“The Dallas Mavericks announce that Kristaps Porziņģis has undergone surgery for the meniscus of the right knee,” the club said in a message.
“Porzgi was injured in the first round of the playoffs on August 17 against the Los Angeles Clippers.”
Mavericks reports that Porziņģis will start rehabilitation immediately, but no recovery time is currently forecast.
The next NBA season could start in December.
In February 2018, Porziņģis broke the cross ties to his left knee, then representing the New York “Knicks” team.
