Enes Kanter says his back is feeling much better after being sidelined the last two games with back spasms and is hopeful to return to the Knicks' lineup Monday against the Blazers.
Porzingis (lower back tightness) is expected to suit up tonight, while Kanter, who has missed the past two games with back spasms, is considered questionable.
After a two-game road trip, the Knicks return to The Garden to open a three-game homestand tonight.
New York has been much better at The Garden, recording a 9-3 record and averaging 109.4 points on 47.9 percent shooting.
On the road, the Knicks are 1-6 while averaging 96.6 points on 44.9 percent shooting.
Tim Hardaway Jr. is second on the Knicks in scoring (18.2 ppg) but has been somewhat inconsistent lately.
The Trail Blazers are led by the superb backcourt duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.
For the season, they are averaging a combined 47.4 points, 9.3 rebounds and 8.7 assists.
In Saturday’s comeback win at Washington, the pair combined for 55 points and scored 24 of Portland’s 35 points in the fourth quarter to erase a 17-point deficit.
