Antetokounmpo scored 23 points, jumping over Hardaway for one high-flying slam after Porzingis had dunked over him earlier in the game. "Tough day for the young man", Knicks general manager Scott Perry said on Wednesday. We wouldn't want to put him out there in any risk. 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. He dunked with 8:46 left in the half and landed awkwardly, crashing to the court and holding his left knee.
Kristaps Porzingis was described as "devastated" when doctors told him he had a torn left anterior cruciate ligament Tuesday night.
The Knicks probably would have needed to find some help by Thursday's trade deadline, and perhaps they would have tried given Porzingis' stated desire for a playoff push. All this might make sense, just suck until you best player returns, But why continue to lose games once your star returns to the court? He had been due to play in the All-Star Game later this month for LeBron James' team.
So now the Knicks will wait - for Porzingis to get healthy, for the ping-pong balls to bounce as they may, for the next calendar year to go by. Perry could try to make more deals by Thursday's 3 p.m. trade deadline.
