Pacers star Victor Oladipo suffers serious right knee injury vs. Raptors

The Indiana Pacers are playing some really good basketball, but they just suffered a potentially devastating blow to their hopes of making a deep run in the playoffs.

All-Star guard Victor Oladipo sustained a gruesome-looking right knee injury during the Pacers' game against the Raptors on Wednesday.

The injury occurred with just over four minutes remaining in the second quarter. Raptors guard Kyle Lowry tried to hit forward Pascal Siakam with an outlet pass. Oladipo attempted to break up the pass, and it appears his knee buckled.

On the Pacers' Fox Sports Indiana broadcast, you could hear Oladipo screaming. When the trainers made a quick assessment of what had happened, they put a towel over his knee.

Oladipo was put on a stretcher and wheeled to the locker room.

The Pacers have announced that Oladipo suffered a "serious injury" to his right knee and will undergo an MRI.

The Warriors are set to take on the Pacers on Monday night in Indiana.

Oladipo made his first All-Star team last season. This season, he's averaging 19.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game.

The Pacers are all too familiar with serious leg injuries to their stars. In 2014, Paul George broke his right leg during a scrimmage for the U.S. national team prior to the FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Steph Curry sneaks in odd phrases at All-Star Weekend for Jimmy Fallon

Steph Curry sneaks in odd phrases at All-Star Weekend for Jimmy Fallon

Steph Curry is a pretty good sport.

Before the Warriors star took off to All-Star Weekend, Late Night host Jimmy Fallon asked Curry to sneak a few phrases into his media interviews throughout the weekend.

Fallon revealed the bit during Monday night's episode of "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon."

Curry snuck in the phrases "energizer bunny," "flippin' pancakes," and "Wham Bam Can of Ham" two times each, and nobody appeared to notice. 

Steph appeared to enjoy his experience with it all.

"Energizer bunny" and "flippin' pancakes" seemed pretty easy for the two-time MVP to mix into his interviews, but "Wham Bam Can of Ham?" What even is that?

Fallon himself had high praise for the three-time champ for agreeing to participate.
