Ahead of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, as the best-of-seven series moved to American Airlines Center in Texas, the Boston Celtics got what was viewed at the time to be possibly destructive news, with veteran forward Kristaps Porzingis suffering another injury in the postseason.

Apparently, Porzingis suffered an uncommon type of foot injury in Game 2, which put his playing status in doubt for Game 3 in Dallas on Wednesday night.

Many thought that this injury might unlock for the Dallas Mavericks to return into this series after being up to a 0-2 deficit, dropping the very first 2 video games at TD Garden in Boston.

Although the Celtics played fine throughout Porzingis’ lack throughout the majority of the NBA playoffs so far, the group wished to be at complete strength and take no possibilities versus a resistant Mavericks team led by Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, who have actually defied the chances in each round they have actually played leading up to the Finals.

Fortunately for Boston, the Celtics had the ability to protect a win in Dallas the other day, putting the Mavericks in a difficult area moving on, which no NBA group in history has actually had the ability to return from.

Even though it appears unavoidable that Boston will be crowned NBA champs for a league-record 18th time, the group might need to do it without Porzingis moving on, according to head coach Joe Mazzulla through Jay King of The Athletic.

“Joe Mazzulla said Kristaps Porzingis got better from yesterday to today and is fighting hard to play in Game 4,” King tweeted.

At this point, the Celtics appear in an excellent position to win everything with or without Porzingis, which likely suggests it would be a clever relocate to rest him for Game 4 even if he can play.

There’s no point running the risk of additional injury with the collaborate 3-0 in the series and on the edge of raising the Larry O’Brien Trophy, even if the group is required to Game 5 in Boston on Friday.
