The New York Knicks say All-Star Kristaps Porzingis tore his left ACL in a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night.
Porzingis dunked with 8:46 left in the first half and landed awkwardly, crashing to the court and holding his left knee. He was eventually helped up and taken to the locker room.
He left the arena for an MRI exam that revealed the injury.
Porzingis had scored 10 points before he was hurt. He was selected last month for his first All-Star appearance.
The Bucks won the game 103-89.
