TORONTO - Kristaps Porzingis sat at his locker Friday morning with a gray compression sleeve extending from bicep nearly to his wrist on his right arm.
Pascal Siakam got the defensive assignment after Serge Ibaka was ruled out and did a tremendous job of pressuring the 7-foot-3 Porzingis.
New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis (6) drives to the basket against Charlotte Hornets guard Malik Monk (1) during second half at Madison Square Garden.
Porzingis didn’t use the elbow as an excuse, but he and Knicks’ coach Jeff Hornacek pointed out that teams are beginning to defend him differently as he has excelled this season in taking over for Carmelo Anthony as the Knicks’ primary offensive option.
