Mavs' Porzingis says knee ready for game after false start

DALLAS (AP) Kristaps Porzingis stopped short of saying he was ready to return from a right knee issue that has sidelined him for 10 games because the Dallas Mavericks forward was a late scratch the last time he thought he was close.

The 7-foot-3 Latvian also says he has recovered from an illness that helped extend the longer-than-expected absence, another example of the caution Dallas has shown since trading for Porzingis when he was still recovering from a major left knee injury.

Porzingis went through practice with no limitations Sunday, making him optimistic about returning Tuesday against the Los Angeles Clippers. He thought he would play at Sacramento last Wednesday, but soreness in the right knee resurfaced.
