He could potentially miss the start of next season as well, as we have recently seen two players only just return after tearing their ACL's last February.
Porzingis had at least given NY reason to entertain playoff hopes in a season that started days after Carmelo Anthony was traded to Oklahoma City.
It's a catastrophic blow to the franchise because Porzingis, 22, could need as many as 12 months to rehab. "Our job is to get this team in better position for when he returns to the court so he returns to a group more cohesive, stronger and hopefully a little more talented".
This injury raises the question if the New York Knicks are going to give Kristaps the expected max contract extension this summer. His availability is very important as the Knicks are now thin upfront with Porzingis out for the season.
The Bucks have had their way with New York City's National Basketball Association teams this season. So at the least, the Knicks should keep losing games to get high picks as a safety net just in case KP doesn't turn out to be the player all Knicks fans are hoping he will become (but again, Knowing the stupidity of the Knicks front office, they will most likely not do this).
Knicks All-Star big man Kristaps Porzingis tore his ACL after landing awkwardly in the second quarter against the Bucks at home. Regardless, Courtney Lee - who's owned in only 36.9 percent of ESPN.com leagues - is a must-add in the wake of Porzingis' injury and a potential Hardaway Jr. absence.
'Westworld' Season 2: Watch the chilling first trailer
The "Experience" section shows six parks, though only Westworld is available; the others are all convenient glitches. But there was no sign of the fan favourite Samurai hosts, who appeared in the final scenes of the first series.
The Knicks' first game without Porzingis will be on Thursday when they visit Toronto to play against the Raptors. If New York made a decision to wait and offer Porzingis an extension in the summer of 2019, it would create an additional $10 million in cap space for the club that summer.
The Knicks had been hoping to form such a nucleus, however, with a healthy Porzingis. "He is obviously a very important member of this basketball team and this organization and part of this NY community".
"Like I've said from the very beginning, we're going to do things here and be open to receiving calls to make deals that we feel are going to improve this basketball team", said Perry, who the Knicks hired in July.
The chances of the Knicks making the playoffs already were slim, and now they appear to be microscopic without their best player.
"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".
