Top Kristaps Porzingis News

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Explodes for 38 points in loss

    Porzingis accumulated 38 points (11-20 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 12-13 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 33 minutes before fouling out of Saturday's 125-123 loss to the Nets.

    The Wizards got off to a dominant start and led by 20 points before crumbling in the second half. Despite the meltdown, Porzingis notched an excellent fantasy line in a game in which Bradley Beal (foot) sat out and Kyle Kuzma (ankle) departed early in the first half. In his three games since returning from a three-game absence due to an ankle injury of his own, Porzingis has been as good as ever with averages of 29.0 points, 7.3 boards, 4.3 assists, 2.7 blocks, 2.7 three-pointers and 1.0 steals in 32.7 minutes.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Solid all-around performance

    Porzingis closed Friday's 124-116 loss to the Trail Blazers with 32 points (9-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 11-12 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one block over 35 minutes.

    Porzingis put in a solid all-around performance in Friday's contest in which the Wizards blew a 20-point lead to Portland. The Unicorn has now put up two solid performances on the heels of missing three games with an ankle injury and looks to be back at full health. Poringis has now hit the 30-point mark in eight games this season and has top-20 fantasy value for season-long leagues with his ability to score, rebound and defend.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Wednesday's game postponed

    Porzingis and the Wizards will not play Wednesday against the Pistons, as the game has been postponed due to weather-related flight issues, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    The Pistons are still in Dallas as of Wednesday morning after facing the Mavericks on Monday. Porzingis' next chance to play arrives Friday against the Trail Blazers.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Stellar performance in return

    Porzingis (ankle) recorded 17 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists, five blocks and three steals in 30 minutes during Monday's 127-106 win over the Spurs.

    Porzingis showed little rust in his return from a three-game absence due to a sprained left ankle, as he not only knocked down more than half of his shot attempts but also set a new season high with five blocks. The 27-year-old ended up logging more minutes at center due to the absence of Daniel Gafford (illness), so Porzingis could lose out on some rim-protecting chances if he moves back to power forward in the event Gafford is cleared to play Wednesday in Detroit. Even if that's the case, Porzingis should still continue to be a solid source of blocks while also offering the upside to increase his production in the scoring column.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Will play Monday

    Porzingis (ankle) isn't listed on the Wizards' injury report ahead of Monday's matchup against the Spurs.

    Porzingis missed three straight contests due to a sprained left ankle but will return to action Monday. Before suffering the injury during a Jan. 21 win over the Magic, the sharpshooting big man had scored at least 20 points in nine of his last 10 appearances, posting 23.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.5 blocks in 33.2 minutes during that stretch. Porzingis may garner a slightly reduced role following his three-game absence, but he'll still be one of the Wizards' go-to playmakers while on the court.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Out Saturday

    Porzingis (ankle) is out Saturday against the Pelicans, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.

    Porzingis will sit out a third straight game due to a sprained left ankle, though it was encouraging that he was initially listed as doubtful rather than out. His next chance to play arrives Monday against the Spurs.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Listed as doubtful

    Porzingis (ankle) is doubtful for Saturday's matchup against the Pelicans.

    Porzingis suffered a left ankle sprain Monday and was initially considered week-to-week, but Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN relayed that the sharpshooting big man could return to the Wizards' lineup within two weeks. Porzingis remains unlikely to play anytime soon, but the fact that he wasn't immediately ruled out for Saturday's contest is a step in the right direction. Following Saturday's matchup in New Orleans, Washington will begin a four-game week Monday in San Antonio.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Could be back within two weeks

    The Wizards have optimism that Porzingis could be ready to return to the lineup within two weeks while he recovers from the left ankle sprain he suffered in Saturday's 138-118 win over the Magic, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Washington announced Monday that Porzingis is being viewed as week-to-week, but if Wojnarowski's report proves to be accurate, the team could begin evaluating the big man's status on a game-by-game basis toward the end of next week. For however long Porzingis ends up sidelined, the Wizards are likely to rely more heavily on Daniel Gafford, Deni Avdija and Taj Gibson to absorb more minutes in the frontcourt.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Considered week-to-week

    The Wizards announced Monday that Porzingis will be listed as week-to-week with a sprained left ankle.

