Porzingis sits out for Knicks vs Thunder; Adams out for OKC

NEW YORK (AP) Kristaps Porzingis is sitting out the Knicks’ game against Oklahoma City because of a sore left knee.

The Thunder are without starting center Steven Adams after he sustained a concussion in their triple-overtime victory in Philadelphia on Friday.

Porzingis worked out before Saturday’s game before the Knicks ruled their leading scorer out. Porzingis had left their victory over Brooklyn in the third quarter Thursday because his knee was bothering him.

Michael Beasley is starting in place of Porzingis, while Dakari Johnson is the starting center for the Thunder.
