Rookie super-gentleman Kristaps Porzingis missed Saturday night's game against the Detroit Pistons with what is being described as a left leg contusion.
Knicks say KP injury happened last night in Boston, but he's not sure when. He was available entire night, so that's a good sign.— Laura Albanese (@AlbaneseLaura) March 6, 2016
Boston is evil. The Celtics are evil. Tommy Heinsohn is evil.
Apparently the injury was serious enough to send young Kristaps to the X-Ray machine. The good news: NEGATIVE, BABY!
X-rays on KP's leg were negative, Knicks say.— Laura Albanese (@AlbaneseLaura) March 6, 2016
Team says Porzingis told Knicks his leg was hurting this afternoon...thus the X-Rays.— Laura Albanese (@AlbaneseLaura) March 6, 2016
This is only the second game Kristaps has missed in 2015-16, and the first one due to injury (He missed a game with an upper respiratory illness). Derrick Williams started the game at forward in place of Porzingis.
Get well soon, you magnificent Latvian.
