Kristaps Porzingis Injury Update ahead of matchup against New Orleans Pelicans


After suffering a sprained left ankle, Kristaps Porzingis’ injury update before the matchup against New Orleans Pelicans might be an encouraging sign for the Washington Wizards. Trying to pull off a miracle by reaching the playoff berths, the Wizards might get their marquee man sooner than expected as they lock horns against a star-studded side on Saturday.

To bring everyone on the same page – the mighty big man went down against the Orlando Magic last Sunday. While he may not feature in the game against the New Orleans Pelicans after being labeled day-to-day in the Injury Reserve list, Porzingis could return earlier than his expected timeline.

However, there is a minimal chance that he might even get some time on the court against the Pelicans on Saturday. However, those are all speculations as his status has been upgraded by the Washington Wizards.

Kristaps Porzingis injury updates revealed

The Washington Wizards would be wanting Porzingis to return in time as they are placed 10th in the Eastern Conference with a 22-26 record, tied with Chicago Bulls for the last berth in the Play-In Tournament.

That being said, there is no guarantee that Kristaps Porzingis will be able to come back within the next few games for his shorthanded side. After all, this marquee big man does not exactly have a stellar injury history under his belt.

Nevertheless, it’s still an encouraging sign that he’s now been tagged as doubtful just a week into his ankle sprain. Hopefully, he can help Kyle Kuzma in time on the court.
