Both Arron Afflalo and Kevin Seraphin participated fully at practice today and have a very good chance of making a go of it tomorrow against the Celtics.
Arron Afflalo (hamstring) and Kevin Seraphin (knee) are practicing today. Afflalo seems to be a full participant for the 1st time in 2 weeks— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) October 15, 2015
Should all go well, expect Afflalo to start. If I had to guess Lance Thomas will start again, and Seraphin will be the first big off the bench.
Fisher suggests that Afflalo and Seraphin will play. Also hints that Afflalo will start.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) October 15, 2015
Sadly Kristaps Porzingis did not participate and he is probably being fitted for a flex-foot cheetah. Afflalo must have undergone a hamstring restringing surgery, otherwsie I'd assume he would also need a flex-foot cheetah.
Along with Kristaps, Kyle O'Quinn sat out today. Probably just for rest more than anything.This could generate a chance for Derek Fisher to take a longer look at Seraphin and see who he has the most cohesion with. Porzingis says he feels 100% if thats the type of thing that matters to you. It obviously doesn't matter to the Knicks.
Porzingis said he is 100 percent but the Knicks are being cautious. He doesn't think he'll play tomorrow but maybe Saturday.— Al Iannazzone (@Al_Iannazzone) October 15, 2015
By my math, there's clearly 10% missing in this equation. Prozingis displaying early signs of mental fatigue lets the casual fan know that they've been hoodwinked. I'm sure Marc Berman will keep him on his mental toes as the year progresses.
