Porzingis expected to play in Saturday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets

Kristaps Porzingis is expected to be back on the court Saturday at 7:30 p.m. when the Dallas Mavericks play on the road against the high-flying Brooklyn Nets in a game that will be televised nationally on ABC.

Porzingis missed the previous three games with lower back stiffness, but went through a full practice session on Friday in New York without complications and is very anxious to be able to play again.

“Today I went through a full practice, and I felt pretty good,” Porzingis said. “I hope I can play tomorrow. It’s always tough to sit out and not be able to play.
