Kristaps Porzingis confirms he suffered broken nose
Kristaps Porzingis may have reentered the Dallas Mavericks’ game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night after taking a shot to the nose, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t suffer a significant injury.
Porzingis confirmed after the Mavs’ 121-107 loss to Memphis that his nose was broken. He says he will get it checked out on Thursday.

The Mavericks have been without Luka Doncic since he suffered an ankle injury on January 28. They may now be without both him and Porzingis depending on how things shake out with the big man’s nose.
