Knicks to re-evaluate Kristaps Porzingis in mid-February

North Jersey

Kristaps Porzingis is making progress in his return from knee surgery, but there is still no specific timeframe for his return to game action.

Knicks president Steve Mills addressed Porzingis' status and other topics Friday afternoon.

Porzingis, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on Feb. 6, recently had an evaluation by the team's medical staff. The evaluation confirmed that Porzingis' knee is healing well and once when the forward reaches remaining rehab benchmarks, Porzingis will advance to on-court team drills and activities. 

Porzingis will be re-evaluated again in mid-February.

"We’re really excited and happy with the progress that KP is making," Mills said. "We went through a series of benchmarks that we had planned on doing."

Porzingis has gotten to the point where he's able to do on-court drills and he can go through 45-minute sessions with members of the team's coaching staff.
