An MRI exam revealed the ACL tear, and Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported that Porzingis would undergo season-ending surgery.
It's a devastating blow both to the playoff chances of the Knicks and to fantasy owners who invested an early-round pick in Porzingis and now must scramble to replace him.
Porzingis is one of the best young players in the National Basketball Association, and he was averaging a career-best 22.9 points and 2.4 blocks per game in his third season. Middleton is the only Milwaukee player to start all 53 games this season. Beasley's playing time had been trending downward recently, but he finished with nine points on 3-of-11 shooting, six rebounds, two assists and a block in 24 minutes against the Bucks.

"He was down when he first got the news, but then he instantly switched to, 'I've got to take on this new journey". He hoped to return from Los Angeles to a playoff race after not coming close in his first two seasons. Stay tuned for the latest Kristaps Porzingis injury update. Those plans were derailed when the unquestioned leader of the New York Knicks crashed to the court Tuesday night with a torn ACL that will sideline him the rest of this season and possibly a good deal of the next. He will have surgery to fix the injury in the coming days, though it hasn't yet been scheduled.
Porzingis is different. The franchise's first homegrown star since Patrick Ewing, he has done everything possible through his first two-and-a-half years in the National Basketball Association to show that he was capable of turning things around for the woebegone Knicks.
