Deni Avdija landed awkwardly on a rebound, and is headed to the locker room in a wheelchair with a knee injury.
Prayers up for him as he leaves the game in a wheelchair after an apparent lower leg injury.
He was seen on the floor, holding his leg and grimacing badly.

In the video shared on Twitter, he didn’t look like he could put any weight on his leg.
He’s wheeled off the floor with a towel over his head. Looks like he’s in extraordinary pain.
