  • Knicks Kristaps Porzingis suffers torn ACL

New York Knicks Forward Kristaps Porzingis (6) looks to pass during the game between the New York Knicks and the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Oh.

"Very tough news to swallow".

"We've got tremendous confidence in our medical group here that he's going to make more than a full recovery", Perry said.

Following the deadline, NY plans to play younger athletes such as Frank Ntilikina and guard Trey Burke more often, sources said.

Neither U.S. officials nor the U.S. -backed coalition have offered details on the identity of attacking forces. After the attack the coalition "conducted strikes against attacking forces to repel the act of aggression".

So now the Knicks will wait - for Porzingis to get healthy, for the ping-pong balls to bounce as they may, for the next calendar year to go by.

Perry was leery of giving any sort of timetable for Porzingis' return. But he wasn't looking to move again after doing it so often in recent years.

"Was hoping for the best news when I saw the play after the game", LeBron James wrote on Twitter. Plus we have seen mix results in how players recover.

An MRI exam revealed the ACL tear, and Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported that Porzingis would undergo season-ending surgery. "And we're going to be here to support him every step of the way". For the remaining games, this season the Knicks should (but knowing the Knicks they will not) also give more minutes to the younger players on the roster such as rookie Frank Ntilikina and sparkplug Trey Burke. "Until he's deemed 100 percent not only by us, but how he feels mentally". We want to continue to fight.

Adam Lallana sent off for violent conduct in Liverpool U23s defeat
Lallana is 29 years old, a full England worldwide , a former club captain (for Southampton ) and a Liverpool first-team fixture. The incident appeared to begin in the 62nd minute when Lallana and 19-year-old George Marsh slammed into one another.

He had come back stronger this season in hopes of becoming more durable and better handling the pounding in the post. NY traded Anthony to the Thunder in September, making Porzingis the present and future face of the franchise in the process.

"It's sad. I wanted to reach out to him but I'll reach out to him tonight", Anthony said after Wednesday's (AEDT) win over the Warriors. But you never know if that's going to happen at the deadline. "So this deal allowed us to do that".

"No, we're not looking to make any changes", Perry said. Yes, and as a Knicks fan I would cherish the moment forever, but at the end of the day, it is not what is best for the Knicks in the long term.

Kristaps Porzingis, the New York Knicks forward has torn his ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) in the left knee.

Parliament adjourned briefly amid protest by TMC, TDP and Akali Dal
Not just the Sena and TDP, some of the BJP's allies in Bihar have also taken to complain that their concerns are being neglected. On 23 January, Thackeray had declared that the Sena, another NDA constituent, would fight the next round of elections alone.

"We were without second-round picks", Perry said, "and we value first-round picks and second-round picks, but we were without picks in 2020 and 2021".
