Celtics' Kristaps Porzingis doubtful to return with calf injury



MIAMI -- Boston Celtics center Kristaps Porzingis hobbled off the court and into the locker room Monday night and is considered doubtful to return after suffering a right calf injury during Boston's Game 4 with the Heat.

Porzingis will undergo imaging on Tuesday but early indications are that he hasn't sustained an Achilles injury, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Porzingis appeared to tweak something after catching a pass from Jaylen Brown late in the second period. Upon getting the ball, he started driving toward his left but then grimaced before quickly giving the ball back to Brown and coming up lame in the middle of the play.
