Knicks C Kristaps Porzingis will have surgery on his torn ACL soon, and there is not yet a timetable for when he might return. GM Scott Perry said on Wednesday.
Porzingis tore the ACL in his left knee during Tuesday night's game against the Bucks, suffering the injury when he came down from a dunk.
He slapped the court after landing, clutched his knee, and was eventually helped off the court by other members of the Knicks before heading to the Hospital for Special Surgery to undergo an MRI that confirmed the injury.
Porzingis will undergo surgery to repair the tear. Recovery time for a torn ACL is usually between eight and 12 months, meaning Porzingis' season is over and his 2018-19 season will likely be impacted as well.
The 22-year-old Porzingis was averaging 22.9 points through 47 games for the Knicks in his third NBA season.
