DALLAS (AP) — Kristaps Porzingis will miss the start of the season as the Dallas Mavericks star continues recovery from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. Director of basketball operations Donnie Nelson says the club is being cautious with Luka Doncic’s European sidekick, who missed more than a season because of another knee injury. The NBA is in the midst of a short offseason coming off the pandemic-delayed 2019-20 season. Porzingis injured the knee in his playoff opener against the Los Angeles Clippers.
