Paul George suffered a gruesome lower right leg fracture during the U.S. national team’s intrasquad scrimmage at UNLV and underwent successful surgery late Friday night.

In a statement released after surgery was completed, USA Basketball confirmed George suffered an open tibia-fibula fracture and is expected to remain hospitalized for about three days. Dr. Riley Williams, a Team USA orthopedist who also works with the Brooklyn Nets, was with George.

Sources close to the situation told ESPN that while there didn’t appear to be additional damage besides the fractures, doctors believe George likely will miss all of next season, though no official prognosis has been given.

George’s leg landed and then buckled at the base of the basket stanchion after he fouled James Hardenon a drive to the basket just 27 seconds into the fourth quarter.
