Kristaps Porzingis was scratched from Wednesday's game after feeling some pain and discomfort during the pregame warmups.
Porzingis was initially cleared to play after getting through a workout without any of those symptoms on Tuesday, but the Mavs decided to shut it down after he reported the issue last night. Obviously Dallas will take extreme caution with one of their core pieces, though it is definitely troubling that this was initially called a "minor issue" and has now snowballed into a two-week absence.
