Kristaps Porzingis (knee) returning for Mavericks on Wednesday

Dallas Mavericks forward Kristaps Porzingis will play Wednesday in the team's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

What It Means:

Porzingis has missed time due to a knee injury, but he's been given the all-clear to suit up against the shorthanded Pelicans. Head coach Rick Carlisle said that the Latvian big will be on a minutes limit. It's unclear if Porzingis will start, but either way, Willie Cauley-Stein should see a dip in playing time.

Our models project Porzingis for 17.8 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 33.0 FanDuel points across 30.3 minutes of action.
