Knicks' Porzingis tears ACL in left knee

Knicks Vs Bucks Preview Starting Lineups TV Time Injuries 02/06/2018

New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis exited Tuesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks with an apparent left leg injury.

It turns out this was the worst-case scenario for NY.

The injury, which occurred after his dunk over Giannis Antetokounmpo occurred 12 days before Porzingis was slated to make his first All-Star appearance, in Los Angeles for Team LeBron. Porzingis managed to convert a hard finish, but landed and immediately clutched his left knee. Porzingis is the Knicks' most important draft pick since Patrick Ewing, a guy who fans hope that they will one day be able to name an era after. He was eventually helped up and taken to the locker room. "Porziņģis is 22 years old, 7'3" and is as special as they come on a Knicks team that is anything but.

Winning the Super Bowl is pretty sweet to begin with, but it certainly doesn't hurt to get almost another $200,000 sent your way. We're going get on this plane and go back to Philadelphia, and we're going to celebrate with our fans back in Philly.

The Knicks didn't announce a timetable, but the 7-foot-3 Latvian will need surgery and is done for the season. After the game, the Knicks themselves would confirm. I'm just going to pray for him tonight.

The other question the Knicks face is what to do with Porzingis himself, since he's eligible for a contract extension this coming fall. He was averaging a team-high 22.9 points, and 6.7 rebounds. He did not put much pressure on the left leg at all as he left the court and will have an MRI Tuesday night to assess the damage, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. A full-on tank will be good for the future, and could even bring in some starry young talent to pair with Porzingis as soon as next season-presuming KP returns fully healthy. This injury will likely effect how they think about next season as well.

It's odd to see injuries to multiple big name players in such a short cluster. "Come back stronger and better brother". Kanter revealed after the game that he will need oral surgery to fix a gash in his mouth that was being held together by stitches. Antetokounmpo and Bledsoe combined to score 46 as Milwaukee improved to 2-0 against the Knicks this season with the 103-89 win.
