New York Knicks proprietor James Dolan had an eyebrow-elevating remark about their star ahead Kristaps Porzingis yesterday.
He informed Larry Brooks of the New York Publish that Kristaps might probably miss the whole 2018-19 season as a consequence of his ACL damage. Dolan stated the next with regard to Porzingis’ timetable:
“I’ve been advised every little thing from December to him being out for the season, so I don’t know what to anticipate on that. However we will’t simply sit on our ass whereas he’s away. We have to develop a workforce after which combine him into it when he comes again.”
Porzingis tore his left ACL on Feb. 6, ending his season. He averaged a profession-excessive 22.7 factors alongside with 6.6 rebounds and a couple of.four blocks, and was named to his first All-Star recreation.
It has been two months since his surgical procedure, and there’s no official timetable but, however Dolan’s feedback will not be encouraging. The Unicorn is among the greatest younger gamers within the NBA. New York has missed the playoffs in every of the previous 5 seasons, and with out KP, it’s more likely to be six straight seasons in 2019.
