Luka reveals Kristaps Porzingis is “Getting that Confidence” From His Injury

Kristaps Porzingis and Luka Doncic

Kristaps Porzingis has had an up and down career in the NBA. When he was drafted by the New York Knicks no one expected him to become a star caliber player. But he proved everyone wrong with his performances in New York.

However, after spending a few seasons there, Porzingis and the Knicks’ relationship became sour. As a result, the Knicks traded him to the Mavericks in a blockbuster trade. In Dallas, Porzingis started to prove the Knicks wrong and he was still a sensational player.

But the only things that has been like a thorn in his path is constant injury trouble. Given his humongous stature, Kristaps Porzingis has missed a lot of games due to injuries. It was one of the reasons that the Knicks believed trading away Porzingis was the best decision.

Being fit is something that he is still working on. Due to that, the Mavericks are yet to reach their full potential this season.

The Latvian forward recently returned from another injury issue and was not in his top form. But in the Mavericks’ victory against the Spurs, Porzingis looked confident and in great touch. His teammate Luka Doncic gave an update about Porzingis’ recovery from the injury. Doncic said:

We are all progressing as a team. KP is playing a lot better, he’s getting the confidence from his injury and I think he going to still build his confidence and he’s going to be way better.”

It’s good to hear that Porzingis is getting back to his normal self. This is great news for Luka and the Mavs as a whole.
