Kristaps Porzingis out for season with Torn ACL!!

Kristaps Porzingis injury

Kristaps Porzingis injury

Anthony, who was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder by the Knicks in the offseason, lamented the injury to the 22-year-old Latvian, who is averaging 22.7 points and an NBA-high 2.4 blocks per game.

Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis will likely miss the rest of this season after a serious knee injury suffered Tuesday night. With that goal no longer attainable, NY has shifted its focus to the 2018 National Basketball Association draft and the future.

The Porzingis injury will impact how the Knicks approach the trade deadline.

The Knicks lost to the Bucks 103-89 at Madison Square Garden last night in NY, as Giannis Antetokounmpo was able to run all over them, scoring 23 points with 11 rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks, and was 10-of-23 from the field.

"It's not going to deter us from what we're trying to accomplish when we got here". What the Knicks should do is trade expiring contracts for draft picks or to shed salary (the Knicks just traded Willy Hernangomez to Charlotte for two second-round draft picks), so I guess they're off to a decent start in that sense, I guess.

Dropping all the way to last may not be feasible in New York's remaining 29 games, but moving into the top five certainly is, given how little talent the Knicks have at their disposal.

The Knicks have almost an entire year, and potentially more, to figure out how to build around Porzingis and bring the winning culture back to NY. His availability is very important as the Knicks are now thin upfront with Porzingis out for the season.

But there are some small silver linings in the wake of in the injury, including the possibility that the Knicks end up with a higher pick in the 2018 National Basketball Association draft. In that case, why did I say dont sign Lebron? NY went from being down 11 at the half to leading 89-69 heading into the fourth.

"Every person's a little different in how they come back and respond", Perry said. After losing to the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night, the Knicks find themselves with a 23-32 record. Would Lebron stepping on to the court in the 2019 playoffs as a Knick be an fantastic spectacle? The lottery beckons once again for the Knicks who at least have held onto their first-round pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.

"We have tremendous confidence in our medical group here that he's going to make more than a full recovery", Perry said. "We played well, it's one game".

"I just like the way we came out and set the tone on both ends of the floor", said Raptors coach Dwane Casey, who did not need to play his starters in the fourth quarter for the second game in a row. He will have surgery to fix the injury in the coming days, though it hasn't yet been scheduled. After he underwent an MRI at a local hospital, the Knicks confirmed everyone's worst suspicions: He was done for the year with a torn ACL.

For now, the Knicks will likely give more time to rookie guard Frank Ntilikina, and Perry and Hornacek said players from the team's G League affiliate could get opportunities. He was named an All-Star for the first time in his career this season.

Im 21, Long Island boy.
