The Raptors fell to the Knicks 108-100 in the last meeting between these two teams in November at Madison Square Garden. The 22-year-old landed on the foot of Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo after a dunk attempt and immediately grabbed his leg in pain. He had 10 points and the Knicks led 31-30 at the time of his injury.
"If somebody offers us [a point guard], we're going to sure look for him, " Perry said. Dubbed a "unicorn" by Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant for his unique skill and athleticism, Porzingis is part of the league's group of gifted big men with the size, speed and savvy to space the floor on offense without sacrificing defense at the other end of the court.
"We hadn't talked about that prior to this injury and we won't get into that now about him", Perry said.

It was helpful, then that China's television has told the prime minister that her nickname there is "Auntie May". But business is the focus of her trip.
At 23-32, the New York Knicks are still in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff race, and they are only five games behind the eighth-place Philadelphia 76ers.
The most obvious beneficiary of Porzingis' injury for fantasy purposes is Michael Beasley, who opened the second half of New York's 103-89 loss against Milwaukee at power forward after Zinger went down. Ron Baker had arthroscopic shoulder stabilization surgery on his right shoulder. Kanter announced on Twitter that he received 30 stitches in his mouth to fix a cut that re-opened during Tuesday's loss to the Bucks. I don't want to see anyone going down like that hurting his knee. I'm just going to pray for him tonight. "He is obviously a very important member of this basketball team and this organization and part of this NY community".
The Knicks also lost sharpshooter Tim Hardaway Jr. who left Tuesday's game with a knee injury.
Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony questionable against Lakers
With the trade deadline fast approaching, the Warriors have a bit of a decision to make. "When I first got there, it was surreal". Despite what the Lakers have said over the last few days, if George comes knocking at their door they're going to open it up.
Speaking of draft picks, the Knicks own their first-round selection in the upcoming 2018 NBA Draft, which has been dubbed one of the deepest in recent memory.
The teams have split the first two of their four scheduled meetings this season. Bet the Raptors -12 over the Knicks on Thursday night.
Lee is averaging career-bests in points per game (13.3), three-point shooting (41.6 percent) and free-throw shooting (93.0 percent). Toronto has the best home record in the National Basketball Association at 22-4. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that it will not be known for at least a year or so after Porzingis returns if he is the same player or has the same potential he did before the catastrophic injury.
Temporary government funding bill heads to the Senate
Ryan said he supports the agreement, adding the proposal includes "enormous strides" for the country's defense system. The House and Senate today are expected to vote on a bipartisan budget deal that funds the government for two years.
"But I think they'll be able to do a good job at keeping this team playing hard, playing together, and that's what we'll be looking at moving forward".
