I think he fell wrong but I didn't really see until I saw him on the ground.

According to ESPN, Noel was kept overnight at Oklahoma University Medical Center.

Oklahoma City Thunder center Nerlens Noel had to be carried off the court on a stretcher Tuesday night after suffering a scary fall during a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves - and Thunder officials still hadn't provided an update or revealed the extent of Noel's injuries as of Wednesday morning.

So just how good has Andrew Wiggins been in Oklahoma City?

George scored 27 points and Steven Adams added 20 points and 12 rebounds for Oklahoma City. The play was ruled a common foul despite the clean elbow and Noel was taken to hospital on a stretcher soon after.

West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil futures (CLc1) settled up $1.26, or 2.6 percent, at $49.78 a barrel. With drilling activity still high, most analysts expect U.S. oil production to rise further this year.

After scoring 30 points in a Minnesota Timberwolves win over the Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena a few weeks back, Wiggins went for a season-high 40 points on Tuesday to bring his team a victory in OKC again. The 32-year-old was promoted to the role of interim head coach after Minnesota fired Tom Thibodeau earlier this week.

Continues Wiggins, "I look right through him".

He attacked the rim, drawing defenders from all over the court due to his hot hand, then calmly found a wide-open Josh Okogie in the corner who knocked down what would end up being the game-sealing triple. Wiggins said he didn't intend to hurt Noel on the dunk attempt.

Except, between Wiggins telling reporters, "I don't know what's wrong with him", and, "He was acting insane for no reason", video of the exchange appeared to show him say of Schroder, "He was just gay". He finished with eight points in 26 minutes. Wiggins was 16 of 18 from the free throw line. I said: "I don't know what's wrong with him he was just getting ... acting insane for no reason", he said on Twitter.
