Knicks PF Kristaps Porzingis is expected to meet with Knicks' doctors Monday regarding a sore right hip.
Porzingis felt soreness in his right hip during Sunday's preseason matchup against the Nets where he sat out the entire second half.
"I didn't feel anything before the game," Porzingis told Newsday's Al Iannazzone. "At halftime, when I cooled down that's when I really felt it."
It isn't the first time Porzingis has felt the soreness as he compared it to the same pain he felt during pre-draft workouts in 2015. However, he doesn't view it as anything to worry about.
"I'm not too concerned," he said. "It's just a sore right hip is what the doctor described, and it's nothing to be too concerned about. But tomorrow the doctor is going to look at it and we'll have more clearer [answer]."
The Knicks have been cautious with Porzingis this offseason after he played in the European Championships with the Latvian national team. He didn't play the Knicks' preseason game against the Wizards last Friday, and he was taken out of practice when it began to get physical.
Porzingis will hope to bee 100 percent healthy when the Knicks take on the Thunder in their regular season opener on Oct. 19.
