Kristaps Porzingis is making progress from ACL surgery
It’s still uncertain as to whether or not New York Knicks superstar Kristaps Porzingis will suit up this season after suffering a torn ACL this past February.
The good news is that he’s been a big part of training camp as he helps his young teammates both on and off the court by sharing his own knowledge. He’s even going as far as getting water for them.
Porzingis recently sat down for an interview with MSG Network and said that his knee is close to being back to normal, now that he’s seven months removed from surgery.

Of course this is great news, but doesn’t mean Porzingis will play this season.
The most important thing for the Knicks is to not rush KP given the fact that this team isn’t ready to win a championship. So it doesn’t matter if he plays this season.
The only thing that matters is making sure that Porzingis builds the strength back up in his knee that he needs to play basketball at a high level. The last thing he needs is to re-injure it or suffer a setback.
The good news is that Porzingis continues to make progress and continues to hang out around the team when they’re not on the road.
It’s been reported that KP will not travel with the team, which makes sense given the nature of his rehab.
