Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Undergoes knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis underwent surgery Friday to repair his torn right meniscus.

Porzingis suffered the injury during Game 1 of the Mavericks' first-round playoff series against the Clippers. It was initially unclear if he would opt for surgery or not, but he's decided to go under the knife. There is not currently a timetable for Porzingis' return, though it seems possible, if not likely, he'll be able to participate in training camp. However, it's unclear when next season may begin, with initial estimates being anywhere from January to March.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Torn meniscus, out for series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (knee) has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus and will not play in the remainder of the Round 1 series against the Clippers.

Porzingis has been dealing with persistent right knee soreness, and after team doctors were able to get a better look, he's been diagnosed with a torn meniscus. He won't be returning to play against the Clippers, and, without him, the Mavericks' chances of advancing are slim. Even if Dallas pulls a major upset coming out of a 3-2 hole, it's not clear if Porzingis would be available for Round 2 or any future rounds. Surgery is a possibility for the big man, who missed all of last season due to a torn ACL suffered in 2017-18.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Doubtful for Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (knee) did not practice Friday and is doubtful for Sunday's Game 6 against the Clippers, Dorothy J. Gentry of The Athletic reports.

Though postponements gave Porzingis more time to heal, it sounds like his right knee soreness is extremely persistent, and we shouldn't expect him to play in a crucial Game 6 with the Mavericks down 3-2. Assuming Porzingis is out, Trey Burke is likely to start again and see extended run.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: To be game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (knee) will be a game-time call for Thursday's Game 6 against the Clippers, but coach Rick Carlisle said Wednesday that he's "not optimistic" about the big man's chances to play, Bobby Karalla of Mavs.com reports.

Carlisle went on to note Porzingis has been "working around the clock" to treat his sore knee, and he added that he "desperately wants to play." However, the prospects of that happening appear relatively slim with only one day between games. After a 34-point, 13-rebound effort in Game 3, Porzingis has missed the Mavs' last two contests, including a lopsided, 154-111 loss in Game 5.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Questionable for Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (knee) is questionable for Thursday's Game 6 against the Clippers.

Porzingis has missed Games 4 and 5, and while the Mavericks were able to pull off a miracle victory via a last-second Luka Doncic three-pointer in Game 4, Dallas was dismantled in Game 5, losing 154-111. Ultimately, if the Mavericks want a real chance of upsetting the Clippers, Porzingis will need to be available. If the big man sits again Thursday, Trey Burke should continue seeing a boost in workload and role.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Sitting out Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Clippers, ESPN's Tim MacMahon reports.

While the Mavs were able to pull out the Game 4 win without Porzingis, this is a massive loss for a team that leans so heavily on Luka Doncic. When healthy, Porzingis has had a strong series, including a 34-point, 13-rebound effort in Game 3. The Mavs haven't said much about his knee injury, but they appear to be evaluating the 7-3 big man on a game-to-game basis.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Game-time call for Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (knee) is expected to be a game-time decision for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Clippers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

An MRI on the big man's sore right knee came back clean, but he's still dealing with enough discomfort that he was held out of Sunday's Game 4. The hope is that he'll be able to return to the lineup with another day of rest, but the Mavs may not make a final call until close to the 9 p.m. ET tip-off.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Officially questionable for Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Clippers, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The Mavs still haven't released the results of the big man's MRI, but the fact that he's questionable to play Tuesday is a positive indication that he's not dealing with any serious damage. Porzingis was initially expected to play in Sunday's overtime victory before being scratched just before tip-off. In Game 3 on Friday, Porzingis posted 34 points and 13 rebounds in 38 minutes.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Scratched ahead of Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mavericks scratched Porzingis from the lineup ahead of Sunday's Game 4 matchup with the Clippers due to a sore right knee.

Porzingis had been listed as probable on the injury report ahead of the contest with a bruised left heel, but Dallas included him in its initial starting five that was released within an hour before the 3:30 p.m. ET tipoff. However, the big man appears to experience problems with his knee during the Mavs' pregame warmups, prompting Dallas to rule him out in a late surprise. With Porzingis on the bench, Trey Burke will check into the starting five as part of a three-guard lineup featuring Luka Doncic and Tim Hardaway.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (heel) will start at center Sunday in Dallas' Game 4 matchup with the Clippers, Mavericks radio play-by-play broadcaster Chuck Cooperstein reports.

