NY Knicks Lose Their Unicorn

07 Feb, 2018

An MRI on New York Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis revealed that he tore the ACL in his left knee during Tuesday’s 103-89 home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, the team announced.

The injury occurred three minutes into the second quarter when Porzingis landed on Giannis Antetokounmpo’s foot after converting a dunk. His left ankle seemed to buckle on the play. Porzingis immediately grabbed his left knee after landing and was clearly in pain. Porzingis needed to be helped off the floor by two teammates, and he wasn’t putting much weight on his left leg.

The injury is a crushing blow for a franchise that was planning to build on a young core centered around the 22-year-old Porzingis.
