New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis leaves game with sore left knee

NBA


NEW YORK — New York Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis left Thursday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets in the third quarter because of a left knee injury.

Porzingis suffered the injury early in the third quarter. It appeared to be a noncontact injury. He asked out of the game immediately after suffering the injury, which occurred while defending Brooklyn’s Rondae Hollis Jefferson.

The severity of the ailment is unclear, as is Porzingis’ status for New York’s game against Carmelo Anthony and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday.

Any time missed by Porzingis would be a significant blow to the Knicks. The 22-year-old entered play Thursday averaging 26 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game and was a key reason New York was one game over .500 entering the game against Brooklyn.

Porzingis missed two games earlier this season due to a sprained right ankle.
