New York Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis is going to be a little sore. During a collision during Tuesday nights game against the Indiana Pacers, the Latvian native needed to be helped off the floor by trainers and teammates.

Officially listed as a left thigh contusion, the play looked like it put Porzingis in some pretty significant pain.

Here’s the play:

Porzingis said after the game that he didn’t think it was serious to warrant missed time. He’s likely going to be walking around for a few days with a serious muscle bruise.

Everyone in New York just exhale.
