No break or fracture. MRI still to be done so this rules out the worst of the worst.

Best case scenario is hyperextension still.

I really hope he comes out of this okay. Dude has some serious talent and its always sad to see a great player hurt early in their career

MRI is what will show the worst of the worst.

lol this, I don't know how an upper or lower leg break would be worse than the likely ACL, MCL, meniscus, hopefully nothing wrong with the patella area.


Feel so fckn bad for the kid, its a bunch of sht that he couldn't go straight to the NBA.

A tear and a fracture would really set him back

Praying for him to stay safe srs

If I'm a GM drafted outside the lottery, I'm chomping at the bits to see if he falls that far. With how bad this draft class is, I'd still draft him in a second even with a torn ACL in February.

Best case scenario is hyperextension still.A torn ACL is much worse than a break.

I hope he's okay. But maybe it's a sign that he should stay another year and not a one and done. Maybe work for the future and his offensive game.

I hope I'm wrong, but the way his knee bent, I'm almost certain there's a tear. It looked like Shaun Livingston's knee when he went down a few years ago and the guy ended up with a torn ACL/PCL/meniscus AND sprained his MCL + a couple of other things.

And now he's dropping dimes on fools.

Don't see any reason he comes out unless he gets a guarantee that some team will draft him Top 15 at least, specifically a Lottery team. If you're OKC, what do you have to lose by drafting him and waiting for him to return by the end of the season?

If he does recover 100%. He'll go Top 5 in 2014 with that stacked Kentucky squad and that's significantly more money than sitting around hoping some team takes a flyer on him in the 20's.

Next year will be stacked. I could definitely see him being taken outside of the top 5. Wiggins, Randle, Parker, Harrison twins, Chris Walker, Aaron Gordon could all go high next year.
