If viewing gut-wrenching injuries isn’t the thing for you, then you might want to stop reading this post now.
Playing for the Dominican Republic in the FIBA Americas Tournament, former Louisville guard Edgar Sosa fractured his tibia and fibula after colliding with a player from Panama on a drive to the hoop in the game’s final seconds. Gruesome video below:
John Calipari, the Dominican Republic’s head coach, tweeted shortly after the game:
“Please pray 4 @EdgarSosa10. He suffered a leg injury at the end of our game today. It’s one of the most devastating things I’ve been through”
Yesterday, Calipari tweeted that Sosa was still in the hospital, but in “great spirits.” Prior to the injury, Sosa was averaging 8.8 ppg in the tournament and was hoping to parlay a strong performance there into an eventual NBA roster spot.
