Andre Drummond

Bulls' Andre Drummond wheeled off court following bizarre dunk attempt

Andre Drummond was injured in one of the weirdest sequences you'll ever see on an NBA basketball court

Chicago Bulls center Andre Drummond exited Tuesday's game against the New York Knicks with an ankle injury after going up for a rebound. The injury followed one of the crazier sequences you'll ever see on an NBA basketball court.

Drummond forced a steal at the wing, creating a fast break opportunity for Bulls forward Torrey Craig. Craig, for some inexplicable reason, decided it would be wise to throw himself a lob off the backboard for a Sports Center top-10 slam dunk. Drummond, who was either going for the rebound or thought the pass was intended for him, jumped up behind Craig and went up for the dunk, too. Craig's initial dunk was short, and Drummond bounced the rebound off the back of the rim and into the hands of Knicks forward Bojan Bogdanovic. Drummond's injury occurred a few moments later at the other end of the floor.

Drummond laid on the court in what seemed like severe pain for an extended period before leaving the game in a wheelchair.
