Kristaps Porzingis sat out his second straight game with Achilles tendinitis and could miss the Martin Luther King Day matinee vs. Atlanta. He has missed five games total with the lingering issue, and now the medical staff’s edict is for him not to come back until he’s 100 percent. Hence, Hornacek said Porzingis “may be doubtful” vs. Atlanta but added the 7-foot-3 Latvian “hopes to play.’’

Porzingis said it’s not his call and will listen to the medical staff. “No problema,” Porzingis said, using his Spanish. “I didn’t feel any pain. I hope [to be ready]. The way I feel right now, yes, I feel I’ll be available [Monday]. It all depends if the doctors let me go.”
