Because that would just be a huge distraction for me mentally, hoping and wishing for KP, that 25, 28 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks, whatever. That's not a knock on Fizdale as the 44-year old outspoken coach is focused on making the most of his available players, instead of sulking about Porzingis' absence. After stories published Thursday afternoon cited Porzingis' lack of progress, he posted Instagram photos in which he appeared to be sprinting at an outdoor track.

The team is unclear whether Porzingis will be able to return this season, according to the Daily News. "I can see instantly how he fits, but I'm just trying to keep my mind focused on [the current roster]".

On Thursday, Fizdale said that the All-Star big man hadn't begun sprinting and that he hadn't made significant progress since the start of training camp.

Porzingis has worked out primarily at the team practice facility but also has worked outside of the facility. "I've got to lock in on these young bucks, keep them up to par". Fizdale said that the Knicks trainers were aware that Porzingis had been running and recommended places for Porzingis to sprint.

According to Fizdale, he had no idea about the running work because Porzingis hadn't yet done any sprinting at the practice facility, and his attention had mostly been on the players who are now on the court for the Knicks.

"I didn't realize he had went out to the track", Fizdale said, according to Newsday.

One major blight is that they're still without Kristaps Porzingis, who suffered a torn ACL last February and now has no timetable for a return.

The Knicks are continuing to wait for standout forward Kristaps Porzingis to return from knee surgery.

The Knicks have opened the season 4-8 and sport the youngest roster in the National Basketball Association.

Last season, Porzingis averaged 22.7 points and 6.6 rebounds in 48 games.
