GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Kristaps Porzingis doesn’t have a timetable on his return from ACL recovery, and didn’t rule out sitting out the entire 2018-19 season if necessary.
“I’m hungry and I want to be back on the court as soon as possible,” the 7-foot-3 unicorn said Monday at Knicks’ Media Day in his first public comments since the spring. “It’s been a long process. I’m getting itchy and I want to be back on the court as soon as possible. But it won’t happen until I’m 110 percent and medically cleared.”
He added: “Timetable, there’s no timetable yet. We’re moving forward and progressing every day. Whenever I’m ready, I’m going to be back.”
