While a relatively long time, a 10-plus month recovery period is nothing out of the ordinary for a torn ACL. Optimistically, he could return in the middle of December 2018, 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, posting 22.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game.

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.
