The Pacers' superstar suffered what might be one of the worst injuries anyone's ever seen while chasing down a block during the fourth quarter of the Team USA Basketball Showcase.

Paul George has suffered a serious leg injury during the fourth quarter of the USA Basketball Showcase on Friday night. George was chasing down James Harden on a fast break when he ran into the stanchion underneath the basket. His leg bent sideways, a la Shaun Livingston.

George's status is uncertain. He is being transported to a local hospital, where a full diagnosis will be made.

We won't show the replay because it was that bad. ESPN didn't even show replays more than once. After a long delay, the coach and players made the decision to cut the scrimmage short.

Players were stunned.

The reaction upon seeing the immediate replay was swift.

Afterwards, USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo told reporters that no roster decisions will be made "for a while" in the wake of George's injury. "We are going to let a little bit of time go before we address [the roster situation]," he said.
