Deon Thomas suffers serious injury
Suffering what Haaretz called a freak training accident
, Deon Thomas, the all-time leading scorer in Illinois Basketball history, may have seen his pro career come to an end. The Jerusalem Post
said a loud cracking sound was heard as Thomas landed after jumping for a rebound
and his left shin broke into two
. According to the Euroleague official website, Thomas broke his leg so severely in practice that he was to undergo an operation later Wednesday night
. No word on the Internet yet on how that surgery went. Our thoughts and prayers here at Illini Wonk are with Deon.
