F - DAL - DTD
Dallas Mavericks PF Kristaps Porzingis (knee) has been ruled out Thursday against the Nets.
After missing Tuesday's game, Porzingis will miss Thursday as well. The veteran continues to deal with a knee injury. In the meantime, Dwight Powell will start and see likely 30+ minutes.
Mavericks F/C Kristaps Porzingis (knee) is being listed as doubtful for Tuesday’s game vs. the Heat.
It’s looking like Porzingis is slated to miss his third straight game with the knee injury. His next chance to play comes on Thursday vs. the Nets, which also happens to be on the front end of a back-to-back. Because of that, Porzingis may only play two games this week, which isn’t great if you’re holding onto him in the fantasy basketball playoffs. Dorian Finney-Smith and Willie Cauley-Stein are two guys that will continue to benefit from Porzingis’ absence.
Kristaps Porzingis scored 11 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3PT) with one rebound over 21 minutes before exiting early with a knee issue in the Mavericks 115-105 win over the Pistons.
Apparently, it's the same knee that Porzingis had offseason surgery on, so that's not a good sign. The Mavericks play both Saturday and Sunday so it's doubtful that KP will be ready to go for those contests. Monitor his status prior to Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.
Mavericks F/C Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) is listed as probable Thursday vs. the Pistons after missing the last three games with the injury.
Porzingis was originally listed as doubtful for this game, but has since been upgraded to questionable and now probable, making it likely he'll play. His teammate, Luka Doncic (elbow), is doubtful to play in what is likely a rest day for him. Look for increased minutes for guys like Jalen Brunson, Josh Richardson, and Tim Hardaway Jr.
Dallas Mavericks C Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) is listed as doubtful to play against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday due to a sprained left ankle.
Porzingis has endured injuries frequently throughout his career, his time in Dallas being no exception. Listed as doubtful ahead of Tuesday's game against the Warriors, fantasy managers can continue streaming Dwight Powell or Maxi Kleber. Neither player is a safe roster but they can produce decent outings depending on the matchup. The Warriors allow the sixth-most points per game to opposing centers, which creates the opportunity for either player to produce in your lineup Tuesday.
