BOSTON — Kristaps Porzingis returned to play for the Celtics as they attempted to close out the Dallas Mavericks in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Porzingis missed the previous two games because of a dislocated tendon in his left ankle. He was cleared to play a limited role in Game 4, but never took off his warmups during Boston's 122-84 loss in Dallas. He had been listed as questionable Monday morning before going through an on-court workout about 2 1/2 hours prior to tipoff. The workout included shooting, some light-contact post work and lateral movement drills. Mazzulla said Porzingis will not have a minutes restriction.
