Porzingis tears ACL in Knicks loss

Perry wouldn't speculate how the injury could influence the Knicks' decision to sign Porzingis to a contract extension this summer - which was a no-brainer before the catastrophic injury suffered when he dunked over Giannis Antetokounmpo and landed with his left knee buckling.

The New York Knicks lost not only a game but also their star player on Tuesday night in the National Basketball Association (NBA) league.

An MRI revealed a torn left ACL, an injury that will sideline Porzingis for the rest of this season and perhaps a good deal of the next. He hoped to return from Los Angeles to a playoff race after not coming close in his first two seasons.

Porzingis had at least given NY reason to entertain playoff hopes in a season that started days after Carmelo Anthony was traded to Oklahoma City.

The Bucks got off to a strong start right after the opening tip, but the Knicks quickly shook off their early rust to keep pace and eventually go ahead of the Bucks midway through the opening quarter. In all, he has missed seven games this season and 33 over the course of his first 2½ seasons in the National Basketball Association. The Knicks front office had made an effort to build a young core around Porzingis, viewed by many as a superstar-level player.

"Was hoping for the best news when I saw the play after the game", James tweeted.

Now, some good news has emerged as it has been reported that the 6-foot-6 shooting guard is healthy enough to play on Thursday against the Toronto Raptors, after X-rays came back negative on his lower leg. When asked about it on Wednesday, Perry said he had no plans to make a coaching change in-season.

Lou Williams doesn't have to worry about the trade deadline - or free agency.

Todd Frazier Signs with the New York Mets
In his lone full season on the South Side, Frazier set a career high with 40 homers but slipped to.225/.302/.464/107 OPS+. Prior to his brief time in Pinstripes in 2017, Todd Frazier debuted with the Cincinnati Reds on May 23, 2011 .

The chances of the Knicks making the playoffs already were slim, and now they appear to be microscopic without their best player.

The injury is a devastating blow for the Knicks, who are still in the hunt for a playoffs berth in the Eastern Conference with a 23-32 record, just five games behind the Phildelphia 76ers.

"If there's a deal that we feel is going to make our team better not only in the short-term, but in the long run, we're going to be open to doing it".
