Timofey Mozgov Was a Bloody Mess After Taking an Elbow to the Face (Video)

This post is about Timofey Mozgov and Bismack Biyombo, so you know it’s going to be good.

On Monday night in Charlotte, Mozgov, the Nuggets’ 7’1″ center, took an inadvertent elbow from Biyombo, the Hornets’ 6’9″ center. It looked like just a glancing blow. Mozgov was trying go up for a shot underneath the basket and he brushed into Bismack’s elbow. It didn’t seem like a huge deal.

However, after a foul was called, Mozgov was bent over in pain. Then the camera gave us a close-up of the guy’s face as he headed to the bench and, oh my, so much blood. Turn’s out Bismack’s elbow had given him quite a gash.

Take a look. You can see the contact at the 0:22 mark. Look closely or you’ll miss it.

It should go without saying—but I’ll say it anyway—if you are squeamish, you probably shouldn’t watch this:

Did you see the blood just gush out of that gash near the corner of his eye? It looked like he was crying blood like some religious statue in the Philippines. Totally creepy.
