Tim Hardaway Jr., who missed 20 games earlier this season with a stress injury in his left leg, departed early against Milwaukee after Giannis Antetokounmpo accidentally kicked him in said leg, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post.

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

This will mark a very unfortunate end to what would've been his first year an NBA All-Star.

Porzingis went up for a dunk with Antetokounmpo defending him, but the Latvian landed awkwardly, tweaking his knee in the wrong direction and was in considerable pain.

Porzingis entered play Tuesday averaging a team-leading 22.9 points per game and an NBA-high 2.4 blocks per game.

The storm will move up over New England on Thursday with a high pressure system moving rapidly behind the departing low pressure. In the Buffalo metro area, more than 6 inches is possible between about 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., forecasters said.

So without further ado, let's take a deeper look at what stood out in the Bucks' win over the New York Knicks on Tuesday night. If New York made a decision to wait and offer Porzingis an extension in the summer of 2019, it would create an additional $10 million in cap space for the club that summer.

"I'm no doctor but I think the ACL surgeries we've seen a lot in professional sports now have gotten better and better, " Perry said. "Best wishes and have a speedy healthy recovery". All of them were chosen for the All-Star game to play for Team LeBron. It's worth taking a flier on either of them - Beasley first - as we wait to see how New York's frontcourt rotation will shake out sans Porzingis and/or following the trade deadline.

In the video above, get a look at the play in which Giannis Antetokounmpo jumps over Tim Hardaway Jr. for what could be the most incredible National Basketball Association dunk of the year.

The Knicks entered their game against the Bucks four games out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference, having lost 10 of 14.

The Knicks probably would have needed to find some help by Thursday's trade deadline, and perhaps they would have tried given Porzingis' stated desire for a playoff push.

Judge maintains Assange UK arrest warrant
Swedish prosecutors had already dropped their investigation over sexual assault and rape allegations, which he denies. The 46-year-old sought refuge in London's Ecuadorian Embassy in 2012 to escape extradition to Sweden.

Porzingis had at least given NY reason to entertain playoff hopes in a season that started days after Carmelo Anthony was traded to Oklahoma City.

The 7-foot-3 Porzingis was the Knicks' leading scorer with 22.7 points per game and he led the National Basketball Association in blocked shots with 2.4 a contest.

The only thing he couldn't really do is put to rest injury concerns that often follow players at his age and size.

Ultimately, Porzingis' injury should alter the Knicks' thinking over the final two months of the season. "Youth will be on his side in terms of his ability to heal and fight through this and come back bigger, better and stronger".

Knicks coaches and medical personnel came over to attend to Porzingis on the baseline.
