 Ian Begley of ESPN New York reports that Kristaps Porzingis is questionable for the New York Knicks game vs. the Toronto Raptors.

New York Knicks (18-22) forward Kristaps Porzingis has already missed four games this season due to a sore Achilles. Sunday afternoon could be his fifth.

According to Ian Begley of ESPN New York, Porzingis is questionable for New York’s divisional matchup with the Raptors.

Per Begley, even Porzingis doubted his ability to suit up Sunday.

The Knicks are just 1-3 in his absence and facing that obstacle against one of the league’s best offensive teams is daunting. They’ll need their best interior defender to have any chance.

The last time we saw Porzingis, he was getting props from Hall of Famer Allen Iverson.

The  Knicks need Porzingis back, but like Iverson said he’s headed in the right direction. They don’t want to compromise the future.

In 36 games, Porzingis is averaging 34.1 minutes, 19.4 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, and 1.4 assists on a slash line of .449/.402/.789.

The Knicks tip off against the Raptors at 3:00 p.m. ET.
