Knicks’ superstar power forward Kristaps Porzingis has just torn his ACL against the Milwaukee Bucks.


Porzingis has been one of the NBA’s best players this season, earning his first All Star bid this season. In his third season in the league, Porzingis is averaging 22.9 points, 6.7 boards, and 2.4 blocks. New York Basketball’s brightest star has just gone down. The Knicks already had little shot at making the postseason, but now that dream is entirely out of the window. On the bright side, the Knicks will likely improve their draft stock after this injury.

After dunking the ball, Porzingis landed awkwardly on Giannis Antetokounmpo’s foot. He was in pain, and had to be carried off by teammates. An MRI revealed a torn ACL, abruptly ending Porzingis’ season.

Porzingis is the fourth All Star to go down with a serious injury, following DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall, and Kevin Love.
