News

Porzingis, who underwent successful surgery Tuesday to repair the torn ACL in his left knee, is expected to miss at least 10 months, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports.

Impact

While a relatively long time, a 10-plus-month recovery period is nothing out of the ordinary for a torn ACL. Optimistically, Porzingis could return in the middle of December, though it would not be surprising if the organization opted to keep their prized young player out a bit longer for precautionary reasons. Prior to suffering the injury, Porzingis was having a career year, averaging 22.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game.
