Former NBA first-round pick Andre Roberson was stretchered off the court Saturday night following a brutal slip and fall during Oklahoma City Thunder’s matchup with the Detroit Pistons.

Roberson went up for an alley-oop from point guard Russell Westbrook and landed right on his tailbone. The other angle and subsequent wrapping up of his leg shows he may have suffered a devastating leg injury.

Roberson was drafted No. 26 overall in the 2013 NBA Draft. Over his NBA tenure, Roberson has averaged 4.6 points and 4.0 rebounds per game, but is one of Oklahoma City’s top defenders. It’s a devastating blow to the Thunder.