    Porzingis sprained his ankle during Saturday's win over Orlando, and though head coach Wes Unseld Jr. sounded optimistic about the big man's status after the game, Porzingis looks on track to miss the entirety of Washington's upcoming five-game road trip. Deni Avdija looks to be the top candidate to pick up increased run for Washington while Porzingis is unavailable.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Getting ankle examined Sunday

    Wizards head coach Wes Unseld Jr. said after Saturday's 138-118 win over the Magic that Porzingis will have his sprained left ankle re-evaluated Sunday, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports. "I don't think it's too bad, but fingers crossed," Unseld said of Porzingis' injury.

    After sustaining the injury in the third quarter of Saturday's contest, Porzingis didn't return to the game and finished the night with 17 points (3-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 10-10 FT), six rebounds and one block in 23 minutes. Though Unseld's comments imply hope that Porzingis won't be in store for a long-term absence, the upcoming evaluation will shed light on a potential timeline for the 27-year-old's recovery. If Porzingis is forced to miss the Wizards' next game Tuesday in Dallas, Unseld could turn to a combination of Rui Hachimura, Deni Avdija, Daniel Gafford and Taj Gibson to absorb the big man's minutes.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Won't return Saturday

    Porzingis suffered a sprained left ankle during Saturday's game against the Magic and won't return, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports. He closes the game with 17 points (3-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 10-10 FT), six rebounds and one block in 23 minutes.

    Porzingis will have a couple of days to rest up and recover from the injiury, as the Wizards don't play again until Tuesday at Dallas. If Porzingis is forced to miss time, more minutes should be in store for Deni Avdija and Rui Hachimura. Daniel Gafford and Taj Gibson could see more time at center as well.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Heads to locker room Saturday

    Porzingis (undisclosed) headed to the locker room during the second half of Saturday's game against the Magic, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.

    Porzingis was spotted limping and went straight to the locker room with 5:17 remaining in the third quarter. Rui Hachimura should be in line for more minutes if Porzingis can't return.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Records 15th double-double

    Porzingis totaled 22 points (6-17 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists and two blocks across 33 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's 116-105 win over the Knicks.

    Porzingis had a solid first half with 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting from the field to go along with four rebounds and four assists. He struggled from that point on, however, going 1-of-6 in the second half and 4-of-4 from the free-throw line for another seven points. The power forward did add seven second-half boards, four of which came on the offensive end, to notch his third double-double in his last five games, and he's now recorded at least 20 points in four straight.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Big day against Warriors

    Porzingis contributed 32 points (9-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 11-12 FT), five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 37 minutes during Monday's 127-118 loss to Golden State.

    The 27-year-old had his best scoring performance since he poured in 41 against Minnesota on Nov. 28, but it wasn't enough to keep pace with Stephen Curry and company. Porzingis has delivered 20-plus points in eight of his last nine games, averaging 23.3 points, 8.0 boards, 2.2 threes, 1.6 assists and 1.4 blocks over that stretch as he tries to cover for the absence of Bradley Beal (hamstring).

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Subpar effort in return

    Porzingis registered 21 points (6-19 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds and one assist over 35 minutes during Friday's 112-108 loss to the Knicks.

    Porzingis ended with 21 points but offered very little else in a rusty performance. Of course, he gets a pass here, given how strong he has been thus far this season. He is currently putting up top-20 value in 12-team formats, and more importantly, has missed only four games. Managers should be feeling pretty good about drafting him, and given his track record, he should look to bounce back against the Warriors on Monday.

  • Wizards' Kristaps Porzingis: Receives green light

    Porzingis (ribs) will play in Friday's matchup with the Knicks.

    Per Ava Wallace of The Washington Post, Porzingis will not face any restrictions in his return to action. The big man makes his way back from a single-game absence due to a rib contusion and is slated to take on a primary role with Bradley Beal (hamstring) sidelined. With Porzingis back on the floor, Anthony Gill and Deni Avdija will likely return to their typical roles.
