Jeff Hornacek expects Kristaps Porzingis to play vs. Kingsā€

New York Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis is expected to return to the court Saturday against the Sacramento Kings after missing Wednesday's game with ankle and elbow injuries.

Knicks Joakim Noah speaks after practice Friday.

"We know that is looming, " Perry said before the Knicks' 112-99 loss to the Magic.

"I said it earlier in training camp, I was pleasantly surprised how he's come back from the injuries and stuff", Hornacek said. "And I'm just happy to be back with the team". "The swelling went down, so I'll be ready to go tomorrow, probably". It's already tough enough trying to get Willy minutes.

Noah, 32, underwent shoulder surgery in April, but he already was recovering from a knee procedure when he was nabbed in March for ingesting a banned substance, which he has attributed to on an over-the-counter supplement he says he took to speed up his recovery time.

"I don't really want to talk about that right now, " Perry said. "I'm looking forward to getting to know him better as we move forward". He's got one more season left on his rookie deal in 2018-19 before becoming eligible for restricted free agency. "I think he's been playing great". He works hard after practice with our coaches. It's great to see KP back at practice and preparing for Saturday, although he was wearing a large brace on right arm due to the bursitis in his elbow.

"Last year was a tough year and there was a lot of frustration with the way we conducted ourselves and the way I conducted myself with the suspension".
