Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis helped off court after suffering left knee injury vs

Scott Perry said he met with Kristaps Porzingis late Tuesday night and told him his job as Knicks general manager will be to make sure the All-Star comes back to a better team when he recovers from his torn ACL. The Knicks went on the lose the contest, 103-99.

The Knicks are now 23-32 and 11th in the Eastern Conference and have lost four in a row.

"What are we going to do without KP now?"

He is expected to undergo season-ending surgery, Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported.

The chances of the Knicks making the playoffs already were slim, and now they appear to be microscopic without their best player. And will he ever return to same level he showcased over the first four months of this season? In all, he has missed seven games this season and 33 over the course of his first 2½ seasons in the National Basketball Association. In that case, why did I say dont sign Lebron? NY shipped third-string center Willy Hernangomez to the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday for Johnny O'Bryant and two second-round picks, according to ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Last year, some of their texts provided even more ammo to the FBI, Justice Department, and Mueller's critics. But it was impossible to discern from the texts alone what specifically the president was inquiring about.

Now with the playoffs out of reach, the Knicks will compete for a high draft position.

As I just stated, I believe the Knicks should just sign serviceable players to fill up the roster spots on the Knicks going into next season. Jeff Hornacek exchanged words with his star player.

"Was hoping for the best news when I saw the play after the game", James wrote on Twitter. With Porzingis hurt, the Knicks (23-32) probably will change those plans and look to play young players such as Frank Ntilikina and Trey Burke more often in the final 27 games. "Mills and Perry had privately stressed their plan to be patient and grow this team organically around Porzingis and Ntilikina prior to Porzingis" injury; they can not deviate from that plan now.

James was among several players to send words of support to Porzingis after the injury.

They may not be teammates anymore, but Carmelo Anthony said that Kristaps Porzingis is like a little brother to him - so he was especially sad to hear of the Knicks' star's torn ACL. The one silver lining to come from this - if there can be any silver lining from such a depressing event - is that without Porzingis, the Knicks should plummet in the standings - and, in doing so, improve their draft pick.
