Should the Boston Celtics be worried about Kristaps Porzingis’ health?

The Boston Celtics need to manage the workload of star big man acquisition Kristaps Porzingis over the course of the 2023-24 NBA season and consider how they will manage his playing time for the campaign to maximize his overall contribution to the team in light of the injury that is keeping the Latvian center out of 2023 FIBA World Cup play.
