The mishap occurred in the 8:50 mark of the second quarter when Porzingis landed awkwardly after dunking over Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Knicks went on the lose the contest, 103-99.
The injury is a devastating blow for the Knicks, who are still in the hunt for a playoffs berth in the Eastern Conference with a 23-32 record, just five games behind the Phildelphia 76ers.
The 7-foot-3 Porzingis was the Knicks' leading scorer with 22.7 points per game and he led the NBA in blocked shots with 2.4 a contest. The date of his surgery has yet to be determined but a projected timetable for his return is pegged at 10 months, according to an ESPN report.
