    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.”

    Mika Adams-Wood, the 6-foot-3, 175-pound point guard from New Hampton (N.H.) and the Albany City Rocks, committed to Nebraska.

    The left-hander also considered Nevada, UMass, George Mason, Siena, UNC-Greensboro, Buffalo and East Carolina.

    “They are in one of the best leagues in college, in my opinion,” he said. “I’ll be performing on a big stage every night.”

    As for what skillset he brings, Adams-Woods said, “I’m a true point guard and I can run a team and score as well.”

    He is Nebraska’s first commit in 2019.
