Indiana Pacers Paul George is recovering from surgery this morning at a Las Vegas hospital after suffering an open tibia-fibula fracture.

“Thanks everybody for the love and support.. I’ll be ok and be back better than ever!!! Love y’all!! #YoungTrece,” George Tweeted late Friday night.

During Team USA’s showcase at UNLV’s Thomas & Mack Center on Friday night, the NBA star was blocking a layup in the 4th quarter when he landed on the basket stanchion, which caused the hair raising injury. The small forward had a successful operation at Vegas’ Sunrise Hospital, but it’s still unclear how long the player will be out.

WARNING: VIDEO IS GRAPHIC

“It is way too early to speculate on his return, as the No. 1 priority for everyone will be his recovery,” Pacers team president Larry Bird said in a statement. “Our initial discussions with our doctors and the doctors in Las Vegas have us very optimistic. We are hopeful at some point next week Paul will return to Indianapolis to continue his recovery.”

“Any discussion regarding the future of our team would be inappropriate at this time,” Bird said. “Our focus is solely on Paul and doing whatever we can to help. We still support USA Basketball and believe in the NBA’s goals of exposing our game, our teams and players worldwide … This is an extremely unfortunate injury that occurred on a highly-visible stage, but could also have occurred anytime, anywhere.”

Following the injury, social media blew up with reactions, particularly from his NBA family.

#Pray4PG,” Dwyane Wade posted on Instagram, including an image of he and George on the court.

A video has gone viral of a group of white high school students screaming what appears to be “f*ck ni**ers,” but is there more to the disgusting clip?

The horrendous visual, which went viral earlier this week, shows three girls from Weber High School in Utah yelling the offensive phrase at the top of their lungs.

“We are shocked by the conduct of these students and the contents of the video,” Weber School District said in a statement of the 10 second video. “School officials have started an investigation and the matter is being taken very seriously.”

They added, “We are trying to determine when the video was made, where it was filmed, why the students would engage in such conduct, and how the clip ended up on social media.”

While folks around the nation are disgusted by the disturbing occurrence, some school officials might be defending the group of perceived racists teens.

The district confirmed that an IT guy is looking into the video to see if there was an original video that was put into an app to make a phrase play backwards.

So what could the girls possibly been saying? “Surgeon cuff.” Ummmm, because there’s nothing like yelling “surgeon cuff” in the middle of the day.
