Kristaps Porzingis practiced in full on Friday after missing Wednesday's game against the Magic in Orlando due to a bruised left elbow and sprained right ankle.
He is expected to play on Saturday against the Kings, head coach Jeff Hornacek told reporters.
It's the elbow that is more of a concern and may necessitate offseason surgery, the New York Post's Marc Berman recently reported.
Porzingis has battled bursitis in his elbow for years, which he aggravated during Tuesday night's win against Charlotte.
"When I hit it again it just swells up and it's sensitive and I can't stretch my arm,'' Porzingis said. "It bothers me a little bit but not that bad. It's always, I have to get the swelling down, and then I'll be fine again. But I think once the season's over. I might have to do something about it. I just can't keep going like this every year."
Porzingis scored 28 points during the Knicks' win over the Hornets on Tuesday night, playing 29 minutes.
Head coach Jeff Hornacek said after the game that Porzingis, who played 38 minutes on Sunday night against the Pacers while scoring a career-high 40 points, looked a bit fatigued during Tuesday night's game.
The 22-year-old Porzingis had played in all 10 of the Knicks' games this season, averaging 34 minutes per contest.
