Alperen Sengun, the Houston Rockets’ rising star, experienced a chilling moment on the court that left fans and teammates holding their breath. The third-year center, who has been a beacon of hope for the Rockets with his impressive average of 21.2 points, 9.4 rebounds, and five assists per game, suffered a worrisome leg injury during a tense moment in the game.

Sengun, known for his strategic play and integral role in the Rockets’ offense, encountered the misfortune while defensively targeting Kings’ center Domantas Sabonis. In an effort to thwart Sabonis’ shot, Sengun leaped but his landing took a disastrous turn, leading to an awkward fall that immediately signaled distress. The sight of him clutching his right knee while in evident pain, followed by his exit from the court in a wheelchair with his head buried in his hands, was a sobering sight for all in attendance.

While a video capturing the incident does exist, it comes with a caution for its graphic nature, potentially unsettling for sensitive viewers.

In the aftermath of this unsettling event, Sengun is slated for an MRI to assess the extent of the injury to his right knee and ankle, with updates eagerly awaited by the Rockets’ community and sports journalists alike, including ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski who reported on the upcoming medical evaluation.

Despite the shadow cast by Sengun’s injury, the Rockets managed to secure a victory against the Kings with a final score of 112-104, propelled by Fred VanVleet’s standout performance of 22 points, showcasing the team’s resilient spirit and balanced offensive strategy.

The incident has sparked an outpouring of support for Sengun, with fans and teammates alike hoping for positive news from the forthcoming MRI results. As the Rockets navigate this challenging time, the focus remains on Sengun’s recovery and the impact his absence may have on the team’s dynamics moving forward.
