Kristaps Porzingis is hoping to avoid surgery to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee.
Porzingis has been ruled out for the remainder of Dallas' first-round series with the Clippers, but he's hopeful that if the Mavs somehow advance, that he'll be able to return at a later point this postseason. However, the Mavs will very likely be eliminated tomorrow, so at that point, KP may be more open to a surgical remedy. Right now, he's hoping that with rest and some PRP injections the tear will be able to heal naturally, so it does sound like the lateral meniscus tear that he's dealing with is relatively minor.
