The New York Knicks suffered a major blow on Tuesday night. Kristaps Porziņģis, their star power forward, went down against the Milwaukee Bucks at Madison Square Garden.
Porziņģis was holding his left leg as he went down. The Knicks have confirmed that the unicorn, as he is known, is down for the season with a torn ACL in his left knee.
He will have surgery in the coming days. After that, it will likely cause him to be out for a year as he recovers.
This means the Knicks will have to start the season without him next season. He could possibly play again in February 2019.
Porziņģis became the face of the franchise in September when the team delay its former star away. Carmelo Anthony was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The young Knicks will have to move on without him. This injury happens right before the trade deadline, as they could potentially acquire a rent-a-player to attempt to deal with this loss, as the trade deadline is on Thursday at 4 pm.
The Knicks are fighting with several other teams, as they attempt to make the playoffs.
