Former Indiana Pacers star Paul George has sent a message to the team's current franchise player, Victor Oladipo, who appeared to suffer a serious injury tonight.

Oladipo, the Pacers' All-Star guard, had to be carted off the floor on a stretcher after appearing to suffer a serious leg injury.

The Pacers' star guard had an awkward fall on one end of the court tonight and was down for several minutes, before getting taken off on a stretcher.

It didn't look good.

George, the Pacers' former star player, unfortunately knows what it's like to suffer a serious leg injury. The Oklahoma City Thunder's star guard suffered a major leg injury during a Team USA scrimmage several summers ago. He's since made his way back and has been playing at an All-NBA level this season. George took to Twitter tonight to send a message to Oladipo. "Prayers up VO," George tweeted.

Oladipo has been having a somewhat down season compared to his career year in 2017-18, but he's still been playing at an All-Star level. The Pacers' star is averaging 19 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds a game.

The Pacers have yet to issue an official injury update for Oladipo. Stay tuned for updates surrounding the star guard.
