ANALYSIS: After undergoing surgery on his torn meniscus back in October, Porzingis is doing well in rehab and is on track for a return sometime in January. This is obviously great news for Mavericks fans as Dallas is a much more complete team when Kristaps is on the court. Porzingis is able to alleviate pressure from Luka Doncic as he is another guy that can create his own shot and catch fire in a hurry.
