Top Kristaps Porzingis News

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Records double-double

    Porzingis totaled 23 points (5-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 12-12 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 31 minutes during Tuesday's 117-99 victory over the 76ers.

    Porzingis made his presence felt on both ends of the court en route to posting his third double-double over his last 10 appearances. Even though he has the length to be an absolute menace on the boards, Porzingis can thrive in other areas as well, and he's been outstanding as a scorer in recent weeks, hitting the 20-point threshold in six of his last eight contests. He might hold a secondary role on offense behind Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown on most nights, but Porzingis is getting the most out of his touches on a nightly basis.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Solid output in win Saturday

    Porzingis had 22 points (7-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one block in 32 minutes during Saturday's 116-102 win over the Knicks.

    Porzingis' primary responsibility Saturday was to score, and he accomplished that goal by delivering his first 20-point outing since Feb. 11. The star big man seems to be finding his spots and playing better as the season advances. Porzingis is averaging 23.0 points per game in February, which represents his highest average for any single month this season.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Off injury report

    Porzingis (ankle) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Bulls, Taylor Snow of the Celtics' official site reports.

    Porzingis tweaked his ankle in Boston's final game heading into the break, but he'll be good to go for Thursday's matchup and should see his usual workload. Over his last seven appearances, Porzingis has averaged 23.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 28.6 minutes per game.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Expects to be fine for next game

    Porzingis sat out the entire second half of Wednesday's 136-86 win over the Nets after rolling his ankle in the second quarter, but he said he would have been available to return had the game been competitive, Jay King of The Athletic reports. He tallied 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one block in 16 minutes.

    Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla seemed to echo Porzingis' sentiments after the game, so fantasy managers shouldn't panic too much about the big man's early exit. Porzingis will have ample time to recover from the ankle sprain, as the Celtics will head into the All-Star break before returning to play their next game Feb. 22 in Chicago.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Not expected to return Wednesday

    Porzingis went to the locker room shortly before halftime of Wednesday's game against the Nets with an ankle injury and is uncertain to return, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    The Celtics haven't provided official word on Porzingis' status for the rest of the contest, but the fact that he had a wrap on his ankle in addition to Boston having built a 36-point halftime lead makes it likely that his night is over. Top backup Al Horford (toe) is already sitting out Wednesday, so the Celtics will likely turn to Luke Kornet and Neemias Queta to fill most of the minutes at center for the rest of the game.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Not on injury report

    Porzingis (back) isn't listed on Boston's injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Nets, Justin Turpin of WEEI.com reports.

    Porzingis missed Tuesday's win over Brooklyn to rest his back but will return to action for Wednesday's rematch. Al Horford (toe) and Xavier Tillman (knee) are both out, so Porzingis will likely need to play heavy minutes in Boston's frontcourt.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Ruled out Tuesday

    Porzingis (back) is out for Tuesday's game against Brooklyn.

    Porzingis exited in the third quarter of Sunday's 110-106 win over Miami due to the low back contusion but returned for the fourth quarter and played 32 minutes in the victory. The Celtics haven't indicated that Porzingis' back is presenting major problems for him two days later, so it's possible that his absence Tuesday is more of a maintenance day for the front end of a back-to-back set. Al Horford is likely to start at center in Porzingis' stead Tuesday, but Porzingis could be back in the lineup for Wednesday's rematch with Brooklyn while Horford rests.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Questionable for Tuesday

    Porzingis is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Nets due to a low back contusion, Taylor Snow of the Celtics' official site reports.

    Porzingis sustained his back injury in Sunday's game against the Heat but was able to return to the contest. However, it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to suit up Tuesday. Xavier Tillman (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's matchup, so Luke Kornet and Al Horford should see additional playing time if Porzingis is unavailable.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Sniffs double-double

    Porzingis recorded 25 points (8-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 7-9 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and two blocks over 32 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 victory over Miami.

