Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) practices for Knicks on Sunday

New York Knicks forward/center Kristaps Porzingis (bruised left thigh) practiced on Sunday and said he hopes to play versus the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday.

What It Means:

Porzingis sat out Thursday's game with the thigh injury but seems optimistic that he will be able to give it a go on Monday night. If he does, Willy Hernangomez and Lance Thomas will take hits to their playing time.

Porzingis is averaging 18.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game this season.
