Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis: Meeting with team doctors this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis (knee) will meet with team doctors this week, Steve Popper of Newsday reports. General manager Steve Mills stated, "We'll have some medical evaluations of [Porzingis] this week and we'll start to develop what the right plan is for him to come back. We're not going to do anything that jeopardizes the future of this franchise and we're going to be consistent and stay true to that."

The continued sentiment from management is that this season is "a time focused on player development", indicating there will be no rush to bring back Porzingis, who tore his ACL in early February. It's possible a more specific timeline will emerge after he meets with team doctors. From a fantasy perspective, the murkiness of the situation makes it tough to determine where to draft Porzingis, who averaged 22.7 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 1.9 threes last season. Even when he returns, it's possible he sees limited minutes and takes frequent nights off.

Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis: Varying timetables given for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knicks owner James Dolan said that Porzingis (knee) could miss the entire 2018-19 season, Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports. "I've been told everything from December to him being out for the season, so I don't know what to expect on that," Dolan said.

While the Knicks certainly aren't shutting Porzingis down officially for next season at this stage in his recovery, it's still notable that Dolan indicated there's a chance his superstar big man won't take the court. Porzingis' original 10-to-12 month timetable put a return somewhere between late December and February, so if this recent possibility holds true, it would be a huge surprise. Look for additional updates to be provided as Porzingis hits milestones in his recovery, but for the sake of both team and individual development, it seems it would be in the best interest of both the Knicks and Porzingis to get him back at some point during the 2018-19 campaign. For now, it's safe to assume he'll miss at least the first two months of the season.

Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis: No elbow procedure needed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis said Saturday that he won't require offseason surgery to address the swelling and soreness on his elbow that bothered him for significant portions of the 2017-18 campaign, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports.

Even if the big man had needed an elbow procedure, it's unlikely that it would impact his outlook for 2018-19, as Porzingis' recovery from February surgery to repair a torn left ACL remains the chief concern. The Knicks haven't provided a projected return timetable for the franchise cornerstone, but the expectation is that he'll need at least 10-to-12 months to make a full recovery, meaning that he likely won't be available for the start of the upcoming season. If it's any consolation, Porzingis should at least be able to work on his shooting throughout the summer without restriction now that his elbow is no longer a concern.

Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis: Out at least 10 months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis, who underwent successful surgery Tuesday to repair the torn ACL in his left knee, is expected to miss at least 10 months, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports.

While a relatively long time, a 10-plus-month recovery period is nothing out of the ordinary for a torn ACL. Optimistically, Porzingis could return in the middle of December, though it would not be surprising if the organization opted to keep their prized young player out a bit longer for precautionary reasons. Prior to suffering the injury, Porzingis was having a career year, averaging 22.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game.

Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis: Surgery on tap for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Porzingis will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair the torn ACL in his left knee, Steve Popper of The Bergen Record reports.

Porzingis tore his ACL exactly one week prior landing awkwardly after a made dunk. While the exact length of his absence remains undetermined, it seems likely that the 22-year-old All-Star won't be ready in time for the start of the 2018-19 season. As for what's left of the current season, Michael Beasley is expected to see the biggest jump in fantasy value given the added playing time available.
