The Celtics season will likely go as far as Kristaps Porzingis goes, due to both his impact on the court, and Boston' lack of quality big man depth. After leaving this afternoon's game early, Porzingis is scheduled to undergo an MRI tomorrow. This is the point where people will likely either think the sky is falling and it's something very serious or that it's much ado about nothing.
Early signs are at least promising as Porzingis doesn’t think the injury is too serious," and he of course has had plenty of experience with his own injuries. The word "calf" sounds minor, but it can sometimes mean a serious injury if it's coming from a neighboring part of the leg/feet.
Kristaps Porzingis tells the Globe he’ll have an MRI on his left calf to tomorrow but doesn’t think the injury is too serious. Said he felt a tweak running the floor. Did not slip. #Celtics#Magic.