Dallas labeled Porzingis as probable on the injury report with a bruised left heel, so the big man never appeared in serious danger of sitting out Game 4. Through the first three contests of the series, Porzingis has averaged 23.7 points, 8.7 boards, 3.0 triples and 1.0 block in 31.3 minutes per game while shooting 52.5 percent from the floor and 52.9 percent from downtown.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Probable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (heel) is probable for Sunday's Game 4 against the Clippers, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Porzingis played through the bruised left heel during Game 3. He didn't seem bothered by it, recording 34 points, 13 rebounds, one block and one assist in 38 minutes during the loss.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Emphatic performance in Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis produced 34 points (11-18 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 7-7 FT), 13 rebounds, an assist and a block in 38 minutes during Friday's 130-122 Game 3 loss to the Clippers.

Porzingis played through a minor heel issue, pacing the Mavericks with 34 points on 61 percent shooting. Luka Doncic (ankle) triple-doubled in the loss but suffered an injury that could keep him out of Sunday's Game 4. If Doncic is unable to go, Porzingis is going to be very busy on the offensive end.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (heel) has been cleared for Friday's Game 3 against the Clippers.

Porzingis was considered probable for the contest, so this news is relatively unsurprising. Barring any setbacks, look for the big man to take on his usual workload. He has averaged 18.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks across 28.0 minutes through the first two games of the series, which of course includes an ejection in Game 1.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Probable for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis is considered probable for Friday's Game 3 against the Clippers due to a bruised left heel.

Porzingis was dealing with a knee issue coming into Game 2, but he was ultimately cleared and finished with 23 points, seven rebounds and a block in 36 minutes. This heel issue doesn't look to be anything overly concerning.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Strong performance Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis finished with 23 points (7-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 6-8 FT), seven rebounds and one block in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 127-114 victory over the Clippers.

Despite battling knee soreness, Porzingis was able to play heavy minutes in the Game 2 victory. After being ejected during Game 1, Porzingis managed to keep his emotions in check this time. The Mavericks certainly have the self-belief required to cause an upset here, and they will look to maintain the momentum come Game 3 on Friday.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Good to go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (knee) is available for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Clippers, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The 25-year-old was upgraded to probable on the injury report earlier in the day, so it's not a major surprise he'll be suiting up Wednesday. Porzingis picked up two technical fouls and was ejected after playing 20 minutes in Game 1, and he had 14 points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block before leaving the game.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Upgraded to probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (knee) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Clippers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Porzingis was ejected from Game 1 after 20 minutes as a result of two technical foul calls. He landed on the injury report afterward, dealing with irritation in his right knee -- the same knee that cost him 10 straight games in late December and early January. Porzingis was originally labeled questionable, but he presumably tested things out in the morning or early afternoon and felt good.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Questionable with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis is questionable for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Clippers with right knee soreness.

Porzingis, who was ejected from the Game 1 loss and played just 19 minutes, apparently tweaked his knee before his night ended. With Game 2 set to tip off at 9 p.m. ET, more information about Porzingis' status should become available Wednesday morning or afternoon once he's able test the knee out. If Porzingis ends up sidelined, more minutes would be funneled to Maxi Kleber, Dorian Finney-Smith and Boban Marjanovic.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Ejected from Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis posted 19 points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot across 19 minutes in Monday's 118-110 Game 1 loss to the Clippers.

Porzingis was ejected in the third quarter after he tangled with Marcus Morris, resulting in his second technical foul of the game. He was charged with his first technical after contesting a foul call that he believed was a clean block. The big man's ejection shifted the momentum toward the Clippers, and the eventual outcome could have been quite different had Porzingis remained in the game. It was a lucky break for the Clippers, who trailed by five points before the high-scoring big man got the boot. Porzingis will return for what should be an exciting Game 2.

Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (heel) is in the starting lineup for Monday's Game 1 against the Clippers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

As expected, Porzingis will start at power forward in Game 1 of the playoffs after missing the Mavericks' season finale due to a lingering left heel bruise. Over the six seeding games in which he appeared, Porzingis averaged a tremendous 30.5 points and 9.5 rebounds.
