What's Next For The Knicks After Kristaps Porzingis Season Ending Injury?

  • Kristaps Porzingis appeared to suffer a serious knee injury when he landed awkwardly on a dunk

The Knicks have almost an entire year, and potentially more, to figure out how to build around Porzingis and bring the winning culture back to NY.

It's time to look to their future.

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.

That meant favouring higher rates to limit borrowing and spending. "The job market is strong and inflation is low". During Yellen's four-year term, unemployment fell to 4.1 per cent, from 6.7 per cent when she took office.

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.

Tuesday marked the latest low point in a 21st century full of them for the Knicks, who have continually found new ways to implode over the past 17 years - during which they've managed to compile just four winning seasons. But he wasn't looking to move again after doing it so often in recent years.

CLIPPERS: Los Angeles signed Lou Williams to a multiyear contract extension, rewarding the NBA's best scorer off the bench with the long-term security he sought. I know they have still have like 30 games to go but what happened last night has major rippling effect on the Knicks going forward. "This one did and I am thankful for that". Considering his production throughout December and January - 15.6 points on 52.5 percent shooting, 6.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 triples in just 22.4 minutes per game - the Kansas State product is a must-own in leagues of all sizes moving forward.
