Kristaps Porzingis has returned to the bench after a contused right knee sent him to the locker room during Thursday’s game against the Magic.
Porzingis is riding a bike on the sideline and we’d expect him to return to the game if the outcome is close. We’ll keep you updated.
Knicks are saying Kristaps Porzingis "has a contused right knee and is questionable to return."

Update: Porzingis could have returned and finished with 12 points, four rebounds, one steal, two blocks and two threes. Owners can consider him healthy unless we get a report to the contrary.
Hornacek said Porzingis was available to return. But with the Knicks holding a comfortable lead he didn't want to push it.
