Kristaps Porzingis popped up as doubtful for Wednesday’s game against the Mavs due to a sore right shoulder.
This is terrible timing as he has been a second round play and it could even impact what the Mavs do now that they don’t have to worry about Porzingis. The Mavs will probably look more toward Zaza Pachulia and Salah Mejri to handle Robin Lopez, and could easily turn to David Lee now that Derrick Williams and Kyle O’Quinn are bound to play more minutes. Justin Anderson is still a good fit to cover Carmelo Anthony, but Dwight Powell’s stock takes a hit with this news.
