Indiana Pacers Star Paul George Breaks Leg During USA Basketball Scrimmage [VIDEO]

During a USA Basketball scrimmage last night in Las Vegas, Indiana Pacers all-star Paul George fractured both his tibia and fibula in a gruesome accident, putting his 2014-15 season in jeopardy.

George’s leg buckled after he fouled Houston Rockets star James Harden on a drive to the basket.

It was immediately obvious that George’s injury was very, very bad. Upon seeing George’s leg, Harden crouched on the court, visibly shaken. Other USA Basketball players were also visibly upset, as their teammate was treated on the court for nearly 15 minutes.

George posted the following to Twitter, shortly after leaving the arena:
