Thaddeus Young leaves Nets-Hornets with left knee injury

Brooklyn Nets forward Thaddeus Young left the Nets-Hornets game during the third quarter with a knee injury. Young collided with Hornets guard Gerald Henderson on a fast-break and his left knee buckled outward, causing him to crumple to the floor in obvious pain. He was unable to move for a few minutes.

Young did walk off the court without assistance, but walked immediately to the locker room. NetsDaily’s Reed Wallach uploaded a Vine of the incident:

Young was diagnosed by the team with a hyperextended left knee and x-rays came back negative. He will be re-evaluated Thursday. According to Mrs. Young, it was good news.
