Knicks Playoffs Hopes Thwart As Center Kristaps Porzingis Tears ACL Jason Cordner

New York Knicks All-Star Kristaps Porzingis' season was effectively ended by a torn anterior cruciate ligament on Tuesday, and former team-mate Carmelo Anthony sympathised with his "little brother".

The Bucks lost the rebounding battle, 43-47, but held NY to just 41.6 per cent shooting from the field and 21.7 per cent from three-point range.

Williams was twice named the Western Conference player of the week in January, when he led the league in points scored in the month, including a career-high, 50-point performance in a victory at Golden State.

One issue that is unsettled in the wake of Porzingis' injury is the Knicks' plans to offer him a rookie extension.

The New York Knicks season is over.

Lou Williams doesn't have to worry about the trade deadline - or free agency.

Whenever Kanter returns, he'll shoulder the heaviest load in the frontcourt moving forward.

But then Porzingis didn't get up.

The Knicks' first game without Porzingis will be on Thursday when they visit Toronto to play against the Raptors.

Unfortunately, Porzingis' ACL injury wasn't the only concern for the Knicks on Tuesday night. It will be the first game for the Knicks since Kristaps Porzingis (knee) tore his ACL, so they will need everything Hardaway Jr. has on offense.

The injury when Porzingis landed on the foot of Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. "Praying on a speedy recovery", Hardaway Jr. tweeted. He had missed at least 10 games in each of his first two seasons and will finish with only 48 games played in this one. "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. Perry said he's still trying to add more athleticism and talked to Orlando about penetrating point guard Elfrid Payton, whom he drafted for the Magic.
