VIDEO: Thunder’s Steven Adams suffers scary fall, exits game
Adams was trying to complete a post-move over Lakers center JaVale McGee who tried going for the block. McGee instead slid under the Thunder big man’s landing space forcing Adams to bend his leg awkwardly as he went down.

The Thunder big man had to leave the game prematurely to get checked.
For Adams to leave a game, you know the injury must be painful since he’s one of the strongest players in the NBA. He did return shortly after though, proving that this reputation still remains intact.
Adams entered Wednesday averaging 11.0 points, 9.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game for the Thunder in 60 appearances.
