Dallas Mavericks star Kristaps Porzingis is working hard ahead of NBA restart

The Dallas Mavericks will soon be ramping up for the NBA’s restart. Training camp begins in early July as regular season games are set to start on July 31. Each team will play eight before heading into the playoffs. There will be a play-in for the eighth spot in each conference. The traditional seven-game series playoffs will follow that.

The NBA coming back is important for the Mavs. Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis will be getting their first taste of the playoffs. The format is advantageous for Dallas too. Fans can read more about why here.

The Mavericks are still about a month away from getting together, but their practice facility is open for voluntary workouts. Kristaps Porzingis is back in Europe. That is not stopping him from getting in work, though.

Porzingis posted a number of workout videos to his Instagram story on Friday. His jumper is looking locked in. That is key for the Mavs.

Porzingis appears fully healthy. Remember, he missed ten straight games in January with a knee injury. The Mavericks then rested him in one game of back-to-back sets until play was suspended. Those restrictions likely come off as KP should be at full strength.

Porzingis was just heating up before the suspension. Over his final 15 games, he averaged 25.2 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks per game. The Unicorn is a matchup nightmare for the opposition. His ability as a roll man, floor spacer, and scorer helped the Mavs produced historically great offensive numbers this season.

Dallas Mavericks fans are in for a treat as the season wraps up. The team is looking healthy and ready to make noise in the playoffs. It should be a wild ride, so buckle up.
