Kristaps Porzingis is officially on the road to recovery.

The Knicks on Tuesday announced that their star center underwent "successful surgery" to repair a torn ACL in his left knee.

According to ESPN, Porzingis is expected to be sidelined at least 10 months while he rehabilitates.

Porzingis, who previously missed 26 games in his first NBA season, was hurt in a Feb. 6 game against the Bucks. While a timetable for his return isn't exact, recovering from an ACL tear can take anywhere from seven to 12 months.

Porzingis, 22, was averaging 22.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game through 48 games this season before he was injured. He was also selected to the All-Star Game, though he was replaced by Hornets point guard Kemba Walker.
