The New York Knicks have announced that forward Kristaps Porzingis and guard Tim Hardaway Jr. will not travel with the team to Indiana to face the Pacers.
Porzingis is dealing with a right ankle sprain while Hardaway Jr. has a stress injury to his lower left leg.
Jeff Hornacek said that Kristaps Porzingis will not travel to Indiana. Tim Hardaway Jr. is having soreness in his shin and he underwent tests. Hornacek said Hardaway Jr.’s current ailment is unrelated to the plantar fasciitis he dealt with last month.
