Kristaps Porzingis Returns For Mavs

The Mavericks will have Kristaps Porzingis in the lineup for the first time since December 29, as ESPN’s Tim MacMahon passes along on Twitter.

“Porzingis is scheduled to play. He’s looking forward to playing,” head coach Rick Carlisle told the media prior to the Mavs’ tilt against the Clippers.

Porzingis’ knee has kept him on the sideline during the entire month of January. He’s missed 10 games for the club and Dallas has gone 6-4 during his absence.

While there’s no word of an exact minute restriction, Carlisle said that the big man will play shorter stints than he normally would. Porzingis has played in 31 games for the Mavs this season, seeing 31.2 minutes per contest.

      That’s gonna be a problem now that Powell is out for the season. Kleber will probably be starting with Boban as his backup at center.

  1. the dude

    I have six teams on Yahoo fantasy, and Kris P with Dipo was my second best injured list next to Steph and Maple Curry. I just checked too and saw Zingis is active, meaning your two hour old update was more reliable than the YouTube ones.

    Then again got one saying Kemba was back 4 hours after the game was over so…

  2. x%sure

    Just in time… Zinger new 5? He probably has the clout to block it tho. Kleber & Boban remain there.
