Kristaps Porzingis is on the verge of returning from a sore right knee that has sidelined him the last seven games.
The Mavericks’ 7-3 center-forward on Monday went through most of practice, the first time he’s done so since the knee flared up on New Year’s Eve. His status has been upgraded to questionable going into Tuesday’s visit to Golden State, according to the Mavericks.
In addition to the knee, Porzingis also has been dealing with a lingering illness.
“KP got through most of practice,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “He’s not feeling well again, so he isn’t doing great.
