There's no reason to rush Kristaps Porzingis, whether that be intellectually or physically.
The Knicks drafted Porzingis fourth overall back in June's draft, but external pressure shouldn't be a reason to speed up anyone's development, and that includes that of KP. But the rookie's training camp didn't exactly start on the foot that everyone had hoped it would, namely because something bad happened to the knee attached to that foot.

This seems more than precautionary. There's no reason for anyone who isn't 100 percent to participate in training camp, especially someone who's just breaking into the league. Once Porzingis regains his full health, he'll be right back at it with the rest of the Knicks.
