That is the worst injury I

That is the worst injury I have ever seen in a basketball game before. It looked like his bone just split in half or something. It was so bad that they couldn't even show the replay of it more than once. I just hope he is able to walk on that leg fully again. That was terrible.

I've seen the Livingston

I've seen the Livingston injury, Marcus Lattimore, even Joe Theissman's freakish injury, this to me was the worst I've ever seen. You could literally see the bone sticking out and the skin dangling. The saddest part is that it came off a routine basketball play just a freakish accident. My prayers absolutely go out to him and his family.

This injury looks absolutely

This injury looks absolutely horrible... but its really not that big a deal. Its just a broken leg. It will heal well with the right surgeon. ANY knee injury is much worse long term. I'm 100% sure this player has had a "headache" in his leg for weeks now. It feels like a dull ache in the bone which is always there. Its usually due to an undiagnosed stress fracture or severe shin splints. Keep playing on it and this is what can happen.

I saw this in my gym once. A guy I know had been limping for a couple weeks on a sore leg but after he warmed up his leg was normal. He grabbed a rebound and landed with both feet just fine, but when he pivoted to turn around and run up court his leg broke in half just like this guys. Its NASTY to see in person. He was walking on his cast in 6 weeks. Had the cast off at 12 weeks. Spent another 2-3 months slowly getting his conditioning back and he was good as new at about 6-7 months. Knee injuries don't do that.

You're right. Once I heard it

You're right. Once I heard it was just a broken leg, I felt a little bit better for him. I got hit by a car a coupel years ago and broke my tibia and fibula. Even though it was a bad break, I was able to walk around after 10 weeks or so, and could play basketball another month after that.

Tendons and ligaments just aren't as resilient as bones.... and the science on repairing them isn't quite up to snub either.

This injury reminds me of one

This injury reminds me of one I saw in mma years ago to a guy named Corey hill who broke his fibula and tibula and the lower half his leg hung there similar to the Louisville players. He was unable to walk for 6 months and then needed another 4 months of rehab and was back to almost normal in 1 year and has gotten his fighting career back on track. Just throwing that out there for some perspective on potential timeframe for his comeback if things all go well.

"Ryan Anderson ‏@ryananderson33 7h I'm glad to see Kevin Ware's surgery went well. They said he could be back in playing shape in 6-9 months!!! My prayers go out to him!"

Corey Hill's injury was different in that he snapped/shattered the leg via impact on a kick and then stepped on the same leg further damaging the break.
