Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek introduced that Kristaps Porzingis will play in opposition to the Boston Celtics on Thursday.
“KP says he’s taking part in, so he feels good,” Hornacek stated. “The motion that he was having earlier than that he felt (in his knee), he did not really feel it tonight, so he’ll play.”
New York has been with out its star participant for the final two video games after Porzingis suffered a knee damage within the group’s win over Brooklyn on Dec. 14. The Knicks went 1-1 in that span.
Porzingis has missed seven video games this season and the Knicks are 1-6 with out him in these contests.
The Knicks look to avenge their early season 110-89 loss they suffered to Boston on Oct. 24.
“Hopefully we play higher than we did that first time round,” Hornacek stated. “We’re nonetheless attempting to determine issues out at that time and we had been struggling a bit bit. However I feel our guys are studying the offense a bit bit higher and issues we would like defensively, so hopefully we give a greater recreation tonight.”
