The Dallas Mavericks are sliding down the West standings and Kristaps Porzingis’ knee injury isn’t helping

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

Over the last five games though, Porzingis has been watching from the sidelines with what the Mavericks are describing only as knee soreness, and in that time span, Dallas has gone 2-3, dropping games to the Charlotte Hornets and Oklahoma City Thunder along the way. The Mavericks have been tight-lipped about Porzingis’ injury, and as of Thursday afternoon have ruled out their star big man for at least the next two games against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday and Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday.

Aside from that, Porzingis is the second-leading scorer for the Mavericks, averaging 17.3 points, a career-high 9.4 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game. Without Porzingis, the Mavericks have been out-rebounded 266-249 over the past five games, a clear indicator that regardless of him not being fully acclimated to the offense, he’s still at the very least going to help control the boards.
