Knicks' Porzingis to sit with ankle and elbow injuries

Doug McDermott played a season-high 30 minutes with Kristaps Porzingis (ankle, elbow) injured on Wednesday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting.

Porzingis scored 28 points, including a go-ahead three-pointer in the fourth quarter and the game-sealing layup with seconds remaining, in a 118-113 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday night. He shot 10-for-15 from the floor overall, draining four 3-pointers Tuesday.

Porzingis has had some injury problems in his career. The Knicks have gone all-in on their young star, and he's rewarded that confidence by turning that superstar potential he showed in his first two seasons into performance on the court. First, he had a 38-point effort against the Denver Nuggets on October 30, before exploding for a 40-point performance against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday.

Veterans Day program is Friday, Nov. 10, at Boone Central
Today, it's a day set aside to thank and honor living veterans who served honorably in the military during war or peace. Veterans are invited to stay for a reception and conversation immediately following the ceremony.

Unfortunately for the Knicks, Porzingis isn't superhuman. The 7-foot-3 forward leads NY with 30.0 points per game, and became the first player in Knicks history to score 300 points in the first 10 games of the season Tuesday night in a victory over Charlotte.

Without Porzingis on the floor, the team will have to rely on their plethora of frontcourt options, including newly acquired big man Enes Kanter and veteran Kyle O'Quinn.
