1 Porzingis Probable

According to the Knicks’ official Twitter account, Kristaps Porzingis is listed as probable for tonight’s game against Memphis.

The 22-year-old has missed the last two games with an ankle injury and the Knicks are 0-4 this season when their unicorn has been out of the lineup.

2 Hardaway Jr. Sidelined

Tim Hardaway Jr. will be out for at least the next two weeks with a stress injury in his lower left leg.

Through 21 games, Hardaway was the team’s second-leading scorer, averaging 17.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game.

3 Dotson Gets His Shot

Daymean Dotson is expected to see time in place of Hardaway. The rookie second-round pick out of Houston has started to log significant minutes since Hardaway went down with an injury.

In Monday’s game against the Pacers, Dotson pulled down a career-high seven rebounds and played a career-high 29 minutes.

Look for Dotson to get going with his long-distance shooting.

4 On the Marc

Any scouting report on the Grizzlies has to feature their multiple-time All-Star center, Marc Gasol, who helped Memphis snap an 11-game losing streak on Monday with a 21-point effort.

The 32-year-old leads Memphis in scoring this season, averaging 19.0 points and 8.9 rebounds per game.
