WASHINGTON (AP) - Georgetown forward Otto Porter Jr. sat out the Hoyas' 69-58 victory over Liberty on Wednesday night because of ``symptoms indicative of a mild concussion'' but could return for the team's next game.

Georgetown announced the sophomore would miss Wednesday's game a little more than an hour before the tipoff. Afterward, coach John Thompson III said Porter is ``coming along fine'' and might be able to play Monday against No. 13 UCLA in New York. Georgetown then faces No. 1 Indiana or Georgia on Tuesday.

``I think he'll be available, but that's up to our medical staff. He's progressing. It is mild,'' Thompson said. ``It's not moderate or it's not serious.''

Porter was hit in the head in the first half of Georgetown's 61-55 victory over Duquesne on Sunday. He left that game before halftime and did not return.

``After the game on Sunday, Otto exhibited symptoms indicative of a mild concussion,'' Thompson said in a statement released before the game against Liberty. ``Otto's well-being is our first priority and he is being monitored by our sports medicine team and our doctors, who have been evaluating him daily.''

Wearing a dark suit and tie, Porter sat on Georgetown's sideline alongside his teammates during Wednesday's home game. Jabril Trawick started in Porter's place and scored five points.

Porter was the Hoyas' leading returning scorer from last season, when he averaged 9.7 points.

``He's one of the key members of our team. He's one of our guys that has experience. Is it different without Otto? Absolutely. But ... we have to figure that out,'' Thompson said. ``Regardless of who is in foul trouble, who is down, who is injured, we have enough other people in that room; we have to step up and figure that out.''
