According to CBS, Indiana Pacers guard/forward Paul George suffered a horrific leg injury in a Team USA scrimmage Friday night. He pursued James Harden in a transition defense, then landed awkwardly against the stanchion. A very disturbing ESPN replay left the viewing audience stunned because it showed George’s leg fracturing.
The scene was reminiscent of the awful leg injury suffered by Kevin Ware.
We’ve posted the video of the incident below.
WARNING….this video may be extremely disturbing.
