Dwayne Bacon of the Charlotte Hornets showed his support for a former college teammate that suffered an in-game injury on Sunday.

The NBA is back and fans are thriving off the restart of the season. However, one young player on the Charlotte Hornets had to see something terrible happen to one of his former college teammates.

On Sunday, Dwayne Bacon’s former college teammate, Jonathan Isaac, suffered an injury during the Orlando Magic’s game against the Sacramento Kings. Isaac fell to the ground and suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter.

After his injury, many took to social media to mock his injury. Many of the comments dealt with Isaac’s incident from a few days ago, where he refused to kneel for the National Anthem. However, Bacon took to twitter to show Isaac support Sunday night.

Bacon shared a tweet from Hoop Central after the account reported that fans were making fun of Isaac’s injury. In his tweet, Bacon said, “Smh people are sick pray for my brother!!” Three hours before this tweet, Bacon also tweeted the praying emoji.

According to Marc Spears of The Undefeated, the Magic fear that Isaac suffered a torn ACL. This injury usually takes 9-10 months to properly heal.

Bacon has a history for Isaac, as they both played for Florida State University. Since these players have a personal history, it’s easy for fans to see why Bacon wanted to show support.

Both of these players have played their own respected roles on their team. Bacon only played in 39 games this season, where he averaged 5.7 points and 2.6 rebounds per game. Isaac, however, played in 33 games, where he averaged 12.1 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.

Even though the Charlotte Hornets are not playing, it’s nice to see their players paying attention to these games. While the bubble is almost a quarter of the way done, the Hornets will still look towards playing in December.
