Players take to social media after gruesome injuries

Already a week into the NBA season and we’ve seen two injuries that have caught everyone’s attention.

On opening night Gordon Hayward suffered terrifying injury, fracturing his ankle. Jeremy Lin also ruptured his patella tendon in his right knee. Both of these injuries have ended Hayward and Lin’s seasons.

Lin knew right away that his season was over.

After sharing the court with Hayward that night, Lebron James gave his prayers out to him.

Players around the league took their reactions to twitter.

Lin wanted to thank everyone who showed him support after the injury.

The Celtics showed a video of Hayward at the hospital thanking everyone as well.
