Damn that looks bad.  Here's hoping its a clean break with no ligament damage, he could potentially be back by the end of this season and at full strength by the start of next season if thats the case. 

 

Dont really want to think about the other possibilities

Holy sh*t that is absolutely horrible. I feel terrible for him. He was going to be the next NBA superstar.

I've decided not to watch the video clip. Prayers go out to PG24 for a speedy recovery.

All because that stupid f*cking stadium made the backstop 2 feet closer than NBA. Probably to fit more fans and cameramen in. F*ck man this is just so horrific.

I've always thought the backstops for goals were too close.  The safest goals are like the ones in Cameron....beams from the ceiling.

 Chasing down a block from behind at full speed. The stanchion was so close to the court that as he fell down instead of finishing the fall and at worst rolling his ankle, as he's falling, his lower leg is stopped by the stanchion and his forward momentum is so great that it snaps his entire lower leg.

 

He's fortunate the knee didn't go with it and it's just a tibial/fibial fracture. Not quite Kevin Ware disastrous, but way too close.

He went up and came down hard right up against the backstop. His foot had nowhere to slide so it snapped.

 

I've always thought the backstops for goals were too close.  The safest goals are like the ones in Cameron....beams from the ceiling.

 

Can't do that in major arenas, only shacks like Cameron.

 

It is what it is. Freak accidents happen. It's a shame. If I were a Pacers fan I'd be depressed.
