Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, an NBA insider, claims that the Boston Celtics might not be without him for very long. He provided a positive update on Tuesday regarding Kristaps Porzinigs’ future prospects.

According to Wojnarowski, there is increasing hope that the adaptable big man will be able to play against the Indiana Pacers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The date of Game 4 is Monday, May 27.

Kristaps Porzingis has been increasing his on-court workouts and aiming to improve his fitness in order to recover from a soleus strain in his right calf and return to the starting lineup.

With Porzingis’ rehabilitation, the Boston Celtics have had the luxury of taking their time. In the first round, the Heat did not put much pressure on them, and in the Eastern Conference semifinals, the Cleveland Cavaliers did not pose much of a threat. The only way either series lost was when the other team made more than twenty three-pointers. Both series were won in five games.

For the Boston Celtics, having Kristaps Porzingis back in the starting lineup would be extremely beneficial. He is a formidable force in the paint defensively and offers excellent 3-point shooting for a big man, which affects the game on both sides of the court.

He averaged 20.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.9 blocks per game in the regular season. Kristaps Porzingis is perhaps the best offensive No. 3 option in the NBA.
