duquense on Sunday.

Porter left Sunday's game after being hit in the head just six minutes into the game. It appeared to be an eye injury at the time, but Porter "exhibited symptoms indicative of a mild concussion," according to a statement released by the school. In his six minutes of action, Porter grabbed one rebound and recorded one assist.

Porter is the Hoyas' leading returning scorer and rebounder from last season, when he averaged 9.7 points and 6.8 rebounds per game as a freshman. He was named to the Preseason All-Big East Team, the only sophomore to earn that honor.

Georgetown takes on Liberty on Wednesday, but has a much stiffer task on Monday, Nov. 19 when they play the UCLA Bruins in the Legends Classic in Brooklyn, N.Y. There is no word if Porter will be ready to return by that date.
