Latest injury update on Boston Celtics star Kristaps Porzingis

Kristaps Porzingis is in his first season with the Boston Celtics and is coming off an All-Star caliber season.

He averaged 20.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.9 blocks per game while shooting 51.6% from the field and 37.5% from three-point range in 57 games.

However, Porzingis has missed each of the previous ten games.

On Thursday, head coach Joe Mazzulla provided the latest update on Porzingis (h/t Celtics on NBC Sports Boston).

Porzingis: “I know he’s getting better every day, I know he’s working hard. I’ll get more going down if he comes in today, but he’s making good progress and he’s working really hard to come back.”

Mazzulla also confirmed that there have been no setbacks.

On Wednesday, Porzingis sent one after on social media indicating that a return could be near.

Porzingis translated into English: “Thank you to everyone who supports and sympathizes throughout the season. I will be back in line soon. See you in the final ☘️ and then in the arena with your own 🇱🇻🙌”

The Celtics are the first seed in the Eastern Conference and had the best record in the NBA (64-18).

They defeated the Miami Heat, Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacrers in the first three rounds of the playoffs.

Game 1 of the NBA Finals takes place on June 6 in Boston.

Currently, the Celtics await the winner of the series between the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves (the Mavs lead that series 3-1 with Game 5 on Thursday).
