Kristaps Porzingis appears to be in good spirits.
A day after undergoing surgery to repair his torn left ACL, Porzingis offered an encouraging message for fans in an Instagram post.
Kristaps Porzingis’ surgery will keep him out until the middle of next season, but the Knicks star appears to be in good spirits.
“First of all I want to thank you for all the love and support,” Porzingis wrote. “Im (sic) attacking my rehab right away. I truly believe that with consistent hard work, patience and positive attitude I’ll come back stronger, better and sharper than ever. Much love”
The caption was posted underneath a photo of Porzingis riding home from the hospital after the operation. He has a large stabilizing brace on his left leg and is giving a salute to the camera. Porzingis added a heart emoji, an orange diamond, a blue diamond and a Latvian flag at the end of the post.
The 7-3 forward tore his ACL just over a week ago when he landed awkwardly after a dunk against the Bucks. He will miss the remainder of this season and likely a good chunk of next season, as the Knicks take a cautious approach to their franchise player’s rehabilitation.
