The Dallas Mavericks are leaving the door open for Kristaps Porzingis to possibly return to the team should they upset the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Mavs are currently down 3-2 in the series. 

Porzingis has been ruled out for the first round due to a lateral meniscus tear of his right knee.

Porzingis is currently undergoing PRP injections as part of his treatment plan.
