Default Porzingis Might Miss Next Season

NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 13: Kristaps Porzingis #6 of the New York Knicks is welcomed back after tearing his ACL previously in the season prior to taking on the Dallas Mavericks during their game at Madison Square Garden on March 13, 2018 in New York City.

An optimistic timetable for Kristaps Porzingis' return to action following successful surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee would see him back on the hardwood around Christmas.

New York Knicks owner James Dolan, however, isn't ruling out the possibility that his franchise player could be sidelined for the entire 2018-19 campaign.

"I’ve been told everything from December to him being out for the season, so I don’t know what to expect on that," Dolan told the New York Post's Larry Brooks. "But we can’t just sit on our ass while he’s away. We need to develop a team and then integrate him into it when he comes back."

Porzingis suffered the injury Feb. 6 while coming down off a right-handed jam over Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. His knee buckled after landing awkwardly on his left leg, and the Knicks' training staff carried him back to the locker room.

They might as well tank. I hate "the Process" but it works.

No kidding, Knicks should hire an exorcist and a Voodoo expert. They spent YEARS of doing dumb things left and right, and when finally, finally, they find ayoung player with a big chance to be franchise player, he has to be out for 18 months.

Hard for Knicks fan who may be ultra passionnate, but you won't win Jack shit with Tim Hardaway Jr and Mike Beasley. at least tro tu make smart moves to clear up space for 2019 summer

Aren't they getting ready to change the lottery rules again?

There is nothing really new in this article. "As early as Christmas or the end of 2019 season", has always been the case. He's one of my fav players to watch tho, hope he comes back better than ever.

Should just go to a rotating draft order and take season records completely out of it, so that there's ZERO benefit to losing games.

Knicks can't even tank right. If I were them, I'd trade whatever I could to move up in the draft this year. Clear up as much cap space as possible too for Giannis in 2019.

They did the cap clearing strategy awhile back and ended up with Amare and Raymond Felton. I don't think they'll want to re-employ that.

Then there will be an incentive to win tank for 9th seed, Adam Silver has discussed some strategies to have a proportion of TV money being distributed based on seeding which seems far more realistic.

Should be like soccer. Pure capitalism. The best teams get the top picks. If you're garbage you get nothing and are left to die.

No I mean, each of the 30 teams gets the #1 pick once every 30 years.

Your record doesn't matter.

Well, tanking won't help much if you don't hire some competent scouts who understand the type of players and skill you're searching...

Back at Lakers Front Officelast year, i bought some wine for Magic and some flowers to Jeannie, and they said i was a cool guy, my son seemed a good kid and they drafted him right out of the 2nd pick

Planning to Bring some Louis Vuitton stuff for Jeannie this year while introducing her to Liangelo
