Celtics C Kristaps Porzingis out 5-6 months after surgery

Kristaps Porzingis

Boston Celtics center Kristaps Porzingis is expected to miss five to six months after undergoing surgery on his lower right leg, the team announced Thursday.

That timeline would put Porzingis’ return as late November to December at the earliest.

Porzingis, 28, sustained a torn retinaculum and dislocated posterior tibialis tendon in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

After missing two games, he had five points and one rebound in 16 minutes in the Celtics’ 106-88 championship-clinching victory over the Dallas Mavericks on June 17. He had been sidelined 10 games with a calf strain before returning to play the first two games of the Finals.

In his first season with the Celtics since being acquired in a trade with the Washington Wizards, Porzingis averaged 20.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.9 blocks across 57 games (all starts) during the regular season.
