Porzingis leaves due to ankle injury
ESPN’ reported on the 24th (Korean time) that Kristaps Porzingis of the Washington Wizards will be out for the time being due to an ankle injury.
Washington is a team with a triangular 안전놀이터 formation that leads to Bradley Beal, Kristaps Porzingis, and Kyle Kuzma. Unfortunately, it’s rare for all three players to play healthy at the same time this season.
The recent return of Bradley Beal brought the trio back together, but this time with Porzingis injured. Porzingis was involved in a loose ball fight during a game against Orlando on the 22nd, and left the court after sustaining an injury in which he twisted his left ankle while landing.
Porzingis has been averaging 22.1 points and 8.8 rebounds this season and has been a mainstay behind Washington’s goal. In particular, he, who has never played more than 60 games since his first two seasons in his debut, was in the midst of a relatively healthy season without injuries this season. He only missed 5 games before the match against Orlando.
Fortunately, Porzingis’ injury is not as serious as expected. Diagnosed with a sprained ankle, Porzingis has news that his colon won’t last very long. “There is optimism that Kristaps Porzingis could be back on the court in two weeks,” said ESPN.
Porzingis, who will be absent for the time being, will not be able to participate in the away game against Dallas on the 25th. If Dallas and Washington do not meet in the finals, Porzingis’ first trip to Dallas after his transfer is likely to happen next season.
