Kristaps Porzingis will be held out of Tuesday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies, but could return on Wednesday against the New Orleans Pelicans, according to Rick Carlisle.
Porzingis has been out due to right knee soreness.
“KP is going to be out tomorrow, but we would like to have him ready to play against New Orleans. [We] just feel that the extra day, particularly with the practice today, is very helpful for him. But again, that’s all subject to how he’s feeling and those kinds of things," said Carlisle on Monday.
Porzingis, who has missed 28 games so far this season, last played on April 29.
Carlisle added that it was important for Porzingis to see game minutes before the playoffs.
