Kristaps Porz­ingis will have to wait to play in the all-star game. Porz­ingis crashed to the court, punch­ing the floor in pain af­ter a dunk in the sec­ond quar­ter of a loss to Mil­wau­kee on Tues­day night. An MRI re­vealed a torn left ACL, an in­jury that will side­line Porz­ingis for the rest of this sea­son and per­haps a good deal of the next. Porz­ingis is a pop­u­lar player for his wide ar­ray of skills at seven foot three that led Golden State War­riors for­ward Kevin Du­rant to nick­name him a “uni­corn,” but also for the per­son­al­ity he brought to New York when he ar­rived in 2015 as a teenager from Latvia.
