Kristaps Porzingis suffered a left leg contusion; X-Rays are negative

Please be OK.

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Rookie super-gentleman Kristaps Porzingis missed Saturday night's game against the Detroit Pistons with what is being described as a left leg contusion.

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!

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.
