First-year New York Knicks coach David Fizdale may be too focused on his team at the moment to keep up with Kristaps Porzingis‘ rehab process, but at least he owned up to his mistake while calling himself a “doofus” in the process.

Fizdale addressed the matter on Friday, per Chris Iseman of

“I’m locked into the gym so I didn’t realize that he had taken the next step to go to the track, and start performing and getting his stride in order and getting that leg feeling good about running his normal stride. Like I said, I’m excited to see that. That was a real boost to all of us in the gym.

“I’m the only doofus that didn’t know he had went out to the track. Like I said, part of it is because I’m just locked into this.”
