Report: Kristaps Porzingis Out for Remainder of Season with Torn Left ACL

An MRI on New York Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis revealed he tore the ACL in his left knee in 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.

Porzingis entered play Tuesday averaging a team-leading 22.9 points per game and an NBA-high 2.4 blocks per game.

He previously missed two games due to a left knee issue and two games due to an ankle injury. In all, he has missed seven games this season and 33 over the course of his first 2½ seasons in the NBA.

New York (23-32) entered play Tuesday remaining hopeful of making a playoff run, though missing Porzingis for extended time would certainly dampen those hopes.

The Knicks entered their game against the Bucks four games out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference, having lost 10 of 14.

Sources: Clippers Prepared to Offer Tobias Harris, 12th or 13th Pick for Kawhi Leonard

It’s also unclear if the Spurs would be willing to trade [Kawhi] Leonard to the Lakers or any other team. If they are, other teams might have more significant assets to offer, especially given that the Lakers do not have a lottery pick this year. They will select 25th in next week’s draft, a pick they got in a trade with Cleveland.

The Clippers have more to offer than the Lakers. They would be willing to create a package with forward Tobias Harris and the 12th or 13th pick in this year’s draft, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.
