Kristaps Porzingis (sore right hip) practiced fully on Saturday, and coach Jeff Hornacek is optimistic that he'll be ready for Thursday's opener. KP had been going through non-contact drills, but it sounds like he practiced without limitations on Saturday. His preseason hip ailment may have been caused by over-compensating for a previous ankle injury, but either way it's not serious enough to damage his draft stock -- you're unlikely to see him fall beyond the second round in any format.

Frank Ntilikina and Kristaps Porzingis are out for Friday's game against the Wizards. KP was not expected to play in game all week, but he should be ready for the season last year and coach Jeff Hornacek he'd probably play in a regular season game today. He had some hip issues in his first summer league and the leg injuries are starting to pile up, but Porzingis' upside is too high to pass up in the top 25 picks of a standard draft.

Kristaps Porzingis (hip) was limited to the non-contact portions of Thursday's practice. Porzingis maintains that he'll be ready for New York's regular-season opener on October 19, but it's doubtful we'll see him take the court for Friday's preseason finale against the Wizards. This hip issue seems relatively minor and him skipping exhibition games could be described as precautionary, so he'll still make for a very solid early-round target on draft day.

Kristaps Porzingis (hip tightness) said that he'll be ready for the Knicks' season opener on Thursday. Porzingis said that he may have overcompensated for a previous ankle injury, but fortunately this hip ailment doesn't sound like a lasting concern. He's questionable for Friday's preseason finale, but the simple fact that he hasn't been ruled out for an exhibition bodes well. With a clear go-to scoring role this season, and another year of NBA experience, KP is reliably being drafted in the second round.

Kristaps Porzingis (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. With Porzingis sitting out Wednesday's practice, it seems unlikely that he'll be cleared for Friday's preseason finale against the Wizards, and it's currently unclear if this will be an issue that impacts his status for opening night. We'll continue to track his progress closely, but if he's still not taking contact by Friday, there will be some cause for concern here.
