Video of Paul George Leg injury (*warning graphic*)

Paul George has suffered a serious leg injury during the fourth quarter of the USA Basketball Showcase on Friday night. George was chasing down James Harden a fast break when he ran into the stanton underneath the basket. His leg bent sideways, a la Shaun Livingston. Teammates nearby immediately reacted with Harden doubling over as George recoiled on the baseline. Medics, U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski and members of George's family who were at the game rushed to his side. His right leg was put in an air cast and he was taken to a local hospital after being treated for about 15 minutes on the court. After he left in an ambulance, the rest of the game -- which pitted players in camp for the U.S. as it looks to trim its roster ahead of the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain that begins Aug. 30 -- was canceled. Head coach Mike Krzyzewski then went to center court and said that the rest of the game would not be played in respect for Paul George and George’s family. George was considered by some a lock for the team, which is working on whittling the group down from 20 players to 12 for the upcoming FIBA World Cup. However, this injury will likely keep him off the team because it looks pretty serious. Training for the World Cup goes through August 22, including several exhibition games. The World Cup then starts on August 30
