It’s the news we’ve been waiting to hear, folks. Kristaps Porzingis’ ACL surgery was a success!
Kristaps Porzingis underwent successful surgery today to repair a torn ACL in his left knee, performed at the Hospital for Special Surgery.— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) February 13, 2018
We here at P&T have unearthed actual footage of the surgery.
And here’s the Young Frankenstein scene because I love Gene Wilder and still miss him. R.I.P. Gene Wilder.
Kristaps suffered the injury during an awkward landing following a dunk on Giannis Antetokounmpo during the Knicks’ loss to the Bucks last Tuesday. No timetable has been made available for his recovery, though ACL tears often take a year.
