During the EuroLeague game last night against Baskonia, James Nunnally gave the ball on the fast break and dunked it. Afterwards, he fell down after the dunk and he couldn’t stand up.
It was first determined that there was no permanent damage to Nunnally as he also got the neck and spine tests. However, follow-up tests confirmed that Nunnally suffered a pretty serious hand injury. As a result of the tests on Nunnally, doctors determined that the left hand of the veteran player was broken.
