Portis (ribs) turned in 13 points (3-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one block across 30 minutes during the Knicks' 115-99 preseason loss to the Wizards on Friday.
Portis turned in a solid showing off the bench despite some shooting struggles, which may have partly been a byproduct of his recent rib injury. The fifth-year big is set to serve as the primary backup at both frontcourt spots and is coming off a season where he set career highs in points (14.2) and rebounds (8.1) across 50 games with the Bulls and Wizards.

This is the first report of Portis' injury and it's currently unknown at the moment how severe it may be. For now though, consider him day-to-day moving forward.
Portis agreed to a two-year, $31 million contract with the Knicks on Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Portis put together the best season of his career across stops with the Bulls and the Wizards during the 2018-2019 campaign, putting up 14.2 points along with 8.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists over 50 contests. Washington did extend a qualifying offer to the 24-year-old big man, though they've since rescinded that offer, allowing for Portis to sign as an unrestricted free agent, per Fred Katz of The Athletic. His stellar play has earned himself a payday, and he'll likely enter the starting lineup at one of the forward positions alongside Julius Randle and Kevin Knox, assuming the deal is finalized.
Portis was extended the qualifying offer by the Wizards, making him a restricted free agent, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Portis played in 28 games for Washington last year, averaging 14.3 points, 8.6 and 1.5 assists in 27.4 minutes. If he resigns he could see a minor erosion of playing time with Rui Hachimura being added to the frontcourt via last week's draft.
Portis tallied 16 points (6-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and two assists across 37 minutes Friday against San Antonio.
Portis had an average shooting day and cleaned up the boards in a 129-112 loss. The 24-year-old has secured nine or more rebounds in each of his team's previous five contests, and he'll aim to extend that streak through the remaining two games of the regular season. Portis draws an enticing matchup Sunday in New York.
Portis provided 20 points (9-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals, two blocks, and one assist in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 115-114 loss to the Bulls.
Portis produced a massive stat line, supplying his career-high 13th double-double without receiving a ton of minutes. He remains fairly inconsistent overall. However, Portis is likely to continue asserting himself across the last three games of 2018-19.
Portis finished with 28 points (11-22 FG, 6-12 3Pt), 13 rebounds, four assists, four steals, and one block in 39 minutes during Friday's 128-124 loss to the Jazz.
Portis had arguably his best all-around line of the season Friday, contributing across the board as the Wizards made a late charge against the Jazz. They rallied from 15 points down in the third quarter to lead with only minutes remaining. Unfortunately they couldn't finish it off, however, Portis certainly made the most of the playing time. The points and rebounds are always a chance of happening with Portis but the five defensive stats are a bonus.
Portis contributed 10 points (3-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 25 minutes in the Wizards' 124-106 loss to the Lakers on Tuesday.
Portis was bumped to the bench for Tuesday's game but still turned in a serviceable line overall relative to playing time. The 24-year-old has posted six straight double-digit scoring efforts and continues to offer solid contributions on the rebounding front as well. Factoring in Tuesday's output, Portis is averaging 14.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 14 March contests.
Portis will play a reserve role in Tuesday's matchup with the Lakers.
Portis has started 15 consecutive games for the Wizards, so this is somewhat of a surprising move. The team will instead opt to go with Trevor Ariza (groin) and Thomas Bryant in their frontcourt to start the game. Still, he will presumably see relatively healthy minutes off the bench.
Portis scored 14 points (6-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and an assist in 31 minutes during Saturday's 113-108 loss to the Heat.
The Wizards' new starting frontcourt of Portis and Thomas Bryant each recorded double-doubles in this one, which should give coach Scott Brooks the confidence to continue the experiment. Portis now has five double-doubles in 15 games since moving into the starting five, averaging 13.9 points, 8.4 boards, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.1 assists over that stretch.
Portis and Thomas Bryant are expected to serve as the Wizards' starting frontcourt tandem for the foreseeable future after coach Scott Brooks said after Thursday's 113-108 loss to the Nuggets that he would give the pairing "some games," Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Portis had started at center over Bryant in the Wizards' previous 13 games before shifting to power forward Thursday. The position switch didn't seem to have much of an impact on Portis, who finished with 18 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds and one assist in 36 minutes. If the Wizards do decide to commit to regularly using Bryant in a 30-plus-minute role, there would be some risk of Portis losing out on playing time at power forward to the resurgent Jabari Parker, but probably not enough to dramatically downgrade the 24-year-old's rest-of-season outlook. With averages of 14.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 1.8 triples in 27.4 minutes per game since joining the Wizards in early February, Portis still warrants ownership in most formats, but his dearth of blocks and poor field-goal percentage relative to most big men don't make him an ideal fit for every roster.
Portis totaled 15 points (6-17 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and three assists over 38 minutes in the Wizards' loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.
Portis had a productive game in a matchup with his former team, scoring 15 points and adding solid contributions in rebounds and assists. Portis has carved out a nice role for the Wizards and should continue to receive heavy minutes moving forward.
Portis totaled 17 points (6-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 13 rebounds, three steals, one assist and once block across 33 minutes in the Wizards' win over the Kings on Monday.
Portis delivered another yet double-double in Monday's win, adding three steals and a block on defense to further enhance his stat line. He's enjoyed renewed success as Washington's starting center and over his last four games, he's averaged 20.5 points and 10.3 rebounds.
Portis pitched in 21 points (9-18 FG, 3-6 3Pt), 12 rebounds, one assist, and one block in 31 minutes during Saturday's 135-130 overtime loss to the Timberwolves.
Portis has tallied five double-doubles across 12 appearances with the Wizards, this compared to four across 22 games with the Bulls prior to the recent trade. With 16 tilts left in the regular season, it's entirely possible that Portis will end up surpassing his previous career high in double-doubles (12 in 2017-18).
Portis poured in 23 points (10-16 FG, 3-4 3Pt) and collected nine rebounds along with three assists and a block Friday night against Charlotte.
Portis has now scored 12 or more points in four of his previous five contests, and he's also registered two double-doubles over that stretch. The 24-year-old forward remains a consistent source of scoring and rebounding, and he also swats the occasional shot. He's averaging 14.4 ppg and 7.8 rpg over 32 contests this season.
