Kristaps Porzingis Tears ACL, Will Miss Season

It was later revealed through an MRI that he tore his ACL.

But he wanted the challenge and has been up for it, averaging 22.7 points and a league-leading 2.4 blocked shots per game.

He could potentially miss the start of next season as well, as we have recently seen two players only just return after tearing their ACL's last February. Beasley's playing time had been trending downward recently, but he finished with nine points on 3-of-11 shooting, six rebounds, two assists and a block in 24 minutes against the Bucks.

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 harsh reality of seeing an underperforming team without a star player could ignite free agency moves this off-season as well as big trades on draft night.

Whenever Kanter returns, he'll shoulder the heaviest load in the frontcourt moving forward. "He is the most important part of our family", said Kanter, who was traded to NY from Oklahoma City previous year. A Knicks team clinging to an outside hope of pushing for the East's final postseason spot, and a fan base that's always been desperate for a reason to believe, will hope for a similar outcome this time, and wait with bated breath on the results of the MRI Porzingis will undergo later Tuesday.

This injury raises the question if the New York Knicks are going to give Kristaps the expected max contract extension this summer. Porzingis will miss the rest of the season and could miss opening night of next season.

Kristaps Porzingis's injury doesn't change the calculus very much.

As of today, the Knicks will likely win the 10th draft pick and can use that to bolster a supporting cast for Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr.

Indeed, the Knicks will be judicious in returning Porzingis to action - not with an eye on saving next season. Prior to the injury, the Knicks planned to operate as a team still hoping to make the playoffs. That should mean more minutes for rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina and guard Trey Burke. A little Jewish boy just trying to make it in the great City of NY.
