Kristaps Porziņģis did not play in the previous two Mavericks games. He did not play against the Wizards, as it was the second game in two days, which is a common situation for Porziņģis this season, while he was sidelined against the Jazz due to a wrist injury. The Mavericks had reported that he would receive medical examinations today, but he did not have a deadline for his return.
Riks Kārlails told the media today that Porziņģis will go on an outing with the team to Houston. The coach predicts that the Latvian striker will be able to go on the field already in the next game, namely, on the night to Thursday, when a match against the “Rockets” is expected.
The official status of Porziņģis is indicated in the club’s report tonight as “on question mark”.
Porziņģis has participated in 31 of the Mavericks’ 59 games this season, and has scored an average of 20.2 points and 8.9 rebounds. The Mavericks have now won five games in a row and will return to their field the next day after the game in Houston, where they will play three games in a row, including a meeting with Rodion Kuruc’s Bucks.
