Kristaps Porzingis injured his right index finger; X-rays are negative

Take my finger, Lord!

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Knicks are in the midst of a brutal stretch of games, and haven't exactly covered themselves in glory this past week. The last thing they need is an injury and OH DEAR GOD NO!

Kristaps apparently hurt himself in the first half of New York's 117-98 loss to Atlanta. How could something like this happen on Boxing Day? OK, let's all calm down and wait for the X-ray:

Phew. We shouldn't be surprised that Kristaps shrugged off this injury ... he's Latvian, after all. Assuming he plays Sunday against the Celtics, his shooting form will bear watching. The Baltic Cobra hasn't exactly set the nets on fire of late, and a nagging injury could set him back even further.

And so I beg of you, dear friends: cut off your right index finger, stuff it in an envelope, and mail it to:

The Mecca of Basketball, NY
'Murica 696969

Your friendly neighborhood postal worker will know what to do!
