For those of you who missed it, Paul George was seriously injured during Friday night’s Team USA scrimmage.

During the fourth quarter, Paul accidentally slammed into the hard base behind the basket, which caused his right leg to give out, leaving him on the floor in gruesome pain.

The USA Basketball Showcase was then cut short out of respect for the Indiana Pacers player and his family. The game ended with 9:33 left and the white team leading 81-71.

New reports state George suffered a compound fracture of the tibia and fibula and is expected to have a rod placed in his leg.

"Thanks everybody for the love and support.. I'll be ok and be back better than ever!!! Love y'all!! #YoungTrece," Paul tweeted.

While most of the crowd reacted by covering their eyes in horror, celebs and fellow athletes had a different reaction on social media. Check out the tweets below.
