    Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Friday's game.

    Porzingis was set to play on Wednesday but got ruled out after warmups, and him being ruled out so early in the day is a disheartening development. A supposedly minor issue has led to a multi-week absence for KP now, and fantasy GMs just have to sit tight in the meantime. Maxi Kleber will continue to have standard-league appeal while Porzingis is on the mend.

    The Mavs are listing Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness) as questionable for Friday.

    Porzingis was cleared to play on Wednesday before feeling discomfort in warmups, so we wouldn't make any plans around KP's presence until Friday's pregame activities are complete.

    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.

    In a surprising twist, Kristaps Porzingis (knee) will not be playing on Wednesday.

    The Mavs are opting to err on the side of caution here and want him at an optimum level of health before he makes his return.

    Kristaps Porzingis (knee) will play on Wednesday, but coach Rick Carlisle said he isn't sure how many minutes the big man will play but will be "a bit of an ease-in."

    Porzingis owners get some good news but may want to play a wait-and-see approach to check how he does in his first game back. Both Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber will take hits in value.

    Even though there has been no official word yet, Kristaps Porzingis said that he plans to play on Wednesday against the Kings.

    This is a decision that will come down to Rick Carlisle and the medical staff so we should get another update later today. The window of opportunity seems to be closing on Maxi Kleber who will be likely relegated to a bench role once Porzingis in back in the lineup.

    Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness) will not play on Tuesday.

    Porzingis is taking shots during the pregame and reportedly has a good chance to return tomorrow, so check back for that. Maxi Kleber will get another game of unimpeded run but this might be the end of the line.

    Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness) remains questionable to play against the Warriors on Tuesday, but Tim MacMahon of ESPN is reporting that "it is more likely" Porzingis returns on Wednesday against the Kings.

    It's looking more and more likely that Porzingis will return a bit ahead of schedule after Rick Carlisle called him iffy for the upcoming back-to-back set. Continue to watch Porzingis' status as we get closer to game time.

    Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.

    This comes as a surprise after Rick Carlisle called him "iffy" for the next two games but maybe KP can return ahead of schedule. Maxi Kleber's run may be coming to an end.

    Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness) practiced on Monday but is still being ruled out for the next two games.

    The report also makes a note that he "is not feeling well still," but it's unclear whether that refers to his knee soreness or a possible bout with illness. Regardless, his status remains unchanged. It's good to see him back on the court, though.

    Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness) will miss at least two more games, with his next chance to play coming Tuesday against the Warriors.

    Even if Porzingis is ready to return then, expect him to only play in half of Dallas' back-to-back set on Tuesday and Wednesday. Maxi Kleber and Dwight Powell will continue to see more opportunity in the meantime. KP reportedly had PRP injection in his right knee but that's not expected to extend his timeline at all, as it's become a fairly common treatment.

    The Mavs are listing Kristaps Porzingis (sore right knee) as out for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

    While there is optimism that Porzingis can return this week, Wednesday will mark the big man's fifth straight absence. Maxi Kleber, Dwight Powell and Justin Jackson will continue to see extended minutes in Porzingis' absence.

    Kristaps Porzingis (sore right knee) has been ruled out of Monday's game versus the Bulls.

    Porzingis said he is optimistic that he will be able to return this week, but Maxi Kleber is worth streaming until then.

    According to Kristaps Porzingis (sore right knee), he does not believe he will be back for Monday's game vs. the Bulls, but hopefully vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    With Porzingis likely on the sidelines again, Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber should fare well on Monday for some short-term value.

    Kristaps Porzingis (sore right knee) will not play in Saturday's matchup vs. the Hornets.

    He was unlikely to play in this game but the good news is that he should be back next week after missing just three games. Maxi Kleber is still the biggest beneficiary of KP missing time and should be valuable for at least one more game.
