Analysis: Hopefully this will get Porzingis going after he'd averaged just 14.1 per game in his first nine upon returning from injury.
Jan. 31 2:55 PM PT3:55 PM MT4:55 PM CT5:55 PM ET22:55 GMT6:55 3:55 PM MST5:55 PM EST2:55 UAE (+1)23:5517:55 ET4:55 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis had 19 points and 12 rebounds Wednesday at Brooklyn in his return after missing Tuesday's loss at Washington with an illness.

Jan. 27 6:47 PM PT7:47 PM MT8:47 PM CT9:47 PM ET2:47 GMT10:47 7:47 PM MST9:47 PM EST6:47 UAE (+1)03:4721:47 ET8:47 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis had 18 points and three blocks Friday against Charlotte.

Analysis: The 21-year-old hasn't done much in three games since returning from an Achilles injury, averaging 12.3 points. However, he hasn't played a ton, averaging less than 29 minutes. A good sign Monday, though, was he hit a pair of 3-pointers after going 0 for 6 in the previous two games.
Jan. 12 2:20 PM PT3:20 PM MT4:20 PM CT5:20 PM ET22:20 GMT6:20 3:20 PM MST5:20 PM EST2:20 UAE (+1)23:2017:20 ET4:20 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis is available to play against Washington on Thursday after an MRI revealed no structural damage to his sore left Achilles tendon.
Analysis: It was feared Porzingis could be out for an extended period, and he certainly wasn't expected to play in this game, so this was terrific news for the Knicks. The blossoming big man had missed four straight games and seven of New York's last 11 contests with the injury.
Jan. 9 6:20 PM PT7:20 PM MT8:20 PM CT9:20 PM ET2:20 GMT10:20 7:20 PM MST9:20 PM EST6:20 UAE (+1)03:2021:20 ET8:20 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis was just 3 for 13 for nine points in Monday's 110-96 loss to the Pelicans.

Dec. 30 7:54 PM PT8:54 PM MT9:54 PM CT10:54 PM ET3:54 GMT11:54 8:54 PM MST10:54 PM EST7:54 UAE (+1)04:5422:54 ET9:54 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis kept up his recent productive run with 21 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks in Friday's loss at New Orleans.
Analysis: The second-year forward has scored 21 points or more in five of his last six games and is averaging 8.7 rebounds over that span. Porzingis has been piling up the blocks as well of late, notching 14 rejections over his past five contests.
Dec. 28 7:12 PM PT8:12 PM MT9:12 PM CT10:12 PM ET3:12 GMT11:12 8:12 PM MST10:12 PM EST7:12 UAE (+1)04:1222:12 ET9:12 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis had 24 points, hitting 4 of 8 from 3-point range, to go with eight rebounds and three blocks Wednesday. However, he missed two key free throws late in a loss to Atlanta.
Analysis: Porzingis has gone 12 for 21 from beyond the arc over the past four games while blocking 12 shots, though he does have 16 turnovers in that span after committing five Wednesday.
Dec. 25 12:23 PM PT1:23 PM MT2:23 PM CT3:23 PM ET20:23 GMT4:23 1:23 PM MST3:23 PM EST0:23 UAE (+1)21:2315:23 ET2:23 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis had 22 points in Sunday's loss to the Celtics.
Analysis: Porzingis was playing for the first time since limping to the locker room Thursday with a right knee injury. New York Newsday reported that he later returned to the sidelines and could have returned to the game if needed.
Dec. 22 7:40 PM PT8:40 PM MT9:40 PM CT10:40 PM ET3:40 GMT11:40 8:40 PM MST10:40 PM EST7:40 UAE (+1)04:4022:40 ET9:40 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis had to leave Thursday's game against the Lakers with a bruised right knee with 11:58 to play and did not return. He's expected to be fine for Sunday's game.

Analysis: Porzingis, who scored eight points on 4-of-13 shooting in Thursday's loss to Golden State, is 11 for 32 from the field and 1 for 8 from downtown in his last two games. Zinger was surely happy to get away from Draymond Green, and a return home after a five-game trip should help get him back on track.
Dec. 13 8:51 PM PT9:51 PM MT10:51 PM CT11:51 PM ET4:51 GMT12:51 9:51 PM MST11:51 PM EST8:51 UAE05:5123:51 ET10:51 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis racked up 34 points, eight rebounds, three steals and three blocks before fouling out in overtime of Tuesday's loss at Phoenix.

Analysis: Porzingis has been feeling discomfort in his right knee, but the Latvian big man shook it off for another impressive effort that included seven blocked shots, tying his career high.
Dec. 10 9:47 PM PT10:47 PM MT11:47 PM CT12:47 AM ET5:47 GMT13:47 10:47 PM MST12:47 AM EST9:47 UAE06:470:47 ET11:47 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis went just 6 of 19 from the field Friday in Sacramento, but still contributed 17 points and 10 rebounds to the Knicks' 103-100 victory.
Analysis: It's the third double-double in four games for the Latvian forward, who's averaging 9.8 rebounds during that stretch. Porzingis' shooting struggles continue to linger, though, as he's made just 23.1 percent of his 3-point tries and gone 31.3 percent overall over his past five outings.
Dec. 6 6:20 PM PT7:20 PM MT8:20 PM CT9:20 PM ET2:20 GMT10:20 7:20 PM MST9:20 PM EST6:20 UAE (+1)03:2021:20 ET8:20 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis had 14 points and 12 rebounds Tuesday but continued to struggle from the field.

Nov. 3 10:03 PM PT11:03 PM MT12:03 AM CT1:03 AM ET5:03 GMT13:03 10:03 PM MST12:03 AM EST9:03 UAE06:031:03 ET11:03 PM CTNaN:� - Porzingis had three points in 28 minutes and didn't hit a field goal in the Knicks' 118-99 loss to the Rockets on Wednesday.
