Knicks center Kristaps Porzingis suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and he will miss the rest of the season.
Porzingis left Tuesday's 103-89 loss against the Bucks in the second quarter after hurting his knee when he was trying to dunk and he had to be helped into the locker room before being taken for an MRI that revealed the injury.
According to The Vertical's Shams Charania, Porzingis is already scheduling season-ending surgery.
