Slow-Mo Video Shows How Damaging Serge Ibaka’s Elbow Was To Kawhi Leonard’s Face (VIDEO)
Kawhi Leonard had 21 points last night against the Denver Nuggets, but his night ended early after he took a vicious elbow to the face from Serge Ibaka.
During the 121-108 win over the Nuggets — the Los Angeles Clippers superstar left bloodied and laying on the court after teammate Serge Ibaka inadvertently elbowed him in the teeth amid a fight for a loose ball late in the fourth quarter.
Slow motion video shows just how badly that elbow truly was:
Leonard was able to stand up and walk to the locker room, but was quickly ruled out for the rest of the game.
The Clippers later announced that Leonard needed eight stitches to close a mouth laceration.
