Kristaps Porzingis received injection in sore right knee

Kristaps Porzingis has not played since he suffered a knee injury during the Dallas Mavericks’ game against the Los Angeles Lakers over a week ago, and the team is doing what it can to get him feeling better.

Porzingis received an injection to alleviate soreness in his right knee recently, ESPN’s Tim MacMahon reports. He was also dealing with an illness that has delayed his recovery.

Porzingis will not play against the Lakers on Friday, which will be his sixth consecutive missed game. The good news is the injury is to his right knee, which is not the same knee in which he tore his ACL two years ago.

The Mavericks are 23-14 on the season and on track to make the playoffs, so they will likely continue to play it safe with Porzingis. The big man is averaging 17.3 points and 9.4 rebounds per game in his first season of actual play in Dallas. The priority is having him healthy down the stretch and into the postseason.
