Philadelphia guard Xavier Silas suffered a possible skull fracture during a NBA summer league game Friday.

The NBA summer leagues are a time for young players to prove their mettle as they try to make their way into the league. Friday, however, the thought of making the team was the least of concerns as 76ers guard Xavier Silas suffered a possible skull fracture in a game against Detroit.

The injury apparently happened as Silas was guarding Pistons guard Casper Ware. As Ware drove to the basket for a shot, somehow Silas ended up falling to the ground, landing in chairs. A later report on NBA TV indicated Silas was transported to a local hospital.

The 24-year-old guard went undrafted in 2011 after finishing his college career at Northern Illinois. He played with the 76ers during preseason last year and spent the season with the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League.
