Kristaps Porzingis    F  Knicks

 

 

Porzingis (knee) remains questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Thunder. Porzingis departed Thursday's game against the Nets after putting up 13 points and four assists in 18 minutes, and while the team is considering him day-to-day, the big man did state after Thursday's game that his knee was not in significant pain. Of course, the Knicks won't take any chances with Porzingis, and they'll wait until Saturday's shootaround to give him a more thorough evaluation.

Kristaps Porzingis (knee) is questionable for Saturday against the Thunder. The team is calling it left knee soreness and he is day-to-day. After a second half injury, Porzingis said that his knee was unstable on Thursday night, but it was encouraging to see he was walking around on his own after the game. It's certainly possible the Knicks hold him out, but going against Carmelo Anthony could be a factor at MSG. If he's out, it'll be Michael Beasley time while plenty of usage will go around.

Kristaps Porzingis (knee) said he's uncertain if he'll be able to play on Saturday vs. the Thunder. He left Thursday's game with what appeared to be a non-contact injury, but the Knicks are calling it "left knee soreness" for now. Porzingis said after the game that he's not in "significant pain" and he was able to stand on his own, but he won't know more until the Knicks re-evaluate him on Friday morning. If KP can't play, Michael Beasley could see a nice bump in value and just dropped 15 points in 20 minutes vs. the Nets.

Porzingis indicated following Thursday's win over the Nets that his knee is not in significant pain, but that his status for Saturday's game against the Thunder is uncertain, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports. Porzingis also added that he is able to stand on his own. The big man exited the contest late in the second quarter after suffering a non-contact knee injury and was unable to return. He finished his night with 13 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, four assists, and a steal across 18 minutes. Michael Beasley would presumably see the biggest bump in workload should Porzingis ultimately be unable to go Saturday. Expect an update when the team provides more clarity on the situation.

Porzingis (knee) will be held out of the remainder of Thursday's tilt against the Nets, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports. Porzingis went to the locker room after suffering a non-contact left knee injury, which is giving him enough discomfort to keep him out of the rest of the contest. He should be considered day-to-day until further word emerges.

Porzingis went to the locker room with an apparent knee injury during Thursday's game against the Nets and should be considered questionable to return, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports. It's unclear how serious the injury is at this time. If he misses the remainder of the game, he should be considered day-to-day moving forward until further notice.

Kristaps Porzingis left Thursday's game vs. the Nets with a sore left knee and will not return. He checked out with 9:25 remaining in the third quarter and was talking to a trainer before he walked back to the locker room. The Knicks waited about 10 minutes in real time before providing an update, and it's a bit concerning that he wasn't able to return to what has become a really tight game. If KP needs to miss time, Michael Beasley would have to pick up most of the slack on offense. Porzingis finished with 13 points, four assists, two rebounds, one steal and one triple.

Kristaps Porzingis torched the Lakers for 37 points, 11 rebounds, a steal, five blocks and five 3-pointers on 14-of-26 shooting in 40 minutes of Tuesday's 113-109 win over the Lakers. While this wasn't a season high in scoring for the Unicorn, it was arguably the best game of his young career, as very few players have ever had 37 points, five triples and five blocks in one game. He scored 30 in his previous outing and the Knicks have won 14 games, and sit in the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Playoffs. They have more wins than the Thunder, Clippers, Grizzlies and Heat, but the Knicks probably aren't good enough to get Porzingis involved in serious MVP discussions just yet.

Porzingis scored 37 points (14-26 FG, 5-8 3PT, 4-5 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and five steals across 40 minutes in Tuesday's 113-109 overtime win against the Lakers. Since returning from an ankle injury four games ago, Porzingis' offensive output has steadily increased game by game. The New York forward is back to the form that has averaged a career-high 26.0 points this season. Against the Lakers, Porzingis unloaded from three-point land, sinking 5-of-8 three pointers. On Tuesday, he led the team with 26 shots, pushing his career-high average to 20.8 shots per game for the season. As a result, Porzingis is shooting at a career-best 46.4 percent from the floor and a career-high 39.6 percent from beyond the arc. It is evident that Porzingis has taken ownership of the Knicks offense and has elevated his offensive game to new heights.

Kristaps Porzingis expressed his distaste for tanking during a recent interview. "I don’t believe in it either,’’ Porzingis said of tanking. "Every season you have to go with the expectations of making the playoffs. That’s the way to get better. If you do make the playoffs, that experience, you can’t change for nothing." The Knicks aren't likely to be in the playoff hunt this season, which could make it tough for them to come to terms on a rookie extension with Porzingis this summer.
