Indeed, the Knicks will be judicious in returning Porzingis to action - not with an eye on saving next season.
The blow came in the second quarter of the Knicks matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks at Madison Square Garden. "And we're going to be here to support him every step of the way".
Al Iannazzone has been covering the Knicks and the National Basketball Association for Newsday since January 2012 after following the National Basketball Association for 11 years for The Record (N.J.).
To answer Lee's question, the Knicks are going to lose.
Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine tore his ACL while playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves on February 3, 2017, but only made his return to the court last month on January 13. How far they fall could prove to be the difference between the Knicks landing another solid future talent, like Frank Ntilikina (the eighth pick in last year's draft), or a potential future franchise cornerstone to pair with Porzingis (the fourth overall pick in 2015). "Now that won't change as long as I'm here, regardless of where were at record-wise". Jeff Hornacek exchanged words with his star player.
"Was hoping for the best news when I saw the play after the game", James tweeted. But now they are better off playing for the lottery than the playoffs, and any moves they make would likely be with that in mind. Well, Kristaps is going to coming off a serious injury that could possibly affect his jump shot, speed, and dunking/shot-blocking ability.
An MRI exam revealed the ACL tear, and Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported that Porzingis would undergo season-ending surgery.
Perry was leery of giving any sort of timetable for Porzingis' return.
Porzingis had hoped they would fight all the way to the playoffs for the first time in his career. All I can tell you is if you are a Knicks fan is to hope and pray, and maybe for the first time in nearly two decades Knicks fans prayers will finally be answered, maybe. Perry hinted at as much during a news conference on Thursday when he said, "There's going to be an opportunity for a lot of the young players to get out there and show what they can do".
