Indiana Pacers star Paul George suffered a broken leg during the USA Basketball scrimmage in Las Vegas.

When George went up to try to block a fastbreak layup attempt by James Harden in the fourth quarter his leg landed awkwardly against the backstop. George’s leg snapped below the knee cap, suffering an open tibia-fibula fracture in his right leg in Friday night’s game at UNLV. He was treated immediately and a stretcher was brought out for him.

Players on the court, including Harden, curled over in shock, and his parents immediately rushed out onto the court.
