Kristaps Porzingis out for the year with ACL tear
According to Yahoo Sports NBA Contributor Shams Charania, Kristaps Porzingis suffered a season-ending ACL injury on his left knee Tuesday night vs. the Milwaukee Bucks.
The injury occurred when Porzingis landed awkwardly after a dunk in the second quarter. He immediately grabbed his left leg in pain and had to be helped off the court by teammates.
In his third season, Porzingis was averaging 22.9 points, 6.7 rebounds and a league-high 2.4 blocks per game. The 7-foot-3 Latvian was chosen to his first All-Star game as a member of Team LeBron.
