Celtics receive positive news on potential Porzingis return timetable

Out of all the possible options this is one the better outcomes for the Celtics. Porzingis could return in as soon as three weeks according to some thought (Giannis has been out with the same issue for 3 weeks and has now been "upgraded" to "doubtful," hinting that his return is close.) though I wouldn't bet too much on that. The key is that there is now at least a realistic chance the Celtics would be back to full strength if they make the NBA Finals which begins five weeks from Thursday. The odds of the Celtics winning a title greatly increase with Porzingis on the floor than with him sidelined.
