Warning: Not for the faint of heart.
There are sports injuries that are tough to watch, and then there are sports injuries that are tough to even read in a headline. One such injury that falls into both categories is "Dislocated Teeth."
Chicago Bulls point guard Kris Dunn suffered the cringeworthy injury during last night's 119-112 loss to the Golden State Warriors.
After stealing the ball from Klay Thompson and flushing a fast break dunk with 2:55 left in regulation, Dunn fell face first onto the hardwood. The video is incredibly tough to watch but if you care to check it out, help yourself.
According to ESPN, the 23-year old guard dislocated his two front teeth and chipped several teeth. He was also evaluated for potential concussion but was cleared of concussion symptoms. He is scheduled to be re-evaluated tomorrow.
"He didn't lose teeth," Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said. "There was a good little chunk that he took out of the floor. He's being evaluated. Tough kid."
In 40 games this season, Dunn's second in the NBA and first with the Bulls, he is averaging 13.7 points, 6.4 assists and 4.6 rebounds per night. The Bulls, 17-28, have a few days rest before returning to the court on Saturday night in Atlanta.
