There are no lighting tricks going on in the photo below. Fellow teammate “Andre Roberson” accidentally kneed “Russell Westbrook” in the face during a game against the Portland Trailblazers. After he got up off the floor there was a notable change to his appearance, he had a dent in the right side of his face.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it, his face was actually dented like a car would be.
They let him go back and finish the game after this happened but notice how the soft tissue is not swelling up, no bruise. I also find it very strange that the soft tissue and skin are also dented. Has anyone ever seen this before?
It was later reported that he had successful facial surgery that repaired a fracture to the zygomatic arch of the right cheek. His surgery was performed by doctors at the Osborne Head and Neck Institute in Los Angeles, California. The zygomatic arch bone separates the eye socket from the sinuses.
