Former Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki shared thoughts on Mavs’ Kristaps Porzingis who will return after 20 months without game play, per Dallas Morning News:

“That’s a long, long time and I was hoping he might get some action at the end of last year, but his body just wasn’t quite ready yet for the season, for regular season games. We worked out with him obviously the last couple months, I mean he’s going to be great.

If stays healthy, he’s super long, you don’t even know on TV how long he really is, he’s super skilled, he can shoot it anywhere, shoot it easy, shoot over anybody. It’s going to take him some games, some preseason games, to kind of get his flow back, but he looked good, he looked skinny and ready to go. I think him and Luka should play well off each other.”
