Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis was spotted in a walking boot after spraining his right ankle during Thursday's 119-104 road loss to the Cavaliers.
Porzingis totaled eight points and five rebounds in 15 minutes before limping to the locker room at halftime.
The Knicks did not provide an immediate diagnosis. Porzingis told reporters after the game he will "probably" get further testing on his ankle on Friday.
