NBA players were quick to send their best wishes to Kristaps Porzingis after the All-Star tore his ACL against the Bucks on Tuesday night. 

The injury happened when Porzingis landed awkwardly after he threw down a dunk over fellow All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo. Porzingis appeared to come down on Antetokounmpo's ankle and immediate grabbed his left knee while in visible pain. He was helped of the floor and left the arena for an MRI, which confirmed the tear.

Porzingis' injury is the latest in an NBA season full of them. Other players to have suffered season-ending injuries include Gordon Hayward, DeMarcus Cousins and Mike Conley. Like Porzingis, Kevin Love and John Wall suffered injuries since making the All-Star team and will not be able to play in the game.
