Previously it was announced that Kristaps Porzingis is eyeing Tuesday return from knee injury. But now, this information officially can be denied. Dallas fans are growing nervous and some say that this contract is one of the worst in the NBA franchise despite his huge talent. Porzingis is injury prone.

Once again Kristaps Porzingis is questionable to play. He is very unlikely to play Tuesday’s game against Phoenix due to left knee injury recovery. Apart from this, Porzingis has already missed 10 games earlier in this month due to knee soreness. His fitness status is still unknown. What is clear is that he is doubtful for one or more matches. Dallas Mavericks, due to Luka Doncic’s amazing form this season, are in fifth place at Western Conference.

Kristaps Porzingis (born 2 August 1995) is a Latvian professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He is one of the tallest active players in the NBA, standing at 7 ft 3 in (2.21 m) tall, and plays both the power forward and center positions.
