1. Last night, NBA super-prospect and Kentucky Wildcat Nerlens Noel went up to block a shot and came down in a lot of pain.
2. A Florida player went to help him…
3. But Noel fell to the ground.
4. And writhed in pain.
7. And in an awesome display of team spirit, his teammates lifted him off the ground…
8. And when he couldn’t walk, they carried him…
9. Down the tunnel to medical help.
Noel apparently left the arena in a wheelchair, and though his X-Rays thankfully came back negative. We’re still waiting to hear on his MRI.
10. Here’s hoping we didn’t just lose one of the most exciting players in the country for the rest of the season.
I’m serious. Thoughts and prayers, Nerlens. Thoughts and prayers.
11. UPDATE: The diagnosis is not good.
12. Watch the painful video here:
- The battle to replace Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died Saturday, is expected to elevate the role of the court in an unprecedented way.
- U.S. Republican presidential candidates had their nastiest debate yet in South Carolina 🇺🇸
- And "Deadpool" made $135 million this weekend, the best U.S. debut for an R-rated film. That's a lotta chimichangas 💵
