David Fizdale Says Kristaps Porzings Isn't Sprinting Yet; He Disagrees

Kristaps Porzingis

But at this point, the Knicks don't have a firm grasp on whether Porzingis will return at all this season.

They have a savvy new head coach in David Fizdale, and they're working to develop the young talent they've assembled. It hasn't translated to many wins, but it's a fun group to watch in NY, and it should inspire hope for the future. That sort of injury can often take a while to fully heal, and the organization is in no rush to bring him back before he's ready.

A short time later, he posted photos showing himself SPRINTING on a track - an apparent response to Fizdale.

As of now, Porzingis is not traveling with the team for road games.

"Just mentally for me", Fizdale said. The Knicks do not have a specific timetable for his return. He's been shooting and joggingly lightly, which is where he was at during training camp. Nine months have passed since the procedure, and Porzingis has yet to begin running, according to the New York Daily News. "I'm not even planning on KP at all", Fizdale said.

"I'm looking at these guys right now. I'd rather be focused on the day-to-day task with these guys, and when he gets back that'll just be a gift for me".

The Knicks declined to sign Porzingis to a rookie extension prior to last month's deadline - a move that will give NY an extra $10 million in cap space in the summer of 2019 and will make Porzingis a restricted free agent in the offseason.
