Raptors Guard Terrence Ross is a marginal NBA player. He’s still a freak of an athlete, and one of the highest fliers in the NBA.
Last night, in the fourth quarter of Toronto’s 95-91 win over the Trail Blazers, Ross got a steal in transition and took it in for a nasty two-handed, 360 throwdown.

Ross punished the rim, but also did a number on his wrist. Shortly after the vicious rip, the Raptors team Twitter account tweeted out that Ross left the game with a sore left wrist, and wouldn’t return. Luckily, x-rays did not reveal a fracture.

Ross’ predicament is totally relatable. We’ve all hurt our wrist on a two-hand, 360 dunk. The difference? Ross didn’t do it on an 8-foot hoop in the backyard showing off for his kids.
At the very least, Ross’ injury is 10,000 times more badass than Dez Bryant cutting his hand while making soup.