    Porzingis has experienced an uptick in his play in recent weeks, and his scoring numbers have improved drastically, to the point that he's been Boston's second-best offensive player over the last few weeks, even ahead of Jaylen Brown. The big man is averaging 26.6 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game since the beginning of February.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Returns to Sunday's game

    Porzingis (back) returned to the court for the Celtics to begin the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Heat, Abby Chin of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Porzingis exited the game with 7:21 remaining in the third quarter and retreated to the locker room, with the big man later being diagnosed with a low-back contusion. He was listed as probable to return to the contest, and his ability to check into the game to begin the fourth quarter suggests Porzingis' back issue shouldn't be much of a concern moving forward.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Picks up minor back injury

    Porzingis is probable to return to Sunday's contest against Miami due to a low back contusion, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Porzingis checked out of the game with 7:21 remaining in the third quarter and gingerly walked to the locker room after he apparently suffered the injury while fighting for a loose ball in the paint. Given his probable tag, Porzingis looks likely to return to the contest once he gets treatment for his back.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Posts double-double

    Porzingis ended Friday's 133-129 win over the Wizards with 34 points (9-18 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 14-14 FT), 11 rebounds and one block in 33 minutes.

    Porzingis has scored at least 30 points in back-to-back games, something he hadn't accomplished all season long, and he continues to prove he can deliver when called upon. Porzingis is averaging 25.0 points and 8.2 rebounds per game over his last five outings, and while he's not expected to reach the 30-point mark on a regular basis going forward, he remains productive in terms of fantasy appeal. He's on pace to average at least 20 points per game for the sixth consecutive season.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Strikes for 31 against Atlanta

    Porzingis finished Wednesday's 125-117 victory over the Hawks with 31 points (13-19 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist and two blocks over 31 minutes.

    The veteran big led the Celtics in scoring while delivering 30 or more points for the second time in his last six games. Porzingis is having his usual trouble staying on the court, missing five games since the beginning of January due to knee and ankle trouble, but he's been productive when he's been available -- over his last nine contests, the 28-year-old is averaging 21.7 points, 6.8 boards, 2.6 threes, 2.3 blocks and 2.1 assists while shooting 53.2 percent from the floor and 45.1 percent from beyond the arc.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Strong effort in blowout win

    Porzingis produced 26 points (10-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 28 minutes during Sunday's 131-91 victory over the Grizzlies.

    Porzingis' skill set was on full display, as he knocked down shots from the perimeter, got a few open dunks and protected the paint on defense. Since missing three of four games, Porzingis has appeared in three straight matchups, averaging 20.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.7 blocks and 2.3 assists in 29.3 minutes during that stretch.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Decent two-way play in loss

    Porzingis supplied 17 points (7-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, five blocks and one steal over 29 minutes during Thursday's 114-105 loss to the Lakers.

    Porzingis struggled from the field and was particularly woeful from beyond the arc, as he missed six of his seven attempts from deep, but he salvaged his fantasy line by delivering strong contributions in other categories, particularly on the defensive end. Porzingis has averaged 18.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.2 blocks per game since the start of January.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Double-double against Indiana

    Porzingis notched 17 points (6-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and one block across 31 minutes during Tuesday's 129-124 victory over Indiana.

    Making his return from a two-game absence due to a sprained ankle, Porzingis delivered his first double-double since Jan. 2 and his sixth of the season. The veteran big missed five total games in January with various minor injuries, and in the 11 contests he was able to suit up for he averaged 18.3 points, 6.2 boards, 2.5 assists, 2.0 threes and 1.9 blocks while shooting 50.8 percent from the floor and 44.9 percent from beyond the arc. Porzingis' usage has predictably dropped in his first season with Boston while playing alongside the likes of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, but his efficiency has improved, and he's on pace for his best blocks per game average since 2019-20.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Good to go Tuesday

    Porzingis (ankle) is active for Tuesday's game against Indiana.

    Porzingis has been dealing with a left ankle sprain, but he will return from a two-game absence Tuesday. He represents Boston's lone available big man, as Al Horford (neck) and Luke Kornet (hamstring) are both unavailable.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Iffy for Tuesday

    Porzingis (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Pacers, Taylor Snow of the Celtics' official site reports.

    Porzingis has missed back-to-back games and three of Boston's last four contests due to a left ankle sprain. Al Horford (neck) is out and Luke Kornet (hamstring) is doubtful, so if Porzingis is sidelined again, Boston's frontcourt will be shorthanded versus Indiana.

  • Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis: Downgraded to out

    Porzingis (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Pelicans, Justin Turpin of WEEI.com reports.

    Despite being active at the team's morning shootaround, Porzingis has been downgraded from questionable to out, joining Luke Kornet (hamstring) on the sidelines. Al Horford (neck) is available and should start in Porzingis' absence once again. Porzingis' next chance to suit up will come during the second half of Boston's back-to-back set versus Indiana on Tuesday, but his availability for that contest will likely be a game-time decision.
