Late last night Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic suffered a devastating leg injury in double overtime against the Brooklyn Nets. *You can see the video by clicking HERE but be warned it’s very graphic).

Nurkic was later ruled out for the season after breaking both his fibia and tibia.

The morning after the tragic injury many NBA fans are outraged at NBA official Tyler Ford who carelessly walked over Nurkic’s leg and made contact with his foot.

Hopefully the NBA addresses the issue and makes sure that refs are more careful when players are lying on the ground.
