New York Knicks’ Star Kristaps Porzingis Tears ACL, Out for the Season

Injuries are the worst part of sports.

They happen and in every case they are tragic and heartbreaking. On Tuesday night, things took a turn for the absolute worst in what was at that point a tight battle between the Milwaukee Bucks and the New York Knicks. On a drive to the basket, Knicks’ All-Star big man Kristaps Porzingis, landed awkwardly on his left foot. His knee buckled, and Porzingis came crashing down, immediately grabbing his left knee in a heap of pain.

The third-year Latvian was en route to joining Team LeBron during this year’s All-Star Game and has had a career year averaging 22.9-points, 6.7-rebounds, and 2.4-rebounds per game. Upon the early diagnosis, it has been determined that Porzingis has in fact torn his ACL and will be out for the remainder of the season.

With Porzingis’ lanky and long-limbed build, a serious knee injury should be a cause for very serious concern, but here’s hoping that we see Porzingis back on the NBA court soon!

In light of Porzingis’ injury, the NBA brotherhood immediately gathered around the fallen All-Star.

It will be on NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to find a suitable replacement for Porzingis in the 2018 All-Star Game.
