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.

“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.

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
