BOS Kristaps Porzingis to take at least a week off due to calf i

Porzingis was out of action due to a calf injury.

The Boston Celtics won 113-103 against the Atlanta Hawks in the 2023-2024 NBA regular season held at Boston TD Garden on the 27th (Korean time).

On this day, Boston, led by Jayson Tatum, who recorded 34 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists, including 5 3-pointers, defeated Atlanta, where Trae Young worked hard, and earned their 13th win of the season.

However, Boston could not be happy even with the victory. This is because it was reported that the team's key big man Kristaps Porzingis, who suffered a calf injury in the game against Orlando on the 25th, will be out for at least a week.

Boston, which advanced to the conference finals five times out of seven playoffs from the 2016-2017 season to last season and also advanced to the NBA Finals in 2022, but failed to lift the championship trophy, has Marcus Smart, Malcolm Brogdon, and Robert Ahead ahead of this season. Through bold investment, even using Williams as a trade card, the roster was strengthened by recruiting Porzingis and Jrue Holiday.

As expected, Boston was powerful. Boston is currently in first place in the Eastern Conference with 13 wins and 4 losses, with a starting lineup of Holliday, Derrick White, Jaylen Brown, Tatum and Porzingis.

Boston also has distinct weaknesses. It's bench depth. Looking at the games Boston lost this season, Derek White was absent in three of the four games, Jrue Holiday was unable to play in the other game due to an ankle injury, and Porzingis was injured during the game, creating a vacuum in the rotation.

Porzingis is also the type of player whose injury issues have followed him around throughout his career, so considering that he will need some management even after his return, Boston's bench resources such as Peyton Pritchard, Sam Houser, and Al Horford will need to consistently show good performances for Boston. This upward trend will be able to be maintained.
