Jeremy Lamb Suffers Torn ACL, Meniscus and Knee Fracture vs. Raptors
The Indiana Pacers were blown out on Sunday, but at the end of the night, the final score was the least of their concerns.
During the first half, Jeremy Lamb streaked towards the basket for a dunk attempt and collided with Toronto Raptors rookie guard Terence Davis who went up to prevent the easy two-point play. Lamb would land awkwardly and remained on the hardwood for a few minutes before getting up and making two free-throws.
Lamb was taken out of the game immediately and was helped out to the locker room where he underwent more tests.
On Monday morning, the team announced that Lamb suffered a torn ACL, a torn meniscus, as well as a left knee fracture and would miss the remainder of the season. Lamb was in the midst of the first year of a three-year, $31.3 million deal with the Pacers.
The 27 year old was averaging 12.5 points per game this season.
