As he continues to recover from the ACL injury that took him out last season, newly acquired Dallas Mavericks forward Kristaps Porzingis is taking a big step.

On Monday, the Mavericks shared a short video showing Porzingis practicing with the team.

This is a huge positive step. However, fans shouldn’t get ahead of themselves. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has already poo-pooed the idea that Porzingis might play this season, and honestly that’s the right call.
