Kristaps Porzingis said he’s feeling as healthy as he’s ever felt entering training camp with the Dallas Mavericks.
“I feel great physically. I feel 100%. I feel probably better than I ever have in my life,” Porzingis told Tim MacMahon of ESPN.
In terms of load management for Porzingis, Rick Carlisle added that he’s going to be especially cautious on back-to-back nights.
“If I had a gun to my head, I would say that there’s a good chance that we will be very careful on back-to-backs, particularly to start the year…he may be insisting on playing, but I do believe in his case and in the case of any player like that, the Mavericks or whatever team is going to err on the side of caution,” said the Mavs coach.
Porzingis added that he and Luka Doncic could “be a nightmare for the teams going forward.”
